Insurance Industry Propoganda - Don't Believe it - I've never met anyone who was happy to have been hurt in a car accident

Insurance companies want you to believe that most people who’ve been injured in a car accident are more interested in getting a payday than getting better.

In my experience nothing could be further from the truth!

In fact, I’ve been a personal injury lawyer for over 20 years. And I’ve never met anyone who’s happy to have been hurt in a car crash.

There’s a story in today’s Province newspaper that’s the perfect case in point.

It’s the story of Kris Stanbra.

Kris was in a car accident in 1980. And broke her back.

At age 28 doctors told Kris Stanbra that she’d never walk again, never have children and never be able to enjoy an active lifestyle.

Well, she proved them wrong.

It’s a great story. A story that shows just how far most people are willing to go to recover from their injuries.

You see, Kris Stanbra didn’t  just roll over.

She put everything she had into her recovery. And she’s come a long way.

But here’s the thing. She’s not alone.

In my experience the vast majority of people who get hurt in a car accident try their very best to recover quickly.

They don’t just sit around and wait for a cheque.

They work hard to get back to work, to get back to enjoying their sports/hobbies and to doing the little things -like holding their children again.

Is it easy to recovery from serious injuries? Of course not.

Overcoming significant physical and emotional problems often involves: long-term medical care; time off of work; extensive therapy; and lots of medication.

So don’t believe the insurance industry when it claims that people involved in car accidents are often looking to “milk the system”.

In my experience very few people are happy to have been injured in a car accident, let alone looking to profit from an injury claim.

Instead there are just unfortunate people like Kris Stanbra. People who’ve been injured in an accident they didn’t cause.

And who are willing to put in the blood, sweat and tears needed to get back on their feet again.
