Car accident myths and facts
After a car or truck accident, it’s normal to feel disoriented, overwhelmed and unsure of where to turn. There’s a lot of misinformation out there that can make a difficult situation worse.
Myth: I don’t need a lawyer – I can just settle through the insurance company.
Fact: That’s very risky. Accepting an offer without legal consultation can be very costly. Insurance Research Council data show that an accident victim represented by a lawyer receives 3 ½ times more than someone who settles with the insurance company on their own.

Myth: I can’t afford a personal injury attorney.
Fact: Actually, the reverse is true. Not having an attorney on your side to stand up for your rights and fight for what you deserve can mean forfeiting the compensation you’re entitled to. An attorney should evaluate your case at no cost.
Myth: I can’t file a personal injury lawsuit if I am partially at fault in an accident.
Fact: That’s not always true. There are circumstances where you can be partially liable and still file a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages. That’s why it is so important to consult an attorney to determine the full extent of your rights. Determining fault is tricky and complex, so enlist the help of someone who knows the laws and can advocate for you.
Myth: A personal injury case seeks compensation only for medical bills.
Fact: Not necessarily.You may be entitled to compensation not only for past and future medical bills, but also for past and future lost wages, hired help at home, stress, inconvenience and other accident-related expenses like repairing or replacing your vehicle.
