Generally speaking, if you are in any kind of pain or discomfort (typically neck or back pain) that did not exist prior to a fender bender, the answer is YES. To this, I am often met with the following question: But Jason, if I’m only in a little bit of pain, I’ll just go see a chiropractor or doctor, get my treatment and move on with my life; so why should I talk to a lawyer who is only going to take a fee from what I would otherwise get on my own!? What most people do not realize is: If, after an accident, you see a chiropractor or other doctor and your (or the other driver’s) auto insurance pays your rehabilitation bills (on time and in full), my firm would not take a dime from those medical expenses. We only take a fee if we get you money that you ordinarily would not have received on your own. You have, literally, nothing to lose by letting our firm handle your claim. Let me explain further:
At the end of the doctor or chirpractor-prescribed treatment process your doctor or chiropractor will eventually say, I have done all I can to help / rehabilitate you, (a term called Maximum Medical Improvement, or MMI), which in relatively minor accidents may only take a few months.
