How can we ensure you receive the best settlement of your case? Isn’t it possible for you to do file a personal injury claim without hiring an attorney?
It is absolutely possible to represent yourself and attempt to settle a personal injury claim without an experienced lawyer. It may seem like the easiest way to resolve your personal injury claim, and the insurance adjuster will always encourage you “there’s no reason to hire a lawyer.”
This simply isn’t true. The fact is insurance companies always offer a much lower settlement than you actually deserve. As an experienced personal injury with more than 40 years of proven skill and trial experience I can tell you this simply isn’t true. I worked for the major insurance carriers for the first 20 years of my career. I know their tactics first-hand.

A recent study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) shows that insurance company settlements and payouts were much higher when the injured party hired their own attorney. This study was based upon 6,000 injured people who were injured in a car accident. The study was designed to identify the types of injuries they had to endure, the treatment provided, the cost of that treatment and the settlement the injured party ultimately received. One fact the study made quite clear in the Insurance industry’s own study was those represented by an attorney received 40% more on average in their settlements than those who didn’t have a lawyer.
A separate report by the IRS disclosed a surprising statistic – 85% of all settlements paid by the insurance companies in that study were paid to injury claimants who were represented by attorneys. The results in that study concluded those who were represented by attorneys were paid settlements which were more than three times higher than settlements paid to claimants without a lawyer.
