Should I Use a Lawyer?

Generally speaking, if you are injured in a car accident caused through the fault of another person then it will almost certainly be worthwhile pursuing a claim for injury compensation against the CTP insurer of the vehicle at fault.

You are legally entitled to bring a claim for injury compensation against a CTP insurer without legal representation. But unless your likely award of damages was exceptionally nominal, it will be worthwhile engaging a lawyer to represent you. The insurers are very experienced litigators in injury compensation claims and there would be a real imbalance of power/knowledge which could be highly detrimental if you were to pursue the claim without representation.
