December 31, 2019: “I’m not the type to sue.”
Far too often, attorneys hear this from injured persons expressing reluctance to pursue a claim for damages following an accident. Although it typically is coming from a good place, the reality is that your choice to forego a claim really only hurts one person: you.
Like it or not, the world we live in today is one of insurance policies. Almost everything we do – owning a home, driving a car or running a business – requires insurance. Whether your injury results from a motor vehicle accident, a trip and fall, a construction accident, a faulty device or product, or some other circumstance, there is probably an insurance policy in place to make sure that you get paid for your injuries. In almost every single instance, the person or entity responsible for your injury never has to take even a dollar out of their pocket to pay you.
If you have been hurt because of someone else’s negligence and are reluctant to pursue a claim, remember: that’s what the insurance is there for. In many instances, a settlement can be obtained without ever filing a lawsuit.
Our personal injury team, run by John Ventosa and Raymond Iaia, will make sure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries. Call the accident attorneys at McCabe Coleman Ventosa & Patterson, PLLC today.
