As a top-rated injury lawyer with 20+ years of experience, I would like to share a few case studies for claims I handled to provide some perspective on why we are different and what we can do for you. This particular case study is ongoing but promises to deliver a very favorable injury settlement.
Overview of Case
Our client was riding his bike home when he entered a crosswalk late at night. A car turned to the right and struck him in the crosswalk. He fell over and broke his left hand, which required urgent surgery.
Challenges Faced & Solutions Provided
The car that struck the client was a ZipCar and the driver said he had no insurance. We investigated that issue and found their insurance and reported the claim. Our client was told he needed surgery when he went to urgent care the day after the accident.
He did not know a surgeon and did not know how insurance worked in an injury claim. This is something we find with many of our clients. We always try to help our clients who may be unaware of the standard procedures or unable to receive the medical attention they require due to a lack of funds or a lack of knowing how the claim process works, for example. I was able to get two surgeons to see him the next week, and he chose the one he liked best and had surgery.
Measurable Results Of The Legal Service Provided
Our firm managed to give our client peace of mind without having to worry about his bills being paid, and without insurance companies calling him incessantly. He was also able to have surgery within the week from a prominent local surgeon. Additionally, ZipCar accepted the claim and coverage and took fault on behalf of its driver.
It is best to treat before you settle and our insight and experience will navigate the challenges so you can get all the care you need without worrying about the medical bills.
Insurance Will Pay Its Maximum Policy to the Client
Insurance companies look to blame others if given the chance. In a pedestrian (and bicycle) claim, it is critical to get the facts of the accident straight and clear. We take this seriously because it changes the outcome of the case. I (Dax Jones) met our client on a Saturday in the office. We discussed the facts of the accident and provided follow-up calls and texts to ensure that the facts of the accident would be correctly stated when he completed the civilian traffic report. Small details matter.
This allowed us to prove the driver was at fault even though the police did not come to the scene. Details make a difference. ZipCar recently offered to pay its maximum policy limit and we are now pursuing additional insurance proceeds. This case is ongoing.
