Can I handle my personal injury case on my own?

Yes, you’re allowed to handle your personal injury case on your own but it’s not recommended. One party may blame the other, they may lie about what happened or the insurance company may refuse to pay for damages. It’s rare that things go as smoothly as planned. However, a Denver personal injury attorney can determine your rights and ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

When you represent yourself, insurance companies are more likely to take advantage of you. They assume that you don’t know what rights you are entitled, so they may give you a lowball offer or refuse to settle with you altogether.

In addition, it’s a good idea to hire a lawyer for any personal injury case involving:

  • medical malpractice;
  • toxic exposure;
  • disability; and
  • severe injuries.

This is because these types of cases are generally more complex. They can be harder to prove negligence of another party, making it almost impossible to claim damages without the help of a lawyer.

In addition, you will likely be able to claim a higher amount of damages from these types of claims and having a Denver personal injury attorney can make a huge difference in the amount of compensation you can receive.
