ANOTHER WIN FOR PANISH, SHEA & BOYLE — With Help From Attorneys’ Edge Productions
War Vet Loses His Freedom On An Orange County Bus
Kenneth Bertsch thought he had faced his toughest battles in the skies above Vietnam. The war hero had survived roughly 200 missions searching for enemy hideouts. Later, at age 59, Kenneth battled his way back from a stroke that had paralyzed the right side of his body. He celebrated the end of rehab by driving his wife Lynn on a cross-country road trip.
“He said sell the house and buy an RV, Lynn said. “So we bought an RV. We went around and all over.”
Even a hip replacement, at age 74, couldn’t keep Kenneth down. He learned to walk with a cane and he often took Orange County buses, driving his motorized scooter up the bus ramp.
“I’d go different places,” Kenneth said. “I’d drive up. Park my
scooter and they’d they’d strap me in.”
At least he did – until the day that a careless bus driver, hired by a county contractor, failed to properly secure Kenneth’s scooter.
At age 75, the war vet lost his independence in a horrific incident caught on several of the bus’ surveillance cameras. As the bus
driver made a wide left turn, Kenneth crashed to the floor in his scooter, smashing his head through the bus door’s glass window.
“I don’t remember tipping over,” Kenneth said. “When I came to,
I could see the outside of the bus.
Kenneth suffered severe pain and blunt head trauma. His right leg was shattered just below his recent hip transplant. Surgeons had to insert wires into Kenneth’s leg to hold his fractured bone in place.
“It was pretty deflating,” son Craig, recalled. “We had already gone through the hip replacement and all the recovery prior, all the emotion that came with that.”
The Bertchs’ attorney, Robert Glassman of Panish, Shea and Boyle, hired Attorneys’ Edge Productions to produce a settlement documentary that would bring the Bertschs’ case to life for the defense. Our video crew found that, nearly a year since the incident and despite weeks of grueling rehab, Kenneth Bertsch still could not walk or even stand. He now needed round the clock care. He and Lynn had been forced into assisted living where they shared one room.
“I try my best to keep him comfortable, Lynn said through her tears, “That’s the whole thing, to keep him comfortable.”
The room had a small bathroom. It was too small, we learned, for attendants to lift the 200-pound man off the toilet. They had to put him on a porta-potty in the couple’s open room. Before the incident, Kenneth could easily take showers by himself. Now, Lynn had to give him sponge baths. The once-active senior had lost both his freedom and his dignity.
“It makes me feel bad, Kenneth said sadly, “I’m not as good as I used to be.”
Perhaps hardest of all, after 50 years of marriage, Kenneth’s severe injuries kept the couple from sharing the same bed. Both were afraid that Lynn might accidentally bump him.
“What is life without intimacy?” Lynn asked. “Sleeping together, hugging each other?”
Attorney Glassman gives the Attorneys’ Edge team high marks for handling the shoot with the proper sensitivity.
“They made our clients feel at ease and comfortable before shooting and then effectively captured the essence of their pain and suffering through video, photographs and interviews,” Glassman says.
The team also interviewed Life Care planner, Kelly Nassar. She had designed a plan to improve the couple’s quality of life. It included, “a caregiver to assist him,” Nassar told us, “preferably in the couple’s own apartment” as well as a hoyer lift, roll-in shower chair and valet seat to lift Kenneth in and out of his
Attorneys’ Edge crafted the interviews and video together with photos, surveillance tape and graphics to create a powerful and compelling documentary. We showed how happy the couple were before the incident, the ordeal that Kenneth endured and the suffering they were going through because of the defendant’s negligence.
Says Glassman, “Christina and her team made our clients’ story come alive with their video documentary.”
Most importantly, Mr. Glassman reached a solid settlement that helped improve the quality of the Bertschs’ lives.
“I have no doubt Christina’s documentary helped us achieve a favorable result for our clients, Glassman says. “I highly recommend her services to any trial lawyer looking for inspiration in telling the client’s story. “
