Over the past few weeks, I, like most Americans, have been following with interest the story of the Tucson shooting. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot during a townhall meeting outside a Safeway grocery store on January 8, has enthralled the nation with her fighter's spirit and compelling will to make a recovery, but for each positive milestone she reaches in her recuperation, we cannot help but continue to wonder why such a senseless act of cruelty happened in the first place.
As we all know by now, the tragic alleged assassination attempt that nearly claimed the life of the congresswoman ended in the deaths of six people, including a nine-year-old girl, and the injuries of 13 others. Reckless acts of violence like this one remind us all of how precious and fragile life is. Events like these bring us together in both sadness and hope.
Getting hurt and recovering is always difficult. The process of recovery is even more difficult, however, if the injuries were intentionally caused or even if they resulted from someone else's negligence. As a
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre personal injury lawyer, I am familiar with the confusion, stress, and trauma associated with the days immediately following a serious injury. A compassionate and experienced lawyer at
Rogan Law Firm can take the burden of legalities off your shoulders so that you can focus on your recovery.
