There are several types of personal injury cases that are never pursued for a variety of reasons. Whether it involves a car accident, a workplace injury or product liability, people often decide not to take legal action because they either believe it’s not worth the effort, or they think it’s too expensive. It’s very important that you talk to a lawyer if you are ever hurt due to another party’s negligence. If you don’t, you might be on your own when it comes to medical expenses, lost wages and more.
Protect Your Rights
These are just a few examples of personal injury cases that people often don’t pursue.
- Workplace accidents – If you are hurt on the job, it’s very important that you talk to an attorney. Many employees are hesitant to take action for fear of losing their job, but an attorney will work to make sure your rights are protected.
- Car accidents – A lot of people suffer injuries due to auto accidents, of course, but sometimes these injuries are not immediately apparent. If you don’t think you were hurt seriously and decide you don’t want to take legal action against those responsible, that could end up being one of the worst decisions you’ve ever made. It can take months or even years for some injuries to start showing symptoms. If you wait too long and the statute of limitations expires, you will not have any legal recourse.
- Product liability – All manufacturers have the duty of making sure their products are safe for use, and that they accurately provide information regarding their potential danger. If they fail to uphold that duty, they can be held liable for any injuries their products cause.
