“I had a hysterectomy that caused a life threatening condition because the doctor punctured my bladder during the surgery and sewed me up not knowing it had happened. I was in the recovery room for 2 days when complications from the surgery started to set in. They brought me back into surgery to repair the puncture. After 2 1/2 weeks in the hospital they sent me home. I started having problems again. A urologist found a second hole so I was re-admitted for a third operation.

I was in so much pain I wasn’t aware that the urologist assigned to me was out of my insurance network. I was out of work, and I had to pay the urologist out of my pocket.

My husband insisted I speak with an attorney. I didn’t want to do it at first. He made some calls and more than one person he spoke with recommended he call Simonson Goodman Platzer PC.

When I met with them everyone was so polite. I thought it was amazing that I found a law firm that was willing to work for nothing unless they won my case. They are such phenomenal people. They tell you what they are going to do, and they always do it. They are extremely professional. Very honest.

I never doubted them, not one day, not one minute. They put so much time and effort into my case. They did whatever needed to be done. They even prepared my husband when he was questioned by the defense attorneys. We always felt very protected.

The case took three years before it was settled. We received more than twice as much money as we expected. We all cried the day we heard the settlement. I’m still not 100% healthy. The settlement gives me security if, god forbid, I can’t work. I know what it feels like when you can’t work.

If anybody is looking for a law firm in the Tri-State area they should speak with Simonson Goodman Platzer PC. I work with attorneys in my job and I’ve never seen anyone care for their clients they way they do at Simonson Goodman Platzer PC. I would refer them to anybody.”
