Overtreatment For A Personal Injury Claim

Treating too much with a doctor for a personal injury claim

One of the first questions a new client usually asks is, “How long will this whole process take?” Unfortunately, there is no exact answer for that question. Some people respond quickly to medical treatment, while others take longer to heal. Some insurance companies settle their claims speedily, others drag their claims out in effort to hold on to their money as long as they possibly can. The average case that I handle with soft tissue injuries generally settles somewhere between 4 and 8 months from the date of the injury unless of course the client gets caught up in overtreatment.

Why To Have Your Clients Get Their Own Medical Records

Saving money for your clients by having them obtain their own medical records

Often times I will ask my clients to get me their medical records either from a hospital, clinic or radiology facility. While I do not like to inconvenience my clients, this practice can often save the client anywhere from twenty five dollars up to several hundreds of dollars in the long run. Medical providers are now charging ridiculous rates to copy and mail out their records. While they are regulated by the state as to how much they can legally charge, these fees are always much higher than anyone would expect to obtain their medical records.

Is My Car Totaled? And What Does That Mean?

Facts about what it means when your car is declared a total loss

Often times when people are involved in a bad car accident, it is possible that your car could be a total loss. What exactly does that mean? Well, it means that the cost to fix your car exceeds the current book value of your car.

Speeding And Traffic Tickets- What Should You Do?

What to do when you receive a speeding or traffic citation

Too often I speak with people who have recently received a speeding or traffic citation and when I ask them what they did with it, the most common response is, “I just wrote a check and sent it in.” This is the absolute worst thing that you can do!! When you pay a ticket like that, it goes on your record as a conviction, which gets reported to the Secretary of State, which your auto insurance company sees, which ultimately raises your insurance premium. Further, if you get three convictions on your record within a year, your license is suspended!

UBER & LYFT vs. Taxi Cabs-Which Is Better For The Drivers?

Do drivers do better driving UBER and LYFT than they do driving taxicabs?

UBER & LYFT vs. Taxi Cabs-Which Is Better For The Drivers?
Often I am asked the question, “Do drivers do better with UBER or LYFT than they do just driving a taxi?” Not such an easy question to answer and it seems as if both have their ups and downs.
