On June 17, 2007 my children and I were involved in a horrific and life
changing accident when I was driving a vehicle behind a commercial transport
tractor trailer carrying a load of wooden beams. When the tractor trailer
lost its load of wooden beams, I naturally made an instinctive attempt
to avoid hitting the beams and while doing so swerved my vehicle. My vehicle
then went out of control and “rolled” multiple times ejecting
my three children from the vehicle. Never in my life did I ever imagine
that, in a matter of seconds, all four of us were close to losing our lives.
The injuries that we each suffered were not only traumatic, but life threatening.
While I was hospitalized for two weeks, my children were hospitalized
for up to one month. As a parent, I cannot express the overwhelming feeling
of mental and emotional devastation and a complete sense of helplessness
as I watched my children suffer in pain. At that point in my life, I needed
the best advocate for my family who could handle the legal affairs in
our time of need, so that I could be there for my children. Sean Banafsheh
of Banafsheh, Danesh & Javid was highly recommended to us, and Mr.
Banafsheh immediately took over the legal aspect of our case while allowing
me and my family to start our healing process, in the physical, emotional,
and mental senses.
I suffered a separated acromioclavicular joint in the left shoulder, left
scapula fracture and cornea ulcer and was hospitalized for two weeks.
My oldest child suffered an L-5 burst fracture and wedge fracture of the
T-12 requiring repair and titanium cage, a right ankle fracture, right
elbow avulsion fracture, teeth damage and a torn meniscus and was hospitalized
for 1 month. My middle child suffered a right arm amputation and subarachnoid
hematoma. My youngest child suffered a fractured pelvis, right mid-shaft
humerus fracture, liver laceration and scarring.
Mr. Banafsheh was involved in our lives every day for nearly three years,
extending his heartfelt compassion, counseling, and unconditional guidance
to our family. Mr. Banafsheh addressed not only our legal affairs efficiently
and effectively, but also our personal needs. He went over and beyond
his duties as a lawyer. He became like a member of our family. Not only
was this an amazing gesture extended by Mr. Banafsheh, but exemplified
qualities in an attorney that I have never known before.
As I mentioned, Mr. Banafsheh became a part of our family and to this date,
we are still very close. We as a family, would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Banafsheh
to anyone who is involved in a serious and life altering accident, like
the one me and my family were involved in. I really could never say enough
to express my gratitude for all your help. You truly did go above and
beyond and we will love you always for this. Your genuine love, caring
and support made it possible for us to continue to live our lives.
