Rob Rosenthal: 

Do you need an attorney after you've been injured in a car crash or can you handle the insurance claims yourself? Well, that's what we asked Hawaii lawyer Wayne Parsons for this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.

Wayne Parsons: 

If a client thinks, "Gee, I didn't... It really wasn't much of an accident. I've got my own insurance that's gonna repair my car, and even though the other driver was at fault, if I could get $500, I'd be happy." You might be able to... They might be able to do that on their own, but they also would be taking a gigantic risk that they have a lot more losses than they think, and down the road, they're gonna kick themselves that they took $500, 'cause when they took that $500, they had to sign a piece of paper. And that piece of paper said, you're giving up everything forever. It costs a person nothing to hire a lawyer. The lawyer works on a contingency fee. All lawyers work on a contingency fee, and on motor vehicle cases, they're not gonna get paid until the end of the case, and they're only gonna get paid if they get money for the client.
