If you are considering filing a personal injury case you may question the need to hire a lawyer.  You may feel the situation if very clear, you suffered an injury the other person is obviously at fault and now you want to claim damages.  It is possible to represent yourself but the process is never simple and may result in a lower award or possibly even no reward for your injury compensation.  There are several factors you need to consider when navigating your own personal injury case.  Insurance companies will work quickly to settle with very low estimation of what you have been through or what you have lost.  They may toss out a figure that although it sounds good, may be seriously undervalued in the event that you develop problems in your future from the accident or injury.  In the event you are unable to reach a reasonable settlement the need to go to court becomes a possibility.  There are many situations that could evolve that make the process much more difficult if a trial comes into play.
