Faith To Take The Next Step

June 4, 2015 | Your Case Value

Life does not always follow our plans. It presents us with challenges and opportunities that surprise us and catch us off guard. The reality is that you (or someone you care about) is facing a battle against Goliath. Whether you prepare for the encounter or not, it is about to happen or it may already be happening.

Yes, your situation may seem unfair. In an ideal world, insurance companies and other liable parties would treat their clients with more respect, behave with stewardship and integrity, and strive to do the right thing. But our society is far from a utopia. We often must go to extra effort – sometimes extraordinary efforts – to preserve our basic rights, to ensure justice and fairness for ourselves and our families, and to play our role in preserving the fabric of our civil society.

The metaphorical battle between David and Goliath that we have discussed here is one of the most important of our time. We believe that David can prevail in spite of what you might have been told, and in spite of the potentially long odds stacked against you.

You see, despite the reservations of all those around him, David was not afraid to do what he knew in his heart was right. He was not intimidated by the fact that Goliath had been in battle several times before and won. David did not let his circumstances shy him away from a victory for all. He used his faith and the experience he did have in finding the proper weapons for battle, and in the end David overcame.

In an ideal world, you want to avoid a war against Goliath. You want to demonstrate to Goliath that you have an overwhelming case, and that it would be foolish for him to oppose you. To that end, your Alabama personal injury lawyer, wrongful death lawyer and accident trial lawyer law firm should be willing and able to go to trial, if need be, and win your personal injury, wrongful death and accident case.

With the five smooth stones we have discussed, the metaphorical slingshot, a sure guided hand, and invisible armor, it is possible to take out the biggest foe and score a victory too, not only for yourself and your family but for society at large.

Now is the time to stand up and say with passion and conviction: “We demand fairness, Goliath. We demand that you do the right thing — or we will do what we have to do to make you.”
