Why We Have Personal Injury Law

When people find out I’m a personal injury lawyer, they often ask me why we have personal injury law at all. I understand. Personal injury cases have a bad reputation. People hear about claims that seem fraudulent, or wasteful, and they make a determination without accurate information.

Mistakes happen all the time. Say you start the dishwasher but forget to put soap in it first. Your mistake might frustrate you, but it won’t hurt anyone. 

In personal injury law, we deal with mistakes that cause a great deal of pain, such as car accidents, medical malpractice, dog attacks, dangerous drugs, and more. These accidents cost a lot more than people realize:

  • medical bills
  • lost wages
  • pain and suffering
  • physical therapy
  • and more

When someone else injures you at that level, it should never force you into bankruptcy.

What Personal Injury Law Can and Can’t Do

We know money won’t bring back your loved one or make up for the pain and suffering you’ve already experienced. Money won’t calm the emotional roller-coaster you’ve been on. But money pays for medical bills, lost wages from time off work, and the cost of long-term rehabilitation. It can also make your life a little easier as you heal from the traumatic injury.

Money might also restore a little sense of justice. When a negligent person causes injury to an innocent person, justice should be served in some way. We find a lot of clients need the peace of mind a personal injury claim can bring.

Lastly, personal injury attorneys hold people, companies, and medical professionals accountable. In ideal situations we prevent these incidents from happening again.

Personal Injury Lawyer for Your Needs

If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident caused by the negligence of someone else, whether it be an individual or a company, you should seek legal counsel. An experienced attorney will investigate every little detail of your case, find the liability, and help you get compensation.

That’s why we’re in this business. We want to help people the best way we know how. We can’t bring back your loved one or take back the pain and suffering you and your family have been through, but we can take away as much financial pain as possible and make life easier for you.
