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.

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.

Convincing A Stubborn Client To Accept A Settlement Offer Rather Than Going To Court

Talking a stubborn client into accepting a settlement offer

Many clients that I have represented have never been in an automobile accident or had a personal injury prior to contacting me. They are relying on my expertise and knowledge to guide them through the process. Usually, they will defer to my opinions about most matters about their case with one exception, whether to settle the claim or file a lawsuit. 

Dealing With Non-Standard Insurance Companies

Non-standard insurance companies

While there are many highly rated, good quality auto insurance companies out there, there are equally as many, if not more, sub or non-standard ones out there as well. These non-standard companies exist for several different reasons. As a consumer, be aware, because as the old adage goes, you get what you pay for!
