Should I Consult a Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you’re wondering “Do I need a personal injury lawyer?” then the answer is “Yes.” Resolution of personal injury claims is an adversarial system. There are trained professionals on the other side. Insurance companies are experts and know every trick in the book to avoid paying claims. You need a zealous advocate who knows the law on your side to protect your rights and interests. An attorney is a licensed professional who provides legal advice and is ethically responsible to protect the rights of his or her clients. With an experienced attorney on your side, you have a better chance of getting the full compensation you are entitled to receive, which is why you should call an attorney before it’s too late.

What if I Don’t Want to Pay for a Consultation?
Perhaps you were in a minor accident and you have a feeling that the legal battle will not be worth the compensation. You may wonder “Do I need a personal injury lawyer?” or “Is it worth it?” Often, the best way to know for sure whether you need an attorney after a personal injury is to speak with one. Consultation with us is free. Do not wait to contact an attorney; an ounce of prevention is worth many pounds of cure and anxious hours. It never hurts to talk to an attorney when it is free, no matter what type of accident you were involved in: automobile, construction, defective products, road defects, or any otherwise unsafe conditions.
Is it Too Late for Me to Consult an Attorney?
Time is of the essence. It is better to consult a personal injury attorney sooner rather than later, before your rights are innocently given away or the ability to preserve evidence is lost. You should also be aware of the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in Alaska.
However, until you have a signed agreement and have received a check, it is not too late to contact an attorney. You should never accept the first offer from the other driver’s insurance company and make sure to consult an attorney you can trust before agreeing to any settlement.
