I was rear ended by a limo driver in June of 2012. The policy holder of the limo fraudulently obtained insurance [reported it was a private, NOT FOR HIRE vehicle]: after the collision claim was settled the at fault insured was cancelled and my uninsured motorist coverage took over.
I ultimately had a rotary cuff surgery, missed several months of work in recovery, then had to have another surgery on my hand – all related to this claim (over $50,000.) [over a 20 month span.] My employer's insurance policy paid all medical and surgical claims and came after me to reimburse with any settlement from the UIM Coverage. I received short and long term disability benefits (over $80,000.) Both the Medical and the Disability Insurance Companies thought they should get some reimbursement from the UIM.
My auto coverage insurance company thought that I was not due the total benefit of $50,000. In UIM coverage because they seemed to think the accident was not severe enough.
Jim Stewart not only got auto coverage to pay the full $50,000; but, made it possible for me NOT TO HAVE TO REIMBURSE THE MEDICAL OR DISABILITY INSURANCE COMPANY ONE RED CENT. And, I have not heard a word from them since...
This man is a Super “Pit Bull” Attorney who will protect your interest the fullest extent. I have been very pleased and so has everyone I have referred to Jim over the last 12 years that I have known him.
Without a doubt, if you want to keep what is yours, what you have coming to you, and stop the competing companies from grabbing all the benefits you have been paying for and rightfully deserve, Jim Stewart is the person to trust your case to .
He is simply the best!
Philip Brown, Car accident Attorney
Jim has been a mediator for a number of years now and has helped successfully mediate several matters for my firm over the years. Knowledgeable, professional, friendly and outstanding at what he does, it is perhaps his genuinely friendly nature and ability to remember one's name that matters most to me. Combine his knowledge and ability with those terrific traits and you have not only a fine man but one who is an excellent go between in resolving disputes. I recommend his services to anyone without reservation.
