The Law and You July 2, 2013
Q. I was involved in a minor fender bender. No one was hurt, at least that is what I thought. Now the other guy is claiming all kind of injuries and I am sure that he is faking it. Do I hire a lawyer?
A. The answer is yes, you do need to hire a lawyer. Now, if you carry automobile insurance, your insurance will hire and pay for a lawyer for you. However, you have the right to be involved in and make decisions in your case since you are the defendant and the lawyer is representing you. If you think the guy that you hit is faking it and you have proof of that fact, make sure that you lawyer fully investigates and develops the issue. If you don't think the lawyer is doing a good job defending you, I would then suggest that you call your insurance company and demand that another lawyer be put on the case.
