Can I file a claim without a Lawyer?

You might be able to file a claim without an attorney if the instance is eligible for small courts.

You can file any type of insurance claim in small courts, as long as the amount of your compensation is less than $10,000. In California, a plaintiff might not file a claim that deserves more than $2,500 more than twice a year. A public entity or organization has a limitation of $5,000.

If you anticipate recovering less than $10,000, small courts could be a great option that saves you time and money, and permits you to recover your losses quickly. Most individuals represent themselves in small claims court without lawyers existing.
