There are many misconceptions about lawsuits. We often hear people say, “Well, you know, I’m not the suing type.. I don’t want to be that person.. I don’t sue people.” But what people should understand is that in injury cases, your initial act is not to sue anyone. We do what we’re able to reach a fair resolution without having to go to trial. When people hire attorneys for personal injury claims, what they’re really doing is hiring an advocate to deal with the insurance company for them. They’re just pursuing the insurance coverage that the other driver or property owner pays to have.
Hiring an attorney can be very beneficial if you want to pursue a claim. Personal injury attorneys deal with insurance companies on a daily basis and know exactly what to ask, what to send, and how to handle the claim. Adjusters deal with claims everyday and know that the average person doesn’t have the experience to know what they are entitled too. Having a personal injury attorney to advocate for you can be very helpful and reduce the amount of stress from the accident or injury. For personal injury attorneys, filing a lawsuit occurs when it’s the best or only option. Most times, we try reaching resolution with the insurance companies before litigating the case.
