Description of service

I had been in a car accident and had really hurt my back. I was hit from behind at a fairly high speed. I kept going to an orthopedic doctor for many months. The other driver was at fault and his insurance company acknowledged this. My bills were growing, so I decided to see a lawyer who specialized in persoanl injury. He felt that I was really hurt and needed to keep going to the doctor, getting treatments and staying on all the different medicines that were prescribed to me. The attorney felt that we could get a good settlement from his insurance. After several months, my attorney attempted to settle the case, but the insurance company decided not to offer one and instead we were going to go to court. Not what I expected! I had to settle for $15,000.00 instead of a much larger amount.

Review of Service

I feel that my attorney did not look out for my best interest. He kept telling me that we should accept the small settlement that they finally offered, which was $15,000. He said if we went to court we could lose. He kept telling me that so, of course, I was affraid to take a chance. I knew that I should have received a much larger settlement, but without the confidence of my attorney, what could I do?


Make sure that you pick the right attorney. I thought that this one was good, but at the end, he was pretty bad. I don't feel that he represented my interests, just his own and wanted to settle this case right now. Ask for some references and talk to those people before agreeing to anything. I wound up with only $10,000 after paying my attorney $5,000.00.
