We Don't Just Win Cases, We Create Change
At Power Rogers & Smith, L.L.P., we believe in our commitment to our clients as well as our community. When someone suffers an injury, the consequences can affect numerous people such as their spouse, children, other family members, colleagues and more.
Our Chicago personal injury attorneys win cases. We have done it countless times in the past and it helps the victims of incidents and their families find justice as well as closure. This isn’t all we do, though. While winning compensation for our clients is important, we believe that just as important is our ability to create change.
If wrongdoers are not held accountable for their actions, negligent parties will not be inclined to change and regulating authorities may not take any kind of action. By taking legal action, we are forcing others to rectify the way things are done. For instance, one of our highly public cases resulted in federal regulators mandating hospital personnel to provide care to anyone who is within their reach. The lawsuit forced hospitals to adopt policies that help others when they are in need of medication attention.
In another case in which six children were wrongfully killed, we took legal action that led to investigations and the conviction of 74 people who were wrongfully obtaining drivers licenses. This also led to the retesting of 2,000 truck drivers to ensure they actually met the proper criteria. Our legal action not only gained justified compensation for the family who lost its loved ones, it helped make the roads safer for all other drivers.
Our firm is not just about a financial result. Of course, compensation can provide for necessary medical care or lost earnings after an injury or a death, we are also passionate about being advocates for change and making sure these types of accidents don’t happen to anyone else.
