Hiring an attorney shows you are serious. Showing you are serious is the only way you will be treated fairly.
Most cases do not go to trial, even if filed in court. Having said that, you must be prepared to go to trial if necessary, and you must show it.
The stark reality is that the insurance industry looks at your claim as a cost item in their business ledger. Only if they fear your personal injury claim will they make a fair and reasonable offer. They only fear your personal injury claim if you show you are ready to go to court if you must.
The surest and fastest path to a full and fair out of court settlement is to show you are ready to go all the way if you have to. Showing you are willing to litigate the case is the best way, sometimes the only way, to assure a fair and just result without having to go to trial. And that is the reason you hire a lawyer.
