Benefits of Securing Legal Representation
Though you have a right to represent yourself in a civil lawsuit, it is generally inadvisable. Some injured parties choose to proceed without representation. They believe it will save them money, but the reality is that it will likely cost them significantly in the long run due to the potential for mishandling of the case. Hiring an attorney to provide counsel and representation grants you the following benefits:
- Ensuring that you are properly advised regarding the apparent viability of your case
- Preventing you from missing important deadlines or mishandling procedural details
- Helping to ensure that you pursue the full scope of damages that you may be doing
- The ability to negotiate a settlement quickly and before the matter reaches court, which can alleviate stress and get you the money you need sooner rather than later
