Myths about personal injury lawsuits

There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to lawsuits concerning personal injury. Personal injury is a lawsuit that is quite common, there are a lot of ways one can get hurt by someone else’s negligence, intentionally by someone else or accidentally. Since there are a lot of cases, people started to come up with things that aren’t always true and just like that, there turned out to be quite a lot of myths concerning personal injury lawsuits. In this article we will go over a few of them, just to clear things up and inform people how it actually is. If you wish you may read more here.
So, myth number one – A lawyer needs to be paid upfront in order to take your case.

This is absolutely not true. Most lawyers will not ask for money before they take your case, they won’t ask for money during the case and the only way a lawyer can profit from your case is if you win.

Myth number two – A lawyer can always tell you how much money you will receive.
Although there is some truth to it, every case is different. For the same injury you can receive different amounts of money, that is because every injury is different. Lawyers can tell you the general idea of how much money approximately you can get for this particular case, but they can’t tell you the exact amount. The reason for this is that not everybody gets affected the same way. It’s made so that the court of the law actually gets to know you, your needs, your conditions and to evaluate how much you will lose because of said injury. For example if you hurt your leg but you work in an office, sitting whole day, you might not miss work, but if your work requires you to stand whole day, you won’t be able to, and thus lose money. So these two cases clearly aren’t the same, but the injury is.
