Why We Do What We Do
Why Our Attorneys & Staff Have Passion for Working at a Personal Injury Law Firm
For decades many people have had negative reactions to personal injury law firms. They may think our goal is to make money or punish those who make mistakes. However, accident victims and their families know the real reason we handle personal injury claims.
A popular quote is, “You never know what you have until you don’t have it anymore.” Most of us take walking, driving, daily activities, and working for granted. We even complain about them. But ask any accident victim who was seriously injured in an accident, and they’ll tell you that they’d give anything to have their old lives back again.
At our law firm, helping our clients is what makes our jobs worthwhile. We work hard to give our clients a voice in the legal system and get the compensation they need to make ends meet. They’ve lost so much, but we’re able to help them look toward the future.
A past client of ours shared this recently on our Facebook fan page:
- “If it wasn’t for my Mom setting up an appointment with you guys, our lives would be so different right now. Just call a lawyer. There is so much that you don’t think about when something like an accident happens. Until I went through all the legal stuff and the lifetime thoughts of what could happen or not happen in the future – I was clueless until I went through all of that. I’m thankful I had the right people on my side.”
Another client who was injured in a car accident shared this with us:
- “I was in a state of panic when this happened. My investigator came and did what he had to do. I felt better immediately. I didn’t have to worry. It was bad enough I was in pain. I didn’t have to deal with phone calls, and all of my questions were answered. I was very happy with how Edgar Snyder & Associates handled everything. My attorneys were polite, respectful, understanding, and patient. I’m now able to prepare for my future since I don’t know how I will be able to work.”
We hear these comments and read these types of messages every day – this is why we do what we do.
Spreading Awareness About the Dangers of Drunk Driving and Texting While Driving
We also are committed to reducing the number of drunk driving accidents and accidents caused by texting while driving (and other forms of distracted driving). Edgar Snyder & Associates supports public service announcements and sponsors a variety of programs designed to prevent drunk driving and texting while driving. One example is the Edgar Snyder Save A Life Tour that travels to high schools throughout western Pennsylvania.
One of our young Facebook fans thanked us for bringing the Edgar Snyder Save A Life Tour to her school:
- “Thank you so much for coming to Apollo-Ridge High School today. What you have shown us today will definitely stay in my memory forever.”
Giving Back to the Community
We help people injured in accidents, workers hurt on the job, and those who are disabled and can’t work, so we support various organizations in the community that have a passion for helping people who are hurt or suffer with disabilities.
Variety, the Children’s Charity of Pittsburgh, provides adaptive bicycles to children who have special needs. Edgar Snyder & Associates helped to provide these specially designed bikes for local kids. Variety recently sent us this message:
- “One of our clients is 8 years old and has cerebral palsy. She can now ride bikes with her twin sister, because Variety provided her with an adaptive bike. This wouldn’t be possible without you. Thank you.”
Edgar Snyder & Associates – Helping Clients When They Need it Most
“The best part of this job is the opportunity to help people. People look to us to do more than just litigate. Often, it’s the little things that make a difference with clients – from helping them to get their medical bills in order to just being someone who can listen to them when they need a sounding board. For our clients, their accident is THE most important thing going on in their lives. We are called ‘counsel’ for a reason, because our goal is to not just to be a client’s legal representation, but also their ‘counselor’.”
This quote from one of our attorneys explains it best. At our law firm, we’re not ambulance chasers. Our staff members are people who care about what they do. We witness our clients’ struggles firsthand. We rely on our experience and compassion to help improve the lives of others.
