Make no mistake, were I or "a loved one" in a wreck, I would expect the insurance company to pay a fair settlement. If they didn't, I too, would hire an attorney (hopefully one with some class) to ethically represent my rights. We also have a family member badly injured in an accident. Visiting him in the hospital helped me understand the necessity for "pain and suffering" compensation. I have battled with insurance companies before and make no attempt to portray them as angels. That said, our family has also been treated first class by an auto insurance agency after an accident at our fault. In another wreck, we were informed that the driver of the other vehicle was seeing a chiropractor and had hired an attorney in attempt to recover lost wages, medical bills, etc. I didn't see the other vehicle in the wreck, but based on the account retold by my ever-honest husband, my gut says scam.
I have one fun dream. Wouldn't it be intriguing to hear how much the attorney got from each case that he plasters on his ads? "MB got me 1.4 million and I paid him over $400,000!" Oh oh oh, there is so much more I could say, but negativity feeds on negativity. It's time for me to let it go and focus on something more fun...College football. Go Gators!
