Won’t I recover the same amount without an attorney and not have the legal fees to worry about?
No, not likely, in my opinion and experience. The results of a study from the Insurance Research Council suggest that the decision to hire an attorney pays significant dividends for accident victims pursuing an auto insurance claim. The Insurance Research Council also found that insurance payouts are, on average, 3.5 times higher for clients who have hired an attorney than for those without an attorney. That study could mean, for example, instead of a recovery of $7,500.00, your recovery could be $26,250.00 with an attorney.
