My car was completely totaled after I got rear ended on the freeway. I was on my way to work when I had to slow down because the right lane was closed off. Apparently the car behind me didn't expect it and couldn't slow down on time and slammed into my car. I wound up hitting my head on the windshield, so the cops and ambulance had to come to the scene.
My wife had to leave work to visit me at the hospital, and we were both really worried because even though we both had car insurance, neither of us had health insurance. Fortunately, my brother heard I had gotten into a car accident and recommended Fitts Zehl, who is one of the most reputable accident attorneys in Houston. He told me that they were very experienced in dealing with these cases, and that they would take care of everything.
Fitts Zehl did in fact take care of everything, and I didn't have to see one bill from the doctor or take any calls from the insurance. They handled everything like they said they would, and I even got compensated for lost time at work. I got a completely new car, and I didn't have to worry about paying even one bill.
I've heard horror stories where the insurance company lagged, even though the accident was completely not your fault. But all they care about is paying as little as possible, so it doesn't matter whose fault it is. With Fitts Zehl, I didn't have to waste time making my case to the insurance so I could just worry about getting better and getting on with my life.
I was able to get back to work, and all the injuries I sustained were treated quickly without any runaround from the insurance company, so that's a huge relief. I got all the doctor documentation I needed for the missed time at work, so there were no issues with the HR department (thank god).
If you want a good accident lawyer who will fight to get you the best settlement, I would say that you can't go wrong with Fitts Zehl. They made sure the insurance company didn't walk all over me, and everything was resolved very quickly.
