    The common view of a plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer is not flattering.   Most people see the PI lawyer as an “ambulance chasing” parasite on our economy and our society.  This image, perpetuated by those who oppose personal injury lawyers in court, prevails.  Who are those who oppose personal injury lawyers in court?  Insurance companies, pharmaceutical manufacturers, hospitals, product manufacturers, and doctors, to name a few.  There are plenty of resources available to generate the propaganda machine that feeds and perpetuates the adverse view of personal injury lawyers in our society.

    The fault is not all the big money, powerful interests.  There are, of course, plenty of personal injury lawyers who feed the flame and who lack regard for a calling higher than lining their own pockets.  But this group is a minority.  Most personal injury lawyers willing to take on America’s biggest and most powerful entities are devoted to more than their own profit.  These men and women are empowered by the realization that their work makes a difference, that by holding negligent (and worse) actors accountable for the harm they cause, no matter how rich or powerful the negligent actor is, the plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer helps make all of us safer.

    Congratulations to William Dillon, the Florida man who was recently awarded $1.35 million by the Florida legislature in a claims bill designed to compensate him.  It turns out William Dillon spent almost 30 years, that's three decades, in a Florida prison for a crime he did not commit.  The State of Florida wasted the best years of Mr. Dillon's life.  And for that, Mr. Dillon will receive $1.35 million (actually less than that because he will have to pay his team of lawyers their hard earned, and much deserved fees).  I congratulate Mr.
