After being shot twice on a foot patrol as an armed security Metro Enforcement Officer in Rockford Illinois, it was assumed the case was a no brainer. Considering I had no fault in the manner you would think things like Physical therapy, mental health services, on time TTD benifits (weekly pay through Illinois Workers Comp) and getting the bullet removed from my shoulder along with other needed surgeries would have been a non issue. Gesmer along with Brad promised to go after Auburn Manor, the place where I was shot, and get me the services, medications and doctors appointments that were desperately needed but over the course of almost a year Gesmer law did not successfully accomplish one thing they promised to handle, this is not an exaggeration, it is a fact, they did not accomplish one single things for me. After almost loosing my leg these lawyers couldn't even manage to get me a single session of Physical therapy for it. With a bullet lodged in my shoulders I waited six months while they stood by and let me suffer through the pain, sending their emails and accomplishing absolutely nothing in my favor. Jim and Brad did nothing but go along with what Illinois Workers comp told them to and rob me of 20% of the pathetic settlement that was reached for sending emails. After doing the math I found that a fair settlement would have been over one million dollars, I walked away with less than 10% of that. Phone calls and emails often went unreturned for days even weeks as they were on vacation. They were not there for me they were there to help the insurance company deal with me and collect their fee. Not one thing was successfully completed by Gesmer law, they failed me at every turn, and shamelessly collected their fee. The insurance stopped paying me April 7th 2015 and did not send my settlement check until July 21st, for 3 months I didn't get a dollar of the pay I was entitled to, I almost lost everything.
Feel free to contact me for an 11 page document with dates and pictures. There was no benefit to hiring these people they did nothing I couldn't have done for myself if the insurance wasn't allowed to ignore my phone calls and only respond to attorneys. By far the biggest and most expensive mistake I have ever made.
