Overall, no. Based on a study by the Insurance Research Council, plaintiffs with attorneys received 3.5x greater in rewards than those who those that did not. This is because attorneys know the complex laws, what you should be compensated for, and how to create a case that wins or settles in your favor. Many people think they can save money by not hiring a lawyer and representing themselves but time and time again, the data shows that even factoring in fees, having an attorney benefits clients financially in multiples vs not having an attorney.
