I was hurt and went to the doctor only a few times. Do I need an attorney?
If you only have a few doctor visits, you may want to consider small claims court. This will let you resolve your case quickly. You would sue the other party directly. You may want to consult with an attorney first to determine the value of your case.
Not every case requires an attorney. However, the best way to know if you need an attorney, is to talk to one or two and get opinions from them.
