In every profession, there are a few “bad apples.” Personal injury law is no different. There are (and always will be) personal injury attorneys who advertise with grandiose claims to help their clients essentially “get rich quick” with a settlement. You may have seen the on billboards and TV commercials.
Some of these attorneys take on questionable cases, take advantage of their clients, and operate with their eyes fixed on one thing: the dollar sign. Oftentimes, these attorneys settle cases for quick cash, rather than working for the best interests of their client. These few “bad apples” have unfortunately tainted the general public’s perception of personal injury lawyers.
You will find dishonest and unethical “professionals” working in any field, but the media will exploit the few cases in which ethics are broken, or wrongdoing is uncovered. While most attorneys are doing good work for both their clients and their communities, it is often overlooked.
Personal injury lawyers seem to take the brunt of the negative opinion about attorneys. In Dallas alone, there are dozens of billboards and television commercials of personal injury lawyers who suggest high dollar settlements for individuals injured in an automobile accident. These big claims and frequently impossible to achieve ideas make personal injury attorneys look worse than the worst used car salesman.
It is true that lawyers, especially personal injury attorneys, have a poor reputation in the public’s eyes. In reality, there are only a handful of lawyers who are working only to get rich off their clients’ cases. Don’t let a few bad apples spoil the whole bunch.
