[GRAPHIC: Super Lawyers, Doug Olcott rated by Super Lawyers, Attorney Doug Olcott talks about helping injured victims.]

Doug Olcott: I’m Doug Olcott with the law offices of Dallas W. Hartman P.C. I’ve been practicing law since 1990 and I focus my practice on personal injury law consisting of product defects, medical malpractice, legal malpractice, automobile negligence, and slip and fall cases.

When I was practicing law in New Jersey I began as a defense attorney working for the insurance companies. Being a former defense attorney I believe has helped me in that I know what is going to be expected. When you represent a defendant for an insurance company, there’s a certain process that the insurance company is going to go through when evaluating a case. When I represent plaintiffs now, I can anticipate what that process is going to be.

I guess the best part of helping people is you can’t go back and undo what has happened from an accident. You can’t replace a loved one, you can’t give somebody back a limb that’s been lost. You can’t give somebody back their health when they’ve been injured. But if you’re able to give them compensation so that they can make their life better, that’s when you feel good about yourself. When you know that you can do something to help somebody improve the quality of their life because they’ve been the victim of somebody else’s negligence, that’s very rewarding.
