It can be a tough way to make a living. I’m actually a big fan of lawyer jokes and slurs, but I’ve also always objected to the label “ambulance chaser” and the like. Are there lawyers who pay staff in hospitals to sign up injury victims? There may be, I don’t know, and I don’t know of any.
What I’ve seen in my practice is that people sustain legitimate, serious personal injuries in car crashes and automobile accidents every day.
When that happens as the result of another’s negligence, the court system calls this a “motor-tort”. The law allows the victim to be "made whole" for what has happened to them.
I help those individuals recover what they deserve.
What I also see is that insurance companies consistently
- question the propriety of medical treatment
- deny payment for medical treatment
- and generally question the nature, extent, or existence of personal injury.
I see that people need help in negotiating these cases, and, when that fails, getting the cases into court, and letting a jury or a judge determine if someone is injured, and how much that personal injury is worth.
