Will I need a lawyer after my accident in Morehead?
For accidents that basically only involve property damage a lawyer probably won’t be able to improve your outcome by all that much.
It’s a different story if you suffer a serious injury. Insurance companies can leave you to sit with a stack of hospital bills and unable to return to your job, all while they stall to wait until you are desperate. They want you to be vulnerable to accepting any lowball offer they extend to you. Contact Morehead’s Kaufman & Stigger, PLLC, to talk to a lawyer with experience in making sure victims aren’t treated unfairly.
