Do I need an attorney if I already have a settlement offer?

Hiring an experienced and skilled attorney to handle your case is an important step towards the successful resolution of your case. Most clients are seeking financial compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, future care needs, reconstructive surgery, property damages or detriment caused by a wrongful death.
