    Poor Suzy She is in the hospital fighting her body She has sickle cell disease It is where the sickle cells break apart and die, leaving the person with a shortage of red blood cells Suzy s mother, June has been by Suzy s side every moment The doctor comes to check on Suzy The doctor leaves the room to talk to June when suddenly there is a scream Suzy is in her bed looking like Linda Blair from the Exorcist The next thing, Suzy is confined to a wheelchair for life June filed a malpracti Poor Suzy She is in the hospital fighting her body She has sickle cell disease It is where the sickle cells break apart and die, leaving the person with a shortage of red blood cells Suzy s mother, June has been by Suzy s side every moment The doctor comes to check on Suzy The doctor leaves the room to talk to June when suddenly there is a scream Suzy is in her bed looking like Linda Blair from the Exorcist The next thing, Suzy is confined to a wheelchair for life June filed a malpractice suit on the hospital and the doctor and has been fighting it for six years Tug is an attorney He has been given orders to shut down June and Suzy s case as there is no case For Tug, he believes this is going to be a quick open and close case This is until Tug sees Suzy and gets to know her Now Tug is fighting for Suzy.Wow Mr Siegel really knocks it out of the park with Suzy s Case I like Tug s brassy, cocky attitude Although, I must admit that in the beginning, I thought he was a jackass All he saw when he first saw Suzy was a pile of money Luckily, Tug turned a new leaf and got to know Suzy the sch weet girl I dare you not to fall in love with Suzy Suzy s mother, June is a firecracker and has the balls to back up her attitude I like when she got mad that her ghetto side would appear June and Tug paired nicely together I actually did learn from this book I learned about sickle cell disease and how the whole malpractice suit works Not that I ever hope to find myself in a malpractice suit as no one really wins in my opinion Yeah the victim may win a boatload of money but what did they have to lose Mr Siegel infused his knowledge of being a personal injury and malpractice attorney into this book The way that Tug got his evidence and handled the court scene is something that only a professional would know and can share Suzy s Case is a winner It is just what the doctor ordered

    Originally posted at in a quick, conversational style, Suzy s Case is engaging and unpredictable The main character, Tug Wyler, is an attorney but hardly your garden variety type In Suzy s Case he hastily reveals himself as a quick witted off beat investigator If anyone calls Wyler Mr Sensitivity you can be sure they are being sarcastic He does once in a while let on that he can be a touch soft hearted, but in the main he s tough, sar Originally posted at in a quick, conversational style, Suzy s Case is engaging and unpredictable The main character, Tug Wyler, is an attorney but hardly your garden variety type In Suzy s Case he hastily reveals himself as a quick witted off beat investigator If anyone calls Wyler Mr Sensitivity you can be sure they are being sarcastic He does once in a while let on that he can be a touch soft hearted, but in the main he s tough, sarcastic and politically incorrect Ok, possibly he has a right to be we find him going from worrying over a client s injuries to in rather macabre yet resigned fashion planning a funeral for the as yet living.Repeat Suzy s Case is unpredictable.Admittedly, I found the verb tenses lack of harmony distracting as well as some seriously long sentences Style not incorrect but occasionally annoying Mr Siegel tests out things like making a list literally, 1 2 3 of items the main character is thinking and then also attempting to show a discussion via computer, using a different font Although it does rather fit the conversational tone, it is also simply disruptive to the flow of the story.Events are unpredictable, conversations are combative, some situations are downright heartbreaking There is something of the hard boiled style here yet there isDescriptions exist, yet contribute to the rapid forward pace It is ultimately engaging and interesting, and though I wanted to dislike it, I sensed this book like the main character just doesn t care what I think And that is part of its charm.If you grab this book, it will grab you back More than worth the read

    This book sounded sort of interesting but I wasn t really sure if I would like it or not but I decided to take a chance when asked to review it It was surprising entertaining and witty, so I am glad I took a chance on it.You can tell that the author knows his stuff in this book as he is an attorney an it really brings the personal injury law to life Tug is one of those guys that you want on your side but you really better have a case because he might be gruff and loud mouthed, but he is honest This book sounded sort of interesting but I wasn t really sure if I would like it or not but I decided to take a chance when asked to review it It was surprising entertaining and witty, so I am glad I took a chance on it.You can tell that the author knows his stuff in this book as he is an attorney an it really brings the personal injury law to life Tug is one of those guys that you want on your side but you really better have a case because he might be gruff and loud mouthed, but he is honest He doesn t take on fake cases, he takes on the real deal So he was going to tell Suzy s mother that she had no case because the doctor for Sickle Cell told him there was no case The mother June on the other hand wouldn t let him off so easily.June is an awesome mother and she is very dedicated to her child She knows that something bad went down with her child and she isn t letting the hospital off the hook She also will not let Tug off and makes him go to the medical exam and that is where things start turning around for Tug, he sees Suzy as a person not just a paycheck It is also where he realizes there isto his case that meets the eye From then on it is all about justice for Suzy s Case and no amount of cover ups will stand in his way as he fights his way through the case Suzy s Case was a very interesting and sometimes fun romp through medical malpractice and I would recommend it to anyone who likes medical or legal thrillers

