Myths About Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

Hiring the right attorney is critical to the success of your personal injury case. Legal processes can be difficult to understand. But, with the right lawyer on your side, you could successfully navigate your case.

In an interview with Tom Buford of the Attorney Success Podcast, Mike Hancock of Hancock Injury Attorneys shares some thoughts on some common misconceptions about hiring a lawyer. We believe you should understand these myths so you can take the appropriate next steps for your case.

Do Insurance Companies Prefer To Settle Or Litigate?

One of the most common misconceptions about personal injury cases is the idea that insurance companies would rather settle a case than litigate. Many people believe these companies do not what to spend time or money on court proceedings, but this is not the case.

Insurance companies have dedicated in-house counsel that will take the time to litigate, as this can keep costs down for them. One big-name insurance company in the area houses a team of 25 lawyers just for the city of Tampa.

Are All Law Firms Practically The Same?

In a hyper-competitive market for attorneys in Tampa, many law practitioners have become a commodity. From radio and television ads to billboards along a highway, different law firms are featured all over the city.

The abundance of advertisements leads to a belief that all law firms are practically the same. However, it is hard to be sure if someone featured in an ad is an experienced legal professional. It is crucial to do your due diligence when choosing an attorney for your personal injury claim.
