Can I Represent Myself or Should I Hire an Attorney?
Many clients believe that they will save money by handling their case themselves. One thing that they don't understand is that insurance companies will take advantage of you if you don't know how much your case is worth or how the process works. Insurance companies are looking to pay the smallest amount possible for every injury claim and you could end up settling for far less than you deserve. This means that the insurance companies will actually make a profit off your case. By having an experienced injury lawyer you can better document your monetary losses and work towards the full amount of restitution that you are legally entitled to.
How Long Will My Personal Injury Case Take To Conclude?
This can also vary depending on the severity of your injuries. Your case won't end until you reach a settlement. Some cases are settled quickly and others require going to trial. One thing is for certain and that is that your case should not end until you are fully recovered from your injuries, or as close to recovery as you will ever be. This is because once you settle and accept money from the insurance companies; you won't be able to ever ask for more money for your losses. If your case goes to trial, then it could take anywhere from 1-3 years for the lawsuit to conclude.
