An Oakland Traumatic Injury Lawyer
The first moments of a car crash are scary — the screeching tires, the sound of the impact of steel on steel. The aftermath can be even scarier, especially if you’ve suffered injuries that will have long-term consequences for your mobility and quality of life.
You may be out of work for months. With severe trauma such as a brain injury or spinal cord injury, you may not be able to return to work. Yet you still need to provide for your family. The Law Office of Ron Maidenberg is here to help.
A broken leg sustained in a car accident is one thing. The loss of your fingers or toes is another. You may suffer disfigurement from “road rash” after a motorcycle accident. A neck injury can cause problems long after you’ve left the hospital. You may have hearing loss, blindness or paralysis. A brain injury can be more severe, with loss of cognitive function.
State Disability Payments May Not Be Enough
The California Employment Development Department handles disability payments. At slightly over half of your earnings, it’s a help, but definitely not what you’re used to bringing home. What’s more, the benefits run out after a year. It can be a struggle to pay your hospital and rehabilitation bills.
If your insurance company balks at paying your bills, you need an attorney who is experienced in handling traumatic injury claims. Ron Maidenberg will help you work out a strategy to get the assistance to which you may be entitled.
The First Consultation Is Free
If you or a family member has suffered a traumatic injury and the insurance company won’t play nice, contact the Law Office of Ron Maidenberg. We’ll evaluate your case free of charge and outline the next steps in your recovery.
