I was rear ended on the freeway and suffered an injury to my back. Even though I had to do 8 months of extensive therapy and still suffer some side effects, I could not get an attorney to take my case because my injury was classified as soft tissue damage. That meant they thought I did not have a strong case or there wasn’t enough money involved to be bothered to go to trial. So I took bad advice from those other attorneys and tried to work with the insurance company myself. Two years went by and the insurance company that said they would pay my medical bills in full was only waiting for my statue of limitations to expire, thinking I would not file a law suit and they would be in the clear. I had to file suit on my own and once again I was on the hunt for an attorney. Thank God an attorney who would not take my case referred me to Michael Ghozland. He said “If anyone can help you it’s him”. And he was right. Michael stood by my side for a year. He believed in me and my case. I did not realize how emotionally taxing these situations can be and Michael treated me as if I were one of his family members. He was patient and supportive. I never felt like I was just another client or that he wanted to get the settlement over quickly so he could get paid. In the end we were able to settle. Something I was unable to do for two years prior. I come from a family of attorneys and they were impressed by Michael as well. His attention to detail, strategy, excellent communication and follow up can’t be beat. I only wish I would have known Michael when my accident first happened.
