Should I represent myself
Written by our car accident lawyers in Charlottesville
Due to the internet, a fair amount of people choose to represent themselves in court. But as the old saying goes “he who represents himself has a fool for a client.”
There’s good reason for that saying. Regardless of the tips and shallow knowledge you can get from the internet, it can NEVER replace an experienced lawyer who knows the law and the courts inside and out.
For more than three decades our car accident lawyers in Charlottesville have helped individuals with serious injuries in Louisa County, Fluvanna County, Albemarle County, and throughout central Virginia.
For starters, a person who represents herself faces negotiations with an insurance carrier. That in itself requires years of training and experience to ensure you get the correct amount that is rightfully yours, not the amount the insurance company cleverly wants you to settle for.
You will also have to resolve the medical bills that result from a car accident or other serious injury. Then comes the part where you contact experts in various fields to help you prove liability and truly demonstrate the severity of the injuries you suffered.
And this is just the beginning of handling your own case in Louisa County, Fluvanna County, Albemarle County, and throughout central Virginia!!
Since the 1980s, our car accident lawyers in Charlottesville have recovered tens of millions for injured clients hurt every way you can imagine.
We have seen it all and we have successfully battled the insurance companies who almost always lowball the amount of money needed to recover from all the different aspects of a serious accident.
Many studies have shown that a person represented by legal counsel will get significantly more money than if they handled their own case.
Don’t get cheated out of money you need and warrant. Call us to discuss your options at 434-202-8181. Our experienced car accident lawyers can let you know what your options are and how to maximize a recovery.
