I am asked this question a lot. So let me answer it: Yes.
But that is not really the right question to ask. The right question is, should you try to settle your own case without a lawyer?
I am not a plumber. I have no education or experience in fixing pipes or plumbing fixtures. I wouldn't even try because I would be guessing. And, if I turn that wrench too far, THEN I really need a plumber and the repair will likely be far more expensive.
In the law, in personal injury cases, we have to deal with insurance company personnel. Have you any experience in going this? What do you tell them? What should you not say? Too much information and you could seriously damage your case. Then find a lawyer? At that point, it may be too late.
Once you have said things you should not, there is no taking it back. The repair does not get more expensive (like a sink), it becomes impossible. Say too much, or the wrong thing and even the best lawyer cannot help your case.
Can you handle your own? Again, yes. Should you?
Before you do, find an experienced trial lawyer. Talk about your case, an initial consultation is usually free. Get the facts, get educated. Then decide.
