Stuart’s Story of Recovery From a Car Accident

When I was 20 years old, I was hit by a car as I crossed the street walking home. The car was traveling around 30 mph and was operated by a drunk driver. I sustained serious injuries mostly to my knee and back, ultimately requiring three surgeries to repair my knee.

It took me a while to recover from my injuries. Truth be told, I’ve never fully recovered.
When the accident happened, I was in college. I had a difficult time physically attending classes after my surgery. I ultimately did finish the school semester. I then decided I wanted to go to law school in order to help people who had gone through what I had gone through.

I was young and had no idea what the experience would teach me at the time. Being involved in a serious accident leaves you vulnerable. You have to learn to live with the physical injuries and psychological trauma of being a victim of a violent event in your life caused by someone else, including the worry and frustration that accompanies personal injury and recovery. Unless you have been through that kind of experience, you don’t really think about what it’s like to deal with physical pain on a regular basis and what it’s like to be unable to do the things you enjoy.

The car accident, my injuries, dealing with the insurance companies, the legal process, and the entire litigation of my case makes me more empathetic towards my clients. I have no doubt it also makes me the best personal injury attorney I can be. An important part of that is educating my clients about the process of the personal injury case and helping them recover financially. That education also focuses on having enough insurance coverage and the right insurance coverage.

Because of personal experience, I am relentless on behalf of my clients in maximizing their settlements to get them as fully compensated as possible.
