So, the point is that we should have our personal injury attorney/lawyer if we are financially strong enough to afford one. Now, for those who don’t know what does personal injury attorney do so, here is a little introduction.

so, if I keep going on telling you the benefits, I can write whole day but the main point here is to tell you that it is really important to have an injury lawyer.
Here is the some of the most famous cases which involving injury lawyers.
Stella Liebeck v. McDonald’s
This is one of the more famous personal injury cases of the century. It was labeled as a frivolous lawsuit by some, but this single lawsuit is what forced companies to start labeling their hot products to avoid burning their customers – or at least to avoid being held responsible for burns.
Ms. Liebeck suffered from third-degree burns on her inner thighs and groin area – so severe that she needed skin grafts to recover – after she spilled a hot coffee in her lap. McDonald’s knew their coffee was too hot, and the company’s own policy states that coffee must be kept at 185 degrees. Liebeck was not the first to be burned by the coffee served up at this fast-food chain. In fact, more than 700 others reported that they had been burned by McDonald’s coffee in the last decade.
After McDonald’s tried to scoff away the lawsuit, they ended up offering a settlement of $20,000 to the plaintiff. However, the case eventually went to trial where a jury awarded Liebeck $2.7 million.
Anderson v. Cryovac, Inc.
this was a lawsuit that was brought against multiple companies for contaminating their groundwater. It became the basis for a book, A Civil Action, which was later turned into a movie where John Travolta played the personal injury attorney fighting for his clients.
These companies, all subsidiaries of W.R. Grace, were brought to trial because they greedily dumped so many toxic chemicals into the ground, it caused cancer clusters – giving several children leukemia and costing numerous lives. This lawsuit ended with punitive and compensatory damages, and is by far one of the more famous lawsuits brought against a company for their selfish actions.
While it has the same name, it is a different Anderson that represented this lawsuit, though it was also made famous by a movie, Erin Brockovich. As another toxic tort case, this case involved the residents of Hinkley, California, where they went up against one of the biggest, most powerful companies in the world. They claimed that the company had polluted their groundwater, causing clusters of cancer in adult and children, ultimately claiming numerous lives. This too resulted in punitive and compensatory damages, and is a personal injury lawsuit that helped prevent future contaminations by showing companies what will occur if they fail to follow proper disposal and environmental practices.
So, at the end my final opinion is that one should have a personal injury attorney. Because having a right person by your side not only leads to a happy life but a satisfying life.
