Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyer Blog: Three Myths About Car Accident Lawsuits

 

Did you know there are many myths about car accident personal injury claims?  It feels impossible to turn on the television or drive down the block without being bombarded with lawyers, courtroom reality television, and crime dramas. It can feel like we know everything we need to about lawsuits, but often popular fiction and television do not reflect reality. I’m Attorney Mike Bottaro and in this blog I’ll discuss three myths about lawsuits.

Myth #1: I Cannot Afford A Personal Injury Lawyer: A common myth is that regular injured people cannot afford a lawyer to fight for them.  Legal services aren’t adequately distributed to those who need them. As Jay M. Feinman indicates in The Washington Post, “according to the Legal Services Corporation, low-income Americans received inadequate or no legal help for 86 percent of their civil legal problems.” But at the Bottaro Law Firm, we are proud to represent all people, regardless of their wealth. With our No-Fee Guarantee, we can take your case with absolutely no upfront fees at all!

Some people feel that they cannot afford a personal injury lawyer and would be better handling it without a lawyer – this is a huge mistake.  You simply cannot imagine the complexity, forms, paperwork, and tricks played on unrepresented personal injury victims by the big insurance companies.  These companies will do whatever they can to pay you as little as possible. You need to call or text me 24/7 (401-777-7777) immediately and I’ll help you get the settlement you deserve!

Myth # 2: I Have To “Sue” In Order To Obtain A Cash Settlement: With pop-culture’s obsession with true crime and courtroom reality television, it can feel like America is overly involved in litigation culture. The National Center for State Courts shows the contrary, showing that between 2009 and 2015 civil caseloads dropped at an annual rate of 3.5 percent. While the media focuses heavily on court cases, many Americans do not realize they are entitled to any legal representation.

Did you know that here at The Bottaro Law Firm, due to our expertise and reputation, we can often settle your case out of court – without you ever having to appear or testify?!

Myth #3 It is Wrong To Make A Personal Injury Claim. I Do Not Want To Financially Hurt Anyone.  You may feel “bad” about contacting our firm; as if the person who injured you in the car accident will suffer out of his or her own pocket.  This is not true! The requirement that we all buy auto insurance is so that in times of personal injury, the auto insurance company, not the person who caused the crash, has to pay you the fair amount you deserve! At Bottaro Law, we fight for your rights against the big auto insurance companies.
