Just like us injury lawyers have misconceptions and stereotypes against us, as discussed in our introductory blog post, so do personal injury lawsuits and the victims that file them. Notice that we say victims, not people, not parties, and not plaintiffs; victims. If you are filing or are considering filing a personal injury lawsuit, you are a victim. You have been injured, wronged, and had the life you were used to taken from you due to the negligence of another.
You may be hesitant to file a claim against this negligent doer because you probably feel you’ve been through enough. You’re not sure if filing a lawsuit is the right thing to do or if you can handle the misperceptions people may have against you after doing so because of the myths that are out there about these types of cases.
The only thing that is true about these common myths is that they are just that, myths. Standing up for yourself in such a public manner is a difficult thing to do. Strangers will be prying into your life, people may hold it against you, but it’s also incredibly brave. You aren’t only standing up for yourself, you’re standing up for all the people who haven’t been injured by this negligence in hopes that it doesn’t happen again and for the people who may have already been victimized but were too scared or intimidated out of doing it for themselves.
Don’t let myths about injury lawsuits intimidate or scare you from seeking justice. If you’ve been injured due to the purposeful or negligent act of another you could receive compensation for your injuries.
