If you are involved in an automobile accident, you need to get advice from an attorney before you settle your case.  Once you are offered a settlement from the other driver's insurance, you need to make sure it will cover all of your future medical expenses, your lost earnings from work and your pain and suffering.
 Most attorneys will talk with you at no charge regarding an accident case.  If someone else was at fault, you need to know your options before you sign the check from the insurance company to settle the case.  Once you sign the check, you can be stopped from getting anymore benefits.  You need to check with an attorney before you settle your accident case, especially if you or any passengers in your vehicle were injured.
