While commuting to work, Sarah Harrell was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer. Several of her vertebrae were crushed, and she was confined to a hospital for a month before she could be released to an intensive physical therapy program. She could no longer do many of the daily activities that she had performed before the accident, and her workers’ compensation didn’t cover all of her costs. She hoped that her automobile insurance would cover the rest. However, her company completely ignored her claim and passed her from department to department, hoping that she’d give up. Finally, Sarah enlisted John Briggs’, one of our spinal cord injury attorneys, to help her get the compensation to which she was entitled.
“John was a godsend. He filed a suit for unpaid benefits and a bad faith claim for delaying and ignoring my requests for rightful payment. It was a relief having John as my advocate. He’s conscientious, competent, and trustworthy. John kept me well-informed, and returned my calls promptly,” said Sarah. “I believe people should be held accountable for their promises. When people don’t stand by their word and contract, action must be taken. I’m glad I had John on my side when I took that action.”
