Why Should I Report My Injury?

Lawsuit News from OnderLaw

Some people feel guilty about reporting personal injuries, or in hiring an attorney to represent them. Here's why you shouldn't feel that way.

When tragic things happen, it's easy to sit back and accept that things sometimes go wrong. At times though, we do have to stand up for ourselves and for others, and to use our experiences to make a positive difference in the world.

When you are injured due to the negligence or poor business practices of a corporation, not only do you have a right to compensation, you also have an opportunity to be a change-maker. A personal injury attorney is a good idea for several reasons.

It's Not All About Money

It isn't all about money. The way we see it, there are four big reasons you should report an injury or death caused by faulty or poorly regulated products.

1) You can help to stop irresponsible manufacturers. Let's face it. Most corporations are run based solely on dollar signs. Significant legal losses and blows to their reputation as trustworthy and safe are often the only incentives we can use to get them to put people before profits.

2) You can help create a product recall. When you report your injury or a senseless death, not only can it result in stopping manufacturers from selling faulty or dangerous products, your lawsuit may prompt a recall so that products already in the hands of consumers can be fixed or replaced by safer ones.

3) You can help to change laws. Though we can't change the past, we can use the court system to get the attention of lawmakers.

4) You can save lives. Together we can put an end to the senseless deaths and suffering caused by unsafe products and irresponsible manufacturers.

People who face faulty corporations in court are heroes. Their willingness to fight for what's right results in positive changes in local and even federal laws and recalls of dangerous products, and because of them, companies are forced to be more responsible and lives are changed.

Because people have been willing to take a stand, new laws and regulations have been passed. Talcum powder, herbicides, medications, baby products, window blinds, and countless other products are now held to a higher standard or removed from shelves completely.

Help Us Help Everyone

Each time we take on a corporation, we're making sure that people come before profits. When you stand with us, you are helping to make that happen.
