A man was severely injured when the driver of the car in which he was a passenger slammed the car into a telephone pole while intoxicated. The car burst into flames. Fortunately emergency personnel were able to douse the flames before they engulfed the car. After being Life-Flighted by helicopter to a hospital, the firm’s client received extensive treatment for his injuries. Because he spoke only Polish, he could not communicate with hospital personnel without a translator.
When he was released from the hospital, the man came to Zajac & Padilla to prosecute his case. Dominik Rostocki, Esq., who is fluent in Polish, bridged the communication gap and was able to discuss the details of the case with him in Polish. Zajac & Padilla took the case and obtained a settlement to the full extent of the driver’s insurance.
