Answer: No. The most important reason to get an attorney involved in your case is to help you avoid making common mistakes and ensure that you get the best results possible. Insurance companies use claim representatives who have years of experience and who are tasked with protecting the interest of the insurance company. They do not have your best interest in mind. This is true even if it is your own insurance company. Getting an attorney on your side will help you avoid doing or saying things that could compromise the value of your claim. An attorney who does injury claims exclusively will also know how to help you build as much value in your claim as possible. If handled in this way, there is a very good chance that your claim can be successfully negotiated and resolved without any need to file a lawsuit or go to court.
