Q & A With Bradley I. Kramer, MD, Esq.
Interviewer: Why choose Bradley I. Kramer, MD, Esq.?
Dr. Kramer: I decided to go to law school after medical school so I would be a much more efficient advocate for people, especially those who had their rights in jeopardy from a legal perspective as opposed to a medical perspective.
There are a lot of firms in Los Angeles. There are a lot of firms in California, many of whom are competent to handle all types of catastrophic injury cases, medical malpractice cases, business cases. The thing that sets my firm apart from really just about any other firm in California is that I have both of those degrees. I have a medical degree from the University of Illinois. I graduated from a medical internship program at UCLA, and then I went to Stanford Law School. So the combination of those two degrees really puts me at a unique advantage for looking at accidents, for evaluating them, for looking at the injuries that people suffer in those injuries; and, there are not a lot of attorneys out there that can interpret those injuries the way that I can and get through the medical records as efficiently as I can. (02:56)
I have been practicing law since 2004. That is when I graduated Stanford Law School. I spent a couple of years doing strictly business litigation at some firms in Los Angeles. In 2009 I went out on my own thinking I could help people more where I could determine which cases I wanted to take and how to litigate them. Since that time I have fortunately achieved a couple of awards. I was awarded the Super Lawyers Award three years in a row, twice as a Rising Star, and most recently as a Super Lawyer. I have been asked to join the Trial Lawyers which is an organization that provides recognition of the top one hundred trial lawyers in each state. Within that organization I have also been awarded with the Top Forty Under Forty Award which recognizes the top forty lawyers in each state who are under forty years old. I was also recognized as a Rising Star, and one of the top fifty lawyers in California by the Recorder magazine. It was called “Fifty Lawyers on the Fast Track”. And, I was also nominated as one of the five finalists for the CAALA Rising Star Award which is the consumer attorneys association in Los Angeles which is actually the biggest association of plaintiffs’ attorneys in the entire country.
Interviewer: Why did you choose to focus on personal injury law?
Dr. Kramer: I thought that going into personal injury law there was a unique gap in the services that were provided to individuals who were injured. What I mean by that is you had a group of lawyers that were litigating personal injury cases, and you had a group of doctors that were advocating for those individuals. But, there was no connection between those two disciplines. So, I thought that I could use my skill set very effectively to combine those two disciplines and really provide individuals with a comprehensive strategy that involved both the legal aspects of their case as well as the medical aspects.
Interviewer: What do you find most rewarding about what you do?
Dr. Kramer: There is nothing more satisfying than calling up a client and telling them that all of the injuries they have gone through or that they have sustained, all of the trauma and aggravation they have gone through in connection with an accident, is going to be compensated by somebody. The flip side of that is there is nothing more awful or tragic than having to call a client and tell them that all of their injuries are for naught. No one is going to be compensating them. So, when I can get on a phone and tell a client that I have gotten them X amount of money for their injuries, it oftentimes can change their life. It can change their life in the sense that they can now work. They can now have access to apply for jobs. They can get housing. They can get medical care. And, to give individuals that access when they otherwise would not have it because of the fault of someone else is really something that you take a lot of satisfaction from.
Interviewer: What can you do to make the legal process easier for victims?
Dr. Kramer: What I try to do for my clients when they come into my office is create a comprehensive plan that takes care of them from start to finish. A lot of attorneys out there are able to negotiate the initial settlements with insurance companies, but they do not necessarily have the threat of taking the case all the way to trial. My firm is a trial law office. Meaning we will take the cases that come in from start to finish. So, we will work up the case, we will get the initial documents on file, and we will then litigate those cases all the way through trial until we get our clients appropriate amount of compensation for their injuries.
