The car accident was the other driver’s fault. Can I just settle it myself without an attorney?
It is rarely if ever a good idea to settle your case without at least talking to an attorney. Oftentimes in Florida, insurance companies will contact you directly and try to settle your case for just a fraction of what your case is worth. While you certainly can do that, it is never really a good idea because you’re never going to get full value for your case. In fact, the insurance companies are going to try to settle your case early before you even know what the full value of your case is. You should always consult with a lawyer about the value of your case before even considering settling.
