Many attorneys advertise that they are personal injury attorneys representing “accident” victims. This is not how we describe ourselves, and we would never refer to people injured in a tragic auto wreck, workplace catastrophe, or other situation as “accident” victims. Here at the Hart Law Firm, we do not believe in “accidents.” “Accident” suggests that nothing was done wrong. However, this is far from what really goes on when an individual’s or business’ negligence causes others to suffer serious injuries or death.
Why We Believe Victims Injuries Are Caused by Negligence and Not an “Accident”
We believe that nearly all injuries can be avoided if all parties follow safety rules. We all have an implied contract with those around us that we will follow safety rules when we drive our vehicles, run our businesses, go to work, and engage in other activities. We expect that of ourselves and others.
Our extensive experience shows that when clients are injured, the other driver, co-employees, or the employer violated one or more of these rules. When these vital rules are ignored, discounted, and violated people get hurt or killed. It’s not just “an accident.” Other drivers, co-employees, people on the highway, first responders, people who stop and give first aid, our parents, children and even ourselves are among those who can suffer catastrophic injuries or death when people and corporations violate safety rules.
When our clients retain us, we conduct an extensive investigation into the actions that led to their injuries. Here are just some of avenues of research we conduct to discover safety violations:
- Industry standards
- Local ordinances
- State laws
- Federal laws and regulations
- Company safety policies and rules
In addition, we use our years of experience representing our clients and just plain common sense to discover the safety rules that MUST be followed. Oftentimes we find that several safety rule violations caused the injury or death.
It is our philosophy that safety is a choice and that the safest choice must be taken. Many negligent parties intentionally choose to ignore safety rules while others carelessly violate them. Then they try to duck their responsibility by claiming that “it was just an accident” or “I didn’t mean to… ” instead of accepting responsibility for their actions. Regardless, the results are the same. If safety rules are violated intentionally or through carelessness, people can be hurt or killed. That’s why we don’t believe in or use the term “accident.”
