Ward & Ward Personal Injury Lawyers Protect Client Privacy
I was recently approached by a colleague who asked: Why Ward & Ward Personal Injury Lawyers Protect Client Privacy?
Ward & Ward Law Firm is a plaintiff’s personal injury law firm that operates at the behest of private citizens who have been injured in car, motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian, and semi-tractor-trailer or 18 – wheeler trucking accidents. We feel that our clients’ interests are best served by exercising discretion thereby honoring their trust with confidentiality. Ward & Ward Personal Injury Lawyers protect our clients’ privacy.
A million dollar settlement or jury award can alter the behavior of friends and family
A quiet settlement or jury award permits our clients to pick up the pieces of their lives after a severe accident and move on privately. We advise our clients to refrain from telling friends or family when a settlement or award for economic, non-economic losses or punitive damages has been made. Well-meaning people can inadvertently exert enormous pressure on individuals to ‘share the wealth.’ They may not understand that our clients will use their settlement or award to protect a future that may include permanent disabilities.
The Confidentiality Clause
Settlements by prominent corporations may contain a clause within the agreement that prevents the claimants from discussing any negotiations and dollars received with anyone, exempting their attorney and their accountant. But why?
Settlements often are not an admission of guilt by the defendant(s), but rather the determination has been made that it would be in neither party’s mutual best interest to continue with further litigation.
We respect the privacy of our personal injury clients.
Ward & Ward Law Firm and the personal injury lawyers in Indianapolis, IN will never broadcast our clients’ identities or injuries in conjunction with settlement or jury awards to enhance the prestige of the firm. We respect the privacy of each and every client. If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident with traumatic injury, call Charlie Ward today at 317-639-9501 for a free analysis of your case.
