How To Prevent Further Harm Through Publicity After A Serious Injury Or Loss
Harper & Peterson, P.L.L.C., has had the privilege of helping many people recover compensation after being injured or losing loved ones in unspeakable tragedies, such as murders, falls in the 35W bridge collapse and other notorious incidents.
Sometimes we have represented well-known people, such as politicians, wealthy business owners, entertainers and sports celebrities, for whom privacy is essential. In other cases, we have represented previously private individuals who suffered great injuries in accidents or crimes highlighted by the mass media. Whether the survivor or the injury was of greatest interest to the public, our clients in such cases want and need privacy, as they:
- Need time and space to mourn, regroup and recover while adapting to a “new normal” after an unspeakable loss
- Want to preserve the ability for minors and other vulnerable people in a family or company to live as normal a life as possible after a dramatic event
- Desire to prevent intrusion by scammers, burglars, kidnappers or others who might target them for theft or extortion if their high-dollar compensation amounts are made public
In all our injury cases, but especially in notorious incidents that naturally attract the glare of public attention, we take every measure we can to protect our clients’ privacy. We painstakingly build safeguards into documents that will be a part of court records to prevent our clients’ sensitive information from being leaked to media sources without their consent.
Our Pledge To You As We Hold Wrongdoers Accountable: Confidentiality And Transparency
