DO NOT SIGN INSURANCE FORMS UNTIL YOU'VE TALKED TO AN ATTORNEY!
When you are injured in a car accident and you are not at fault,
you need a personal injury attorney to protect your rights.

not need a lawyer. Insurance companies try to play hero and
convince the injured person that they will pay them the
compensation they deserve.
