Lawyer Referral Services - What Are You Really Getting?

The potential for a conflict of interest continues to be a problem for 411-Pain and other referral services. According to Grier Wells, a Jacksonville lawyer chairing the Florida Bar’s committee: “Lawyers have shown up at medical clinics unsolicited to meet accident victims — apparently tipped off by a referral service. Other lawyers might face a legal quandary: Do they have an allegiance to the client or to a medical provider that’s part of the accident hotline network?” This is quite a scary proposition. I have been retained by a number of clients who personally found their prior lawyer through a referral service and were pushed into extensive treatment with a Chiropractor by said attorney. The lawyer failed to explain their relationship with the lawyer referral service or disclose that both the law firm and the physician paid to be a member of the same network. When the client failed to show up for treatment, both the lawyer and Chiropractor would call them on the very same day. It appeared that the attorney and chiro were working together in cahoots”.

How Insurance Carriers Take Advantage of Policyholders

It’s no secret that insurance companies rake in tons of financial gains for the halfhearted services they provide their customers with. Many insured people would even agree that they’re paying far too much for coverage that is less than desirable. Specifically, I’m talking about automobile insurance. As if inflating premiums wasn’t enough, providers have been utilizing yet another way to cut their costs and increase profits.

Florida Bar To Consider A Change In The Rules Applicable To Lawyer Referral Services

If approved the amended rule would apply to attorney matching websites like Avvo and Legal Zoom as well as non-lawyer owned referral services. The malpractice insurance requirement would be eliminated and rules requiring certain disclaimers in the services ads would be removed.

In addition, a few requirements prohibiting lawyers from working with services that coerce them into providing cross referrals or fail to document their compliance with bar rules will be added.

I Was Injured In A Car Accident - Should I Call A Lawyer Referral Service?

If you have sustained physical injuries in a Florida auto accident, lawyer referral services may appear to be an attractive option. In the Tampa Bay area, advertisements for 411-Pain and 1-800-Ask-Gary run all day long on local radio. When you think of a referral service, a company like Angie’s List probably comes to mind. Many referral services in differing lines of business assist prospective consumers in finding the best available option based on quality. The quality of services offered by each company, is often determined by consumer and peer reviews.

Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuit - The Role of a Neuropsychologist

Diagnosis is where a neuropsychologist’s work in a TBI case begins. Objective evidence of cognitive impairment is part of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual-4th Edition (DSM-IV) diagnostic criteria for PCS (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). Therefore, documenting neuropsychological deficits is an important tool used to help establish the validity of symptom complaints, particularly in the medical-legal arena. Neuropsychologists are trained to observe, assess, and recognize the relationship between the anatomy and physiology of the human brain and a person’s behavior. These experts can help clarify and organize the clinical observations made by a TBI victim’s physicians. Such clarification is critical in determining whether an injured person has TBI and the severity of said injury.

Herniated vs. Bulging Disc: What's the Difference?

Sometimes, the terms “herniated disc” and “bulging disc” are used interchangeably, giving the assumption that they mean the same thing. This is not the case. The differences between the conditions help to explain the severity of the central problem, along with the pain associated with such an injury. Discs cushion the vertebrae, contribute to flexibility and help to protect the spinal cord. Discs are composed of a gel-like center (the nucleus pulposus) and a tough, fibrous outer layer (the annulus fibrosus). For clarification, it may help to think of them as miniature jelly doughnuts that are exactly the right size to fit between your vertebrae.

Car Accidents Related To Fatigue

The National Highway Traffic Safety administration conservatively estimates that 100,000 police-reported crashes are the direct result of driver fatigue each year. This results in an estimated 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries, and $12.5 billion in monetary losses. Even more mind boggling is that according to the National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep in America poll, 60% of adult drivers (about 168 million people) say they have driven a vehicle while feeling drowsy in the past year, and more than one-third (37% or 103 million people), have actually fallen asleep at the wheel. This has ushered in the fact that fatigued-driving is one of the National Transportation Safety Board’s problems to address in their 2016 Most Wanted List of transportation safety improvements.

Medical Malpractice Due To Failure To Diagnose

If you have certain symptoms, medical professionals should perform the proper tests to accurately diagnose a serious condition. Unfortunately, some doctors fail to diagnose certain conditions which can lead to unnecessary injury to patients that may even be fatal. If your condition is not diagnosed in a timely manner and you suffered complications as a result, any negligent medical professionals may be held liable for medical malpractice.

Chris Zachar is a nationally recognized trial attorney. Although my practice is in Clearwater, we have interacted with Chris multiple times on several issues including Floridians who were injured in Arizona. Chris provides personal attention to his clients and the service his firm affords is quite impressive. However, the most important factor in judging Chris as a lawyer is his track record in taking cases to trial. Insurance carriers are well aware of his reputation. Hence the reason we would not hesitate to recommend Chris Zazhar and Zachar Law Firm to anyone who has been physically injured due to the negligence of an individual or corporation.

Steven Gursten has a well earned national reputation as one of the premier plaintiff civil trial attorneys in the U.S. I have personally worked with both Steven and his law firm on behalf of two clients on separate cases wherein the individual resided in Florida but was injured in Michigan. He is a phenomenal lawyer and an even better person. His staff is equally a pleasure to deal with and the law firm is simply a first class operation. Steven was very attentive to my client's needs and he made certain that this was an easy process for them. I would not hesitate to recommend Steven Gursten or his law firm to anyone who has been physically injured due to the negligence exhibited by an individual or corporation. Steve is known as a pre-eminent trial lawyer, but I was surprised at just how humble and pleasant he is in our dealings. Finally, this is the lawyer you call when your dealing with a defendant with unlimited resources. Steve and his firm have the ability to deal with even the biggest corporate giants and hold them accountable for the harms they caused and the losses you have suffered. - Matthew A. Dolman, Esq.

Tina is an elite lawyer and I am proud to call her my friend. As a practicing trial lawyer, I can attest to the fact that very few of my colleagues actively litigate cases. Further, even fewer attorneys possess the resources, knowledge and experience to competently handle catastrophic injury cases. Tina Willis is an attorney that I would not hesitate in recommending her services to any individual or family that has been harmed due to the negligence exhibited by an individual or corporation. - Matthew Dolman

I have had the opportunity to work with Bill Hurst and Alexander Limontes on Indiana cases and they are truly among the finest trial attorneys and personal injury lawyers in the U.S., let alone Indiana. Bill and Alex provide phenomenal service and personal attention to their clients which is rare in a business dominated by television lawyers who spend significant funds to obtain clients whom they ignore and allow a paralegal to run the case. In fact, we often hear many individuals complain that they never speak to a lawyer during their case. Bill and Alex are just the opposite and clients have all reported back to me that they were extremely satisfied with the prompt and personal attention they received. Bill has a national reputation as a civil trial attorney which is well deserved. I would not hesitate to refer future clients (when the client either resides in Indiana or the accident took place there) to Bill Hurst and Alex Limontes.
