Where “I’ll Make Them Pay”® Comes From

After 20 appearances on “Live on Lakeside” Michael and I finally talk about my slogan “I’ll Make Them Pay”® and where it all began.

The Inspiration Behind “I’ll Make Them Pay”®

Unfortunately, the tale behind “I’ll Make Them Pay”® is a sad one to tell. Many years ago, I received a call from a young father.  His son had just went in for a simple surgical procedure, and due to negligent medical error – Suffered a terribly severe brain injury. An easy procedure and something went terribly wrong.  He called me, and he just didn’t know where else to turn.

I met with him and their family immediately.  It was clear that they were heart broken and distraught – With only one goal in mind. The doctor that caused this tragedy has got to be held accountable.

On my way out of the hospital, the boys’ grandmother pokes me in the chest – All 98 pounds of fury, she tells me  ‘GO MAKE THEM PAY’.

I told her I will.

And I did.

I dedicated all of my experience, resources and energy to this case. The family was compensated, the doctor was held accountable, and they were able to resume as normal of a life as possible.
