Absolutely. Insurance companies are not non-profit organizations. There is a reason they sponsor professional sporting events. I am sure you have seen the celebrities they employ to market their services in TV commercials. They are made of money. They employ teams of “adjustors” and “claims managers” that are specifically tasked with undervaluing and undermining your claim. It is there job to resolve your claim for as little amount of money as possible.
A knowledgeable and experienced attorney will understand your injuries, treatment costs and the various categories of damages your case triggers. Equally important, a knowledgeable and experienced attorney will know the value of your claim. The personal injury attorneys at The Hayes Law Firm have approximately 50 years of experience both prosecuting and defending against personal injury claims. We know all the insurance company tricks and will certainly maximize your recovery.
Of course, you are legally permitted to handle your claim with claims adjustors. You are even permitted to represent yourself in a lawsuit. However, just because you can do something does not mean you should. Handling your personal injury claim without a lawyer is comparable to allowing a non-doctor to perform surgery on you. Just as the old adagegoes “a lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client.”
