There are times when a lawsuit is the appropriate and necessary way to get what you are legally entitled to. There are times when a lawsuit is not warranted. American jurisprudence, the consumer, and all of society have benefited immeasurably from personal injury lawsuits. There is no better way to hold negligent people accountable for causing people harm than by collecting compensation for it. The seat belts in cars, railroad crossing signals, back-up warnings on trucks, warning labels, stop mechanisms on automatic garage doors, cigarette-free zones, removal of asbestos from schools, compensation for an injury, lost wages or bills paid, and countless other ways to protect you and your family are protections put in place because an individual and their attorney fought and did not give up.
