My life was forever changed 2 years ago, when I was driving down road by my home and a man crossed over the median and hit me and my daughter head on. Our pet died in our accident, but by the grace of God, my daughter and I survived. I have never been in this type of lawsuit before, and I felt lost and terrified. I had a concussion, and although many of my daughter’s and my injuries were not visible, we were never the same. I hired a strong, well vetted personal injury attorney, and he approached me about a year into my case and said that he would like to have Bethany Schneider take over, since she was the as “the best” when dealing with any type of traumatic brain injury.
To be honest, I was concerned about having someone else take over the case, but I trusted my attorney and put my case in the hands of Bethany Schneider. I’m so grateful I did. At first, I wondered would this new attorney understand what my daughter and I had been through? Would she fight for us? I am a doctor myself, I wondered, would she really understand concussions?
As my case moved forward, I could not have been more impressed and pleased with Bethany Schneider and her firm. She listened to all of my concerns and really understood what I wanted to pursue in my case. Not only that, she has more knowledge on different types of head injuries than many of the professionals that I communicate with in the field. When it came down to deposing the defendant, she asked specific questions that I asked her to, even if they weren’t part of her strategy, or in her best interest. She understood that this case was more than about money for me, and that I needed areas of closure to fully heal from this accident. I have never felt so well represented. In the end, she was able to get more than twice the amount of the limits for my case, as well as for my daughter. Money will never resolve the pain and loss that was endured the day of my accident, but the amount she was able get from the defendant’s party finally gave me a sense that someone valued the pain and suffering that my daughter and I had gone through. She wrote a letter summarizing my pain and suffering to the defendant that was one of the most healing pieces of this process. If you have had a head injury, go to Bethany Schneider. If you want to get the most you could possibly get out of a settlement, go to Bethany Schneider. If you want to be heard and represented the way you feel is best, go to Bethany Schneider. But most importantly for me, if you want closure, to be validated for your pain and suffering, and want to heal, go to Bethany Schneider.
