Pro Se Litigants: Playing Into The Insurance Companies Hands

Comments Off

In the news recently, there have been stories about the increase in Pro Se litigants. The Minnesota courts have been seeing the raise and all of the issues that come with people representing themselves. When asked, the usual answer has been the cost in hiring a lawyer is beyond what people can afford.

Injuryboard member David Mittleman recently addressed the advantages that hiring a personal injury attorney on a contingent fee involves with : Comfort In Contingency. Basically, we only get paid if we are successful.

But further research has indicated that in the age of Deny, Delay and Defend, the insurance companies are in most cases better off if you go it alone in dealing with your personal injury claim. A couple of them have been found to go out of their way to convince people to try to go it alone. They pay less in benefits and they minimize claims overall.

It’s free to talk to a personal injury attorney. Make sure you know your coverages and all of the parts of your claim before you sign anything if you are unrepresented. Unlike many of the other pro se cases, the insurance companies are always going to have their own well paid lawyers to oppose you.
