Video Transcript:

One question we get asked all the time is -- do I need an attorney? Research shows that insurance companies usually pay more to settle cases when the person has an attorney than they do when the person is negotiating on their own. That makes sense... But there's another way to look at it. Is this case serious enough that you can afford to make a mistake?

When I bought my house my family was investing a lot of money -- so much money that we couldn't afford to make a mistake. I'm not a real estate lawyer, so I hired a real estate specialist to do the closing to make sure it was done right.

The same principle applies to your case. If you just sprained your little toe and went to the doctor one time for it, you may not want to go to the trouble of hiring a lawyer. But, if the injury is serious enough that you're going to treatment for weeks or months and you're missing work, you probably need a lawyer.

And if you are going to hire a lawyer, we recommend that you do it sooner than later.
