Growing up in Chicago, I was always rooting for the Blackhawks of yesteryear— when they were— well, certainly average at best.
As school kid, I no doubt was drawn to the fights and hard-hits– but looking back on things, I really think I was drawn to the fact that the Hawks were the under-dogs and they really had to fight hard to win their games.
There’s something not just exciting– but a sense of fulfillment and– what’s just right— when the little guy is able to overcome apparent deficits to take-on and take-down the big-guys.
Times have changed. While my beloved Blackhawks have morphed into one of the most skilled teams on the ice, I still have retained my love of rooting for the under-dogs.
As a lawyer, I can’t think of anything more rewarding– or important– than to represent an injured or disabled person in a case against a big corporation.
For too long I have observed powerful individuals and corporations try to create their own sets of rules that continually seek to insulate themselves when an error is made that significantly affects an individual or family.
In addition to continuing to write about issues impacting the primarily elderly population on the Nursing Homes Abuse Blog, I am really excited to begin work on a new project, Child Injury Law Blog.
The Child Injury Laws Blog, will in many ways mirror some of the issues that impact the elderly, yet will also focus on issues that impact the young— and very-young including:
- ATV Injuries
- Community News
- Dangerous Drugs
- Day Care
- Dog Attacks
- Foster Care
- Medical Malpractice
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Premises Liability
- Sexual Abuse
- Swimming Pools
