Should a seek a lawyer for an trip/fall and minor fractured foot injury?

Or should I settle with the insurance company myself? Is it worth getting a lawyer?

At the very least it would be worth consullting with an attorney about your case. And usually such consultations are free. The fact is that people who have legal representation typically receive substantially higher settlements than those who do not. For the average person who is inexperienced in such negotiations, it can be complex and confusing dealing directly with an insurance company regarding a personal injury claim.


IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Answer(s) provided above are for general information only. The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
