As a young woman, I have always felt strongly that my mother’s greatest strength – her tenacity in the face of adversity – was her greatest asset. As an attorney, she repeatedly told me how much she valued her “gratitude” and “patience”. During those times I felt myself unable to manage my emotions. Although my mother has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis medications, she still often considered herself “patient” – a quality that I found comforting.
Recently, I had an occasion to convey this to my mother. She responded by telling me about a recent conversation she’d had with an acquaintance who had told her that he believed that the law was meant to help people “regret their choices”. As my mind began to race about the different things a law Career could do for someone like my mother, I couldn’t help but think back to the early years of my mother’s life when she consistently told me that she was content “whenever” anything happened.
When asked if she considered herself “wise” or “wise for her times”, my mother responded that she always thought “wise”. In my mother’s case, that meant living each and every day knowing that life would bring challenges, but that she had the strength and character to persevere. She was a “person of principle” – and whatever happens, she would deal with it head-on, no matter the circumstances. She told me that she felt it was important to “live life so you can better serve others” – a powerful statement, and one that applies to anyone with a spirit of service and compassion.
That was then and this is now. Rudy Indiana is a personal injury lawyer. She is a product of a powerful and inspirational mother who made the decision early in her life to follow her heart. The experience she shared with me today about her mother’s view of life reminds me that sometimes our paths can get blocked due to others’ preconceived ideas of what should be accepted as truth. Although I believe my mom is a very good teacher, I have learned that she would not have given her own advice on such a personal and private topic as personal injury.
The Rudies family has set aside funds to pay their legal fees and will be relying on public donations to meet their obligations. This is indeed unfortunate because their daughter’s story is an ideal case study on what not to do when facing a personal injury lawsuit. Although they met with obstacles in the road, they never gave up and despite seemingly overwhelming odds, fought back and earned a victory for themselves and their daughter. This is one story that I will always cherish and will try to tell others in order to help them avoid similar mistakes.
I am glad that my parents did not let fear of public rejection stop them from fighting for justice for my sister. Although they could not talk openly about the case, my mom wrote every detail of the legal battle to my father. In fact, she included many emails that showed how much she adored my father and missed him. In addition, my father was able to get confirmation from many important witnesses that Rudy Indiana was not telling the truth about his medical condition. He has since taken full control of the case and moved it to a different court, where he is confident that the dismissal of his personal injury lawsuit will occur.
As unbelievable as it may seem, but true, my grandmother never filed for bankruptcy because she knew that it would hurt my dad more if she was declared bankrupt. She also made sure that the settlement offer they were going to accept was fair and in good taste of both parties. When it was all said and done, my grandmother was extremely happy and grateful that Rudy and her son had finally found the strength to fight against this injustice. All she ever wanted was to win for her family and her daughter was able to help achieve that goal.
The truth is that one does not really need a personal injury lawyer to win his/her case. Even if you have been a victim of negligence in the past, it is never too late to file a personal injury claim. Remember that this is not just about financial issues but it is also an issue of justice. If you are willing to pursue your case, the personal injury lawyers of today will do their best to help you obtain what you rightfully deserve. Do not let this opportunity slip by you. Get your life back on track and start working on your future today.
