ANSWER: Only you can make that decision. Our job is to analyze your legal rights, and if we believe you have a valid claim, to give you advice about your claim’s potential. Many people have reservations about filing a lawsuit for moral, spiritual or emotional reasons. Unfortunately, our system requires that a lawsuit be filed against the responsible party, but rarely does that party bear the actual financial burden of the claim. Insurance companies invariably pay any settlement or judgment, and are obligated to also hire attorneys for the defendant to handle the claim. So, while the same philosophical considerations may enter in to the discussion, lawsuits rarely impose a direct financial burden on the person or company sued.
