Is it worth getting a lawyer for a minor car accident? Yes.

I once represented a very old lady who lived locally here in the Boca Raton area, who was getting into the back of a car to go play mahjong with a bunch of her girlfriends who are all in their 90s. When she was getting in the back of the car, the woman driving started to pull away, just briefly, enough to drag her ankle. She had a slight sprained ankle and was hesitant to hire a lawyer.

About six months after her sprained ankle, she developed a permanent nerve condition that required a drug to treat it that costs almost $5,000 a month.

That case settled for a substantial amount of money for someone who really thought it was such a minor accident she shouldn’t get a lawyer.
