Do I Need an Attorney to Recover Compensation?
There is no legal requirement that TBI victims retain an attorney, and it is possible to represent yourself in negotiations with an insurance company or even in court. It is important to understand, however, that doing so will almost always put you at a disadvantage and may result in you recovering less than you should or even recovering nothing at all. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, and they know how to minimize the amount they pay out on claims. So, it is always advisable to retain an attorney after a TBI-causing accident.
