Personal Injury Myths

In order to make the right decisions regarding legal action in your own, unique situation, you need to ensure that you are well-informed and not led astray by false information.

MYTH #1: In order to receive financial compensation, my case must go to court.

  • TRUTH: Only a small percentage of all personal injury cases go to trial. The majority of cases are settled outside of court between the plaintiff, defendant, and both lawyers.

MYTH #2: Personal injury cases take years to settle

  • TRUTH: If a case can be settled outside of court, it is likely to be settled within months, typically 8-12.

MYTH #3: I don’t need a personal injury lawyer to settle my case.

  • TRUTH: You can try to handle your case alone, but a personal injury lawyer will help to ensure that you are able to aggressively seek all forms of compensation that you may be due, including both current and reasonably anticipated future needs.
