FAQ: Am I Required to Hire a Virginia Personal Injury Attorney?
If you’ve been involved in a car accident or you suffered a personal injury in the state of Virginia, you are not required to hire an attorney. You can represent yourself in the court of law, but whether or not you should do this is debatable.
If you are very familiar with Virginia accident injury laws and understand court procedures, then perhaps you do not need an attorney. You may also want to consider the severity of the injury, the amount of investigation involved, and how much money is at stake when deciding whether or not to go at it alone.
It never hurts to speak with an attorney to find out if your problem is something that you can work out yourself or if it will help to have the support of an experienced attorney. Most attorneys do offer a free consultation. A knowledgeable Virginia personal injury attorney may know laws or have resources that you may not be aware of.
