The many benefits of being a personal injury lawyer

Michał Krzanowski11 August 2017Komentarze (0)

There’s no mistaking it: a lawyer’s job can be a drudge at times. Fortunately though, there are also days that make up for all that, and more. For me one of such days was yesterday, when I had the pleasure to meet with the Members of one of America’s greatest bands – The Dillinger Escape Plan.

The Dillinger Escape Plan is an American band from Morris Plains, New Jersey, formed in 1997. The band is often regarded as one of the pioneers of the mathcore genre, and throughout their career they have become very well known for their intense, energetic shows. The band received many awards and accolades, such as the Golden God Award from Revolver Magazine for “Best Underground Band” (in 2010). Moreover, at the 2017 Association of Independent Music Awards the band is going to be honoured again, as they are set to receive the “Outstanding Contribution to Music” prize. Apart from that, the band Members have been honoured individually for their accomplishments and talent on several occasions. The band currently consists of the following Members:

  • Ben Weinman (lead guitar)
  • Liam Wilson (bass)
  • Greg Puciato (lead vocals)
  • Billy Rymer (drums)
  • Kevin Antreassian (rhythm guitar)

Insofar the band has recorded the following studio albums:

  • Calculated Infinity (1999)
  • Miss Machine (2004)
  • Ire Works (2007)
  • Option Paralysis (2010)
  • One of Us Is the Killer (2013)
  • Dissociation (2016)

Unfortunately, during the band’s January-March 2017 European tour, promoting the latest album – Dissociation, the Members were involved in a road traffic accident. The accident occurred in Poland, while the band was travelling to Kraków after an outstanding performance in Warszawa. As a result of said accident, the band was forced to cancel the tour, with 19 shows remaining to be played (including the one in Kraków). The band Members sustained several injuries, and required medical treatment. Additionally, most of the band’s equipment was damaged beyond repair.

On 10 August 2017, the band safely returned to Kraków in order to play the cancelled show. This was a unique opportunity for me to meet in person with the Members of the band, whom we are representing in their personal injury case. Due to the fact that the accident occurred in Poland, Polish law is applicable to the case.
