Absolutely not. The reason is that attorneys are professionals at doing this. We have years and years of experience. We know what matters to an insurance company, we know what doesn’t. Also, we know what helps and hurts your case and how to put its best face forward. In addition if we’re forced to file a lawsuit, we can do that right away if the insurance company’s not being fair. It’s really important to get an experienced attorney on your side to fight for you, otherwise you may be waving your rights or hurting your case in a way that can’t be repaired when you finally get to a lawyer.
