1) A skilled personal injury attorney, such as David M. Van Sant, knows personal injury law inside and out and can use this to frame your case in the best possible way to maximize your compensation.

2) A good personal injury lawyer knows insurance law and how it pertains to your case. There is no way you can know the intricacies of insurance law without having confronted insurance companies. Some insurance adjusters will bend or misrepresent the law as it applies to your case in an attempt to convince you that you are not entitled to compensation. Insurance companies may also conveniently forget to tell you certain conditions of your policy that might entitle you to a larger compensation package. The devil is in the details in such matters, and only a good personal injury lawyer can protect you from such practices.

3) A qualified personal injury attorney has a good idea how much compensation you can expect from different types of injuries. Without this information, you will be at the mercy of insurance adjusters and other lawyers who are working to keep your compensation as low as possible.

4) A personal injury lawyer will take your case to court if it is necessary. Insurance adjusters know that if a case ends up in court, the insurance company will probably end up paying pay a lot more that they want to pay. The adjusters also know your case will probably not go to court if you are representing yourself, so they are much more likely to play hardball with you.
