One day, I was riding my motorcycle down a rural road in Oakland. The next thing I knew, a car pulled in front of me, and even though I was not speeding, I was not able to stop in time to avoid an accident. As a result of the accident I broke my leg and it just would not heal.
The case was originally handled by another law firm, but when it became clear that my injury was serious, my original lawyers knew to refer the case to Winer, McKenna, Burritt & Tillis LLP, who specialize in serious personal injury cases.
At the time that I retained John Winer as my lawyer my life had become unbearable and I was filled with anxiety of what the future would be like for me, my wife and my two young children.
After my case had dragged on for two years with only a minimal offer from the other driver’s insurance company, Winer, McKenna, Burritt & Tillis LLP completely turned the case around. He hired a team of experts that documented the very serious nature of my injury and how it would affect me in my profession as a house builder/construction worker.
Once I hired John Winer I felt the momentum of the case shift in my favor. Mr. Winer went on the offensive in establishing fault on the other driver and documenting my damages. Within three months a case that had only had a small offer settled for $1,375,000.
Mr. Winer arranged for a settlement in which I was able to have enough money to do what I needed to do immediately, and, he made the other driver’s insurance pay me and my family significant monthly payments for the rest of my life.
It has been four years since my case has settled. Some days I am able to work, but some days I’m not. I thank the offices of John D. Winer for helping me and my family achieve the financial security that we needed at time when I thought we were going to be destitute.
I would recommend the law firm to anybody who has suffered a serious injury.
