I, Scott Johni, have been the victim of another's carelessness. In 1986, I was traveling home from work one evening when a reckless driver struck the left front quarter panel of the driver's side of my car, forcing me off the road. My car was propelled into a telephone pole nearly cutting my vehicle in half just behind the drivers seat.

I suffered a broken neck (C-2 fracture) and, as a result, had to have my C1-C4 vertebrae fused and my neck wired back together. This collision caused me to be temporarily paralyzed. My right lung collapsed, ligaments were torn in my right leg, and I had two tracheotomies. My medical bills were over $100,000.00.

Unfortunately, the driver who hit me not only did not have any insurance, but also had multiple prior driving violations on his driving record.

After the collision, I underwent extensive physical therapy and was told I was very lucky to be alive. I realized at that point in my life what type of law I wanted to practice — personal injury. back view (click to enlarge)


As fate would have it, while going to work one morning in September of 1997 I was sitting in line behind multiple cars waiting for a red light to change when i was rear-ended by a van. Again, the driver had no insurance.

Fortunately, I had uninsured motorists coverage (UM/UIM). This collision caused additional injuries to my neck requiring surgical intervention; I had my C5-C7 vertebrae fused and a plate with pedicle screws placed in my neck for stability. Due to these injuries, I have even less range-of-motion in my neck.

My dedication comes from surviving two automobile collisions. Those collisions changed my life and provided me with the desire and dedication to help victims of other's carelessness.
