Let’s face it- injury lawyers have a bad name, in part, because of a lot of advertising done in poor taste. This is unfortunate, because many personal injury lawyers are respectable, honest professionals who do their best to help those affected by tragedy.
When someone is injured or killed because of the negligence of another, the surviving family has to deal not only with the stress of the injury or loss, but also with lost income, medical bills and more. A trustworthy lawyer can step in during such a difficult time and lighten the load by providing guidance and assistance so the family can focus on healing and the things that really matter.
Our lawyers understand there are many emotions to deal with after a tragedy. Often times, receiving money because you are injured or have lost a family member can feel “dirty” or unethical. Of course, monetary compensation can never heal injuries or replace those taken too soon, but it can help with the very real financial demands, especially if you are injured and can’t work or if medical bills have mounted. And further, it’s the only thing our civil justice system has to compensate victims. We know it is a poor remedy but, unfortunately, it is the only one.
Helping those in a time when they truly need support is some of the most gratifying work we do. We are grateful for the confidence and trust our personal injury clients have shown in us throughout the years. Our lawyers hope you don’t let distasteful advertising keep you from getting assistance when you need it the most. Some injury lawyers do truly want to help.
