A personal injury lawyer with the law offices of Sean M. Burke in Orange County can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Announcer: The Law Offices of Sean Burke help people all over Southern California. Sean: We specialize in medical malpractice, in personal injury cases, medical device cases, some insurance bad faith cases, and auto accidents, dog bites, that sort of thing. Heather: Each case is given personalized attention. Sean: I would say the most important thing to look for is somebody who's really going to take a personal interest in your case. There are a lot of lawyers out there that handle many, many cases, and a lot of times people become just a number in a law firm. Heather: We spend extra time with them, extra time talking with them on the phone, and we really care about our clients. We have continuing relationships with our clients, long after the cases resolve. It's a beautiful thing when we receive holiday cards in the mail from our clients. Announcer: Attorney Heather Higson and Sean have worked together since the early 2000's. Both have been doing medical malpractice and personal injury work, since the late 1980's. Sean graduated from USC Law, while Heather went to law school at Pepperdine University. Combined they have an almost half century of experience. Sean: It's just important to have somebody who knows what they're doing, and also important to have an attorney on your side, who's known to the other side, who's known to the insurance companies, who's known to the defense attorneys, who can deal with them and who they respect. Announcer: Sean says he intentionally kept his firm small, so that his team could provide personal attention to cases. Sean: Well, that's one of the more satisfying things I think, that we can do is you take somebody who's seriously injured, whose family has been impacted by it, whose maybe their earnings aren't going to be the same as they used to be. To be able to take a situation like that and make sure that you cover it, cover all of their expenses and cover for all their future expenses, it's very satisfying to know that you've taken care of a family. Heather: I find it rewarding, in the sense of the opportunity to help people work through a particularly difficult time in their life, sometimes the worst time of their life, and help those people to find the resources and compensation to, in a sense, make them whole again.
