Has anybody accused you of trying to get something for nothing?

That’s the kind of thing that would make you feel guilty about whatever you were doing, isn’t it?

My name is Bob Snyder and I’m a personal injury lawyer. I’m going to discuss with you why you should never feel like you’re trying to get something for nothing when you seek damages as a result of having been injured.

I’m here at the Snyder Law Group in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. We serve Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I’d like to take a minute to talk to you about eliminating any feelings of guilt that you might have about bringing a personal injury claim after you’ve been injured, whether it’s from a slip and fall, a motor vehicle case, or medical negligence. Keep in mind, there’s no such thing as an accident. It’s usually, if you get down to the real facts, a situation where somebody has been careless or negligent or, worse than that, they’ve been reckless and they’ve seen a high likelihood of harm occurring and they decided to go ahead. Even worse than that, some people intentionally injure others.

I will never use the word “accident” in a courtroom. The same thing takes place with the use of the word “award”. Injured people do not get awards. What they get, as a result of great losses that they’ve suffered in the form of physical harm and pain and loss of the ability to do their normal daily activities, and loss of earnings or earning capacity, are things that could follow them for the rest of their lives. The wrongdoer is the person who has to be held responsible for paying a debt. The jury in these cases is to make an assessment as to how big the debt is: to take, at one time, an opportunity to see all that you’ve been through, all that you are going through, and all that you are going to continue to go through for the rest of your life as a result of another person’s wrongful activity.

Thanks for stopping for a minute and taking this opportunity.

I hope this information was of help or benefit to you. I’m here and you can call me at 610-265-8050.
