FAQ: How do I settle a personal injury claim without an attorney?

You can always settle your personal injury claim without an attorney. The question is, Should you? Insurance companies frequently try and take advantage of individuals immediately following a collision. Insurance companies offer low settlements in the hopes that the “quick cash” will entice someone into settling without knowing their options. Attorneys have a wealth of experience in dealing with insurance companies and can fully explain your options as well as strategies with you before settling a claim. An attorney can also make sure you do not settle too early, and that all of your damages are accounted for in a settlement before the case is closed. Having an attorney is the easiest way to ensure you are protected in a settlement.
