I was referred to Jerry by two other attorneys when I slipped on ice, in the parking lot at Wrigley Field, and broke my leg. As soon as we began the process of filing a suit, Jerry told me exactly what the process would entail. Everything went the way he said it would. I never doubted his expertise, as he was always genuine and positive. The legal process takes time (which was emphasized heavily from the beginning) but he was great about keeping my up to speed. I found this quite comforting. Also, every contact I had with him began with him showing genuine concern for my personal well-being, before reviewing the facts. I never intended to come out ahead after all was said and done. I simply wanted compensation for my immense medical bills (I was uninsured). Jerry knew that my case was more valuable though. The outcome was way more fruitful than I could have ever expected. It was a combination of this and him just being a good person that inspired me to write this review.
At the end of 2009 my fiance and I were in a bad car accident and Jerry was immensely helpful as we navigated through the process. He kept us very informed of all the legal proceedings and gave us the information we needed to come to the best possible outcome. Without Jerry's help and expertise it would have been a miserable and extremely confusing experience. I would recommend Jerry to any friend, family member or colleague who has been injured. He is knowledgeable and compassionate and I found him to be very qualified in dealing with these cases.
I had the very unfortunate experience of being blind-sided by an Escalade who ran a red light and T-boned my vintage and beautifully restored Porsche, turning it into a fireball and complete loss. I was lucky to walk away from the accident, but I was severely injured and unable to work, on top of losing my car. Luckily Mr. Bekkerman walked me through the entire process with confidence and expertise, making a seemingly difficult situation relatively easy and manageable. At the end of the day, Mr. Bekkerman got me a very favorable outcome, with complete reimbursement of all medical expenses, time and quality of life lost, and compensation far over and above the cost and restoration of my car. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and exceeded any and all expectations I had.
Your service is phenomenal. The fact that you would help not only me with my case but other members of my family without the push for monetary compensation before the cases were win is incredible. I would highly recommend Gerald Bekkerman to everyone I know and wouldn't hesitate to call him again.
