For example, someone who has suffered a severe injury which requires them to use a wheelchair may develop secondary infections, pneumonia, and other complications because they are immobilized in a wheelchair. Someone who has suffered a back injury may sustain a secondary injury or illness if they fall down due to their back injury and re-injure themselves.

He cares about helping and doing what is right for people and his community. And he is not afraid to fight against those who do wrong or against threats to our world. He is fluent in Spanish as well. Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
