Here's a basic question about your recent Vancouver pedestrian accident that you may not have thought to ask:

 

Why are you thinking about pursuing legal action?

 

Most people have a gut answer to this question. Maybe an idiot on a cell phone hit you at an intersection; you want that idiot to pay and to be held accountable.

 

Or maybe you desperately need money to pay for your medical/surgical bills.

 

You might be surprised by how infrequently people think about the “why” behind their quest for justice and compensation.

 

When we don’t understand why we’re engaged with any particular project, we can lose focus, get off track, go in a million directions, and miss out on opportunities to solve our biggest challenges using shortcuts and outside resources.

 

Make no mistake: Understanding the why is essential, if you want to engage effectively with the many projects on your plate that are related to your Vancouver pedestrian injury.

 

Knowing your purpose will help you align and focus and figure out a great vision.

 

For instance, let’s say that you really just want to stick it to the guy who hit you: you want to see his license revoked and to collect as much money from him as the law will allow. That’s not the most kindhearted objective. But if it is your purpose, then certain strategies will appeal more than others. For instance, you might be less inclined as to agree to a settlement.

 

On the other hand, if your purpose is to recover your health and move on as quickly as possible from this chapter in your life—that is, you’re not concerned about maximizing your recovery—then your approach will be different.

 

You might be far more inclined to settle and less inclined to fight for every penny.

 

If you haven’t given enough thought to the purpose behind your quest for compensation and justice—and if you’re like most people, then you have not—do yourself a favor and spend 5 to 10 minutes right now thinking it through and talking it over with your spouse or family members.

 

This is not just an intellectual exercise!

 

It’s an exercise designed to help you get and stay focused, so that you can dispatch with your injury-related problems in an efficient and satisfying way.
