Study Identifies Cost and Confusion as Barriers to Getting Needed Legal Help
57 Million Americans Have Legal Issues PR Newswire DALLAS, Nov. 27, 2012 DALLAS, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -
A new nationwide study released today by LegalShield shows that working Americans and their families face a broad array of legal issues daily but only infrequently seek out help due to the cost, confusion and hassle of dealing with the legal system. Even for serious legal events such as divorce, IRS audits, DWI/DUI arrests, real estate purchase, identity theft, or the death of a spouse without a will, an alarming number of Americans are forgoing the legal help they need to protect themselves and their families.
The survey shows 57 million of full-time working Americans experienced at least one significant legal event in the past 12 months, but only 60 percent of those who experienced such an event actually sought out the services of a lawyer to help them. The rest said they were “hesitant” or “dread” calling a lawyer because they are too hard to find, cost too much and are “difficult” and “intimidating” to work with. “Our research shows what weâ€™ve known intuitively for a long time â€“ many Americans donâ€™t believe they can get the legal help they need to protect themselves and their families,” said Rip Mason, CEO of LegalShield. “Too many people believe they have to go at it alone and hope for the best when it comes to dealing with all but the most serious legal issues.
