Can I settle my personal injury case on my own in Texas without a personal injury attorney?
All U.S. citizens have the legal right to file a lawsuit and represent themselves in court; this is called Attorney Pro Se. Anyone who opts to file a claim via Attorney Pro Se must follow the same rules and regulations required of a licensed attorney.
As personal injury claims are very complicated and require extensive knowledge of the legal system, this is where the difficulty lies. Unless you have extensive knowledge of the legalities of personal injuries, best results in your personal injury case usually come from an attorney who is familiar with the industry based on the numerous cases they have already handled.
Though it is possible to file your case yourself, it is best to let a licensed professional do the work for you. Courts are not authorized to give legal advice; therefore, if you were to make a mistake in filing your claim, the court will simply deny it, giving you no intimation as to what the problem is. This could cost you precious time in filing your suit. An attorney best knows how to file your claim and can recommend the best legal route to improve your chances of success.
