When Bad Things Happen to Good People
Personal Injury Lawyer Austin
If you are in need of a personal injury lawyer, Mundy Law Firm serving Austin, Georgetown, Round Rock and San Marcos can help.
Our parents teach us to accept responsibility when we break something or hurt someone and do what we can to make the situation right. However, today’s corporate executives frequently have very different morals. Only rarely will a company have a corporate policy of accepting responsibility when they harm a person. Much more often, corporations deny responsibility and will use their unlimited budgets and massive insurance policies to hire armies of corporate lawyers and accountants to fight those who they harm. They now pay their lawyers up to a $1,000/hour, and cry a shrill note to politicians to limit their financial responsibility to those they harm.
The financial toll of a significant injury or wrongful death can be just as devastating, and even contribute to, the emotional impact on a victim. When you have been injured or lost a loved one due to wrongful conduct, negligence or defective product of another person or company, you should consider having a lawyer on your side to seek financial reparations for the damage done to you. When you fail to pursue a case against those who have injured you or a family member, you effectively punish yourself. Financial compensation can very well save you from years of future deprivation, and it relieve the financial burden imposed on you and your family that you were forced to endure through no fault of your own. Contact our Austin practice today to schedule a consultation with a personal injury lawyer.
You Can Help Others
Our justice system very rarely sends anyone to prison for injuring another through a defective product or wrongful conduct.
As imperfect as our legal system may be, where the wrongful conduct causes great harm, justice and accountability may only be had through imposing responsibility for monetary damages.
Imposing financial responsibility in one case can change conduct to the benefit of all in a community.
Some examples of positive changes caused by holding companies responsible and accountable for their actions include equipping cars with seatbelts and airbags, designing safer baby cribs which do not allow babies’ heads to become trapped in the slats, limiting the discharge of toxic materials into our air and water, and labeling of products to reveal potentially hazardous ingredients.
For those who are seriously injured by the wrongful conduct of another, bringing a case usually is the only way to hold the wrongdoer responsible and hopefully prevent the bad conduct in the future.
Citizens share a responsibility not just to seek compensation for themselves, but also seek justice and accountability for loved ones, our coworkers, and our community when harm and injustice occur.
Severely injured citizens endure the heavy burden of facing the reality of permanent impairment, limited ability to support themselves and their families, or the worst cases death.
Pursuing accountability and responsibility of the culpable person, product, or company helps relieve the financial burden on a family. Also less known is the fact that the recovery by the injured party goes to repay health insurance benefits expended in caring for the injured party. So, the culpable party bears the responsibility for medical care and financial support of the injured person rather than their own health insurance company.
