The Myths of Personal Injury Lawyers

Jun 20, 2008
Personal Injury Lawyers is one of those groups of people that just seem to have all sorts of myths and rumors flying around about them. Everything from jokes to stereotypes can surround the profession of a lawyer it seems especially with a Utah personal injury lawyer. Most of the things you hear aren't true, they are blown out of proportion until they are almost too big to believe. Here are just a couple of those myths and the truths behind them.

Quite a few people believe that if you are an injured person and you hire a personal injury lawyer you are guaranteed big bucks when you win. The truth of the matter is a personal injury lawyer won't just take any case, so just because you are injured doesn't mean you have a case. There are very specific criteria they look at before they ever accept a case and even after that there is no promise that you will win.

Another idea that media has planted in our heads is that you shouldn't cooperate with law enforcement until you have spoken with your lawyer. The fact of the matter is if you don't cooperate it could hinder your case because the police will miss opportunities to find vital evidence. The questions they ask could lead to more information from other sources that could help your case. Not to mention that to a jury it can often cause them to wonder why you wouldn't if you were innocent. Cooperating with law enforcement is always a good idea, whether your personal injury attorney is there or not.

Most of us are very independent people, we would rather just solve things on our own and forget about it. When it comes to personal injury cases that can be very dangerous because someone who was a fault could, one, take advantage of you and your situation and you will never receive the proper compensation even if they promised it. And two, if you do resolve it outside the court room that person may go on to commit the same crime again to another person.

There are several more stereotypes and myths that society buys into and that weren't dispelled here. Just be careful what you believe before you research, believing the wrong thing can get you into a lot of trouble, especially when it comes to anything to do with the legal world. Getting your personal injury lawyer doesn't have to be a scary thing if you gathering the right information.
