Earlier this month, Attorney Gerald Marcus was invited to return to The Don and Gino Real Estate and Finance Show, an hour-long radio show airing on AM 1220 KHTS. During this second visit to the show, Attorney Marcus discussed the work of our firm, The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, the mission of the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers' Charities, and the importance of having proper auto coverage in California.
The Los Angeles Trial Lawyers' Charities
Attorney Marcus has been closely involved in the efforts of the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers' Charities (or LATLC) and, last year, was elected to the non-profit's Board of Directors as Secretary. Founded in 2006, LATLC works better underserved communities throughout greater Los Angeles via work with partnering charities, such as March of Dimes, the Downtown Women's Center, Ronald McDonald House LA, and many others.
"We saw the need to give back, basically," Attorney Marcus told the hosts, referring to the local community of personal injury attorneys involved with LATLC. "Not just in the way of representing our clients or writing a check to a charity, but to actually getting out there to women's shelters and to helping the homeless, education, children's issues... we're actually out there." Attorney Marcus added that doing work with LATLC is "the best feeling in the world."
Making Sure You Are Properly Protected
Attorney Marcus also spoke at length about auto coverage in California and the many scenarios injury victims might find themselves in following an accident. These included being hurt by someone who has minimum coverage, which nearly half of California drivers have and often does not cover all resulting damages, and using comparative negligence to seek funds from multiple, partially negligent parties.
He also elaborated on his firm's commitment to assisting accident victims that other firms are likely to turn away. "People don't want to call an attorney, but a year and a half later they're stuck with medical bills... and most attorneys would just say, it's just too late, you messed up," he told the hosts. "But we help those people... [our work is] about trying to help the community, help people, help their families, and being the person, the firm, the professional that they can call for anything they need."
