Dispelling Myths about Personal Injury Lawsuits

Accidents happen. However, when you or someone you love gets hurt due to someone else’s mistake or negligence, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. However, oftentimes, people are reluctant to file a personal injury lawsuit for a host of reasons. Here, we dispel some of the common myths that keep injured people from seeking or obtaining the damages they deserve.

  1. I can avoid a lawsuit by talking with the insurance company. This is an important point: the insurance company isn’t on your side. Their rep may be polite and even sound sympathetic. However, if they are doing their jobs properly, they are trying to get you to drop the matter or accept a low-ball settlement offer. Insurance companies don’t want to pay damages and, if they have no choice, they want to keep that check as small as possible.
  2. You can’t file a personal injury lawsuit without filing a statement with the insurance company. Absolutely wrong. In fact, at Lombardi & Lombardi we suggest you avoid talking with anyone from the insurance company or the management of the place where you were injured. Contact our personal injury attorneys and let us handle all communication.
  3. All attorneys have the knowledge to deal with a personal injury lawsuit. Again, wrong. There are many lawyers who specialize in a variety of practice areas. Not all have the same experience or level of knowledge when it comes to personal injury law in NJ. At Lombardi & Lombardi, we work with a host of experts who will provide critical information about your accident – allowing us to fight for maximum compensation in your case.
  4. I can’t afford an attorney! This is perhaps one of the most common, yet most misguided myths going. At Lombardi & Lombardi, there are no upfront legal costs and we work on contingency. If we don’t collect damages for you, you don’t pay a dime.

Don’t suffer in silence and don’t leave money on the table. We will help you get compensated for your medical bills, lost pay, pain and suffering and more. And, we’ll help you get justice. Contact the skilled personal injury lawyers at Lombardi & Lombardi today for a free consultation about your accident and injuries.
