I’m often asked whether you can handle your accident case by yourself without hiring an attorney and the simple answer is yes. But keep this in mind, when you’re dealing with an insurance company, particularly an adjuster for the other side, the part that they caused your accident, their job is to save as much money for that insurance company is as possibly can and to settle your case for as little as they can.

Statistics have proven that if you actually do hire an attorney in an accident case, you’re going to make a bigger recovery, get a larger settlement amount. Even when you factor in the fee or the cost that the attorney would charge you, you will still end up netting more money than if you try to do it on your own.
