Filing a Personal Injury Claim is NOT about Greed…

If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, the thought of filing a personal injury claim can be overwhelming and might even stir up feelings of guilt or worry. You might question whether taking legal action makes you appear greedy or litigious, especially when you’re already dealing with the physical and emotional toll of an injury.

These feelings are not only common, but are also deeply human. However, it’s important to understand that seeking compensation through a personal injury claim is not about greed – it’s about securing justice and the support you rightfully deserve. Whether you’re dealing with mounting medical bills, lost wages, or the enduring pain of recovery, remember: you are NOT in this alone, and you’re NOT wrong for wanting what’s fair. Fighting for your rights is not just beneficial, it’s essential. That said, let’s talk about the process, including:

  • Myths vs. Facts.
  • What you are entitled to and why.


GOLDLAW Founder & CEO Craig Goldenfarb explains some common misconceptions about fling a personal injury claim:

1. MYTH: You are “suing” the person who injured you.

FACT: “When an individual files a personal injury claim, it’s not a vendetta against someone else. Although you want to hold the person(s) responsible for your injuries accountable, you are not suing them. You are suing the insurance company(s). In the case of a car accident, for example, the person who hit you pays premiums to their insurer for this reason.”

2. MYTH: Insurance companies will “look out” for you because you pay them premiums

FACT: “Insurance companies have one job, and that is NOT to pay! They have one main mission: making a profit. They have a vested interest in minimizing payments. That’s why you should hire an experienced personal injury lawyer if you want to file a claim. It does not make sense to go it alone.”

3. MYTH: Hiring a lawyer is expensive and unnecessary.

FACT: “Personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis, meaning they only get paid if you win your case. Having a lawyer can significantly increase your chances of receiving fair compensation and navigating the complexities of the legal process.”

4. MYTH: Personal injury lawsuits are always frivolous and clog up the courts.

FACT: “The vast majority of personal injury cases, – 95% + –  settle out of court. Lawsuits are typically filed when a fair settlement can’t be reached, and they serve an important role in holding negligent parties accountable. ‘Frivolous’ lawsuits are extremely rare, and are often dismissed by the court.”

5. MYTH: It takes years to resolve a personal injury claim.

FACT: “The length of time to resolve a claim varies, depending on the complexity of the case and the willingness of both parties to negotiate. Many cases take months, while others may take longer. At GOLDLAW, 90% of our clients get a top settlement in under a year.”


If you’ve been hurt in Florida because someone else was careless or reckless, here’s what you can generally expect to get if you file a personal injury claim:

1. Money for your Bills

If you‘ve had to see doctors, stay in the hospital, or get any kind of medical treatment because of your injuries, the person who caused them may have to pay for all of that. This also includes any medical care you might need in the future because of your injuries.

2. Compensation for Lost Wages

If you can’t work because you are recovering, you can ask for money to cover he wages you missed out on. And if your injury keeps you from making as much money as you did before, you can claim for that loss too.

3. Repair or Replacement Costs

If any of your stuff was damaged during the incident, (like your car in a crash), you can get money to fix or replace it.

4. Money for you Pain and Troubles

This isn’t about bills or anything you can easily put a price on. It’s about compensating you for the physical pain and emotional upset you’ve endured. This also covers the enjoyment you miss out on because your injuries keep you from participating in hobbies and everyday pleasures, like playing with your kids.

5. Punitive Damages (sometimes)

In rare cases, if the person who caused you injury was really reckless or did something horrible, you might get extra money meant to punish them and prevent them from doing it again.

6. Claims for the Worst Cases

If someone dies because of their injuries, their family can pursue compensation for things like funeral costs, lost income, and the personal loss from losing the deceased.

Remember. Filing a personal injury claim is all about making sure you’re not left handling all of these burdens or your own. It’s not about being greedy.
