Matthew Consky Testimonials
“In October, 2008, my husband was rear-ended by a garbage truck, while stopped. Owning his own business, and being the main supporter of our household, my husband was not able to take time off work to recover. Within a few short months, letters from the insurance company of the garbage company starting coming, stating that he needed to “prove” he needed the treatments, they saw no reason for treatments, and were talking legal terms, as well as “lawsuit”. Not having had gone through any of this before, we decided to contact a lawyer to look after this for us, we chose Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm based on a recommendation. Dean was able to continue to receive treatments. He was sent by both parties to many specialists to try to determine exactly what kind of damage had been done to him. However, he did not get better, and by midyear 2010, he realized he had no choice but to give up his company as he was no longer able to perform his work duties due to the injury. We continued on as best as we could with the help of a lawyer at Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm. Matt was simply amazing! He was pleasant, outgoing, extremely determined and motivated to help us! We felt that he new the pain we were going through. I don’t know where we would be now had we not had Matt’s help! Every phone call, every email sent, was replied to promptly by Matt. The assistants helped Matt and us to make sure that they had what they needed in order to be able to really help us. The confidence radiated like it never had before! We felt nothing but gratitude and relief! When we had to meet with the lawyers and insurance company, despite every trick they tried, Matt was able to help Dean remain calm, and reassured him once again that this was just a trick. After only a few months with Matt, our case was over…Dean was able to obtain a settlement to pull us up a bit and put us back on track. Although Dean will never be the same again, and will always suffer the pain from the accident, this helped Dean gain back his self-confidence. He will never get back what he lost, financially or health-wise, but with his renewed self-confidence, thanks mainly to Matt, he is now managing the pain and we are managing financially. Since first meeting Matt, we knew we were suddenly in extremely good hands, and he pulled through and proved our instincts to be correct. I really don’t know where we’d be without your help Matt! Thank you again! You’ve been a God-send to us, working a miracle!”
