Myths About Personal Injury Lawyers

One of the biggest things you’ll hear about personal injury lawyers is that they’re sharks, just chasing after the money. You will often hear them referred to as ambulance chasers. Lawyers like Tony Lafazanis chose this field of law because of a desire to help people.

There are many reasons you may find yourself needing to hire a personal injury lawyer. The most common ones that people think of are slip and fall cases and motor vehicle accidents. However, these aren’t the only times you might need a personal injury lawyer. Tony also has experience with wrongful death cases, long-term disability, and dog bites.

Another myth about personal injury lawyers is that you pay a lot of money and may not even get any money in the settlement! Hiring Tony Lafazanis is risk-free. If there isn’t a settlement, you don’t pay anything.

Benefits of a Personal Injury Lawyer

There are many benefits to hiring a personal injury lawyer. These include specialized knowledge and experience that only a lawyer would have. With over 35 years of working in this area of law, Tony knows the ins and outs of personal injury and disability insurance law, the court system, and how to get a settlement.

Another benefit to this experience is knowing the right way to approach different types of claims, something which can be hard to understand without a familiarity of each type of claim.
