Once you have all your medical and other accident-related reports in order, you can go visit a legal attorney for consultation. Initially, the attorney would review your case and tell you whether you have a valid case against the other person or not. They would also provide you with an estimate of the settlement amount you can actually get depending on the damage and injuries caused by the other person. Compare the settlement amount to the expenses that would be incurred in the legal proceedings and see if it would be worth it to go ahead with the lawsuit.
You can also decide to go ahead with the settlement lawsuit without having an attorney but that would be a huge risk. You can end up losing the settlement case or the other party would pressurize you to make an early settlement at a much lower amount. Therefore, while you may feel like you are in a position to handle the trial on your own, you may consider getting a lawyer for your auto accident lawsuit if you don't want to take a risk with the settlement amount. You will surely need a lawyer's help to have him walk you through the process of your case. Contact The LA Law Firm today for the best option of lawyers in California!
