Work With An Experienced Attorney
Who Understands Your Concerns
Throughout the years, I’ve found that many times people in the gay and lesbian community are apprehensive about filing claims. This is unfortunate, as individuals sometimes forego their right for reimbursement of medical bills, lost wages and compensation for loss in quality of life, although injured by the negligence of others through absolutely no fault of their own.
Individuals may be fearful that the court system may look down on them, or that embarrassment may result because others might not understand or “approve” of their sexual orientation. I have for many years handled and litigated numerous personal injury claims involving those in the gay and lesbian community. Oftentimes, the partner of the injured person may, if desired, become a part of a claim because they are impacted as well, either by watching their partner suffer through an injury, or having to take care of their partner during an injury and time for recovery.
Individuals with these concerns can be assured there are many legal tools available to make sure that people in the gay and lesbian community are not discriminated against in any manner whatsoever. We would never imply that attorneys not active in the gay and lesbian community would be prejudiced towards gay and lesbian clients; however, it is important for individuals to be comfortable with their attorney in all respects regarding the various concerns pertaining to these matters. I understand those concerns and know how to effectively deal with these issues.
We at The Fry Law Firm are in tune with these concerns and are well equipped to handle these types of matters.
