You've been lied to. It's as simple as that.
The insurance industry has tried to influence the minds of the American people against the process of civil justice, which has served us for centuries. Reports of a “litigation explosion” are simply a lie, created by a statistical trick.
Americans are among the least litigious of any western nation. The vast majority of injured people never bring a claim for their injuries, and of those who do, many never receive fair compensation. Despite this misinformation by insurance companies, a competent attorney can help you get justice, while giving businesses and individuals the incentive to act with due care for the health and safety of others.
A Note on the Statistical Tricks of the Insurance Companies
The facts are clear. There is no lawsuit crisis in America. In fact, in the ten year period between 2002 and 2011, (the latest available period),negligence lawsuits decreased by 25% despite a population increase of 8%. Only a small percentage of negligence claims are ever filed as lawsuits
How does the Insurance Information Institute convince Americans that they are “sue happy?” Simple. By lumping tort claims in with mushrooming bankruptcies, divorces and business litigation under the general title of “civil lawsuits.”
Don't buy the lie. If you've been injured by someone else's negligence, you have a right to compensation. We'd like to help you.
