Personal Injury Attorney Myths: San Angelo, TX

Personal injury attorneys exist to support individuals who have suffered harm as a result of the carelessness or negligence of another. Unfortunately, there are some myths that often prevent people from reaching out to one of these professionals. Here are a few of those myths, and the truth behind them, so you can be encouraged to seek the assistance of a San Angelo personal injury attorney for your situation.

A San Angelo personal injury attorney will go after individuals who cannot afford settlement payments.

One fear victims in personal injury claims often have is that their case will be pursued against individuals who themselves cannot afford to pay any settlements that are awarded. They may feel guilty about putting others in a difficult financial situation, or worry that a settlement will not be promptly paid.

The reality, however, is that most often San Angelo personal injury attorneys pursue cases against people’s insurance companies or against organizations that are well able, and responsible, for paying claims. Here at the Law Offices of David M. White, we can even pursue rightful payment from victims’ own insurance companies that are refusing to give them the compensation they deserve.

Personal injury attorneys often file frivolous claims.

At times, personal injury claims get a bad reputation as being frivolous or greedy pursuits of undeserved settlements. Individuals may feel guilty pursuing a personal injury claim as a result of this perception, or they may feel embarrassed to ask for the settlement they deserve.

The reality, however, is that the vast majority of personal injury claims are justified pursuits of settlements that victims need to recover from the harm they experienced at the hands of others. Your San Angelo personal injury attorney can actually ensure that you pursue a fair claim by evaluating all aspects of your case, including factors such as pain and suffering and lost wages. The amount may be higher than you expect, but it will be the amount you deserve for the suffering you endured as a result of the incident.

Personal injury claims are easy to settle.

On the other side of the personal injury spectrum are individuals who mistakenly believe that they do not need a personal injury attorney because their claim is cut and dried. In fact, they may believe that simply the act of filing a claim is enough to get them compensation.

However, there are many times that insurance companies and organizations will try to lowball a settlement, or fight a claim outright, even when the compensation is deserved. At times like these, a Texas personal injury attorney is necessary to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve. This professional can pursue evidence, build a case, go to court, and otherwise fight on your behalf with the knowledge and skill that is needed to win you a favorable outcome.

If you have suffered injury, or the loss of a loved one, because of the carelessness or negligence of another in the San Angelo area, do not hesitate to reach out to a San Angelo personal injury attorney. Here at the Law Offices of David M. White, we provide free consultation, and years of experience, to ensure that your case receives the attention it deserves.
