Tips to Win a Wrongful Death Claim

After the loss of a loved one, our family had to take action quickly to protect our rights to sue for wrongful death. We tried to handle it alone, but we soon found ourselves looking for professional legal help. There were many twists and turns in the legal process that we had not expected. Even though the company was in the wrong, it was not until we got help that we were able to win. I started this blog to help other families who are going through similar situations. With this guide, hopefully no one else has to go through the experience our family suffered.

Debunking 3 Myths About Personal Injury Lawsuits

Dealing with an injury of any kind can be challenging. However, dealing with an injury caused by someone else can be especially overwhelming. Fortunately, help is available if you have suffered a personal injury. By working with an attorney and understanding the truth behind these common myths, you will be able to determine if a personal injury lawsuit is the right option for you.

Personal Injury Lawyers Chase Ambulances

One common myth people believe is that personal injury lawyers chase ambulances in an attempt to secure clients. This myth is actually quite comical, but believing it could affect your ability to receive compensation for your injury and physical/emotional/financial distress.

Personal injury lawyers do not chase victims to secure clients. In reality, they are contacted by the victims as they realize how devastating their injuries can be to their health, wellness, and lifestyle. The attorneys are legal professionals whose main job is not to secure clients and make money, but to help you/the victim.

Personal Injury Lawsuits are Rare

Another myth that needs to be addressed is that personal injury lawsuits are rare. You may hear about a lawsuit on television or from a friend, but not really understand how common these cases can be.

Personal injury lawsuits involving car accidents, for example, are very common. It can be shocking to learn that 3 million people in the United States alone are injured in an automobile accident each year. Many of these injuries occur because other drivers were driving under the influence or distracted in some manner.

Personal injuries may stem from slipping and falling in a public place, as well. For example, someone may trip over a product in a store or be hit by a forklift in another store, mall, or other public place. These injuries also occur very frequently.

Personal Injury Lawsuits are Quick Ways to Make Money

Finally, you may have heard that a lawsuit is a quick way to make some money. Unfortunately, this is a common myth many lawyers struggle with because filing a claim and winning a lawsuit against another driver, person, or business is not as easy as you may think.

It is important to note that you will need legitimate proof in the form of witnesses, police reports, and even photos or videos to prove negligence. Without this proof, your claim will be invalid, meaning you will not only be advised to not file the lawsuit, but you will not receive compensation for those injuries without the proof.
