Our client was struck while in a crosswalk as a pedestrian. The accident stunned her, and to make things worse, the insurance company pestered her for weeks about her injuries. Finally, she decided that it was in her best interest to hire the experienced pedestrian accident attorneys at Davis Law Group to help.
As I was coming up to a crosswalk, one of the kids I teach art with in another classroom was on the left hand side and had pushed the button to walk. So I turned and went to wave to them and this person without breaking slammed into the back of me.
In the first couple of weeks I was still kind of dazed just you are so sore. You are sore the day of the accident but then it almost gets worse. I am a mother of four and I was thinking I could still be super mom and hold them together and then the adjustor started calling. And they were calling my cell phone at 7:30 in the morning when I was trying to get my kids out and as late at 8'o clock night. You know, 'well have you heard anything? Have you talked to her yet? Have you talked to a surgeon yet?' Just trying to bully me for answers I felt like.
And like I said it was just two weeks. It was everyday, several times a day for two weeks. And it was very, um, they wouldn't ask a question like 'how are you feeling today?' Instead it was like 'on a scale of one to ten how are you feeling today?' It was always an interrogation. And I felt like every day they were trying to wear me down. Wear me to down to slip up and say something that was going to come back and bite me in the butt later.
You should never let the adjustor from the other insurance company make you feel like less of a person because you want representation. They should never make you feel or try and talk you out of asking for help. Because it gets, you get in so far over your head, almost immediately, and like I said there are days.
Like you have your surgery and then you are looking at 3 months of physical therapy for three times a week and you are going 'what?' you know, that is going to be on my kids birthday, or that is going to be on anniversary or that means I am not going to be able to go on vacation this year. And those are the days that you have to have somebody that is going to help you. You know those are the days that I call on Rory and say 'hey I have thing other thing going on I am doing the best I can but they are beating me down' and Rory calls and kicks ass.
