Can I Handle A Personal Injury Claim On My Own?

If you were seriously injured in a crash due to someone else's negligence, you may be considering filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Seeking compensatory and punitive damages can ensure you are recovering maximum compensation to cover all of your financial needs. You might be wondering, however, do I need a lawyer or can I handle the claim on my own?

At Green & Delan, LLC, we hear people in Alpharetta & Peachtree Corners, GA, and elsewhere in Fulton County and the north Atlanta metro ask this question far too often. While you might be confident in your ability to organize a personal injury claim against a negligent driver, there is simply no substitute for the skill and experience of a personal injury attorney who knows the process — and what's at stake — better than you do.

What's At Stake?

What's At Stake?

People often make the mistake of thinking they can handle a personal injury claim on their own because they consider themselves well organized or good at arguing their point, but filing a successful claim takes more than that. You need experience that only comes from handling hundreds of cases like attorney Jim Green from Green & Delan, LLC, has.

Without a highly experienced lawyer's knowledge, you could:

  • Misunderstand the wording of an insurance policy
  • Misunderstand your protections under Georgia personal injury laws
  • Fail to take the rights steps after a crash
  • Fail to secure reports from your physician that connect your injuries to the accident
  • Fail to request compensation that covers future medical expenses, long-term care or lost wages due to temporary or permanent disability
  • Fail to recognize a lowball offer that does not properly address your full financial needs
  • Fail to file your claim on time
  • Run into subrogation issues when your insurer asks for money back following a settlement
