People sometimes call me up and ask a simple question: Why should I hire you to help me with my car accident? After all, it should be easy to resolve. As simple as it sounds, it is an important question.
I have said this a thousand times, and I will say it a thousand more times: most of what lawyers do is not rocket science. That being said, we know what we are doing and you do not.
These are all things you could learn to do - if you had the time and the desire. None of them is that hard. However, they all require a certain amount of expertise. I admit that I cannot fix my home A/C, although I can change my oil and I have. I just don't want to spend the time and energy to become a professional at it. It doesn't require a college degree, but it does require skill.
Similarly, the law requires a certain skill. You could learn everything you need to know to handle your own personal injury case - maybe. But it will cost you time and money. And if you make a mistake, it could cost you thousands.
How do you know the value of your case? What if you need treatment not covered by your health insurance? What do you do if your child is a minor and is injured? These are just some of the questions that could affect your case.
Hire an attorney because we know what we are doing. I will save you time and hassle in learning this. I will work for you to get your matter resolved efficiently.
