Why should I hire an attorney to represent me?

When your health and finances are at stake, most people understand the importance of seeking professional advice. Consulting with a personal injury attorney is no different, and studies show that people who hire an attorney tend to receive significantly more money than individuals who represent themselves. [FN1] [FN2]

FN1.  A 1999 study funded by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) found that, on average, people who hired an attorney received 3.5 times more money in personal injury cases that individuals who represent themselves.

FN2.  Allstate’s training manual instructs adjusters to discourage individuals from hiring an attorney in personal injury cases because insurance data shows people who are represented by an attorney receive 2-3 times more money than individuals who choose to represent themselves.
