Hello, I’m Michael Grossman.
I've practiced law in Texas for the past 30 years. During that time, I came to realize most people misunderstand how the law works when a crash kills or severely injures someone. The average person rightly feels a lot of frustration towards the law in general, and lawyers in particular. I can't say that I blame them. Most attorneys behave like they're in a medieval guild, carefully guarding the secrets of their craft, whereas the law belongs to each and every person in this great country. Think of this blog as peeling back the curtain on how the law works and the legal concerns that arise after a serious accident.
Here's a few ground rules for how this blog works:
- I don't write about these crashes to advertise or solicit business. My firm does well enough that it affords me the time to engage in educational outreach activities like this.
- After some crash posts, I choose to comment on some of legal issues that typically arise in similar crashes. This isn't legal advice. Please don't treat it as such. Instead, my goal is to get people thinking about aspects of serious crashes that most people would never consider, because they might see one of these crashes in a lifetime, whereas I've seen thousands over the last 3 decades.
- If you don't want your loved one's crash on the blog, leave me a comment and I'll take it down. Everyone reacts differently to a catastrophic crash. Some appreciate my posts as a small memorial to their loved one, many people believe that what I write gives them a new perspective on events, while others feel that any printed word about their loved one is an intrusion. The goal of this blog isn't to tick you off or cause more pain in a difficult time.
It's my hope that everyone learns a bit more about how the law works. If you're curious about who I am, when I get time away from the office, I'm usually with my wife and 3 kids or sport fishing one of the many of the fabulous lakes here in Texas.
