What We Do

Why Fight Back?

At the most fundamental level, Baron & Budd “Protects What’s Right” for anyone or any entity that has been wrongfully harmed by the negligent actions of others.  Our work, over nearly four decades, has not only helped thousands of people by bringing them compensation for the injuries they have suffered — it has also changed law and corporate policies so that future harms, in many cases, have been entirely eliminated or greatly reduced.

We have helped thousands of people harmed by asbestos, toxic water contamination, financial fraud and various deceptive schemes.

But we cannot do our work unless you take the first step: making the decision to fight back.

In fact, if, over the years, people just like you had not spoken up when they were harmed – physically, financially or otherwise – America today would likely be a land of cars without seat belts, workers without protective gear, drinking water without toxin screening and even more financial chaos.

While our government safeguards are important, it is not possible for any of the governmental regulatory organizations such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to do the job alone. Regulators cannot know the potential risks of every product, and manufacturers sometimes deliberately hide those risks from the government.

Corporate America likes to portray trial lawyers and people who file lawsuits as greedy folks who are simply taking advantage of a little bad luck in hopes of getting rich quick. They often make it seem like the lawsuits people file are trivial and bad for business. But we can assure you that the people we have represented and the battles we have waged over nearly four decades were anything but trivial or greedy.

Our legal battles were precedent-setting actions made possible only by the bravery of people like you who were blindsided by something that just wasn’t right. And if keeping people safe isn’t good for business, well, then we don’t know what is.

Instead of just moving on and accepting their fate when confronted with life-threatening illnesses or financial loss, our clients chose to fight back – not just to right their own wrongs, but, more importantly, to change the fundamental negligence that caused their harm.

We hope you will fight back, too.
