One of the most rewarding aspects of our job at Barrow Law Firm is to help courageous people stand up for their rights and recover from what are often terrible circumstances. We want to pause and celebrate several remarkable people who have turned tragedy into action. And, to take it a step further, we’re asking you to vote for one of these nominees in the 2015 Justice Served Awards.
- Dr. Stephen Loyd, a prominent physician calling for mandatory drug testing of all doctors after revealing that he himself was battling drug problems.
- Amy Van Dyken-Rouen, a former Olympic swimmer raising awareness of spinal cord injuries after she was paralyzed from the waist down following an ATV accident.
- Dr. John T. James, a toxicologist whose research upended the medical profession with stunning estimates of annual deaths caused by medical errors.
- Reggie McKinnon, a father speaking out about children dying from heat stroke after he mistakenly left his 17-month-old daughter in his car on a hot day.
By standing up together, we can help encourage others to take action.
