No. Because you only pay your personal injury attorney if you recover money, there is no risk to starting a claim. If your claim involved an auto accident, you don’t have to worry about your rates going up if you were not at fault. Therefore, it is always in your best interest to hire a lawyer and set up a claim. Your medical expenses need to be paid by someone, right? If you do not want to pursue it later on down the road, you can always withdraw the claim at no penalty.
