One of the worst things anyone has to do in life is to contact a personal injury attorney. Something has gone terribly wrong. A serious accident, the death of a loved one, the unspeakable has occurred, and it wasn't their fault, or you would never be "doing your homework" on lawyers. For most of us, the events are overwhelming enough, and the thought of having to contact an attorney or file a lawsuit is downright distasteful. You're not the type of person who would go to a lawyer for just any little thing, but your world has been disrupted. You just want what's fair, but know deep in your heart that the insurance company is not going to do the "right thing." We know and understand that people often do not trust personal injury attorneys. Far too many law firms treat their clients like nameless accounts, not like the real people who have suffered unspeakable loss. Within our profession, there are those who deserve such a reputation.
At Onder Law, we do things differently. We want to earn your trust before asking to be your attorney. We pledge that we will listen with compassion, try our best to understand your horrific situation, and fight for you just as if you were a member of our own family. We take our job seriously, not only as lawyers and advocates, but understand our role as counsellor and friend. When you place your trust in us, we want you to feel confident that you have made the right choice, so the burden of worrying about your case can be lifted from your shoulders, and placed upon ours. As lawyers, counsellors and friends, we pledge to not disappoint.
The most frequent question we are asked is "Do I have a case?" But the reality is that this question is never asked enough. Approximately only 10% of all people and families who have suffered a serious injury or worse from an accident or product where negligence, typically resulting from a profit motive, existed actually use the legal system to seek justice. Every situation is different, but it is our duty to provide our best advice, and we do so without any cost and without any obligation to us to go beyond that initial consultation. So give us a call or send us an e-mail. If you can't come to us, we'll come to you. We're here to help.
From the way cases are handled to the way we treat our clients, we do our absolute best to walk with you through these most difficult times. We understand the frustration of running through the scenario over and over in your mind thinking, if only it could be done over again, perhaps things would have turned out differently, and perhaps this tragedy could have been avoided. As lawyers helping clients through some of their darkest hours, we only wish that there were a reset button that we could help them hit, and stop what has occurred.
The truth is that no personal injury lawyer can provide justice to someone who has experienced a severe injury or lost a loved one. What we would give to be able to that magical "reset" button and make it all right again! But as lawyers, all we can do is attempt to get "fair compensation," for an injury or loss for which all of the money in the world would never be "fair." While money will never explain why things happened the way they did, and will never make it right, its goal is to provide a foundation from which a recovery may be launched. It may pay for the extraordinary medical bills that have been incurred, or provide the money for caregivers to give family members the break they so desperately deserve. It may be used to customize a home and vehicle for those permanently disabled, can pay for the college education that a lost parent would otherwise have worked hard to provide, or can simply pay life's day-to-day bills.
The Pursuit of Justice, no matter how complex the case or how strenuous the effort, is the mission of Onder Law. We have built a strong reputation by successfully handling the most challenging cases involving catastrophic personal injury and death, complex medical issues, products liability, auto accidents, premises liability, and workers' compensation matters.
As someone going through this dreadful process, there is one thing that we firmly believe: that your personal injury attorney should never leave you in the dark. A personal injury law firm should always return phone calls and respond to e-mails. YOU are the one person who deserves to always know what is happening with your case. You have already been through too much, and we want to be the solution to your stress, not a cause of further frustration.
