Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

There are a few reasons why you are going to want to hire a spinal cord injury lawyer from Bodden & Bennett Law Group. There are many reasons why it is important to hire an attorney experienced in bringing claims for spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injuries are the most heavily disputed injuries in Florida courts and across our nation. The insurance company lawyers, who are hired on behalf of the defendant drivers, very often claim that the injured party’s spinal injuries are not a result of the motor vehicle crash but stem from the body’s aging process or are from some other event entirely. Very often, the individual making the claim for injuries becomes the subject of the investigation rather than the negligent party causing the crash. Insurance companies and their hired attorneys frequently retain private investigators to follow injured persons around and video record them in the hopes they can catch them doing something they can spin in front of a jury as proof that whatever injuries are being claimed are nothing more than lies. Rather than being fairly evaluated, injured persons are frequently vilified and blamed for their own injuries caused by someone else.

Insurance companies often prey on accident victims by quickly offering those unsuspecting victims cash money (for very low amounts) as compensation for the victim’s injuries. Those offers are tempting for some people who are in desperate need of immediate help and medical attention. Many times the victim accepts this offer not knowing that once that offer has been accepted, he or she can NEVER bring a claim for his or her injuries ever again. Don’t be a victim! Hire experienced attorneys who will stand in between the well-funded insurance companies (and all their investigators, adjusters and attorneys) and you.

The attorneys at Bodden and Bennett Law Group know from experience that the most important steps in protecting a claim for injuries are proper documentation of those injuries and a proper investigation regarding the facts of the crash. When a crash occurs, accident victims should not rely on the findings of any police or law enforcement agency that the defendant driver was at fault for the crash. In Florida, accident reports and statements made to investigating officers or deputies are prohibited from being presented to any jury. Even victims who have been rear-ended are and frequently and shockingly blamed for causing the crash despite those statements made by the defendant driver to the investigating agency at the time of the crash.

The attorneys at Bodden and Bennett Law Group know that depending on the policy amounts available, a claim for injuries shouldn’t be made until the victim’s medical providers have documented and related the victim’s injuries to the crash. Sometimes this process can be a lengthy one and no attorney should ever rush a client to settlement. The attorneys at the Bodden and Bennett Law Group take the time to explain this process to its clients, thereby, arming its clients with the necessary knowledge to make informed decisions about their case or any settlement every step of the way.
