Dispute over Knee Surgery Argued and Won

Litigation Type - Car Accidents

Client Injury - Knee Injury

Our client was on his way to a weekly Lion's Club meeting when his car was hit from behind at an intersection. He was thrown against the steering wheel and suffered a knee injury serious enough to require surgery. Later his insurance company demanded he undergo an independent medical exam with a doctor of their choosing. A few weeks later, our client's medical and wage-loss benefits were cutoff with a letter stating that his knee injury was not related to the accident.

Our words of wisdom to this client: an auto insurance company's so called independent medical exams are usually anything but independent. While he could have been Minnesota nice and simply paid the surgery bill, he decided that he wasn't being treated fairly. William Bongard took his case to arbitration and won back his wage loss and medical benefits.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
