The #1 Question Injured People NEVER Ask -- But SHOULD!
People Should Ask This Question
In this article, I'm going to talk about it's sort of a weird topic. I'm going to answer the number one question that clients never ask. But it's the question that I really think is in their hearts. I know it's in there because of some of the other questions they do ask me. The question is if I got hurt, is everything going to be okay? Does that sound generic to you? If you haven't been hurt or if you're not very honest with yourself, you may say, "hmm what does this guy even talking about?"
Is everything going to be all right? That's crazy. But I'll tell you, people ask me,
Do I have a good case? Can I go to the doctor? Is everything going to be okay at work? Am I going to get better? How long will the case take? Will I get in trouble if I do a case?
These sort of stuff.

Is Everything Going To Be Okay?
People want information but behind a lot of those questions, is a very real question. The emotional question behind those questions is, Is everything going to be okay? And especially if it's a more serious injury. I feel like people are really worried about
"Am I ever going to go back to being the way I was before?" "Am I gonna get better?" Am I going to be able to keep my job?" "Am I going to live the life I lived?"
The good news for you is, I think most people think that injury lawyers handle nothing but million-dollar cases. The truth is, and this will make you feel better, but it's also really the truth. Most cases are small, and they involve temporary injuries that have little or no effect on your long-term prospects for health and happiness. I've definitely handled lots of cases where the injury really represented a change for the person in their life in a really profound way. But I am here to tell you that that's rare and we have never lived in a better time than right now. From the standpoint of medicine and what modern medicine can do for you.
Doctors Are Going To Take Real Good Care Of You
That's one of the reasons why when people get hurt, even if they don't think they're hurt badly at the beginning. I always tell them, get to the doctor because there's not a medical condition or illness out there that benefits from a delay in treatment and diagnosis. Even if you're hurt badly, even if they're telling you need surgery. I can tell you a message of hope. It's really likely that those doctors are going to take real good care of you and really be able to help you.
Honestly the older I get, I remember old people saying this when I was young. They would say "oh you know your health is the most important thing, you don't have anything if you don't have your health". Well that's really true. If you got hurt recently, you're living in the best time ever to be hurt. Because medical science is amazing but, there's another implication.
Focus On Getting Better
The other implication is, all the rest of it is secondary. I know that it's easy for me to say, but you should focus on getting better, focus on your medical care, focus on the people in your life that matter to you. Believe me, you will have an opportunity to have many jobs in your life. You will have many friends in your life. You will meet many loves in your life maybe. You will have many interests and joys, and things that bring you joy, and people that bring you joy and jobs that give you pride that you really like. And probably some that you hate but you only get one body.
So whenever anybody's hurt, and they ask me detailed questions about the case and this sort of stuff. I always tell them that my preference is that you never got hurt and if you did get hurt, you and I should both be focused on getting you better or getting you as close to better as we possibly can. The case will take care of itself or I'll take care of the case.
You Are Going To Be Just Fine
I guess my message to you is, I'm sorry that you got hurt. But it is very likely that things are going to be okay. Especially if you have a good relationship with a good lawyer who is really gonna fight for you. The chances are, you're going to be just fine. And if you need somebody to talk to, even if you don't have a case or even if you know you don't want to hire a lawyer and you have a question or you're worried about something and you want to give me a holler or shoot me an e-mail or you can post on the Facebook group. Maybe you just want to give me a call or email me at the office. I'm happy to help.
I'm in it to help people and that's why I make all these articles. I wrote a book and I have a CD and a DVD and all kinds of stuff that I provide to injured people to help them protect themselves if they've been hurt. I'm happy to talk to you even if you don't have a case. I hope that makes you feel a little bit better. Chances are you're going to be just fine. I don't mean 50/50 or slightly above 50/50. I mean it is very likely that the doctors are going to be able to take really good care of you and that things are going to work out.
