You have been injured. The medical bills are rising, you’re trying to get back on your feet, and now you need to make a claim for compensation. It’s a tough situation to be in, especially as you see the cost of the entire ordeal going up. Do you really have to pay legal fees for representation as well?
You Can Represent Yourself
The short answer is: no, you can choose to represent yourself. You are not required to seek legal counsel when making a claim. The big question is: are you sure you can represent and defend yourself against insurance companies with deep pockets and trained staff? There are many nuances to the law, including things that the average Australian does not know about or deal with on a day to day basis.
The Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer
You should carefully consider your options before making a decision. While a lawyer will come with a fee, there are many benefits to having a professional on your side. They can well offset the cost by getting you more compensation. A lawyer can:
- Provide sound advice that comes from extensive legal knowledge
- Streamline the process by making each step easier
- Offer time-saving services to retrieve records and more for you
- Determine the best way to go to get you maximum compensation
Work on a no win, no fee basis, therefore taking on the risk for you and saving you money upfront in having to collect all the evidence to support your claim.
