John Suthers did a great job for me.
John was referred to me by my Father and Step-Mother after I was injured in a car accident. He had helped them a few years before and they insisted I call John, even though I don't live in Savannah. (I do live in Georgia) I am so glad they gave me this advice! I have permanent injuries and John and Adam were able to navigate the insurance red tape while I was able to heal. They did a fantastic job , much, much better than I could have done myself. They always called me when something was going on. They took care of everything. If you are in an accident, take my advice and call John Suthers before you deal with the insurance company!
