Personal injury attorneys often get a bad reputation, and sometimes, rightfully so. Billboards on the highway asking if you were injured in an accident in bad font, with often misleading claims of obtaining millions of dollars in settlements, give people a negative impression of personal injury lawyers. On top of that, many attorneys who “dabble” in personal injury cases fail to properly advise clients and fail to refer them to medical professionals who can treat them properly, because their client’s injuries are only secondary to their goal of obtaining a quick cash settlement. Further, some attorneys will never even touch a client’s personal injury case but instead, will assign a “case manager,” who is not an attorney, to work the case from initial claim to settlement. This is unfortunate and should not be the case.
The truth is that a “good” personal injury lawyer has one goal: to hold people accountable. If you were injured in an accident, then you deserve to be treated fairly and the negligent party deserves to be held to a higher standard of care so that what happened to you does not happen again to anyone else, or at least happens less frequently. Auto accidents, airline accidents, slip and fall accidents, dog bite accidents, pedestrian accidents, and other types of accidents can completely change your life, and the person or entity responsible for it should be held accountable. Unfortunately, in this day and age, the only way to do that is to hit them where it hurts, their financial resources.
The financial award in a personal injury legal case can help you pay for medical bills and compensate you for the burden that comes from loss of income, stress, anxiety, inconvenience, pain, suffering, and psychological trauma that you experienced from your physical injuries. Why should you have to pay one cent out of your pocket or compromise your long-term health for someone else’s negligence?
Further still, when you hire a lawyer, don’t you deserve to have a lawyer that actually works on your case, instead of a “case manager” or legal assistant? Don’t you deserve a lawyer that will take your calls instead of dodging them? Don’t you deserve to get the proper medical care for your injuries so that you can recover faster, and move on with your life?
