Justice achieved for a pedestrian struck by a reckless driver

A friend referred us to Heinrich Law when we needed a personal injury attorney, and I’m so glad she did: I recommend Heinrich Law without reservation.

My 86-year-old mother-in-law was taking her daily walk around our neighborhood when, for no apparent reason, a truck driven by an elderly man swerved off the road and onto the sidewalk where she was, knocking her about 20 feet. The impact fractured several of her ribs, broke one of her ankles and one big toe, and left her with a severe concussion. We are so fortunate that she survived.

My partner and I wanted help navigating the legal & financial landscape in the aftermath of her injury, and particularly we wanted to do a good job of representing my mother-in-law’s best interests and responsibly managing her financial affairs.

Marjorie and her team handled each aspect of our case — including helping interface with the police investigation — so that we could focus all our energies on helping my mother-in-law recover and finding a “new normal” for our family. The entire team at Heinrich Law treated my mother-in-law with unfailing respect and kindness, even through her times of confusion and anger.

In the end we secured a substantial settlement. To be honest, though, the sense of peace that my mother-in-law felt — the sense that the person who struck her had been held accountable, which was demonstrated to her in the settlement she received — is what helped her most. We cannot recommend Heinrich Law highly enough.
