Protecting Children one helmet at a time. The Justice For Children Foundation


heads in helmets for life video



The number one cause of traumatic brain injuries in children under five are in car wrecks. 

When bicycle helmets were mandated, traumatic brain injuries went down 75% and deaths for children went down 85% and we're thinking, well if they went down 75 to 85 percent when they started wearing them on bicycles, why not in cars? 


What's the difference in a race car driver wearing a helmet and a kid wearing a helmet? 

What's the difference in wearing a helmet on a bicycle or skateboard or in a child safety seat?,

And I'm just saying, isn't this the next logical step? 

In 1999, we were walking through the office and my sister said "You know, we have a lot of pictures of children" and while we were looking at that describing what happened to each child and how they got hurt, we had a really life-changing, a life-altering profound moment when we realized that every one of those injuries were preventable. 

We went on a quest if you will; we had a mission to make sure that we stopped preventable injuries to children. 

I've seen the worst of the worst and I've seen how traumatic brain injuries and injuries to small children can devastate a family. And so we went and bought helmets and started giving them away. 

We teamed up with pediatricians and physicians. It went from us running a little ad in the newspaper, buying a bunch of helmets and giving them away, to partner up with doctors, getting volunteers, forming a board of directors. It's really turned into a large successful nonprofit charity. 

We get to go places that other lawyers can't go, because we're not out there saying, "Hey, come hire us" We're out there saying, "Hey, let's prevent injuries" 

If I never get another traumatic brain injury case because no child ever receives an injury, I couldn't be happier. 

My mission is to make sure that we put a helmet on every single child in America....and that's our goal we're not going to quit until we get there.

MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!!

I've learned that preventable,
Need less
harms and losses and wrongful deaths
there needs to be justice for them
and I saw that as a child.
Having my father murdered when I was six years old
that's had a big impact on my life and why I
chose to go into the personal injury law and why I
like to help people.
They're injured, they have medical bills they can't pay,
they can't work and they have lost income, they don't know
if they're going to lose their home.
We take that off of them.
We'll take care of the bill collectors.
We'll take care getting your medical bills paid.

Waking up in the hospital they waited for a while
to tell me
that
I lost my leg.
They're trying to put the pieces together for
our family.

I met Howard and them up to the office and the way they
work together is awesome.
Nobody thinking that
they're better than the next person and...
it's just like everybody in here family.
Not only did I gain lawyers,
I gained family that day.

Tony

Anybody that's been involved with anything
that's not their fault and they're seriously injured,
you need the legal help from somebody that will really
care about him and go the extra mile.
I recommend him.

Howard

It's hard for an individual to go up against
big corporations, trucking companies, insurance companies,
a city,
a county, a municipality.
A lawsuit is like a war and if you're going to war
you better make darn sure that you have the right team
on your side.

If you don't have a team on your side that has the
finances and the resources and the experience
to stand up and ask for what sometimes is millions
of dollars, you're not gonna get full justice.

In order
to go before twelve strangers and go before a judge
and tell someone's story,
if you're not passionate and your heart's not in it
you can't fool twelve people.
You've got to have the tenacity
you've got to have the passion
you've got to be able to zealously represent
your client
and stand up
against

the Goliaths of the world.
