You can retain an attorney. However, if you were at fault in the accident, it is unlikely an attorney will take the case. If the case is property damage only, it is also unlikely that an attorney will take the case.

Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved.
