Many people seem to think that getting a huge settlement for pain and suffering is a piece of cake. This "can I get rich from an injury?" misconception isn’t helped by the abundance of attorney billboards and advertisements here in South Florida. The ads depict people who win tons of money all thanks to their Personal Injury case. But here’s the truth: you don't want that. Attorney Grant J. Skolnick explains in the video below.
There are a number of variables which determine the value of a case. If someone has been awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars, the reality is that they: have been seriously injured, treated extensively, and suffered permanent damage.
Knowing when you have a Personal Injury case may not always be obvious. It’s important to remember that just because you got hurt does not necessarily mean you have a claim. Simply put, there needs to be an accident and you need to be hurt because someone else did something they shouldn’t have done. Proving both the guilt of the at-fault party and the extent of the injuries they caused you to suffer are integral parts of a successful claim.
