Can I Represent Myself in an Injury Case?

What to Know If You Are Injured in a Car Accident in NYC

If you are injured in a car accident in New York City, you may wonder whether you can represent yourself in an injury claim. While it is not required by law to retain an attorney to represent you, it is generally in your best interest. An insurance adjuster may try to deny your claim or downplay your injuries. An attorney can ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

We give FREE legal advice, even if your case was rejected by another attorney. Contact our office today at (718) 233-3913 to schedule a free consultation.

Why You Should Hire an Attorney After a Car Accident

If you are injured in a car accident, you need to consult with an attorney. While legally you can represent yourself, you may end up settling for less than your case is worth. Unrepresented injury victims often accept lowball offers because they do not realize their case is worth more. An attorney can ensure that you receive the maximum compensation allowed under state law.

Reasons to hire an attorney after an accident:

  • Maximized damages - A car accident lawyer can help maximize your damages. They will ensure that you receive compensation for all of your accident-related losses including your future medical bills if you are seriously injured.
  • Insurance negotiations - Insurance companies often try to pressure injury victims into settling their cases as quickly as possible. They may try to say that your injuries are not serious or deny your claim altogether. An attorney will help negotiate with the insurance company to get the largest possible settlement.
  • Handling litigation - If a fair and full settlement cannot be reached with the insurance company, an attorney can file a lawsuit to obtain the recovery you deserve.
  • Working with experts - Experts often prove critical in accident and injury cases. An experienced attorney will work with a team of experts to prove the extent of your injuries.

There are many reasons to hire an attorney after an accident, but you need to act fast. You only have a limited amount of time to file a claim for damages. Failure to file a claim within the statutory time limits may result in your case being dismissed.
