Daño nervioso – head trauma can damage nerve cells in the brain.  This often hinders the brains ability to communicate body functions, resulting in: paralysis of facial muscles, inability to move eye muscles, loss of smell, vision or facial sensation, or inability to swallow.

Opinión de un cliente de DTLA

"¡Farid fue genial! Mi novio y yo lo contratamos en abril de 2017, ya que fuimos golpeados por detrás en la I101 . Nuestro coche fue total y estábamos gravemente heridos. Por recomendación de un familiar, nos arriesgamos y nos pusimos en contacto con Farid para que nos ayudara con el proceso. Después de todo el calvario, lo último que queríamos hacer era lidiar con las compañías de seguros."
