Carelessness is very costly in terms of both money lost and the human toll. The cost of car accidents alone is staggering. Every year, there are over 7 million car accidents in the united states.

Injuries in the work place cost about 1.6 billion each year. The point is that carelessness costs billions every year in property damage and medical expenses, and deaths and diabling injuries result in a human toll that cannot be expressed in dollars and cents. In other words, it pays to be careful, and Mr. Lara is fiercely commited to holding accountalbe those whose carelessness causes harm to his clients.
