I was in an accident in my car, but I wasn't driving
Mr. Jeff Porter and his friend were on their way back from a trip. Growing tired, Mr. Porter asked his friend to drive for a while. His friend lost control of the car. Impact resulted in both of Mr. Porter’s femurs to break. "All I had was Veteran’s coverage, and there were no VA hospitals nearby," Porter continues, "since it was my car, but I wasn’t driving, the insurance company was trying to get out of paying me the liability."
"I didn’t have any problems once I called them."
What challenges did you face after the crash?
I don’t have any medical insurance and the insurance company was trying to get around paying me. The insurance companies, and the police and the hospitals were calling me constantly, wanting information. I thought, "I’m in serious trouble here."
How did things change after you called Elk & Elk?
They just took over. It was a lot more peaceful after that. The phone kind of died down. They took care of all the phone calls, all the transactions… everything. I can’t tell you how much it helps you when you’re sick and you’re down and you don’t know what to do. It’s hard to even think when you’re in a lot of pain. Elk & Elk took over all of those problems.
How has your impression of personal injury attorneys changed?
Now I have a completely different outlook on personal injury lawyers, I’ll tell you that! They did a fantastic job. It kind of restores your faith in humanity a little bit to have someone do a good job and do it from their heart.
