Are Personal Injury Lawsuits Necessary?


  • 1. To Compensate VictimsThe criminal justice system punishes those who break the law, but the fines they assign don’t go towards helping a criminal’s victims – all they do is fill the government’s coffers. If a person was robbed, whether through a mugging or through a Ponzi scheme, the only likely way he or she will see any sort of restitution is by suing the culprit in civil court.
  • 2. To Guarantee CompensationNot every financial dispute has to go through the courts. A lot of the time the people involved can come to a reasonable settlement without having to bring in anyone else. Or if that’s not enough, the two parties can come to a resolution by bringing in a third-party mediator or going to an arbitration board.However, not every disagreement is so amicable. Insurance companies, for example, are always on the lookout for ways to lower expenses, and one of the best ways to do that is to find reasons to reduce or refuse claims. It stinks, but it’s legal. On the other hand, the best way you can get an insurance company to offer you a reasonable settlement is to bring in a lawyer and threaten to sue. When the alternative to giving the claimant what he or she needs is an expensive lawsuit, the equation changes and the settlement becomes the better option.
  • 3. To Punish WrongdoersCivil lawsuits may sometimes be the only form of justice you can get from a given incident. Our justice system says that defendants are innocent until proven guilty so that fewer innocent people will be wrongly convicted, but it also means that guilty individuals sometimes go free on technicalities. Other times, someone may not be guilty of a death or an injury but still be responsible for it. In both cases, a civil lawsuit can make the person at fault pay damages even if the criminal courts cannot.
  • 4. To Discover WrongdoingPolice detectives and investigative reporters aren’t the only ones who uncover secret conspiracies or criminal activity. Sometimes the government and the media both fail us, and it falls to a personal injury lawyer working tirelessly on a case to discover what a major corporation has been hiding from the public.When it first became public knowledge that asbestos insulation is harmful to people’s lungs, a personal injury lawyer was the one who proved that the companies selling asbestos knew it was dangerous from the very beginning. And if it weren’t for a wrongful death suit, GM may never have admitted that its faulty ignition switches were responsible for hundreds of accidents across the United States.

If someone has seriously harmed you, your property, or your loved ones, don’t try to face your opponent without any help. Hire a personal injury lawyer who knows your state laws, has the resources it takes to go to court, and has the skill to negotiate so that it doesn’t have to come to that.
