Joseph Connell* was a former commercial business and real estate broker, who, as he prepared for retirement, enjoyed traveling with his wife and spending time with his children.
One evening, Joseph and his wife drove across town to spend an evening visiting with friends. On their way home, a man driving a stolen car smashed into Joseph’s car at high speed on the highway. Joseph suffered a brain injury and damage to his spine in the collision. More concerned with caring for his wife who was also injured, Joseph rejected the ambulance attendants request that he go to hospital.
Over the course of the next few days Joseph noticed changes in his ability to think and his emotions. Joseph suffered difficulty remembering appointments, difficulty remembering people’s names and he would forget to turn off the stove after cooking. Joseph became irritable, frustrated and depressed.
Joseph experienced no success working with several lawyers in the first five years following his injury. His benefits were cut off and the defendant offered him little compensation to settle his claim.
Ultimately, Joseph transferred his file to the Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm. Brennan Kahler and his team worked hard and had Joseph assessed by the finest medical experts in the country. These efforts resulted in Joseph being designated “Catastrophically Impaired”. Joseph received access to the considerable medical benefits and attendant care he required.
The Kahler Personal Injury Law Firm’s efforts earned Joseph nearly one million dollars in compensation.