    You may also read my review here Wyler is a personal injury lawyer who has taken on cases for a high powered criminal attorney, Henry Benson The problem is, part of the deal with taking these cases, is they re sight unseen andoften than not put Tug in unenviable positions with his client Usually these cases involve felons trying to commit insurance fraud, and Tug would rather get reprimanded by the Office of Professional Conduct than represent You may also read my review here Wyler is a personal injury lawyer who has taken on cases for a high powered criminal attorney, Henry Benson The problem is, part of the deal with taking these cases, is they re sight unseen andoften than not put Tug in unenviable positions with his client Usually these cases involve felons trying to commit insurance fraud, and Tug would rather get reprimanded by the Office of Professional Conduct than represent this kind of client However, when Benson hands him Suzy Williams file, he has no idea that this will be a very different kind of case, one that he ll want to see through, even if it destroys his career.Suzy s Case begins with the incident in the hospital that supposedly led to Suzy s current condition, six years later Suzy Williams has sickle cell anemia, which, through complications, has led to her current condition, which is severe cerebral palsy and spastic quadriplegia Also, her intellectual development has been compromised, and she only functions at a 2 year old level The intro read a bit awkwardly to me, but once we got past that and onto Tug s narrative, I was pretty much hooked right away Tug Wyler is middle aged, married with three kids, has a beautiful receptionist that s been with him for 10 years and takes none of his crap , and has an eye for the ladies which he ll never act on, but flirting is certainly not out of the question He s also smart mouthed, rather obnoxious, and funny as hell You d think someone like Tug would be the absolute wrong person to handle a case like Suzy s, but you d be wrong Aside from the smart mouth, Tug s also sharp as a tack, and there s a heart of gold lurking underneath the obnoxious exterior Benson claims that Suzy and her mom June have no case, but Tug believes otherwise, and against all of his better instincts, decides to fight it out as far as he can One of the best moments, and most heartbreaking, is when he goes to the independent exam of Suzy by the doctor hired by the hospital, and Suzy won t open her arms because her scar embarrasses her Tug makes a connection with her, and really sees this beautiful, damaged little girl for the first time not as a paycheck, but as a person He s really sort of built a bit of a wall around him because of what he does and doesn t allow himself to get emotionally involved, and that wall comes down for just a little bit The author knows his stuff, because he s a personal injury attorney himself, and he manages to detail the case and the ins and outs of medical litigation without talking down to his readers or getting bogged down in jargon, and it s actually quite fascinating He also has a gift for some of the funniest dialogue I ve read in a long time, and there were quite a few laugh out loud moments for me I was reminded at times of the Stephanie Plum series which I love , and I can see myself getting as attached to Tug as I am to Stephanie I mean, how can you not love a guy that gets a tingle in his nether regions when he s getting close to a breakthrough on a case There are lots of twists and turns in this one, plenty of thrills, and perfect for when you want something funny in between darker reads This debut is pure fun and I ll look forward to Tug s next case

    At one time I thought I might go to law school its what humanities majors did If I did go, I was sure I d do personal injury law it seemed like a way to write some wrongs and do some good for some people who really needed some help I found that I didn t want to go law school so I didn t take this path, but I still find the whole realm interesting filled as it is with sleazebuckets, people trying to cheat the system, and real victims who are victimized all over again by the veritable armi At one time I thought I might go to law school its what humanities majors did If I did go, I was sure I d do personal injury law it seemed like a way to write some wrongs and do some good for some people who really needed some help I found that I didn t want to go law school so I didn t take this path, but I still find the whole realm interesting filled as it is with sleazebuckets, people trying to cheat the system, and real victims who are victimized all over again by the veritable armies of lawyers that insurance companies and hospitals can send against them.Suzy s Case is a medical legal thriller written by Andy Siegel who is a personal injury lawyer His insider knowledge definitely gives the book a huge leg up Everything that happens in this book feels believable from the tragedy of Suzy, a once highly intelligent child, trapped inside her body after heart failure and loss of oxygen to the brain as a result of a sickle cell crisis It s heartbreaking and it s heartbreaking every time you see the child.Initially our hero, Tug Wyler, gets the case by a referral and is told it s a loser His goal is to get off the case so it gets dismissed But then he meets Suzy and June, Suzy s indomitable mother, and as he digs deeper he finds that he very well may have a huge case and, for once, he might be able to represent some clients who deserve the help and the money that would come with it.I found Suzy s Case funny and readable with just enough suspense to keep the book going I loved all the characters, even our dubious hero who really needs to be taken into hand by someone I hope this is the start of series because if it is it s an awesome beginning A highly entertaining read
