Why You Do NOT Need an Attorney for Most Cases

SCC believes that for most types of injury cases the injured party would be far better served by using a do-it-yourself or self-help approach. In smaller claims, where the injuries are NOT substantial and/or permanent or when there are NO complex issues related to liability and/or damages and the injured party believes that he or she is capable of negotiating a satisfactory settlement, the injured party will surely be better served by this do-it-yourself approach for several reasons which relate to the realities of the modern practice of law.

  • First, because smaller injury cases by their very nature are not very profitable for attorneys, attorneys tend to give them a lower priority than the bigger cases. Thus, you can expect that the attorney is going to be working on a number of high priority cases at the same time he is "working on" your case. How much attention do you think he will give to he prosecution of your case when his days are filled with much higher priority work?
  • Second, no attorney will ever care more about your case, know more facts in your case, or give it a higher priority than you will. This is particularly true with most types of injury claims, because they just do not warrant the attorney's attention. He will have his staff help in most such claims, but the staff will change, or the matter will be handed off to a junior secretary or a temporary employee.
