I can't think of a better lawyer or person to handle a catastrophic personal injury settlement or trial.
I was struck by a car walking in a local parking lot in December 2009. The accident left me with 2 fractured vertebrae and a shattered leg below the knee that emergency-room team recommended amputation, but brought in a required consulting physician before proceeding, which physician reconstructed my leg in 8 operations over the next 3 years. I spent the first three days in the hospital interviewing attorneys to handle my case. After seeking second opinions, I was both comfortable and confident in my selection of Stephen Waldman to take my case. I spend the next 4 months in the hospital, during which time Mr. Waldman worked closely with me, the other party, my physicians as well as peer physicians, local authorities, experts and professionals to build a solid case for trial, including a video production to present my life both before and after the accident. The case Mr. Waldman built over that year and a half was so strong that the insurance carriers for the other side agreed in May 2011 to pay an additional two-hundred and fifty thousand dollars on top of a multi-million dollar settlement they had initially agreed to pay in negotiations that day. The strategies Stephen Waldman pursued avoided a long and costly trial and won a settlement that will protect me for the rest of my life.
