Do I Need a Lawyer for an Insurance Claim?

After a car accident, some people may try to negotiate with an insurance company on their own. While this may be sufficient in some cases, when a person is seriously injured, he or she should definitely hire a qualified lawyer for an insurance claim. In this video, attorney Kathy McArthur explains that even after paying attorney fees, a person will obtain more money from an insurance claim with a lawyer at their side.

The problem with that is, that they won’t pay them, they’ll pay them a fraction of what their injury is worth. They will make far more money if and only if they go to an attorney, who’s well-versed in handling those types of cases. So, one of the things that I see a lot of is people don’t understand that all lawyers aren’t the same. And there are so many advertising lawyers now, that advertise one call that’s all. Or I can get you more money, or I’m a trial lawyer, and it’s just not true. They end up hiring a lawyer who is not a specialist, who doesn’t do this work regularly, and they just you know. Yes, we can settle the cases too. And if you’re going to get a lawyer like that, you should handle it yourself. If you’re not going to get a specialist, because if you get a specialist, you know I tell people they’re going to get five to ten times more money themselves after the fees and costs are paid.
