Stories like this remind us that car accidents need no more than the blink
of an eye to change one's life in the worst possible way. It is something
we don't like to think about, but it's true.
As attorneys, we help clients file personal injury or wrongful death lawsuits
after car accidents. No legal outcome is ever guaranteed, but when these
lawsuits are successful, the outcome can be used to defray the costs of
lost wages, medical expenses and (in the case of fatal accidents) funeral
costs and loss of companionship. We see our mission as helping clients
seek a measure of justice in an effort to redress the wrongs done to them.
