What do you
think you know about personal injury lawsuits? You may be surprised to learn
some “facts” aren’t true. Our mission is to help Louisianans who’ve been
injured through no fault of their own get compensation, and that means making
sure they won’t hesitate to call a lawyer when they need to. So make
sure to get the scoop on these personal injury myths before you settle with
your insurance company.
There’s no personal injury-induced bottleneck in our courts. The truth is that most personal injury claims are settled without ever proceeding to a courtroom.
If you’ve suffered serious injuries and the damages you’ve experienced are significant, you stand a much better chance of getting the compensation you truly deserve by working with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
In many cases, it’s a policyholder’s own insurance company that is denying them the compensation they’re entitled to. You have every right to push back and take legal action against your insurer.
This is one of the most persistent myths about personal injury claims, and it’s a favorite of insurance companies. We can tell you from experience that most people who file personal injury lawsuits only do so because they’ve been denied what they’re legally entitled to—the compensation they deserve.
Many personal injury lawyers, including those at Dudley DeBosier, work on a contingency fee basis. That means your attorney only gets paid if they win you compensation. In many cases, injured people stand to lose more by not hiring a lawyer.
Personal injury law is a specialty. You wouldn’t want your tax attorney or divorce lawyer handling an injury claim. If you’re thinking about filing a personal injury claim, contact an experienced, dedicated personal injury lawyer.
The party named as the defendant in a lawsuit (the person who is technically being sued) is rarely the part who ends up paying the damages of the injured person. The insurance company is very likely the party who owes you compensation, even if they’re not named as a defendant.
For decades, insurance companies have spread myths about personal injury claims. They want to paint people who file injury claims as greedy, when the reality is that insurance companies only care about their profits.
Sadly, many of the myths listed above have become accepted by the public. You need to know the truth about personal injury claims: they’re a much-needed tool used by injured people who have been denied what they’re entitled to by law.
Personal injury claims aren’t about cash grabs. They’re about fairness. At Dudley DeBosier, we’re incredibly proud of the work we do for our clients, and we promise not to stop fighting the good fight.
If you are injured through no fault of your own, don’t believe the myths you’ve heard about personal injury lawsuits. You deserve compensation for your pain and suffering, and we want to help you get it. Contact our team today for a free consultation.
