At the end of 2013, I was involved in a three-car accident while stopped at a red light. An SUV hit the car behind me and the force of the collision drove that car into mine. My car was damaged a bit, but I suffered some whiplash and headaches for which I went to Stanford Hospital to get checked out. Fortunately, I had insurance which covered most of the hospital visit but I still had to pay out of pocket and I ended up missing a few days of work as well. The other side’s insurance company felt I was not injured at all and refused to compensate me for anything except the repairs to my car. I tried to find legal representation, but no one would take my case as they didn’t feel it was worth their time. Fortunately, one of the firms which wouldn’t take my case referred me to Eric Gruber.
From the very beginning, Eric was a pleasure to deal with. He’s bright, personable, very knowledgeable about personal injury cases and he laid out all of my options. I met him near his office and we went over the details, and then he was on the case. He kept in constant communication via phone, e-mail and text messaging so I never felt he wasn’t giving my case the attention it needed. Even when he was going to be out of town he let m know ahead of time and was willing to answer any questions I had. The process took about six months, which apparently is fairly standard in these cases, and ended with a nice settlement on my behalf. Eric did a great job negotiating with the insurance company to reduce the amount of the settlement they would receive and I was EXTREMELY happy with the result.
I certainly hope I never need Eric’s services again, but if I do, I will not hesitate to give him a call. He was the first lawyer I’ve ever had to engage on my behalf and he couldn’t have been more perfect.
Thank you Eric Gruber!!!
