Why Personal Injury Attorney Jim Schwebel Does What He Does


February 2013

Attorney Jim Schwebel sat down to reminisce about one of his first experiences as a personal injury lawyer. He met with a man who became paralyzed due to an accident caused by a drunk driver. Mr. Schwebel remembers driving down a long dirt road in western Minnesota to meet with his new client. Once he arrived, the man’s wife took him to a back bedroom where the man was lying in a bed. The room did not have air conditioning, and there were flies buzzing around overhead. Sadly, when the flies landed on Mr. Schwebel’s client, he was unable to shoo them off his body. In fact, his wife remained nearby to keep the insects away from her husband.

At that moment, Mr. Schwebel knew that he needed to help the man gain the funds necessary to acquire rehabilitation and a better life. As a lawyer he also realized that the family needed someone to speak for them and make those responsible for the man’s injuries understand the gravity of the family’s loss and compensate them. Jim Schwebel was successful, and his client’s lifestyle has significantly improved.
