4 Reasons People Don’t Call Personal Injury Attorneys


Unfortunately, many people who suffer catastrophic injuries in accidents caused by other people’s negligence end up suffering too much because they failed to contact a personal injury attorney after their accident. While it seems obvious that you should contact an attorney after sustaining a severe injury due to another party’s negligence, many people don’t contact attorneys. If you recently sustained a personal injury in an accident because of someone else’s negligence, we urge you to reach out to an attorney. A skilled attorney can help you deal with insurance companies, protect you against legal claims by other parties, and ensure you receive maximum compensation.

If you’ve been injured in a Florida car accident that was not your fault, you may find yourself considering not hiring an attorney for many reasons. Below are four main reasons people don’t call personal injury attorneys.

They Are Unsure if They Need an Attorney

After an accident, it can be challenging to determine whether or not you have a case. Unfortunately, many choose not to contact a personal injury attorney because they are afraid they don’t have a case. The reality is that you can only determine whether or not you have a valid case after calling an attorney.

They Believe in Forgiveness

Even if you forgive the person that hurt you, it does not mean that they should not be held answerable, nor does it mean you should ignore your needs. If you choose to forgive the individual or party that hurt you, that’s wonderful because not many people can do that. However, forgiving them should not equate to you giving up your right to compensation.

They Don’t Have Time

The fact that you don’t have time is one of the main reasons you should call a personal injury attorney. Dealing with insurance companies can be time-consuming. Negotiating with insurance adjusters, dealing with the paperwork, and endless calls can leave you having no time to do anything else. When you choose to handle all this on your own, even recovering from your injuries may prove difficult. However, when you call an attorney and let them help you handle all that for you, you will find that you can focus on your healing and other things.

They Assume They Can’t Afford an Attorney

Indeed, some attorneys can be expensive. However, when you work with the Pendas Law Firm, the firm will cater for all costs upfront. If our team manages to settle your case or win at trial, we will recover our money out of the settlement or award from the jury. On the other hand, if we are unsuccessful, you won’t be responsible for any costs.
