Should we hire an attorney to help settle auto accident?

My son was in an accident 2 1/2 weeks ago. They are supposedly still investigating. However, my insurance has already notified the other driver that they are denying her claim because she failed to yield right of way to my son. Therefore it seems to me that my son is not at fault.

However, my insurance has already notified the other driver that they are denying her claim because she failed to yield right of way to my son. Therefore it seems to me that my son is not at fault. Why is everything still dragging out? He is having to borrow a car for work because a rental was too expensive for us. He is 19 and to rent a car was like $700 a week!!! We didn't want to rent until we were sure who would pay for it. He also had minor injuries, bloody ear, bruised knee, sprained back. He has only been to the dr once and had x-rays once. He has been in pain, but just putting up with it. He is really stressing about all this and I feel like the insurance is totally blowing us off. Should we hire an attorney to get things moving? The other party does have an attorney. Although, I don't know what for, as it was her fault?!
