Some people question whether or not they should contact a personal injury attorney if they have sustained serious injuries as a result of an accident, due to no fault of their own. The answer is yes, it is absolutely imperative that legal counsel is retained. Unfortunately, however, not everyone will contact a personal injury attorney when they have been involved in an accident.
