We get calls every day from people who believe they have been harmed by a medical professional’s negligence. Every so often, someone prefaces their conversation with, “I’m not one of those people who file lawsuits.” The truth of the matter is that anyone has a right to file a lawsuit, and it doesn’t make you a bad person. It is a myth that the only people who file suit are money-hungry or greedy.
People who file lawsuits rarely make millions of dollars. When people file suit against a medical professional, it is because they are suffering with a financial loss through no fault of their own. They are strapped with medical bills because of someone’s negligence or error. If you are in a car accident and sustain property damage, you don’t expect to have to pay out of pocket for repairs, do you? Why, then, would you feel any differently about paying medical bills that were caused by someone’s negligence?
No one should feel ashamed for filing a lawsuit. For every off-the-wall reason that people file suit, there are thousands more who have a legitimate reason to do so. People often feel as though they are doing something wrong by filing suit when, in reality, they are only protecting their interests and that of their families. If you have been harmed at the hands of a medical professional, do not let your feelings about filing a lawsuit make you hesitant in contacting an attorney. You should not have to face financial ruin for something that was out of your control.
