As my case comes to a close I wanted to take a moment and say thank you for everything Allen and Allen and your team did for me.
Flashback over four years ago—I had lost my job in this crazy economy and while shopping at a retail establishment I tripped on a cot blindly placed under a table. Not only did I trip but I went flying coming down on my knees and to protect my head I went stiffed armed with my arms in front of me. As I tried to get up I realized my shoulder was dislocated, I was rushed to the emergency room.
When returning to my home I had a feeling what the end result of this would be — surgery. I contacted multiple law firms in Richmond but each and every one asked did you take pictures and get names—“no I didn’t take pictures and no I didn’t get names-my shoulder was traumatically dislocated and the pain was so intense I was either going to pass out or get sick. I was more concerned about getting to the emergency room.”
Allen and Allen was the only law firm to agree to represent me with my personal injury. I knew I was in good hands when my orthopedic surgeon also recommended Allen and Allen and specifically you to me. What seemed like something simple-a dislocated shoulder-turned into two surgeries on my left shoulder, a labrum repair on my right shoulder, over six months of physical therapy and an entire year of unemployment.
My settlement won’t ever make my left shoulder stable, it won’t mend all the emotional turmoil of that unpredictable year but it will at least allow me to get on with my life.
I know when Allen and Allen agreed to represent me it wasn’t going to be an easy case due to the laws of Virginia but sometimes the right thing to do isn’t always the easiest thing to do. I don’t know what my life would be like had Allen and Allen not agreed to take on this very difficult case. I only wish when this initially happened I had gone to you first because in my mind when it comes to personal injury you want a fighter on your side not a law firm looking to take on just the easy cases.
I will never forget what you and your team were able to do on my behalf.
