12/30/13: The Stigma of the Litigious Plaintiff in Fort Myers, Naples and Port Charlotte

If you have been injured due to the negligence of another in Fort Myers, Naples, or Port Charlotte you have a right to file suit against the negligent party in order to obtain monetary compensation. However, many people who have been injured due to the fault of another are hesitant to hire a personal injury lawyer and take legal action.

Those hesitant to file suit generally do not want to be seen as litigious people and are worried about a percieved societal stigma that is attached to those who file lawsuits. In reality, any stigma that exists relative to standing up for yourself when you have been injured is a creation of the deep pocketed insurance industry and their well funded lobbyists. The insurance companies have a tremedous amount to gain if people are hesitant to file lawsuits as the less they have to pay for the injuries caused by the negligence of their insured the greater their profits become.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of another it is your right to seek economic compensation. Do not let yourself be manipulated by insurance companies and others who have a vested interest completely opposed to your own. Contact a lawyer from Viacava & Cantor today if you have any questions regarding a potential personal injury claim.
