Spring in Brunswick, Georgia & The Golden Isles – Time for Fun and Caution

Spring in Brunswick, Georgia & The Golden Isles is a time for fun.

However, it is also a time to exercise extra caution.

With warming weather, school breaks and the Easter holiday, this time of year means travel plans and exciting outdoor activities. Of course, with spring comes perils specific to southeast Georgia (Brunswick and “The Golden Isles” – St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Sea Island and Little St. Simons Island) which require heightened vigilance on the part of motorists and tourists.

Increased motor vehicle travel on I-95 in Glynn County, Georgia in the spring often equates to serious car crashes, tractor-trailer wrecks and motorcycle accidents. The law of averages dictates that with more cars, trucks and motorcycles on the road, the higher the odds of a serious injury or wrongful death occurring. For this reason, travelers must pay special attention to the traffic and road conditions around them. This is particularly true given there is an increase in people – such as college students – who tend to party, get on the road and then cause
DUI accidents with injuries or fatalities around this time of year.

In addition to travel, spring inspires folks to participate in water-related activities along the coast of Georgia. Boats, jet-skis and other watercraft can offer wonderful days of entertainment in the sun. But these recreational vehicles can also represent serious accidents waiting to happen if not properly operated or if proper safety devices are not utilized in conjunction with their use. Likewise, swimming pools and waterparks are niceties which, when respected and used appropriately, can provide countless hours of enjoyment. Conversely, swimming pool deaths and
serious water park injuries can create a lifetime of pain for injury victims or the loved ones of a child or another person who has drowned.

The Dow Firm, P.C. encourages everyone to safely enjoy Brunswick, Georgia and The Golden Isles during this spring season. However, if a serious injury or wrongful death befalls you or someone you know, please do not hesitate to contact the firm for an immediate free consultation. The Dow Firm, P.C. is ready, with its personal approach, to assist folks whose spring activities culminate in an unfortunate outcome.

Because of the gravity of the situation in a wrongful death or a serious personal injury matter, detailed attention must be paid to the facts. Unfortunately, what is overlooked by many law firms is that detailed attention in such cases must also be paid to the clients at all times during the attorney-client relationship. At some firms, clients become “files” which get shelved and put away after the first meeting. Service and availability end at the time of hire – they do not last throughout the life of the representation.

Not so at The Dow Firm, P.C. Though we may not be acquainted with you when you first call, we will quickly get to know you. And you will quickly get to know us. You will interact with and have access to your lawyer not only at the beginning of the relationship, but at all times through the conclusion of your case.

That is your right and that should be your expectation. We never lose sight of the fact we are in the business of solving grave problems that involve real lives. We recognize injured parties (and/or survivors of those wrongfully killed) want access to their attorney for personal advice. Our clients deserve and receive individual guidance and necessary support as they face important legal decisions. That is founding member J. Dow III’s guarantee and approach.

The Dow Firm, P.C. knows that when the misfortune of a personal injury or wrongful death occurs, a victim’s rights should be timely and effectively preserved by counsel with the experience, the resources and the commitment to address all the complex issues which naturally arise. A good personal injury law firm should be nimble and aggressive, able to quickly gather/secure important evidence and plan and act in advance of future case developments. In the world of personal injury law, bigger does not necessary mean “better” and a “one-size-fits-all” approach is not sufficient to address the nuances of a unique and particular case.

The Dow Firm, P.C.

It is the conviction of The Dow Firm, P.C. that the law firm a client hires should be the firm that represents the client. The firm “hired” should not be a clearing-house which refers the client out to another law firm which can better handle the problem.

And it is our position that already burdened clients should not be forced to navigate a massive organizational bureaucracy – a maze of staff members or “case managers” – in hopes of one day reaching their chosen legal counsel. A client should not feel privileged to talk to his/her lawyer – it should be the other way around.

A personal injury law firm should be concerned with maximizing results for clients, not obsessed with financing the next media campaign in order to bring in more clients. A client’s well-being, not the weight of a law firm’s high-dollar advertising budget, should dictate a representation.

We let the other guys make the “heart-felt” television commercials and flashy internet video-ads. At The Dow Firm, P.C., we are content to make a difference in the lives of the folks who entrust us with their cases.
