Some people assume that they can handle a personal injury case on their own. They think they can get a similar settlement and, without having to pay attorney’s fees, will actually have extra money left over. It is certainly a person’s right to handle their own case, but it should be noted that it’s generally not wise. Before trying to handle your own case, speak to a personal injury attorney for a free consultation to learn how they may be able to help.
Some studies have shown that people with attorneys collect more in their settlement than people without an attorney, even when accounting for attorney’s fees. If this sounds incorrect, consider that an attorney knows how to properly evaluate a case and properly value injuries. When people handle a case on their own, they often leave out important damages like future medical and non-economic damages. These can be substantial so it’s important to know just what types of injuries you are facing.
Personal injury lawyers are extremely familiar with injuries and know exactly what to seek when trying to settle a case. They also have access to experts who can prove these injuries and bolster the evidence that proves their worth. This is vital when seeking damages and proving a person’s case. If you handle a case on your own, you may not have the same resources at your disposal to prove your case.
