This Central and Syracuse New York personal injury lawyer seldom delves into his personal life in these blog posts, but I feel compelled to do so today. It is the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I recently spent two blissful weeks visiting my two daughters, their significant others, and my three-year old grandchild in Spain (see accompanying picture). I spent Thanksgiving with my Central New York State-side family, including my other daughter, two sons, wife, parents, who are both alive and well at 83, multiple brothers with wives and kids, etc. I count more than 50 “close” family members, including 5 brothers, all with great wives and children. And remarkably, we are, every single one of us, healthy, uninjured, and well-off.
My job as a Central and Syracuse New York accident lawyer requires me to confront my clients’ sometimes unbearable injuries, loss of loved ones, loss of income, and related misfortunes. Those misfortunes are caused by the carelessness of others. But some misfortunes are caused by just plain bad luck.
My family has, so far, had nothing but good luck – we have avoided the slings and arrows that nature rains down on some — the unlucky – and we have, so far, also avoided the injuries that befall those who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when someone else acts negligently or carelessly. Knock on wood!
Dear reader, if you are lucky like me, take a moment to count your blessings. If you have not been so lucky, may luck now find you.
