Legally reviewed by:Erik Abrahamson, J.D. February 19, 2015
You’ve been in a bad auto accident, and times are tough. The medical bills are piling up, you’ve been out of work for weeks or months, and you’re wondering how you’re going to make ends meet.
You know that filing a legal claim is your best bet for the compensation you need to recover, and you are considering pursuing a claim on your own. After all, with all your financial problems, you can’t afford to hire an attorney, can you?
Actually, a better question to ask may be “Can you afford not to hire an attorney?” Below are just a few of the negative outcomes of failing to secure a skilled auto accident lawyer:
You may lose time.
A lawyers who knows the ins and outs of courtrooms, legal rules, government officials, and insurance company policies can save you a lot of time. They understand how to cut through the jargon and complex bureaucratic mazes to fight for your rights in an efficient manner.
You may lose your chance for compensation.
If the world were a perfect place, an accident victim would be treated the same way as a lawyer when it came to the world of insurance claims and courtrooms. But unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world.
The truth of the matter is that insurance companies and defense attorneys are much more likely to take you seriously with a lawyer by your side. If fact, studies show that victims who hire attorneys consistently walk away with more compensation than those who don’t.
No matter how deserving you are or how much evidence there is of the other party’s liability, there is a good chance that you may lose your case if you don’t know how to pursue a personal injury claim effectively.
If you do not hire an attorney, you may forfeit any chance you had at receiving the compensation you need for recovery and for putting your life back together.
