Serious injury can occur from a car accident

Car accidents are often caused when a driver is distracted or is simply being reckless and neglectful. It can happen without any warning at all. One minute you are at a stop light and the next, a vehicle has plowed into you and you are injured, sometimes quite seriously. This type of crash can result in a long rehabilitation process that may take months and even years to make right.

“When I was hurt on the job I had nowhere to turn for help. I had been working as an electrician’s helper, but my boss was not insured and he had no license to do electrical work. I had just had a new baby girl and Con Ed was going to shut off my lights. A friend told me to call O’Dwyer & Bernstien. They took action right away and got great money for my case. ODB helped me get my life back on track. I will always be grateful.”
