I was referred to Antonio Tejeda when my mother suffered a traumatic brain injury at work. Although the referring attorney suggested meeting with Antonio right away I questioned the need for help at the very beginning. After meeting the employer’s workman compensation representative it was clear I was in for a real challenge and needed expert help immediately.
Working with Antonio turned out be the best decision I could have made. Antonio and his network of colleagues stepped in right away and immediately went to work protecting the rights and care my mother desperately needed allowing my family and I to focus on our mother and her health.
As my mother focused on recovering from her injury, her employer was focused on minimizing their exposure to paying for her care at all costs. With Antonio working on my mother’s case my mind was at ease. He quickly intervened when the employer wanted to assign a QRC they regularly contracted. Antonio was able to request and get assigned a high quality QRC who was un-biased in his evaluation of my mothers care and truly worked to make sure my mother received the care she needed. I am confident had Antonio not stepped in and assigned an independent QRC my mother would never have received the high quality of care she needed.
Once my mother was home from the hospital the employer made every effort to minimize my mothers’ injury. The employer exhausted every effort to minimize their responsibility to make payments for medical care and income benefits. Again Antonio stepped in and held the employer accountable for the appropriate medical care, payments and income benefits.
Antonio has been very instrumental in making sure my family and I could focus on helping my mother recover rather than fighting the employer and their big budget attorneys. He has been polite, professional and very patient with my family and my mother’s complicated case. His meetings and conversations are to the point when needed and expanded with detailed explanations when we did not understand or requested more information. Antonio was very open about the case, what the outcomes could be both good and bad and never set expectation he could not reasonably deliver.
My family and I are grateful for Antonio’s hard work, knowledge, and network of colleagues he brings in to assist for a successful outcome. Without Antonio my mother would not be in as good a shape, physically, mentally or financially. Our case is continuing and we look forward to working with Antonio to finally resolve our mother’s needs with a positive outcome.
