Is it worth your while to hire a personal injury lawyer
It’s difficult to evaluate whether you should hire a personal injury lawyer after you have been hurt in an accident. You might know someone who got a settlement from the insurance company without involving an attorney. What you do not know is whether they could have gotten more money if they had worked with an attorney, even after the attorney fees came out of their settlement.

Risks of Not Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
There are a host of risks that may arise if you handle your personal injury case all by yourself without a lawyer’s help. A lawyer will have the experience and resources necessary to build your case while guiding you to get the best medical treatment possible. It significantly helps to have personal injury experience if you want to handle your personal injury case without an attorney.
Lowball Settlement Offers
The insurance company knows how much a jury in your area awards a certain damage award, but you should not expect them to offer you anything near that amount for your lawsuit. Many people who do not work with a lawyer for their personal injury claim find out later that they are entitled to considerably more money.
The statute of limitations applies.
California law restricts the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit regarding injuries sustained because of another person’s negligence. If you miss the deadline, the courts may prevent you from holding the unintentional perpetrator accountable for your injuries. By consulting a personal injury lawyer from the beginning, you can avoid problems like missing the deadline.
Simply meeting with the insurance company’s claims adjuster will not fulfill your deadline, so you must file a lawsuit if you wish to defend your entitlement to compensation if your case doesn’t settle on time.
Sometimes, when people do not know about the statute of limitations, individuals who are handling their own claims think that they are being treated fairly by the insurance company. In reality, this is merely a tactic used by the insurance company to prolong the case until the deadline passes.
