I’m Not The Type of Person To Sue
Each day people call us and tell us they have been injured in an accident. No matter what type of accident the person experienced, they likely have suffered losses due to the accident. Understandably, these people want to seek compensation so that they will be reimbursed for their losses. Many of these people tell us that “I’m not the type of person to sue.” Sometimes people feel guilty for wanting to get compensation for their losses. They don’t want to get anyone in trouble and don’t want it to seem that they are litigious. But for anyone that has been involved in a serious car accident, or other type of accident, they know that the medical bills and other losses can add up quickly. Maybe too wages are being lost. These people realize that the losses add up and that they should be reimbursed not only for these measurable out-of-pocket losses, but also should be compensation for their pain and suffering.
These victims of personal injury accidents often are not aware they they may not even have to sue the person or company that caused their accident. The reason is because it is the insurance company for the person or company that caused the accident is who actually pays for these losses. After all, that is why we have insurance. For example, if you have a workers’ compensation case in Massachusetts, your claim will be with your employer’s insurance company, rather than with the employer itself. Of, if you get rear-ended or t-boned in a car accident, the at-fault driver’s insurance company is the one that will be paying out a settlement, as opposed to the driver personally for causing the accident.
Even the claim with the insurance company does not settle, then a lawsuit may be necessary. But, even if you or your personal injury lawyer files a lawsuit agains the responsible party, it still does not change the fact that it is the insurance company that will be paying out, as opposed to the person or company that caused the accident. It is this way with all personal injury cases such as motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, wrongful death claim, etc.
