Have you heard the one, what’s the difference between a good lawyer and a bad lawyer? A bad lawyer lets a case drag on for a couple of months. A good lawyer knows how to drag the case on for even longer. Or maybe you heard this one, a lawyer wakes up from surgery and asks the nurse why the blinds are drawn. She responds that there is a fire going on outside and she didn’t want the lawyer to think that the surgery killed him. Or, the final one, how many lawyer jokes are there anyway? Only three, the rest are true stories. These jokes are just a small, small sample of a large accumulation of jokes there are about lawyers. Some jokes are funny while others really have a hard punch line. So why do lawyers get such a bad rap? Because some lawyers really are that bad. Some lawyers really don’t care about you as a person. All they see is dollar signs. They have no interest in resolution. Instead, they want to keep you in court.
We know these kinds all too well. If you or a loved one is experiencing an injury from someone or some party’s negligence, the last thing you want to do is to keep going back and forth to court. The last thing you want to do is to keep repeating what happened and reopening those wounds. Lawyers get a bad reputation because they let their clients fall through the cracks. They see a client that can get them more money and they ditch you. This kind of practice is what fuels those jokes and prevents people from getting the real help that they need.
So, why hire a personal injury lawyer?
If you have been injured due to the negligence of someone else then you need representation. Representation in court will increase your chances of not only getting an issue resolved but getting the outcome that you deserve. For example, when you sue someone for a personal injury you are really suing their insurance company. Insurance companies are great at pretending that they care for other people. At the end of the day, an insurance company is just a business, a business that knows the power of negotiation and fear tactic of being a large company.
