Personal Injury

Did you or your loved one get injured due to someone else’s negligence? Had a car accident or slipped on an icy walkway?

Often, it can be difficult to get the insurance company to pay. But not for us. We can help you make them:

  • Cover your past, present, and future medical bills related to the injury
  • Cover your lost wages and any other financial losses caused by the injury
  • Compensate you for your pain and suffering

"Knowledgeable, professional, extremely competent, understanding, and patient."

I had been injured while at work and suffered several life-changing injuries. I had a complicated case and a difficult and stubborn opposing counsel. My attorney was knowledgeable, professional, extremely competent, understanding, and very patient with me. He guided me through many pitfalls to obtain fair compensation for my injuries. I will be forever grateful for his efforts.

"They care more about the health of their clients than money."

If you want good results and the highest payout possible, BFS is the place to go! They aren’t only good lawyers but your friends. My money that is behind, or any doctor that can’t get me in, they call and make it all happen right away. Many lawyers I've met just think about getting money; that's not BFS. They care more about the health of their clients than money.

"They got me more money than I could have ever imagined."

When the insurance company stopped my payment for three weeks, I knew I needed help. I had no money. They denied my benefits and hung up on me. Life has been less stressful because of your help. BFS came highly recommended by another lawyer, and after I hired them, my life became less stressful. They got me more money than I could have ever imagined. I didn’t even think I would ever come close to this number.

"BFS got my medical expenses and procedures approved."

Took all the pressure off me in dealing with a workers’ compensation accident. They got approval for my much needed medical expenses and procedures that I kept getting turned down for. Can't thank them enough.

"Hiring BFS took a lot of the unnecessary stress away."

It was a work injury that I thought I could handle on my own. And then I got a letter from the insurance company, from their lawyer. I knew I wasn't gonna be able to go up against them by myself. Hiring BFS took a lot of the unnecessary stress away. They got me a lot of medical care and a very reasonable settlement.

"We would not have been able to do it by ourselves."

Hiring BFS gave me peace of mind. It was much easier having them deal with all the crap like late checks and no checks, and prescriptions not being approved on time. With BFS, we had someone who would really get after them and someone who knew what we were supposed to do. It was much easier than if we had been doing it ourselves. We would not have been able to do it by ourselves. BFS got us a settlement, and now we have some financial stability.

"My physical problems are better addressed by the physicians now."

I was back and forth to the hospital without improvement; and dealing with the workers’ compensation insurance adjuster, it felt like they did not have my interest at heart. I was very frustrated. Hiring BFS relieved a lot of my stress and worry. My physical problems have been better addressed by the physicians, and I seemed to have better access to healthcare.

"BFS are skilled professionals who will fight for you and your needs."

I had bilateral bicep issues. But the company I was working for denied me any compensation, as well as medical and financial help. The stress that I was going through was unbelievably tough. But within a few days after hiring BFS, I received notice that I was going to get the medical and financial help I needed. I felt so relieved! They are truly skilled professionals who will fight for you and your needs.

"BFS was able to successfully get my care restored multiple times."

I had been hurt on the job, and my employer was trying everything they could to get me to quit so that they would not have to take responsibility for the injury. BFS got my case resolved in a very favorable way. Over the past several years, the insurance company that handles my claim regularly stops paying and claims that I no longer need care. Every time, BFS was able to successfully get my care restored.
