In spite of everything, I still believe people are really good at heart.– Anne Frank
Tis’ the season of thanksgiving and ‘finding silver linings’ – even in the personal injury realm. As personal injury attorneys, it can be difficult to see the proverbial light when our offices fill with stories of pain every single day. But when we look for the positive, it’s not very difficult to find evidence of human goodness.
We believe Anne Frank got it right. Read below as we share evidence that ‘in spite of everything, people are really good at heart,’ and why good can come out of a PI accident or tragic event.
Let’s examine those who may be affected by personal injury, including:
Those who take the promise ‘till death do we part’ literally are numerous. We see this in the soft way they deal with their injured loved one, in their patient voices that serve to soothe the pain. The way relatives rally after a tragedy occurs is a near-universal response.
We’ve seen previously estranged family members immediately come together for those who have been hurt; we’ve witnessed the selflessness that comes with assuming a caregiver role.
The Public (as a Whole) –
When a personal injury occurs and the perpetrator is punished, that injury is often kept from occurring again. This is no small victory. Imagine if no one ever sued for slipping on sodden floors that were supposed to be dried?
Countless people would fall and break bones. Sometimes a personal injury suit brings to light an error that needs to be corrected before others are affected as well.
The Law Team –
Those who thrive professionally in the personal injury law sector can be personally and financially fulfilled. It’s not a question of either/or. Coleman Law Group founder Constance Coleman, for example, is inspired by her brother, who passed away as a result of a motorcycle accident.
She has pledged to help others who have been wrongly injured, and this is how she honors his memory. Many of us have been touched in some way by tragedies big and small. Taking care of each other helps soothe the ache of that loved one’s absence.
The Victim –
No one wants to experience an accident. The bodily harm that can result can drastically change a person’s life. For those who survive, a new outlook is possible. These people know firsthand that life is precious and that it can change at any instant.
Having that sort of mindset can make one less likely to spend their days wasting any time. They’re the ones who advise the rest of us: Tell that person you love her/him. Take that trip to Europe you’ve always said you’ll take. The victim will tell you that at any moment, you may run out of chances.
The Coleman Law Group is proud to help victims of personal injury and their families find closure. Though we don’t wish a tragic event on anyone, we do recognize the optimistic elements that can happen because of them. And for that, we are thankful – not just this November, but always.

For a personal injury attorney to see only the tragic circumstance would be to miss the positive way many people deal with the aftermath.
