Should I use an attorney or handle the case myself?
In making this decision, you may want to consider the following:
ABC news reported that Allstate Insurance Company circulated internal documents that stated that an injured person, represented by an attorney, received, on average, three times as much money as the personal injury victim who did not use an attorney.
Of course, recoveries in individual cases are based on individual facts and circumstances of the case, and are subject to reduction by attorney’s fees and costs.
Additionally, an attorney will find all of the different types of insurance available for your claim, such as bodily injury, uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, PIP insurance, excess insurance, and employer insurance.
