Personal Injury: Do We Understand? You Bet We Do. By George B. Tofaute

A few years ago, I was hit from behind by a semi-truck driver. In a split second, and without any warning except a terrifying glance in the rear-view mirror, there was a crash of a semi-truck into my car. It changed my life forever. I knew I was hurt. First I felt nauseated. I knew I was going to be sick. My head, neck, back and shoulders began to hurt. I was very hot. But I sat still until I heard sirens and then help arrived.

Even though we help people every day in similar situations, it was still hard to know what to do next. A police officer wrote his report and told me the semi driver was to be arrested. I was able to take myself to the doctor and then started months of diagnostic tests and treatments: x-rays, a CT scan, 2 MRI's, physical therapy and ultimately surgery on my neck and another one projected from my shoulder.

In a moment, I went from the attorney to "the client." Thankfully, I work with several professionals who would help me manage my case. As a result of my own journey from the accident, I vowed to always remember what it is like to be a client on the other side of the table. It literally turns your life upside down.

At Tofaute & Spelman, we have a team of men and women who know and understand the effects of injury situations. We care about injured people and their families, because we too, have been there.
