The justice system in America has never been balanced based on the financial strength of the parties involved.
In a personal injury lawsuit, the plaintiff is always at a disadvantage when trying to bring a claim against large, well-funded insurance companies that use financial strength to their advantage.
Financial strain not only impacts a plaintiff’s life but also the case. A financially desperate plaintiff is not in a favorable position regarding settlement negotiations. Insurance companies know this. They are notorious for making a low-ball offer in hopes that the plaintiff is willing to accept a quick settlement in order to make ends meet. But, what else is a plaintiff to do when he/she is injured and unable to work, but the bills continue to come in?
