LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Stories abound of personal injury cases in which the insurance companies stooped to unthinkable levels to deny someone's rightful claim. Fortunately, there are also stories of average men and women who, finding themselves up against the insurance companies' dirty tricks, have gotten the help they need from top personal injury attorneys in Los Angeles.
Consider the case of a blind man who was a passenger in a car when it was involved in a freeway accident. As a result of the injuries that this man sustained in the accident, he was forced to undergo both shoulder and knee surgery. The insurance company made the audacious claim that they were not required to compensate this man, because he was ostensibly disabled prior to the car accident. Essentially, the insurance company argued that he was already disabled because of his blindness. This argument was not only absurd in its logic, but also downright dehumanizing.
But the story doesn't end there. The blind man turned to the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, Inc., a renowned law firm that employs some of the highest caliber personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles. The Burg and Brock team immediately went to bat for their client, and successfully substantiated that, despite his blindness, the man was leading a healthy, functional life before the accident. Only after the accident, and the related injuries, did this blind man actually become disabled. Their argument prevailed, and the insurance company settled to the tune of $1.1 million. This sum was based on the past, present, and future medical care that the client needed, in addition to compensation for pain and suffering. The client was overjoyed, because he now had the finances he needed to get back to the healthy life he was pursuing before the accident. Not only that, but he finally got the respect he should have received from the very beginning, and you can't put a price on human dignity.
This story underscores a couple of important points. First, the insurance companies are not your friend. They will always look for ways to undermine the legitimacy of your claim. Second, it takes the creativity and diligence of an accomplished personal injury lawyer to prove your case, and to demonstrate that proceeding to trial carries too much risk for the insurance companies. If you can get them to settle for a satisfactory sum, you can get back to living your life soon, instead of getting entangled in a lengthy trial. That's where a formidable law firm like Burg and Brock comes into the picture.
