As a non-lawyer, chances are quite good that you simply don’t know about personal injury law. That’s not a slight on you! How are you supposed to be expected to know any of this? One of the major reasons why lawyers are so valuable is because they can cut right through all of the confusing red tape that insurance companies tend to put up to make it hard.
