This is a video of Heather, a car accident victim from Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, who describes the traumatic and painful experience of being rear-ended in a crash so badly, that she needed emergency surgery on her neck. Heather discusses her experience with her law firm, Michigan Auto Law, and how her personal injury attorney Steven Gursten supported and protected her throughout the experience by obtaining a settlement large enough to provide for her care and pain and suffering; by communicating with her in a thorough, responsive and caring manner; and by holding her insurance company accountable for the No-Fault medical benefits she was owed in her lawsuit.

Here’s what Heather says: “I was stopped at a red light. And, out of nowhere, I was rear-ended at about 50 miles an hour. I needed to get a lawyer. I went to one of my close family friends, who happens to be a partner at one of the largest defense firms in the Detroit area. He told me that Steven Gursten was the best. My first impression of Michigan Auto Law was that everyone was very laid back, warm and friendly. I felt comfortable there right away. In my car accident, I broke my neck and damaged both my shoulders and my jaw; resulting in multiple surgeries to fuse my neck. I was ultimately fighting my own insurance company because the individual that hit me didn’t have good insurance. If it wasn’t for Steve, on the phone with them every single day, I sometimes wonder if I’d even be where I’m at right now. Not only did Steve answer my questions, but he answered all of my family’s questions and concerns. I’ve referred him to strangers already. I’m more than satisfied with the resolution of my case. Steve went out of his way to try to get to know you on a personal level, so he could fight for you, and your well-being, not just the case.”
