MY OWN PERSONAL INJURY STORY
I played and refereed soccer games as a youth and young man. I even did a couple of triathlons. I prided myself on my abilities and activity level. At 19 years old, while doing a timed, taped exercise program I pulled and tore some muscles in my lower back and groin. Within two days, I couldn’t walk and when I tried to get out of bed the next morning I passed out from the pain. I passed out three more times before I could get the drugs I needed.
NO ONE COULD SEE MY INJURY
I spent six months rehabilitating. In classes, I mostly stood in back or behind my desk. It wouldn’t have shown up on an x-ray. But I know it was real. I experienced it and it put me out of commission from the activities I was used to doing for a long time.
UNDERSTANDING YOUR CHALLENGE
I believe it’s important to share this story because I want you to know before we talk, if you choose to call, that I really do have a good idea what you are going through. What the insurance industry likes to call a “soft tissue injury,” though unseen, can be extremely painful and debilitating.
You can be assured that when I fight for you, I won’t be swayed by their arguments that the treatments you received should have been more than enough for your recovery. Just because they can’t see your pain doesn’t mean it’s not real. I know better. And we in our office know what the law allows and what we can fight for. Because I have experienced some of the pain you are feeling and, like you, have suffered through long days of pain, I will fight to get you the treatment you need, and just compensation for your injuries, pain, and suffering.
Every once in a while, life throws you a curveball. I try to be the resource my clients need whenever that happens.
