Why would a personal injury lawyer tell you how to settle case on your own?

I may not know you, but I bet that you’re a pretty competent person who can open a bank account, file your own taxes, and handle health insurance claims. If you can do these sorts of things, you can settle case on your own

That is, as long as you’ve only suffered minor damages and injuries. 

Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of serious accident cases that I see on a regular basis that DO need a lawyer to obtain a fair settlement. However, if your case is something I believe you can handle on your own, I’ll tell you just that. Why? 

Don’t Want You to Waste Your Time or Money 

Minor accident cases aren’t going to settle for more than a few thousand dollars, if they require compensation at all. Remember that when you hire a lawyer, you have to pay them out of your settlement once your case is resolved. 

I don’t think you should be spending your settlement on lawyer fees, you’re going to want that money to pay for your crutches or the few days you miss from work. 

Don’t believe those lawyer advertisements that say they take every accident case no matter what. While it’s true they’ll take your case, they’ll also take your money for services you could handle on your own. They may even charge you for extras like document handling fees! 

This is why I wrote my book, to give clients like you the power to settle case on your own. This way you don’t lose out on keeping your full settlement money, and I can devote my time to the accident cases that really need a lawyer to reach a fair settlement. 

Why hire a lawyer to settle your accident case when you don’t need one? 

It may sound crazy, but I want you to succeed in settling your accident case WITHOUT a lawyer. Why? As much as I’d love to help every client that comes into my office, I just don’t have that kind of time.
