I’ve been in an accident and they’re screwing with me!

Let me guess? The insurance company. Either the At Fault party or your own insurance company. Insurance companies, theirs

or that of  the at fault party are great at taking premiums but  are difficult or impossible when they have to pay claims.

Here’s an article I wrote which shows just some of the ways insurance companies try to weasel out of paying claims.



Here’s a little about me, where I’m coming from and some advice on picking a good personal injury lawyer.

I hope you’re not mad at me when I use words like lie, cheat and steal or weasel. I’m from Brooklyn, New York and that’s how

people talked there and there’s still some Brooklyn in me.

Insurance companies lit, cheat and steal everyday and they only way to have a chance against them is  find a really good

personal injury lawyer, who’ll be straight with you and do what needs doing in your case.

I hope I’m that lawyer.
