This catchy 80's phrase was from a commercial about a hamburger that had little beef in it's sandwich compared to a competing fast food company. The premise is that there wasn't enough product for the amount of money invested and therefore "where's the beef?" In personal injury cases, victims also want to know where's the beef. There are automobile repairs, lost time from work and injuries to get compensated for. An attorney can help you with all of these but my concern is getting my clients better and giving the attorney the best opportunity to recover the client's loss.
If you were injured in an accident, you are entitled to get your health back the way it was before the accident. Sometimes people cannot get completely better, but rather what is called maximum medical improvement. Meaning, that the patient will not get any better with continued treatment. The condition is either static or stable. Sometimes people will need continual care after completion of therapy because when they perform their activities of daily living, they experience an increase of pain which did not occur prior to the accident. A trauma qualified physician will not only be able to get you well, but will be able to manage your case for your attorney so you will get the best settlement for your injuries. If you were injured in a car accident, or you are an attorney with a client in an accident, call us at 800-862-5914 for a consultation to see if we can help you.
