You’ve likely heard the jokes about “ambulance chaser” lawyers and their “you can sue anybody for anything” mentalities, but the truth is, personal injury attorneys — at least the good ones — really do have our clients’ best interests in mind. You won’t see Grover Law attorneys chasing down any ambulances, but here’s what you will see us doing.
Personal Injury Attorneys are the Trusty Slingshot in the Battle of David vs. Goliath
Corporations have the benefit of corporate lawyers behind them, and going up against one can be daunting without the right help. If you’ve been wronged by a company, you need someone who knows the ins and outs of business and civil law to ensure issues are resolved and that you’re fairly compensated for losses (monetary, physical and mental).
Personal Injury Attorneys Lead the Fight for Better Laws and Regulations
Many of the laws protecting consumers were created in direct response to negligent behavior that led to consumer harm. By taking these cases to court and proving negligence, personal injury attorneys bring attention to important issues.
Take for example 2013’s ruling in favor of James E. McCutchen against U.S. Airways. Mr. McCutchen had won a personal injury suit and received compensation for injuries but was in turn sued by his employer’s health plan for reimbursement for health costs they paid in relation to those injuries. Thanks to the the original civil suits, the Supreme Court had the opportunity to rule on how much reimbursement a health plan is entitled to after a consumer receives a personal injury settlement.
Personal Injury Attorneys Stimulate Corporate Responsibility
Knowing that there are attorneys out there to protect customers from corporate negligence, companies tend toward making consumer safety and security a top priority.
Consider vehicle recalls for instance. A car company can’t simply ignore an issue with their vehicles that could jeopardize driver safety. Even though their profits might take a hit by issuing a recall, the amount of money they would have to spend to defend or settle one or multiple personal injury lawsuits certainly makes the recall look more appealing.
In a perfect world, consumer safety would always be top priority, but the existence of personal injury attorneys adds a solid layer of insurance.
