John WS Acheson handles cases in Personal Injury.  He protects victims who are harmed by the negligence of another person or entity.  Personal Injury refers to an injury of the body or mind.  Negligence, in turn, is defined as the failure to act with the prudence that a reasonable person would exercise under the same circumstances.  Negligence occurs when a persons conduct imposes an unreasonable risk upon another, which results in injury, harm or death to that person.  Every person has a legal duty which requires that he or she conduct himself according to a reasonable person standard, so as to avoid unreasonable risk to others.  If someone fails to conform with that duty and causes injury to another person, he or she may be liable for the damages caused.

The entire office is friendly and knowledgeable. They communicated throughout the entire time I was working with them. They kept me in the "know" at all times. Mr Acheson goes out of his way to make his clients feel important.
