A personal injury lawyer has seen it all. While personal injuries can impact your day-to-day activities, the process of going through a personal injury claim may not seem worth it to some, even if you are entitled to compensation. You could not be more wrong. Robert J. DeBry & Associates have years of experience litigating, settling, and advising clients on all types of personal injuries. Below is a list noting some of the most common personal injury myths.
- Personal injury cases are too long and are drawn-out: This is false. Often a person may have recently been in an accident or suffered traumatic injuries. The last thing they want to do is wait an extended period for a case to be taken to court. However, in reality, cases often do not even make it to the courtroom. In most instances, cases reach settlements outside the courtroom.
- You only have a minor injury. There is no need for a personal injury lawyer: This is, once again, false. Thankfully your injuries are not severe. However, that does not mean you are not entitled to proper compensation, such as covering your medical expenses. Personal injury lawyers often look out for these cases. Insurance companies tend to underpay, and the amounts are frequently not enough to cover medical costs. With an experienced personal injury lawyer, you have a much greater chance of receiving a proper settlement.
- The party at fault will be forced to pay out-of-pocket: Some people hesitate to make a personal injury claim for many reasons. One is they don’t want to cause financial hardships on the other party. They can be a close friend, family, etc. However, this is not what happens. In most cases, the person’s insurance company is the one who pays for any settlement that is awarded.
