Is There a Lawsuit Crisis in Our Country?

Did you know that there really is not a lawsuit crisis stemming from injury cases or cases brought by individuals? I’m North Carolina attorney David Daggett.

There’s a perception that there’s a lawsuit crisis in our country. We hear it in the news media. We hear it from politicians, and we hear it on TV commercials from insurance companies. The truth is there has been a growth of busyness in our courthouses over recent years, but that increase in number of cases is mainly from an increase in the number of criminal cases, an increase in the number of domestic cases, and an increase in the number of cases of companies against other companies.

However, did you know that in recent years there’s actually been a decrease in the number of cases that are brought by injured people? So, please help others to understand that any courthouse crisis or lawsuit crisis that you hear about in North Carolina or even the country at large, is not coming from injured people from car accidents and things like that. That simply is not true. Statistically, the number of those cases has actually gone down
over the years.

Thank you for joining us to learn a little bit more about our legal system.

After my car accident, the amount of paperwork became overwhelming and quite stressful to keep up with. I contacted Daggett Shuler and was immediately put at ease. The meeting was set up very promptly and we were told to not worry and let them handle the details.

Once the portal was set up, I received frequent updates. If I had questions that could not be addressed by email, I would receive a phone call. I never felt rushed or that my questions were not important.

Upon completion of my case, I felt that everything had been done to ensure a proper outcome of my situation. Everyone in the office is polite, respectful and professional. I would highly recommend Daggett Shuler. They made a difficult time in my life much easier to deal with.
