My mother got into a bad accident a few years ago, involving someone on drugs. They happily took the case and a few months later, won the case! However G&O took every bit of the money they won, around 35k. My mother even had to pay for some of the medications, never being reimbursed. She got a check for around 1.5k, which after the medical bills, meds and damage to her car, didn’t amount to anything. I was in an accident a year ago (rear ended with minimal damage, but tweaked my wrist and back.) I went to PT for a few months and just dealt with insurance myself and received a settlement of 28k. If you are in a basic accident, rear end or minimal damage, Don’t go through a lawyer! They lie, lie, lie.
