When someone is injured they often feel vulnerable. This vulnerability can make them easy prey for both insurance companies and attorneys. One sees a cheap settlement and the other sees a quick pay day. We had someone who experienced this recently and their story is very telling.
A really nice lady was badly injured in a car accident while stopped at a red light. The other driver’s insurance company wanted to settle right away and offered her a pittance to sign away her rights. Wisely she declined. She sought the advice of an attorney thinking they would look after and defend her rights. After all that’s what their television ad says they’ll do. During her 20 minute “consultation” the information they wanted most was the name of the other driver and the other driver’s insurance company. The T.V. Lawyers didn’t spend much time asking about her injuries and wanted her to sign their retainer agreement. She told them she would think it over.
This lady called our office after a friend suggested it. One of our plaintiff only attorneys sat down with her and actually had a “consultation” about what happened. We discussed the facts surrounding her case, her injuries, how her injuries are impacting her and her daily routine, the impact of her injuries on her family and her job, how long these are likely to impact her life, the care she is getting to help with her injuries and the disposition of her car. When we had that information we spent time answering her questions, explaining the process, explaining what her responsibilities are and possibly the most important aspect we explained is that she can only settle her case one time. Once we knew the long term impact on her health and her life we would then work to settle her case. While settling a case after uncovering facts takes longer the result is worth the wait. You only get one chance to be fairly compensated for someone else’s negligence!
We represent people who are injured because of the careless and reckless acts of others. At the end of the day your case can only be settled one time and you need to know all of the facts beforehand. The reason that insurance companies have paid our clients in excess of $130,000,000.00 is that we get the facts and are not intimidated at the prospect of going to trial when they refuse to follow the law. We help with serious issues that require serious representation. We are the Law Offices of Guenard & Bozarth. We have over 80 years of experience in our plaintiff’s only law firm.
