Personal injury lawyers of the Miller Law Group in Raleigh, NC will give you honest advice on whether you should hire a car accident lawyer or represent yourself.

The overriding question is whether a personal injury lawyer will bring sufficient value to justify the legal fee. If not, you may net more money if you represent yourself. It’s never a good idea to represent yourself just to avoid a legal fee, because in some cases, a legal fee is justified.  There is an old proverb in the legal community that says, “The lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client.”

That being say, in some cases it just doesn’t make financial sense to incur a legal fee. So, here are 5 considerations with hiring a personal injury attorney:

  1. Will the lawyer’s value justify the legal fee?
  2. Will the lawyer agree not to take more than the client?
  3. Does the lawyer take cases to trial before a jury?
  4. What do you (lawyer) do to prepare my case?
  5. Will I be dealing with you or a paralegal?

Of course, there are many additional considerations, but honesty is paramount in the attorney-client relationship.
