The great Roman politician Cicero said, “The safety of the people shall be the highest law.” As an elected councillor for my district, I always try to keep these words in mind. Recently, I met a frail old lady whose hip was broken after she was hit by a car on a pedestrian crossing. She could not afford a hip replacement and felt that she would have to accept it.
I meet a lot of people who aren't aware of their rights when accidents occur. I advise them to consult an accident and personal injury lawyer as they often have a good case for compensation. I believe that Cicero would certainly approve of laws which allow people to pay medical bills and survive when they cannot work. In this blog, I will outline some ways that lawyers can help if you have an accident. I hope it is useful.
