How do you go about picking a personal injury attorney when you need one? So many of us are afraid that after you get past the television commercials and the hype, most personal injury law firms are little more than uncaring “ambulance chasers”, just looking for their next big score, whether or not you have a legitimate personal injury case or not.
Here is a story that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that attorneys and staff at Slinkman, Slinkman & Wynne, P.A. are not your typical personal injury law firm personnel. Their practice is made up of people who really do care about their clients – and they really do go the extra mile to try and get you the compensation you deserve for the losses that you suffered.
How do I know this? Because I have been a client of theirs. During the late afternoon/early evening of a Monday in April of last year (2015), I was involved in 2-car automobile accident on I-95 in West Palm Beach. Luckily, neither I nor the people in the other car involved suffered any type of serious injury. My car, however, was deemed a total loss by my insurance company.
During the weeks that ensued I would come to learn that my automobile insurance company of 25 years valued my car at almost $5,500 less than I owed on my loan (despite the fact I purchased it used, two years old), AND they would only cover 5% of the cost of my visit to my local MDNow to have my neck checked out – an additional loss of $525 for me. Since I had only owned the car for 10 months, I argued with my insurance company that they had covered the car for the full value of what I purchased it for, and I could not understand how they now valued it for $8,000 less than my purchase amount in less than a year.
Suffice it to say – the multiple debates accomplished nothing other than to make me extremely frustrated. Particularly since I have been a loyal customer for all of those 25 years, involved in only one accident since my early college days. Conservatively they have made at least $20,000 on me over that time.
When I related my story to Slinkman, Slinkman & Wynne, P.A. partner Ryan Wynne at a networking event, he asked me if I were willing to allow him to work on my behalf to try and recover some of the money I had lost. Honestly, I had given up. After hours of useless arguing with multiple insurance company representatives on the telephone, I figured that Ryan and his firm had zero chance of getting me another penny. But hey, since he was willing, why not let him try?
Well, it took about 9 months of effort by Ryan and his team – yes, he did not give up fighting for me, even after I had said to him that he could give up at least 2 or 3 times. And amazingly, Ryan Wynne and his team was able to get the insurance company to agree on a settlement that netted me a payment of around $3,300.
I realize that does not sound like a lot of money. But for me, that $3,300 was totally found money – from the same insurance company that told me, in essence, to go pound sand. That surprise and welcome settlement helped me to pay off the rest of my car loan.
Therefore, if you are like so many other people, and you have no idea how to go about finding a personal injury law firm you can trust will work hard for you when you have been injured – then take it from me, and my personal experience.
