Pedestrian v. car accidents are a common occurrence, and they typically require an experienced attorney to help them have the best possible outcome. Our firm has a Perfect 10 AVVO Rating and has received numerous awards. We believe this is because we always go the extra mile for each of our clients, including providing each client with my personal cell phone number.
I (Dax Jones) would like to share a case study in which The Jones Firm represented a client and managed to secure a significant settlement.
Overview of Case
The client was waiting at a bus stop when a careless driver drove over the curb and struck him.
Challenges Presented by Pedestrian Accident Case
Our client did not have a primary care physician and did not know where to go for treatment. Additionally, our client had no insurance and could not afford needed medical care. We were able to establish a care team that treated him and waited for payment until we were able to settle his injury claim.
At the end of care, the client was not fully healed, but the doctors had nothing more to offer him. We were able to have him see a medical expert to document his ongoing level of pain and limitation, so we could represent that to the insurance company and get them to increase their offer to him.
We Pursue Higher Compensation Claims For Our Clients
Diligent and compliant care is very important, and we have medical providers who can see clients all over King and Snohomish counties and wait for payment. But the treatment does not always heal all injuries.
At The Jones Firm, we have experts who will see a client and help document their ongoing injuries when doctors don’t have other treatment options. This allows us to pursue higher compensation for our clients.
Significant Claim Settlement Obtained
We were able to establish a medical provider network that allowed our client to get all the care he needed without worrying about medical costs. At the end of care, we were able to document his ongoing pain and limitation and use that in the negotiations with the insurance company.
We successfully held them accountable to pay 7x his medical bills while working with the providers to reduce their medical bills, so our client received a significant amount of money in his pocket.
