I focus exclusively on car accident cases. I believe that an attorney should add value to your case, not just evaluate the value of your case. One of the most important ways an attorney can add value is in minimizing the time to completion. With the right attorney, your case can take less than half the time or even one-third the time it would otherwise take.
This means a case that would have otherwise taken 12-18 months can be, and should be, finished in 4 months to 6 months.
In personal injury cases, your attorney needs to understand medical treatments like a doctor understands medical treatments. This is the key to effective negotiating with the insurance company. This means your attorney needs to have the understanding and specialization of both a doctor and a laywer at once. He also needs to understand insurance protocols. Then he can advise you well as to the treatments as well as the reasonableness of the course of your medical care from the insurance company's perspective. This is critical because without this foresight, at the end you'll end up battling with the insurance company and spending years in litigation. Whereas otherwise you could have quickly obtained a settlement upon completion. Your attorney needs to have the wisdom to turn hindsight into foresight and have no reservations about being second guessed.
Working closely together, we can remove unnecessary treatments that only hinder your cases' financial value, add unnecessary agony in terms of medical treatments and unnecessarily lengthen the time to completion. Removing unnecessary treatments has the additional benefit of minimizing insurance defense tactics which aim to damage a case's credibility.
The competitive advantage gained in working with me is speed to completion. I have finished surgery cases within 5 months. Though the time to completion cannot be guaranteed and will vary from person to person, it can be expedited in every single case...and it can be expedited tremendously.
Lastly, in accelerating cases, we are often able to avoid complications. When an injury case takes two or three years...then the window is left open for complications to occur. Often what happens is that the client gets into another car accident and then each of the two insurance companies starts pointing the finger at the other. Other times, you spend time with the adjuster assigned to your client's file, updating them on the case, building a relationship, and teaching them about the process of why and how the treatments are evolving...and in the two to three year period...the adjuster either quits, gets fired, or promoted. Minimizing the time to completion allows us to work with one adjuster from beginning to end and come to a conclusion that avoids lengthy litigation. I attend every single doctor's appointment with every clients just so I can speak at length with adjusters before the negotiating process ever even begins.
You're always up against time in injury cases. By understanding treatments, having providers already in place that can quickly help heal a client, and avoiding complications, you can minimize the disruption to your clients' lives and maximize the amount of money they obtain.
This is the importance of having a one-on-one working relationship with an attorney. I have attended literally hundreds of doctor appointments with my clients over the years and had doctors explain to me the treatments and the reasons for each treatment for each client as I attended. Doing this over the course of some years, I was then able to obtain a thorough understanding of neck and lower back injuries similar to that of a doctor. Knowing the providers, the proper protocol, and having a system in place, I am now able to help the case move along at much higher speeds. I provide a blueprint from the beginning to end and clear guidance throughout as to the proper course of action, and this process creates a unique value in terms of accelerated recovery.
