Many people have been fed the notion that injury lawsuits are frivolous and unnecessary. This notion comes from big businesses and the media. Many times the media will take the amount awarded by the Jury in a case and only report on that amount. There are countless examples on this, most notably the case of Stella Lieback v. McDonald’s.

It’s common in today’s media to hear the misconception that Americans in general are “sue happy” and are money hungry. This cannot be farther from the truth. In fact a recent study at Harvard’s School of Public Health looked into over 1,000 medical negligence cases that have been closed and found that 97% of these claims were of merit. In the conclusion of the study it said, “Portraits of a malpractice system that is stricken with frivolous litigation are overblown.” (

Do not let the myth that injury lawsuits are frivolous stop you from getting the justice you deserve. Just as your life has been altered after your injury, so should the behaviors or practices of the people who caused it be altered. It is your right to try and get these changes made. Further, it is your right to do so without being ridiculed and made to feel like a fool, as the media did to Stella Lieback with the Hot Coffee case.
