Advocates for Safety Deserve Praise


Safety should always come first in the workplace but yet day after day we read about workers being severely injured or killed at work. The victim could be a worker from any profession, a carpenter, steel worker, or even office worker.

More often than not that perception spills over into negative perceptions of personal injury attorneys. They’re called ambulance chasers by some. The connection people fail to make is that without personal injury attorneys, large penalties in the form of jury verdicts in the millions, companies would have no incentive to make a safer workplace.

So the next time you read or hear about a $10 million or $20 million injury verdict, think about the company that may have been negligent about workers’ safety, and not about that PI attorney, who rightfully should be commended not dissimilar to a physician who just saved the life of someone.
