Arizona Personal Injury Law - Are You The Suing Type?

Posted by Dev Sethi | Apr 15, 2014 | 0 Comments

I have been a personal injury lawyer in Arizona for 30 years. Every now and then when I talk to a potential client they will say something like, "I'm not sure if I want to go through with this. I'm not really the suing type."

I've been fortunate enough to represent more than 2,000 families in my 30 years as an attorney. I've gotten to know hundreds of other families through volunteering as a coach in the Tucson Soccer Academy and Angel Children's Charity. Of all these people, I've never met someone that is the "suing type."

We've all seen stories in the paper of people that appear to be filing bogus lawsuits. My firm would never take on a case like that and I think for the most part people like that are few and far between. My clients that are looking for a Tucson car accident attorney would much rather be healthy than calling me after having suffered a broken leg because someone ran a red light and hit them.

I think that some cheesy law firms give the public a bad feeling about hiring a lawyer because of their cheesy ads that are focused on nothing other than money for the client. If we represent you, we of course want to get you the most that we can and we have a track record of success that shows that. But when my firm takes on a new client, we are also concerned about your health and helping you get back to the best life you can live.

We don't represent people that are the suing type and you shouldn't worry about people thinking that of you. We do help honest, innocent victims of negligence that need us in their corner and while we never promise a result, we do guarantee that you will be proud of how we approach the handling of your case.
