Joseph P. McClelland, III represents personal injury clients in:
Being an accident lawyer for car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle wrecks, dog attacks, and other types of Georgia personal injuries, I know injury law is complex.
In addition to physical injuries, other injuries can relate to emotional pain. Others relate to pain and suffering. Some types of injuries can create legal liability, but some do not. Call me to learn if you can recover money damages and the amount of likely recovery. We can explain the difference between special damages and general damages.

Police Report in a Car Wreck Lawsuit
Witnesses are believable. They were not in the accident. They have nothing to gain. Of course, these are generalizations, but the fact still stands.
Do You Really Need A Lawyer For A GA Personal Injury Claim?
Some things that will always require an attorney:
- you sustained any substantial damage to yourself. So, is any personal injuries are of significant nature, then these car accidents will always require a personal injury attorney.
- You missed substantial work.
- Your life is not the same because of permanent or long lasting disability or pain.
The reason why is that the insurance companies not going to value the extent of your injuries based upon the fact that others have come before you and have done things that maybe they should not have done so the the stakes are higher.
Another reason is about medical bills. What a law firms knows how to do settling medical bills with healthcare providers is tremendous and is something that did not know before entered the personal injury field. I am so glad to have answered your question on do you need an attorney for a personal injury case. So, the answer is sometimes no, but many times yes. In some cases, you have to have a lawyer such as motorcycle accidents, tractor trailer accidents, medical malpractice, faulty products, and wrongful death cases. Also, we have to prove the negligence in some cases that is not clear cut and may require accident reconstruction experts.
