We strongly recommend that you do not file a bicycle accident claim without an attorney.
Bicycle accident cases can be complex and may include pursuing compensation from multiple parties, calculating damages for life-long injuries, and gathering a large amount of evidence to build a strong claim. A bicycle accident attorney can handle all of these tasks while you focus on healing.
Should I File a Bicycle Accident Claim Without a Lawyer?
Many clients think they can save themselves money by filing a claim without legal help. The truth is, they often cost themselves both time and money.
It may not be in your best interest to file a bicycle accident claim without the assistance of a lawyer. The insurance companies are in the business of making a profit and do not have your best interests in mind.
A bicycle accident lawyer, on the other hand, understands the tactics insurance companies often employ to save themselves money. They know how to negotiate and how to estimate the full amount of your losses. For example, our firm can calculate the compensation you deserve for the pain and suffering you sustained, including the inability to do the activities you love after your injuries.
Also, hiring a dedicated personal injury lawyer allows you to focus on your health.
Why You Should Not Hire a Discounted Personal Injury Law Firm
Some firms may offer to represent you for a discounted rate, often 25 percent of your final settlement versus the standard 33 1/3 percent or higher rate. This sounds like a good deal, but may result in lower take home in the end.
For example, say you are looking to purchase a bicycle and two stores carry the exact same model, but one charges eight percent more. In this situation, it makes sense to make your purchase from the cheaper store. However, this example assumes you are taking home the exact same product.
The same cannot be said for bicycle accident attorneys. While saving money on legal fees may seem like a good idea, many clients may recover more compensation overall, even after the additional legal fees are deducted, with a law firm that is dedicated to working exclusively with personal injury cases.
You may actually lose money in the end by working with a discount law firm who does not understand the ins and outs of personal injury law.
