Many folks, especially the injured people we’ve represented, realize that personal injury attorneys can help them recover financially and get on with their lives. But even our clients, much less the general public, don’t understand how we’ve made the world safer for all of us, so that accidents like theirs are far less likely.
How is this so? Because the threat of personal injury lawsuits has forced product manufacturers and service providers the world over to consider the safety of what they sell the public. From car airbags to ground-fault electrical outlets, football helmets to home appliances, personal injury lawsuits have resulted in products and services that are exponentially safer than their predecessors were decades ago.
