Speakers: Kevin L. Edwards and Pedro “Peter” de la Cerda


Do I Need a Lawyer For a Fender Bender?


Kevin: We get quite a few questions from callers and friends and family asking, [omitted] I was in a minor car accident. Should I really hire a lawyer, even though it was [omitted] just a minor fender bender?


Peter: The kind of response we’d have to that is, what you need in those circumstances, even if you believe it’s a minor collision, you need the perspective of an experienced lawyer to look at all the facts of the case. [You] don’t know, even if at the moment of the accident, it seems minor, you may have sustained an injury that actually does have a long-lasting, permanent, and serious effect on your life.


How Can a Minor Car Accident Lawyer Help Me?


Peter: [So] you need the attorney’s perspective to then guide you through the process, take a look at everything from the property damages, to what injuries you may have sustained, to what kind of medical care you can get, to what ultimately can be the recovery from the available insurance. There are so many things that need to be looked at.


All it takes is a simple call to DFW Injury Lawyers. We can take a look at the case, look at all those factors for you, and if it’s a case [that’s] worthy of pursuing, we’ll let you know. If not, we’ll let you know that as well, and ultimately that consultation’s free anyway.


Should I Get a Medical Check-up After a Minor Car Accident?


Kevin: And it’s also important to remember that even though you may think that it is a minor car accident, some of the injuries that are sustained are hard to determine. And so, you could have a lifelong problem after that accident. You may think it’s just a hurt neck or a sprain. Well, those sprains and those pains could be the result of a herniation. And so before you go and just sign off settlement paperwork with the insurance company, just know that you need to have all the medical treatment possible and get a clear view of those injuries so that you are not down the road [omitted] still suffering from those injuries.
