Medical Malpractice Lawyer

George Patterson

For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to help people.

Ever since middle school, I wanted to be a lawyer. When I was 13, I came home and found my mother using crutches and wearing a neck brace. She fell carrying a bag of mulch at Hechinger’s when her feet became caught in metal strapping that was used to hold mulch bags on pallets. Weeks later she had a neck fusion and a back surgery. One careless mistake by a store forever changed her life. The mulch industry no longer uses metal straps with shipping pallets.

In college I majored in economics and philosophy. Philosophy for me is about understanding why something is right or wrong. While, economics is the force that makes companies constantly improve their products and practices. Personal injury lawyers put the costs of bad conduct on the balance sheets of those responsible. If bad conduct costs more, you will get less of it.I have a sincere belief that my work plays a part in improving the lives of my clients while inspiring people and companies to make changes for the better. Perhaps my mother’s lawyer was just trying to help her with her injuries but he also inspired an industry to make a change that has spared countless people from similar injuries.Although, you want a lawyer who cares about you and the dignified pursuit of your case you want to know that your lawyer has the skill and experience to succeed.
