Three Things That Keep Personal Injury Victims From Pursuing Their Cases


At Get Me Justice, we are adamant that each and every person in the Sunshine State who has been victimized in a vehicle crash or slip and fall should aggressively pursue his or her rights.

However, we also know that there are many factors that have prevented people from pursuing their accident cases in the past. Some go through the mind of accident victims very commonly.

If you are wondering whether or not to pursue your case, the best thing to do is talk directly to a lawyer. However, by educating yourself, you position yourself to make an informed decision.

In that spirit, let’s look at some of the most common reasons people don’t pursue their case:

1) The Feeling That It “Wasn’t So Bad” Or That They Should “Tough It Out”

To make a long story short, nobody really wants to go to court — neither you nor the person or entity who might have contributed to your accident. However, it’s not always obvious right away what the implications of an accident may be. A comparatively minor injury could affect your life for years or be much worse than it seemed at first, leading to major medical bills.

2) Desire To Avoid A “Long And Drawn Out” Court Case

This goes back to the point above. The truth is that nobody really wants to fight a long battle in court, but the onus to avoid this is on the person or persons responsible for the accident. When the responsibility falls on a business or public entity, it’s very typical for them to make a deal out of court — however, a reasonable settlement can only be obtained with the help of a good lawyer.

3) Concerns That They Might Have Been Personally Responsible For The Accident

Sometimes, accidents just happen. It’s important to distinguish between these “no fault” issues and accidents that were actually caused by, or made substantially more likely by, the behavior of another person. Even if you sincerely believe that no one is at fault, or that you shoulder the blame yourself, there are aspects to the law that might give you a different perspective.

Insurance companies often “strong arm” accident victims, and accident victims who walk away from the opportunity to pursue a case could find themselves on the hook for tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills — or even more.

In many ways, pursuing a case truly is the “defensive” option.
