What are some common misconceptions about personal injury cases in Florida?

Cases take a lot of time and effort

Some people might think that pursuing a case is not worth it due to the time and effort it takes to do so. However, it is important that people not make this assumption right away, since the time and effort involved can vary greatly depending on the type of case that they have.

Injury cases are only for severe injuries

Similarly, some people tend to believe that there is no point in filing a claim for a minor accident or injury. But there are a few reasons why people should think twice about this common misconception. One reason is that a seemingly minor injury can turn more serious, and another is that it is still important that the person who caused the injury has an opportunity to learn from their error.

Parties will have to go to trial

There are many reasons why someone may want to avoid appearing in court if they can, including a fear of public speaking and lack of time or childcare. However, keep in mind that many injury cases can get resolved out of court.

Consider these common misconceptions about personal injury cases before deciding whether or not to pursue a claim.
