Video – Should I Try To Deal With My Personal Injury Case By Myself, Or Should I Hire An Attorney?

Ray Hrdlicka – Presenter – Attorneys.Media

“You mentioned earlier that they should consult with a lawyer. But should they hire a lawyer? And I think you answered that a bit; it all depends, of course, on the case, and whether or not they can handle it themselves. Is that the criteria?”

Andrew Dósa – Personal Injury Lawyer – Alameda County, CA

“Well, I hesitate to suggest that the average person would actually know how to handle your claim. Realistically though, if someone only had, like I said, maybe one or two doctor’s appointments, no ER, no ambulance, no X-rays even, but they’re just sore and had a headache for a couple of of days, if your medical bills are two or three hundred dollars, it is not financially attractive for a lawyer.

So, in that situation, the person, assuming they have no responsibility or contribution to their own injuries, can settle something relatively minor with the insurance company and settle the case for the account of him. own. It really becomes more significant when the injuries are long-lasting and more than incidental for the time being.”
