Do I Have to Hire an Attorney in the State My Accident Happened?
Sometimes we’re asked, do I have to hire an attorney in the state where the accident happened. The answer is no. The expertise that you may need may well depend upon the state in which the lawsuit is filed as opposed to the state where the accident happened and those could be two different states. The expertise that you need may well depend upon whether or not the lawsuit is filed in federal court or state court, and of course, if your lawsuit is part of a class action then an entirely different realm of expertise may be needed. Here at Roberts & Roberts we recommend that you hire the attorney that you feel most comfortable with. If we believe that another attorney needs to be associated to ensure your proper representation then we will associate that attorney and it won’t cost you anymore.
