Your Accident Should Not Be Just A Statistic – Talk to an Injury Attorney

By Andrew M. Rockman

An accident today, whether in an auto, from a bad product, or dangerous conditions on someone’s property, get played out on a different stage from not too many years in the past. Changes in laws threaten the injured person and his or her injury attorney with becoming a category or statistic, rather than the individual human being you are, with your story, your life and your needs.

The art of representation means identifying your individuality and what your diagnosis and your injury means, and will mean to you, and sometimes, to your loved ones. Legislation and insurance policies try to categorize and depersonalize. Your injury attorney needs to learn who you are so that it is the “you” in you that is presented and appreciated.

In part, the doctor who is to help present and describe what happened to you, has to be made aware, you are not a diagnosis, but rather a unique person with that diagnosis and its impact on the “you” in you. This is part of the art of having you and your case understood for what it means to you, with the explanation of needed witnesses, who know you are not a category, but a person.

That is who you want representing you, above being just a case, a statistic, or a “typical diagnosis”. You are not typical. You are you and you should seek an injury attorney who gets that, so that those who are responsible for compensating you get that.
