The car accident was the other driver’s fault. Can I just settle it myself without an attorney?
If you were in a car accident and it was the other driver’s fault, sure, you can settle it without an attorney. I wouldn’t recommend it though. There are issues that you don’t know that are out there that can affect you negatively. For instance, if you have underinsured motorist coverage and you don’t get the permission from your insurance company to settle that claim, you’ve just voided your coverage, so I wouldn’t recommend you settle with any insurance company without at least speaking to a qualified personal injury attorney.
