Negligence is a concept that’s involved in all of our personal injury cases. A lot of times, the person who injured our client will say, “Well, I didn’t mean to do.”
It doesn’t matter if the defendant meant intentionally to hurt you. What matters is that they did hurt you and they did it perhaps not because they meant to, but because they were negligent. And in those cases, what we want to do is show that if the person had been paying better attention or had followed the law, that they wouldn’t have injured our client. It doesn’t matter if the defendant intended to hurt you, it matters that the defendant did hurt you. And even if it was just the slightest amount of negligence, we can still get you a full recovery.
Nobody wants to be injured by somebody else. Nobody wakes up in the morning and says, “Gee, I’d like to be a plaintiff in a lawsuit today.” But what’s important is that insurance companies know that we’re not afraid to sue on behalf of our clients.
You’re not a number at The Claiborne Firm. You’re somebody that we know on a first-name basis and talk to regularly, someone that we care about. At a high-volume firm, clients are treated like numbers. At The Claiborne Firm, they’re treated like family.
