You Might Be Surprised by These Five Often Overlooked Facts About Personal Injury Lawsuits

If you are like the majority of Americans, you have never had to file a personal injury lawsuit before. This may lead you to believe some misconceptions about the process, or to overlook some of the most important facts. Keep reading to learn five of the mand then contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 if you require a free legal consultation with an attorney.

  1. There is No Upfront Cost Required to File a Personal Injury Claim
  2. One of the most common reasons that people decide not to file a personal injury lawsuit is that they assume they cannot afford to do so. The truth is that with a contingency model like the one offered by The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, you do not pay any legal fees until the case is resolved successfully. You do not pay to file the suit and you do not pay as the suit goes on.

    If for some reason the case does not go your way, then you do not owe anything. As you can see, this is a no-risk model that requires no upfront money from you.

  3. You Are Unlikely to Be in a Courtroom or Even See a Judge
  4. You might imagine a lawsuit like you see them in the movies – you would go to court, your attorney would argue with the other attorney, and the judge would bang his gavel. This is rare. Instead, in more than 95% of cases, they are settled before they get to trial. This is why you need an attorney who can negotiate aggressively.

  5. You Are Not Likely to Be Fight with Another Person
  6. We often see that clients who have a valid case are hesitant to file because they do not want to bankrupt a friend or neighbor. However, this is almost never the case. In reality, the lawsuit or claim is generally against an insurance company. You are not likely to be taking on a small business if you slipped and fell, and you are not likely to be suing your neighbor specifically if their dog bites you.

  7. Your Personal Life is Not Likely to Be Made Public Knowledge
  8. Few people want the entire world to know the details of their private lives, and personal injury cases often involve personal details. The good news is that since nearly all of these cases are decided outside of the courtroom, your personal information is unlikely to become public record.

  9. You Can Request a Free Legal Consultation
  10. If you are interested in learning more about how an attorney can help you with your case, you do not have to pay to find out. Instead, simply call The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 for a free consultation. We are standing by today to help you with your case.
