CAN I SETTLE MY ACCIDENT CASE MYSELF WITHOUT A LAWYER?
You can, but your shouldn’t. Our lawyers are frequently called by people who settled their case, usually a car accident case, too soon and for too little money, and want to know if they can get out of the settlement. An experienced lawyer will help you determine the best time to settle your injury case and what the correct about of compensation is.
In addition, there are issues to consider regarding “subrogation.” Subrogation is the right of medical insurers to get their money bask out of your settlement – sometimes including money for future medical treatment you may need because of the accident. These are complicated issues. Consulting with a lawyer will make sure you are compensated fairly and that your future needs are provided for after an accident injury, and will give you peace of mind.
