Is it Worth my While to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

"Will it be worth my while to hire a lawyer? Or will I be pretty much even, after deducting the legal fee, if I  just deal with ICBC myself?"

It's a question that I hear all the time.

And it's a good question to ask before you hire me, or any other lawyer, to handle your ICBC injury claim.

Here's the thing - there's no one size fits all answer.

It really depends on your individual situation. Really!

Ok. Why don't we strip this question down to the bare essentials.

When you hire a lawyer to handle your ICBC injury claim you're purchasing a service (albeit a professional service).

Nothing more.

Nothing less.

So what exactly are you getting for what you're going to pay?

That's the question you really need to consider.

The analysis to apply here is simple.

Will the value you'll be receiving be greater than the cost you'll be paying?

However, the thought process here isn't an easy one to engage in.

When you purchase a commodity such as a tube of toothpaste it's simple.

You can touch it. You can feel it. You can read exactly how much is in the tube. You can, "stick a fork in it."

A service is much more difficult to precisely "pin down".

So, before you hire a lawyer to handle your ICBC injury claim ask this question:

" What exactly will you be doing for me in order to earn your fee?"

Interested in finding out what exactly I do to earn my fee (note; not all lawyers are exactly the same/ provide the exact same services)?
