I strongly advise against attempting to handle your personal injury case on your own.
First of all, the insurance companies are represented by adjusters that are trained to pay as little as possible on every claim. This means that, even you are seasoned negotiator, they will not budge when they know you cannot file a lawsuit on your own. Second, despite you knowing the facts of your case, you will not have the legal knowledge to know how to defend claims made by the insurance company (Read Most Common Car Insurance Topics).
A lawyer’s knowledge of the case law applicable to your case is very often the factor that motivates an insurance company to pay the compensation they should in your case. While I am certain that many around may suggest that you do not need a lawyer to assist you on your personal injury case, it is in your best interest to consult with one before you make your final decision. I suggest that you don’t go at it alone.

The Risks of Handling Your Own Workers’ Compensation Case (Work Injury Case)
- You could miss a deadline for filing your claim. A work injury lawyer knows all deadlines that have to be met in order to protect your claim.

A worker’s compensation lawyer can help make sure that you do not have to accept what a negligent employer and their insurance want to give you to go away.
