A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Get You Much More for Your Injury Case Than Going Alone
You never thought it would happen to you, but now you are here, you’ve got a personal injury case. Maybe it was a car accident, a work-related accident, or other incidents; regardless of what happened, you now are dealing with a mess of issues, including dealing with the insurance company. In all the mess and stress, it’s tempting to just take that initial insurance offer, but why settle for less?
Maybe you’re bolder and know that you could get more. You think you could be saving money if you do it yourself rather than hiring a lawyer. This could be true, but how can you know for sure?
While cost is on a case by case basis, there is a way to assess what the best path is to take.
You’re a DIYer, you got this, right?
The truth is insurance companies will not take you seriously if you represent yourself. Does that mean you give up and hire a lawyer? Not necessarily. It really depends on what your case is actually worth.
If you have a small case, it may be wiser to go it alone. The cost of the retainer may negate the end result. A consultation will help you understand what your options are and what the best choice for your case may be.
Insurance companies are just that, companies. Usually, their goal is to keep as much money as possible in the company. Justice is important, it’s just not the top priority to them. Your insurance company has been around the block a few times and in and out of the courtroom too. They have a good idea of what they can and can’t get away with. If you don’t have a partner on your side that also knows the ins and outs, the insurance company has now gotten a leg up on you. They can offer you what may seem like a great deal, but in reality, it’s a cop out. With an experienced lawyer on your side, they know if the deal is good or not.
Another reason an insurance company is more likely to settle outside the court with a lawyer is they know the lawyer means business. If the lawyer says they are moving for litigation, the company knows that is going to happen.
