Personal Injury Cases: Truth vs. Fact

by Staff Blogger | November 9th, 2016

No matter what side of the political spectrum you find yourself, we can all agree that far too often throughout this recent presidential election, the line between fact and truth has often been blurred. Those two words may seem synonymous, but they are actually very different things.

A fact is defined as “a thing that is indisputably the case.” Truth is defined as “a fact or belief accepted as true.” In personal injury law, facts are paramount in proving or disproving a claim. Truths are not. For example, proving fault in a car accident case requires compiling and presenting facts or evidence from the scene and/or accident report. These facts are irrefutable and therefore establish fault.

Truth is something entirely different. For example, we believe the insurance company should pay accident victims what they deserve every time, without exception. Although pretty much all accident victims would agree with us, it’s only a belief. Simply presenting that belief to a judge will do little to get our clients maximum compensation for their injuries. It requires hard work, determination, and an unfaltering resolve to turn that belief into a reality, and that’s what we do every single day at Ponce Law.

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, we believe you deserve more for your injury claim. Give our experienced Nashville car accident attorneys a call for a free consultation and let us fight to make that belief a reality.
