Christian Alvarado was riding his motorcycle on Highway 61 at about 9:30 p.m. when a car pulled out right in front of him and struck him. Christian was found 300 feet from the intersection where he landed on the median with a badly damaged foot. When Christian looked down and saw how bad his injuries were, he began to go into shock. At that point, witnesses placed him down on the ground and called an ambulance for him.
After arriving at the hospital, Christian went into surgery, and it lasted about four hours. His leg and foot had so many metal rods and pins emanating from them that Christian thought they resembled an Erector Set. He remained in this condition for two months. During that time in the hospital, he needed support from his nurses, the doctors, his family and an attorney.
Christian was aware that motorcycle accidents can be very complicated, so he knew that he needed a lawyer with experience with motorcycle accidents. That is why he decided chose the law firm of Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben.
During his entire ordeal at the hospital, Christian felt that he was being taken care of very well by his attorney. “Working with Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben was amazing. I had originally given Max Hacker a call, one of the attorneys with the firm, and he, basically, held my hand through the whole situation. He came to the hospital immediately, talked to me, you know, found out what happened, found out how I was doing and pretty much told me, ‘I’m going to take care of this part, you work on getting yourself better and getting healed.”
Christian was very impressed with how well his attorney attended to his needs. “I always got my phone calls returned on a prompt basis. Emails were returned right away. I never felt like I was being overlooked. I always felt like I was the one that was most important.”
According to Christian’s aunt, after being injured in a motorcycle accident, you cannot fight for yourself; you need someone to do it for you. Christian found a team who would fight for him; the law firm of Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben. “I didn’t know what I was doing. This was a very serious accident. I didn’t know what type of ramifications that this would have in the future. Because of Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben and their experience in motorcycle accidents, they were able to take care of me in a way that was fair and just.”
“I would recommend Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben to anyone.”
Personal injury attorneys Jim Schwebel and Paul Godlewski are very familiar with motorcycles and riding because they are riders themselves. They understand that motorcycle riders are in a very vulnerable position because a motorcycle does not offer the protection that a motor vehicle does. They know that if you survive, you may be very seriously injured.
The attorneys at Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben understand that many collisions between a motorcyclist and another vehicle are the fault of the other driver. As a matter of fact, 75 percent of these accidents are due to the negligence of the driver of a car, truck or van. Although everyone has the same rights when they are hit by a negligent driver, motorcycle cases are different, and the attorneys at Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben have experience working with these subtle differences.
