The Truth About Personal Injury Cases: Debunking Marketing Myths

Brubaker Injury Law

February 2, 2023


In the world of personal injury law, flashy marketing campaigns often highlight jaw-dropping jury verdicts. Billboards, TV commercials, and online ads tout astronomical sums awarded by juries. But here’s the reality: very few cases actually go to trial. The majority of personal injury claims are resolved through pre-suit negotiations, and choosing the right attorney can make all the difference. Let’s dive into the truth behind the hype and why prompt action, communication, and early case management matter.

A Major Marketing Myth

The Showdown That Rarely Happens

While courtroom dramas make for riveting TV, the truth is that jury trials are the exception, not the rule. Most personal injury cases never see the inside of a courtroom. Instead, they are settled through negotiations between the parties. If you’ve been injured by the negligence of others and liability and damages are clear, an insurance company is not likely to take on an exorbitantly expensive battle in litigation or trial that they know they’re going to lose.

Most often, a case that requires trial has a major issue in relation to damages and/or liability – a case that can go either way. In these cases, a skilled trial attorney will always be essential. However, straight forward cases rarely require the time and expense of litigation or trial. For example, if you suffered a permanent injury in a rear end accident, and the defendant has only $100,000 in insurance coverage, a skilled personal injury attorney should be able to obtain that $100,000 without incurring the time and tribulations of litigation or incurring the costs of trial, which takes substantial sums of money out of your pocket.

The Power of Pre-Suit Negotiations

Swift Resolution and Less Stress

Pre-suit negotiations offer several advantages:

  • Speed: Resolving a case before trial is faster. No lengthy court battles, no waiting years for a verdict.
  • Emotional Relief: The ups and downs of litigation are avoided. Clients can focus on healing.

The Role of Your Attorney

Choosing an attorney who excels in pre-suit negotiations is crucial. Here’s why:

  1. Prompt Action: A proactive attorney acts swiftly. They gather evidence, interview witnesses, and assess liability early on.
  2. Regular Communication: Clear communication keeps clients informed. Regular updates ensure transparency.
  3. Early Investigation: Investigating promptly preserves crucial evidence. Waiting can weaken your case.
  4. Insurance Coverage: Identifying insurance coverage early helps determine available compensation.
  5. Demanding Your Case: A skilled attorney demands fair compensation without delay.
  6. The Pitfalls of Delay

Neglect and Undervaluation

  • Case Neglect: Overburdened attorneys may neglect cases due to high caseloads. Your case deserves attention.
  • Undervaluation: Rushed settlements can undervalue your claim. An attorney who acts promptly maximizes compensation.

The Right Choice for Personal Injury Victims

Individual Attention Matters

Choose an attorney who prioritizes you:

  • Experience: Look for a track record of success.
  • Client-Centric Approach: An attorney who communicates, investigates, and demands early ensures your case receives the attention it deserves.


While jury verdicts make headlines, the heart of personal injury law lies in the day-to-day work of skilled attorneys. Choose wisely—opt for an attorney who fights for you from the outset.
