On one of my Joe Knows radio interviews this morning I was asked this question, and this actually comes up a lot. “Do I really need to get a lawyer? Can’t I just do this myself?”
My response is always, “Yes of course you can try it on your own. Just be prepared to maybe make things worse than they are already…”
What do I mean?
Well think of it this way: I know myself, I don’t do my own plumbing, I don’t do my own electrical work. That’s because when I’ve tried it in the past, it’s never worked out for me. Sometimes I made the situation worse. The same thing is true here. You don’t want to make things worse, you want to make things better for you and your family. If you’re seriously injured, you don’t want to jeopardize the award you may be eligible for. And of course, the Team here at Stanley Law is ALWAYS striving to get you the MAXIMUM AWARD.
The Big Insurance Companies
When you’re going up against the big insurance companies they do NOT have your best interests at heart, they have their OWN interests at heart. Any advice you seek from any personal injury attorney is FREE and a personal injury lawyer by law is paid only on contingency – meaning we only get paid if YOU get paid in your case. So the best advice? Get advice, it’s free, and then once you have it you can make a decision from there how you want to move forward.
You can begin by emailing me directly at Joe@StanleyLawOffices.com or call our offices at 1-800-608-3333. We can also travel to you and have offices in Rochester, Binghamton, Watertown, and Montrose, PA.
