The Insurance Company Has Told Me I Don’t Need a Lawyer. Is That True?

When attempting to settle a personal injury claim, it’s common for victims to be told by the insurance company involved that a lawyer isn’t necessary for the process. Unfortunately, anyone who advises you to avoid seeking legal representation after a personal injury does not have your best interests at heart.


After an accident, an insurance company is responsible for settling a claim for the least amount of money possible. The insurance company’s goal is to make a profit for its shareholders. A profit motive isn’t inherently bad, but it directly conflicts with your goal of obtaining the compensation you need to pay your medical expenses and move forward with your life.


A personal injury lawyer can advocate for your needs throughout the entire settlement process. Your lawyer can assist you in obtaining documentation of your injuries, direct you to medical professionals who can testify as to the accident-related expenses you’ll incur in the future, and negotiate on your behalf to ensure that your settlement is sufficient. With a skilled personal injury lawyer in your corner, you can focus on what’s most important — making sure that you are able to recover to the fullest extent possible.
