There are two questions here:
- Do I need an attorney?
- Should I try and handle my personal injury case on my own?
All injury cases are different. All insurance companies are different, yet, all have the same two goals in a personal injury case:
- Pay you nothing; or
- Pay you as little as possible.
Every case is different, every insurance company adjuster is different and every insurance company is different. But they all have these same two goals.
The main things to consider are:
Do you know what information to provide to the adjuster? Do you know what you should not give them?
Do you know what to say to the adjuster? Do you know what you should never say?
It does not take much. A wrong word, providing access to your medical file or too much information can kill your case.
Please understand that. No matter how valid or good your case might be, too much/wrong information can kill your case.
