A: Yes, you should consult with a lawyer---you want to make sure that you are protected----Use the Find a Lawyer tab and search for injury/accident lawyers in your area and contact a few of them----most give free, no obligation first meetings on these type cases----I know my firm does----so take them up on it and hire the one with whom you are most comfortable. Additionally, if you have not done so, you need to report the collision to your employer. Also, if you were in your own vehicle, then you need to report the collision to your insurance company---Good luck.

A: Yes, you should contact an attorney. You are eligible for damages for lost income, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Your ability to get a fair result with an attorney is significantly higher and should be sought out. There are likely numerous facts about the situation that an attorney can help you navigate - from insurance coverages, to liability issues, to witness statements and other investigation. Our office handles these types of cases, but regardless, an attorney's input should be obtained.
