As somebody who has been injured in a serious car accident myself, I am truly sorry for your recent involvement in this incident. However, I fully empathize with your ordeal. With the insurance companies defending and fighting for their at-fault insured, you too need a vigorous, professional, and caring partner as an attorney who will advocate for your rights. As you know, I do not have any car crash commercials, pictures of clients in neck braces, or promises of making you rich. However, what I do have and promise you is that I am committed to our attorney-client relationship and as such, will strive to provide not only top notch legal advice, but also equal client service and availability. In order to facilitate a clear and open channel of communication, I value any client contact, whether it is by phone, email, or text. To that extent, you can expect me to always keep you updated along every step of the way and vice-versa, should you have any question at any time, you will know that I am there for you.

I would be more than happy to provide to you a free consultation, however, my consultations differ from any other attorney in the personal injury field. Not only do I explain the process from beginning to end, but I also am willing and confident enough to show you my past work so that you can compare it to other attorneys you may be consulting with at this time. As a recently involved car accident victim, you most likely have many questions and I am looking forward to not only giving you answers, but to also show you my past examples of work and how I practice personal injury law.


Some of the most prevalent injuries that stem from an automobile accident are concussions. Not only are they extremely prevalent, but also they are also extremely dangerous. These are very serious injuries because in many cases the victim does not realize he has suffered one until a trained medical professional observes him. When a potential client contacts me, this is the primary medical condition that I suggest the client receives treatment for. Concussions are seen as a very serious matter, they are even classified as a traumatic brain injury, albeit a minor one. This is an injury that may plague the victim for a very long time; it may even affect them for the rest of their lives.

The list of symptoms is extensive and ranges from a headache all the way to something as serious as seizures. Because it is such a prevalent injury, most medical professionals have extensive experience when it comes to treating such a condition. An EEG, head CT scan, or an MRI of the brain may be necessary in order to visualize the damage. Technological advancements have strived to prevent concussions, but because of the violent nature of an automobile collision, it may never be possible to fully prevent concussions from happening. Because of this, drivers must know what symptoms to look out for, but also keep in mind that you may not even realize that you have suffered a concussion, which is why you need to seek help in any case after you have been involved in an accident, no matter the severity. Not only do you need to be under the supervision of a healthcare professional, but you should also be educated on the symptoms that come with such an injury.

Because this may impact you for the rest of your life, you need to be prepared financially, as excellent healthcare is not cheap. The insurance company involved needs to be informed that you are entering a life long battle and it is their responsibility to ease this burden. Of course, the insurance company will do anything in their power to minimize the compensation. This is where hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer becomes crucial.

Helpful Tip

Never speak with an insurance claims representative, without an attorney, including your own insurance company. Insurance companies share information with each other and anything you say will be used against you to damage and minimize your case. Please contact me for further information.
