It is not recommended to deal with insurance companies without an attorney because these companies are becoming increasingly hard to deal with as they are not interested in handling cases fairly without a lawsuit. If you intend to hire an attorney for your personal injury case, make sure that you do not authorize the opposing party's insurance companies to look at your case or inspect your records.
Insurance companies will often try to get you to accept their amount of the settlement, which can be far less than you expected. If your case is not clear-cut, be sure to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney before speaking to an insurance adjuster.
Consulting an attorney will save you from making statements which may be damaging to your claim and which you may later regret.
