How Medicare Ruined One Man's Car Accident Case

A young man was hit by a car while crossing the street. He suffered severe injuries including a fractured femur and the need for tracheostomy. He was in the hospital for 3 1/2 weeks and then sent for rehabilitation therapy. He had been receiving Medicare benefits for an unrelated disability, and Medicare paid for his hospital and medical bills. When the family came to me seeking compensation for this young man’s injuries, he had no idea how Medicare would alter the landscape of his potential lawsuit.

Watch the video to find out how Medicare destroyed his chances of recovering any compensation from this car accident, and the injuries he suffered through no fault of his own.

Gerry is an absolute master at getting you to relax and speak to the camera in such a way that the clients – the potential clients – are going to be receptive to the message that you’re giving them. I decided to use video to market my law firm because YouTube is the second largest video search website on the internet, next to Google. And at some point in time, is probably going to overtake Google. So, I think it’s absolutely critical to have content out there to appeal to potential clients in your practice area. I would go to Gerry Oginski and really learn what a master in this area would do for you. Because it is absolutely clear that Gerry’s understanding of shooting video – in particular for personal injury trial lawyers- is so far beyond anybody else in this area that you would doing yourself a real disservice if you spent your money any other way
