Q: Can I handle my accident case and settlement without the help of a lawyer?
Yes you can. There is no law that says you can't. But settlements are all about information. To get a good settlement, you must gather the right information and use it to your advantage at the right time during negotiations. That's what a lawyer does best. Before you handle your settlement yourself, you need to know what information to use and when. Lawyers that specialize in accident cases deal with injuries and insurance companies everyday.
