I was on my way to work one morning. I came to a complete stop on the 57 Northbound just before the 210 Eastbound. One second everything is perfect, and the next second I am rear-ended at high velocity while my car remained at a complete stop. Three cars were totaled as a result of the violent collision. The paramedics arrived on the scene, helped me out of my car, and carried me on a gurney to the ambulance.
As a result of the accident, I injured my left shoulder and lower-back. I lost most of my range of motion with my left shoulder. And the injury to my lower-back made it difficult to walk, let alone continue with my normal list of activities.
At first, I was against the idea of getting a lawyer. I guess I felt that given time my injuries would heal by themselves. I also didn’t want to deal with all the time-consuming intricacies of a lawsuit. Weeks became months and my injuries were actually getting worse, in spite of all my attempts at improvement, including chiropractor, massage, acupuncture, stretching exercises, ice packs, ointments, anti-inflammatory medications, and on-and-on.
After around 3 months from the time of the accident, my wife reminded me that it might be a good idea if we contacted a lawyer. I contacted Jason Javaheri at JAVAHERI & YAHOUDAI. After my initial consultation, Jason immediately impressed me as being highly knowledgeable, professional, and personable. It felt like a big weight had been lifted from me. I felt confident that I now had someone that was looking out for my recovery.
Jason recommended that I make an appointment with an orthopedic specialist. The orthopedic determined that I had a severely impinged left shoulder, including torn tendons. He said that without surgery, it would never fully recover. For my lower-back, he determined I had two herniated discs and recommended epidurals.
After the surgery and with months of physical therapy, my shoulder is close to a full recovery. I am absolutely convinced that without the surgery, my shoulder would have not properly healed. I am also convinced that without the exceptional representation from Jason and his staff, I would not have received the medical attention I needed.
Hiring Jason at JAVAHERI & YAHOUDAI turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve made for me and my family. He consistently provided timely communications. He told me not only the current status of my case but also what to anticipate. Anytime I had questions, he always responded in a prompt and professional manner, which I really appreciated. He settled my case for the maximum policy limit amount, and without having to file a lawsuit.
If I ever find myself in another car accident, I will not hesitate to contact Jason Javaheri at JAVAHERI & YAHOUDAI. Thanks Jason!
