Personal Injury Lawsuits and the Down Economy

I don’t have to tell you about all the problems that our sluggish economy is causing in Las aVegas and across the nation. In our region, the housing market is way down, unemployment is high, and many residents are leaving Las Vegas in search of greener pastures.

During these rough economic times, some people have expressed the following sentiment to me when they discover that I am a personal injury lawyer:

“It seems that people are more likely to hire a lawyer and file a lawsuit when the economy is weak. That’s because many people are experiencing financial difficulties, so they may see a settlement as another way to get money – and they may be more likely to file suit over a dispute than to let it pass or resolve it on their own.”

Here’s my opinion on that view: when you engage my services, it is my duty and responsibility to give you the most effective and vigorous representation that I can provide regardless of outside factors like your financial situation or the economy.

If you just got laid off from your job and then got injured in a car accident while driving home, I would provide you with the same level of service than if you had gotten promoted to your dream job. If you just lost your life savings at a Las Vegas casino and was then struck by a car while crossing the Strip, I would defend you just as enthusiastically as I would had you won the $100,000 Progressive jackpot while playing the slot machines. 

While I cannot speak for everyone who files a personal injury lawsuit, I can tell you that the quality of your experience as my client will not be affected by economic conditions at all. That is my promise to you.
