Personal Injury Litigation in Springfield, MO
At the Piatchek Law Firm, our attorneys help those who have been seriously injured. We understand that when you suffer a serious injury, your life will probably never be the same again. Your life and your whole world has changed forever. Unfortunately for many who have sustained significant injuries, things cannot simply go back to how they were before the injury. Many times, there is nothing that can necessarily “make you whole” again or “put things back the way they were.”
Sometimes, however, there is one thing that can help – a very crude and imperfect substitute for what you really want, which is to get your old life back – and that one thing is money. It really boggles the mind when you think about it. How do you put a price on loss of life, loss of limb, loss of dignity? What amount of money could possibly account for your loss? Many times, this strange and troubling question is exactly what will have to be decided by a judge or jury.
Before an injury, some people may consider themselves not “the suing type” and view those who file lawsuits as “part of the problem” in our country. Of course, things are different when it is you or your loved one who sustains an injury. You know that your injuries are real, and your suffering is real. In fact, your injury is the most significant thing going on in your life. Compensation is extremely important. You will want an experienced attorney, someone who can help make your life the best it can be given the circumstances. You will need an attorney who will do their very best to help right the wrong that has occurred.
