There’s no doubt about it — hiring an attorney can be a confusing process. How do you know if you actually need an attorney? If you do, what steps do you take? At The Law Office of Fredson Statmore Bitterman, we know it’s overwhelming. That’s why we’re sharing four of the most common misconceptions about hiring a lawyer.

Misconception 1: You Don’t Need an Attorney if You’re Not at Fault
If you’ve been injured in an accident, even if you believe that you are not at fault, it’s important to speak with an attorney. You may be entitled to compensation even if you were not the one who caused the accident.
Misconception 2: All Lawyers Are the Same
When it comes to finding the right lawyer, it’s important to do your research. In other words, not everyone is well suited to take your case. Make sure you find a lawyer who has experience in the area of law that applies to your case.
Misconception 3: I Don’t Have to Pay for an Attorney if I Win My Case
Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, which means you don’t have to pay any fees unless you win your case. This way, you don’t have anything to lose by speaking with an attorney.
Misconception 4: I Can’t Afford an Attorney
Many personal injury attorneys offer free consultations, so you can speak with an attorney without any obligation. At The Law Office of Fredson Statmore Bitterman, we want to help you get the information you need to make the best decision for you and your family.
