Goliath Exposed!

Goliath can cast an intimidating shadow to say the least. As Dothan, Alabama personal injury and accident lawyers at the Gartlan Injury Law, we understand the pressures families face when considering legal help. In our book that was written for you to empower you, entitled David vs. Goliath: The Slingshot, Shepherd’s Bag, Five Smooth Stones and Invisible Armor You Need for Justice, we explore the weapons, tactics and secrets big corporations use against innocent personal injury and accident victims.

No one goes out on the road expecting to be in a car crash. But once an automobile accident happens, a subtle “ticking clock” starts to count down. Witness statements, evidence, and pictures of the vehicle wreck scene can get lost or destroyed, or even fade or disappear. You may understand this now, in the abstract. However, in the chaos of the immediate aftermath of a motor vehicle accident, you will likely be distracted by 101 things, not to mention the excruciating pain and suffering of the injury, your understandable anger at the driver, and your shock.

Insurance corporations know that personal injury and accident victims that retain legal representation resolve their personal injury and wrongful death claims for vastly higher amounts than do victims who fail to retain counsel. The same corporations are armed their own legal counsel and team of experts on staff to protect their bottom line.

Although every personal injury and accident is unique and scary in its own way, there are “rules of thumb” that apply to almost every accident that involves damages and personal injuries. In our book David vs. Goliath, we have outlined four major methods Goliaths use – oftentimes in meetings or over the phone – to either delay personal injury and accident victims from seeking counsel or ruling it out altogether. Knowing this information in advance leads you to being better prepared for some of the large rocks Goliath throws your way to discourage you.
