Many of our car accident clients from Carroll County, Frederick County, and Howard County are hesitant to hire a personal injury attorney.
We always ask them during a free consultation: Have you ever hired an accident lawyer before? The answer is almost always: No.
We follow up with: Well, what are your biggest fears about hiring a personal injury attorney?
The number one fear might surprise you.
Biggest Fear When Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer
By far the most common fear we hear from our clients when it comes to hiring a personal injury lawyer is that they don’t want to sue the person that injured them and cause them any trouble.
This is usually followed up with a reminder that they aren’t doing this for the money.
Are we going to sue the other person?
No one wants to have to sue anyone. It’s an inconvenience for all parties.
What I remind people is that many personal injury cases resolve out of court with a settlement. Also, the decision to file a lawsuit is ultimately theirs and not the attorney’s choice.
We also remind them that the other person’s insurance is there to help and protect the at-fault party. Nobody really gets in trouble.
Once we help our clients get over these fears they are usually ready for us to assist them with their car accident claim.
Here’s what a recent client had to say about working with our office on their accident case:
“What a great experience this was. I’ve never had to use a lawyer before and was very hesitant to do so. Ross and his team made the experience very easy. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a lawyer. Thank you, Ross and your team!”
