What Are The Myths About Lawsuits?

I originally called this blog “The secrets about lawsuits” – then I decided that “myths” was a better word. Most people think that a “secret” is true, and a “myth” is false.

If you know me, you know I am not a big believer in secrets, at least not in the sense that you can intentionally keep important information away from someone who wants to know it. When I married my wife – who had two children – I soon realized that I had few secrets that were both keepable and worth keeping.

But a myth is just something that people can believe. It can be true, false or true and false.

People believe lots of things about lawsuits that are either wrong, or only partly right. Here is a list of things people believe – some are true, some are false, and some are true and false -based on their questions to me:

1) “You should cooperate with the insurance adjuster because he is trying to help you.”

2) “You will net more money by settling your lawsuit without using a lawyer.”

3) “There is a lawsuit crisis in America. Juries are ready to award really big bucks to accident victims.”

4) “The Insurance Company Appears In Court.”

5) “The insurance company won’t pay big dollars without a big crash”

6) “You won’t have to file suit; the insurance company will settle the case because they are afraid of a lawsuit.”

7) “You can settle your lawsuit before you are done treating, and get a lot of money right away.”

8) “A chiropractor will help your case.”

9) “Insurance Lawyers Are Well Paid.”

10) “Punitive damage awards can make a huge difference in the amount the jury awards.”

In my next 10 blogs, I am going to talk about these things people believe. If you are like most injured people, you probably have heard of at least one or two of them. This is your chance to find out.

But if you have a question about any of these things, or about anything else with your personal injury lawsuit, you don’t have to read the blog – you can call me, a Cincinnati Injury Attorney, direct! There is no obligation, and no charge for talking to me about your question.

I’d love to talk with you about this. Other lawyers refer their clients to me. And if you decide you‘d rather hire someone else, that’s OK. My phone is 513-621-4775.

Because all situations are different, and because there may be other facts pertaining to your case that I don’t know about, you should not rely on this answer for legal advice. I am not your attorney, and no lawyer client relationship has been formed. All discussions are limited to Ohio law unless otherwise indicated. And past performance cannot be used to predict future results.
