I love hearing from you. And more importantly people suffering from serious injuries find solace in hearing about how we have been able to help to get your life back on track.
For that reason, we are including an excerpt from a recent review.I retained Frank Smith when my 85 year-old mother was severely injured as a passenger in an auto accident.
The case was sensitive because of my mother’s advanced age; her close personal friendship with the driver and her extra ordinary fear of the legal process. Since many of the initial interviews took place while my mother was recovering from injuries that included a brain bleed, micro fractures and internal organ trauma, Frank visited her in the hospitals and rehabilitation centers.
From the first meeting Frank’s professionalism and friendly personality put her at ease. Frank was able to alleviate her fear of involving a close personal friend in the case. He explained every detail of how he in-tended to pursue the case and he hired an investigator who managed to secure eye-witness testimony that attested to the fact that drive who struck the car in which my mother was riding was driving recklessly. This was very important because the vehicle in which my mother was a passenger was making a left turn across a busy intersection and the first reports indicated that my mother’s friend was at fault. By establishing that the other driver was at fault, Frank not only strengthened our case but the alleviated tension between my mother and her friend.
Over the course of the next two years Frank was attentive to my mother’s needs and patiently walked her through every step of the process. From depositions to arbitration, Frank’s command of the nuances of the case were more than impressive. Frank secured the maximum settlement from the drive at fault, who was underinsured to meet the award set forth by the arbiters. Frank then pursed my mother’s insurance carrier for the balance of the settlement and was once again successful.
Aside from winning an award that compensated my mother for her pain, suffering and inconvenience, Frank was able to comfort a frightened senior citizen through a long and difficult ordeal. She has become Frank’s biggest fan. Anytime the subject of the accident comes up, she always says that she wouldn’t have made it through experience without Frank. We are all grateful for the kindness he has shown our family and excellent manner in which Frank resolved this case."
