Concerns about Hiring an
Injury Attorney For Malpractice

The most common concern we hear from prospective personal injury clients is, “I don’t want to be like one of those people who sue.” There is such a stigma in our culture against injury “lawsuits” from the media, including TV shows, movies and magazines, that there is a “conventional wisdom” that there are too many frivolous injury lawsuits and that everyone who seeks accountability for the negligence of others is just out to “hit the lottery” and “jackpot justice.” We have all heard them, but they are not all true. Yes, there are some examples of unusual personal injury cases like the McDonald’s coffee case, but they are the rare exception.

The vast majority of people who talk to injury lawyers are just like you – people who find themselves in the middle of life changing circumstances because of no fault of their own and need help. Your bills may be piling up, you may have lost the main source of income for your family and you are not sure how you are going to make it. You may have a child that was injured at birth and now you wonder how you are going to pay for all the needs your child will have the rest of their life. If we cannot help you, we will tell you why or refer you to an injury attorney who can. Please call and get the help you and your family need now.

Let Baker & Gilchrist lead you through the law.
