Common Misconceptions About Accident Lawsuits
An experienced Fort Lauderdale injury attorney can help separate fact from fiction
The only thing more dangerous than embarking on a process you know nothing about is embarking on a process you only think you know something about.
There are many myths, rumors and urban legends regarding accident lawsuits and personal injury trials. If you or someone you love is involved in such a case, you owe it to yourself to proceed based on facts, not misconceptions.
The accident litigation attorneys at Fazio DiSalvo & Abers, P.A., have heard many common misconceptions about such trials, and would like to set the record straight.
I do not need to hire an injury attorney
Personal injury law is a complicated area of legal practice. Your case will face deadlines and paperwork filings — and insurance companies and opposing personal injury attorneys, whose job it is to protect the negligent party and pay you as little as possible. Only an experienced attorney, like an accident lawyer from Fazio DiSalvo & Abers, P.A., can help ensure that your case proceeds smoothly, and give you a fair chance of receiving the compensation you deserve.
Accident lawsuits always lead to massive monetary settlements
Not every personal injury case is worth millions, and not every personal injury case has a chance of succeeding. If the damages you are likely to receive in your case are not worth the effort of filing a lawsuit, a reputable injury attorney will tell you so during your initial consultation. Most injury cases, however, are settled for fair amounts of compensation.
I can wait to hire an accident lawyer
Waiting to hire an accident attorney can only hurt a personal injury case. If you delay in hiring your attorney, then:
- The memories of your witnesses fade
- Evidence becomes lost or tainted
- You may miss filing deadlines
- Opposing lawyers will have a simpler time arguing that your injuries did not stem directly from the accident
The sooner you hire a lawyer, the better off you will be.
I can file a second lawsuit to get further compensation if I need it down the road
Once a personal injury lawsuit is over, it is over. You may not file a second lawsuit seeking damages for the same injuries.
