Ever seen a lawyer ad like that said:
If you’ve been in an accident, call me. Quick! Right now! I can get you the money you deserve. It costs you nothing. I care about you!
Pretty silly, isn't it? That's not the way it works yet that's what I see in some lawyer ads. Doesn't give you a whole lot of useful information, does it? Check out most of the TV ads. That's the message they are delivering.
If you've been in an accident or been hurt by a medical practitioner, you might not need a lawyer, but you should get the books I have written for consumers to read BEFORE talking to an insurance claims adjuster or hiring an attorney. The books are free for Virginia resident.
