Your genuine love, caring and support made it possible for us to continue to live our lives.
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 I 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.
