SEND ACCIDENT INJURY BILLS TO INSURANCE CO AND SETTLE YOURSELF FOR 10x

I bet your didn’t know you can send your accident bills to the insurance company and settle the case yourself for 10 times the amount… without a lawyer. You Don’t Need No “Stinkin Lawyer”!............FACT OR FICTION? What do you think?

Many of you will recognize this as a take off on the Treasure of Sierra Madre movie, when Pancho Villa said “Badges? I don’t need no stinkin badges!” Many people believe anyone can settle the case themselves and get a “big” settlement on their own without a lawyer.

There are more people driving and drinking than we have seen in years, as we exit Covid restrictions. I anticipate more partying and drinking which will result in more DUI and ACCIDENT MATTERS, causing many to see more badges than they ever wanted to see!

However, at my office IF YOU’VE BEEN IN AN ACCIDENT and if you don’t need a lawyer, we will tell you. Yes, it is true that you may not need a lawyer. However, BEFORE YOU TALK TO THE ADJUSTER or HIRE AN ATTORNEY or SIGN ANY FORMS, JUST ASK FOR OUR FREE CONSULTATION AND WE’LL TALK ABOUT HOW ALL OF THAT WORKS.

For over 30 years, I have defended the constitutional rights and dignity of those accused of a DUI and obtained the maximum compensation for injury accident victims. I suggest You GET ANSWERS TO THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS BEFORE HIRING A LAWYER for your ACCIDENT CASE.

A DOZEN GOLDEN RULES TO FOLLOW WITHOUT EXCEPTION

  1. Call Police.
  2. Hire a LOCAL CV lawyer asap.
  3. Be honest and don't hide prior accidents from your lawyer or doctor?
  4. Don't miss medical appointments or have gaps in treatment.
  5. Purchase adequate insurance…not the minimum!
  6. Follow your lawyers advice about repairs.
  7. Silence is Golden.
  8. Get immediate medical treatment.
  9. Don't treat with the wrong doctor.
  10. Don't handle the case yourself.
  11. Treat with a doctor experienced in preparing med/legal reports.
  12. TAKE DOWN SOCIAL MEDIA (FACEBOOK etc): Don't post that you're feeling great or running to play tennis or golf. The insurance company will argue if you were well enough to play a sport you couldn't be hurt that badly. Social media is the biggest advance for insurance companies, who no longer have to hire private investigators. They learn from your daily posts how you are doing and that could be the kiss of death for your case. The insurance company can learn of your friends and talk to them. Your friends may assume you are ok because you do not complain.

INSURANCE COMPANIES DO WHATEVER THEY CAN TO PAY LESS MONEY ON AUTO, HURRICANE, FLOOD OR FIRE CLAIMS... IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE THE KIND OF CLAIM. THUS YOU MUST PUT AN EXPERIENCED ACCIDENT LAWYER IN YOUR CORNER.

I look upon my job as protecting the Constitutional Rights of every American who drinks, drives and gets arrested for a DUI or has an ACCIDENT. I do however "Change Hats" when I SUE Drunk Drivers for damages to my Injured or Deceased (Wrongful Death) clients.
