#IBDayofAction Events – Check Out What IB Firms Are Doing This September

DOA_15_FB_profileAs September approaches, we are very excited to help families and children during the 2nd Annual Injury Board Day of Action, a collaborative effort between our member firms, Ronald McDonald House Charities Network of Local Chapters and Children’s Hospitals from across the U.S.

The IB Day of Action (#IBDayofAction), scheduled for September 17, is a nationwide community outreach effort hosted by The Injury Board to bring together plaintiffs’ firms from across the U.S.—all working for the same cause on the same day.

“We are passionate about helping Injury Board members give back to their communities; it’s part of the DNA of our organization,” says Tom Young, attorney-at-law and co-founder of The Injury Board. “We are extremely proud to bring our members together for this day of action. To make even the smallest difference is better than making no difference at all.”

With nearly 50 firms representing 50 major cities across the U.S. participating in the #IBDayofAction, this year’s event is shaping up to be a fantastic success.
