Have you ever heard the saying "you are just going to have to win this fight alone". Well, that should never be the 'case'. Here are some of the benefits of having a lawyer on your side.
You may have been wrongfully charged, a policeman may have skipped a vital step, or there could have been a mistake. There is room for numerous mistakes and they would know how to catch them and use them to your advantage.
They have done cases like this before, studied them, and know have an understanding of how much injuries are worth. You might have settled for $20,000 when it could have been $50,000. A lawyer is a small price to pay when you are talking in the tens of thousands you almost missed out on.
They would help you win. If you were facing jail time for something, they could reduce the amount of time you serve.
