Top 3 Misnomers When Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer

Top 3 Misnomers When Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer

If you’ve been a victim of a personal injury, then you might be eligible for some kind of compensation. The only way you’ll ever know, though, is if you speak to a personal injury lawyer – who can analyze your case. This can be a confusing process, especially if you have no experience dealing with courts and lawyers. During this process, just remember this: laws have been created to make sure your rights are protected. In order to best enforce these laws, you may want to find a lawyer.

The rest of this article will discuss some of the popular myths surrounding personal injury lawyers, and being represented by a personal injury lawyer.

Myth – Hiring Personal Injury Lawyers Can Be Expensive

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means they only get paid their legal fees, if, and only if, they obtain a settlement or verdict in your case. If you do just a little bit of research, you should be able to find a number of qualified personal injury lawyers. There should be zero fees to you, as a client, until you win your case.  But it is important to note that some personal injury lawyers charge you litigation costs regardless of the outcome of your case.

Myth 2 – Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer Will Cause Me Other Problems

Don’t let your fear of the unknown stop you from hiring a personal injury lawyer. Many people feel that hiring a personal injury lawyer will just cause other problems, and scrutiny into other parts of their life. Just make sure you find a reputable attorney, and you won’t have to deal with any nonsense. Most personal injury lawyers welcome opportunities to exchange meaningful information with you, since it allows them to build a stronger case!

Myth 3 – Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer Will Get Me Fired From My Job

In many cases, it’s common for individuals to have to miss work as a result of their injury. If this is case, while they are considering a lawsuit, they may be also fearing intimidation, and other hurtful tactics, from their employer. You should never be in a situation where you fear reprisal from work, nor should this ever stop you from seeking a personal injury attorney.

If this is one of the things holding back you back from seeking a lawyer, then knowing your rights is important.

Remember – the consultation should always be free. Take this, as a chance to learn as much as you can about what to expect in the near future if you decide to litigate.
