How Important is it to get an attorney if I’ve been in an accident?
Well, it’s essential. If you have a toothache. Only a fool would pull out their own tooth. If you have a toothache you go to a professional. If you have a legal issue you go to a lawyer.
Now, there’s no requirement that you seek legal help. You can represent yourself and proceed pro se, which is basically someone that’s representing themselves, but as an attorney who represents himself in a legal matter- anyone that represents themself- an attorney that represents himself or herself has a fool for a client. It is a tremendous mistake to proceed alone. You can do this on your own. There’s no preclusion in the law that says a lay person can’t represent themselves, but they really should at the very least seek legal counsel at the beginning.
