Everyone loathes personal injury lawyers. That is, until they need one.
Personal injury lawyers have been vilified as parasitic “ambulance chasers” by way of a decades-long public relations campaign funded by big business, including profit-seeking insurance companies resistant to paying legitimate claims and large corporations seeking to insulate themselves from liability for injuries they inflict on the public. Adding insult to injury, politicians beholden to these special interest groups ensure their grip on office through well-funded campaigns underwritten by big business.
Through an unrelenting propaganda campaign regarding the “evils” of personal injury lawyers, big business is effectively eroding the constitutional protections afforded the American people to seek redress of grievance for life-changing injuries they suffer. Oftentimes, big businesses who avoid liability through damages caps and other mechanisms that avoid making persons “whole,” transfer the burdensome tab of ongoing medical care onto the taxpayers in the form of additional stress to social programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security Disability.
Gone are the days where obvious liability for personal injuries led to obvious recovery for the injured person. Today, the road to monetary recovery for personal injuries is crooked, narrow, and covered with speed bumps and potholes. The road to successful recovery requires experienced and competent counsel knowledgeable in the many twists and turns of the litigation road.
Personal injury cases are always traumatic. A personal injury can be devastating psychologically and financially, especially to families that may incur exorbitant medical bills and lose income as a result of their injury. Whether the injury is minor or severe, the victim suffers some level of economic loss and emotional distress beyond the actual injury.
