After the wreck I had to go through several months of pain and agony and surgery and my wife had to go through a lot of stuff.

While many fear that a claim will head to trial, Larry trusted us to work just as hard fighting for him as he works for his trusting customers each day. We appreciate Larry taking the time from his work to speak with us. Here is his story...

"Right before the crash I was on my way to work when I got broadsided by a dump truck. After the wreck I had to go through several months of pain and agony and surgery and my wife had to go through a lot of stuff.

The insurance company treated me like a dog like they didn’t even know who I was, didn’t pay a penny on my doctor bills the whole period. I think they spent more money on expert witnesses than they would have ever had to spend on my doctor bills

The reason I had to get a lawyer was because the insurance company didn’t contact me, didn’t try to offer to pay me anything or make me any offers or anything but except to pay to get my vehicle fixed and after that I ended up having to have major surgery and they just refused to pay anything.

The insurance company wouldn’t pay for my hospital bills, my therapy bills, or any bill that I had whatsoever.

Attorney John Griffith and Larry

Right before trial, the insurance company did everything they could to drag it out from 2013 to 2018 and my lawyers finally got it in court after fighting with them for four or five years.

I didn’t want to go to court but there was no other choice but to go to court because they didn’t want to do anything. They were just…negligent as I far as I’m concerned.

My experience with John at trial was very impressive. He really let me know that he cared about me instead of about money and other things. He cared more about me than he did… you know. He wanted to win for me.

I had talked to him before the trial about settling, you know, for less money, but I sent a figure of about $225,000 and we ended up getting a judgment of over $400,000, which I thought was great. I mean he just did a real good job and the jury, you know, had faith in him and had faith in what I was telling him so it was very impressive the way he handled everything.

I REALLY didn’t want to go to trial and I didn’t want my wife to have to go to trial because of problems she was having, but the jury ended up doing the right thing they came back it really surprised me. They did exactly what I thought was right.

My experience with GriffithLaw overall was fantastic. It was great. I never had any problems with them. If my family or anybody I know was injured in an accident I would definitely recommend GriffithLaw to them and I’ve already recommended a couple of people to them already. I will highly recommend them to anyone.

I’m Happy!"
