Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – Do I need an attorney for my auto accident?

I received a call recently from someone who was in a rear-end collision. They refused medical care at the scene. After a couple of days their pain was bothering them so bad they had someone transport them to the hospital. Luckily it turned out that they did not have serious injuries and were released from the hospital diagnosed with whiplash.

I asked the caller how they were feeling and they said they were fine and would not be getting additional treatment. I then asked how I could help them. They wanted to know if they needed an attorney. In this caller case I did not feel that they needed an attorney. Clearly this person has damages, (hospital, professional service fee, and radiology bill), but the bills are the only damages. The caller did not miss any work, and the property damage or vehicle was totaled and paid.

In the grand scheme of things, this matter will not have a great deal of pain and suffering attached to it. As a result if an attorney gets involved it likely will not get the person involved in the accident enough to pay their medical bills.

In matters where there is limited treatment, it does not necessarily benefit someone to obtain an attorney.

All cases vary as far as medical treatment, injuries, and damages. If you ever have any questions is it always better to be safe than sorry. Consult with a Car Crash Attorney free of charge to see if legal representation is what is best for you in your specific matter. If you do not have an attorney, call my office at 770-948-5454 and I will be more than happy to discuss your claim and what is best for you.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
