Most Motor Vehicle Accidents are caused by negligent drivers, drivers who run red lights or disregard stop signs. However, there are other potential hazards on the road that can result in motor vehicle accidents such as road defects, construction activity on the roadway or confusing signs.  We can begin an immediate investigation into the accident and make sure that all of the required paperwork is filed in a timely fashion.

Injuries While a Passenger on a Bus

I was very  satisfied with the way Mr. Rutman represented me and my case.  From the start, he was very accommodating and drove to New Jersey to meet me.  He helped me find medical providers, he helped me obtain lost wages and he even helped me obtain a loan through a funding company.  On the other side, the defendant did everything they could to delay the case.  But Mr. Rutman stayed focused on my case.

I found Mr. Rutman to be patient and seasoned. I was worried that the insurance company big wigs had more resources than we did but Mr. Rutman was a silent killer. I was truly impressed. I also appreciated the fact that Mr. Rutman broke down attorney jargon for me in layman’s terms.  The case went to mediation and all the other passengers who made a claim settled at the mediation.  But Mr. Rutman told me that my offer was not enough and we did not settle.  Mr. Rutman traveled to California to do a videotaped deposition of my treating doctor to prepare for trial. The case was eventually resolved after jury selection for an amount more than double of what was offered at the mediation.

Mr. Rutman and the law firm made me feel at ease and that my family & I could trust them.  The law office team was personable and always easy to reach.  I highly recommend Popick & Rutman.
