? What types of case do you typically handle?
? What is one thing that you want clients to know about you?
I’m easy going, but I always give my clients an honest opinion, including tough love, if necessary.
? Can you discuss one case that you have handled at I & I that really stands out to you?
While I have a connection to many of my clients over the years as a result of handling their claims, one of the claims that stands out is a commercial vehicle case where the at-fault driver was driving a cement truck on a two lane road and, after crossing the center line, he hit my client head on, causing her to flip over and go down an embankment into a ditch, where her car caught fire.
The at-fault driver was so callous, that he simply stayed up on the road and watched my clients vehicle burn. We later learned that he had been smoking marijuana.
Unfortunately, my client sustained a significant and permanent traumatic brain injury.
My client and I ended up mediating this claim, and against the recommendation of the mediator, I refused to settle for the last figure that was offered. Less than 30 days later, the adjuster and I ended up settling this case for three times the final figure that was offered mediation.
The money that I was able to get for my client allowed her to have a continuous stream of income far into the future to address not only her health care needs, but also her family needs in light of her injury.
