Video Transcription:
Have you been injured in a car accident and you're sitting at home wondering if you can handle this on your own without a lawyer. In the next minute I'm going to talk to you about a resource that will actually tell you what to do.

It's pretty common for people after they've been in an accident to go through that the thought process of is it something I can do on my own, do I really need to hire a lawyer. Probably at some point, someone from the insurance company is going to call and have that conversation with you as well. They pretty regularly suggest that you don't need to do it and  you can save yourself some money and we're going to take care of you.

From all those conversations we can maybe better help you decide. We have laid out the steps we use in our office to settle a car accident case from 1 to 29. You can download this free report, 29 Sure-Fire Tips to Settling Your Car Accident Case on Your Own. We encourage you to download it and look at it and see if it's something you feel comfortable doing.

It isn't all that easy and it would be helpful if you quite frankly did it everyday but understanding for instance if you have health insurance, do you have to repay them and how much. Is Medicare involved and if so what happens if you don't pay the Medicare lien back and what happens if you don't take care of their future entitlements to benefits. What are juries returning in terms of verdicts in your area and how do you get a sworn declaration sheet of the insurance coverage to make sure all the insurance is available to you, and on and on, and on.

Look at it and determine if you feel comfortable doing it and then decide if it's something you want to undertake on your own.
