I submit an auto accident to jim adler's attorney's.
I informed the first case worker i met with of the situation in full.
I was involved in a auto pile up where i was a passenger in the fourth car.
The driver of the vehicle i was in did not have a tx drivers license and was not covered under the liability
Insurance on the vehicle.
I contacted jim adler to see if there was anyway that i would be able to recover lost wages and compensation for my doctors bills. At that time the attorney said "yes" you were just a passenger and we will go as far as we can to make sure you are taken care of.
The first day i met with the case worker they told me that i would need to begin treatment at a local chiroprator to make sure my case goes smoothly. I infact did this for 1 week. At that time i contacted jim adler after being sent a letter telling me if i was at fault for the auto accident then i would have to pay for any treatment being provided by local chiropractors. When i contacted the firm after recieving the letter i attempted to ask the case worker questions about the accident. He insured me that there was for sure a settlement that may be available for me in my favor. "regardless of the fact that the driver was uninsured and had no valid drivers license. " jim adlers associates told me to continue therapy at the chiropractor they directed me to.
The chiropractor told me that i would have 3 weeks of therapy to complete. On the 2nd to the last day of therapy i got a call from jim adlers associates telling me that the driver of the vehicle i was in was not covered under the insurance and had no drivers license, therefore the insurance will not settle in my favor and my doctors bills would not be covered.
* at that point i did infact understand that the attorney jim adler was in some way getting some kind of commission off of the treatment that so desperately said i would need to complete to pursue any claim with the insurance.
*the office was very rude and told me that they would be closing the claim on the very next day, " the final day of therapy assigned by the chiropractor they sent me to. "
Jim adler and his associates never contacted any of the insurance companies involved in the auto accident "only the insurance from the car that i was in". When i first met with the first case worker i specifically asked him to go through that insurance last if they must.
My advise to anyone would be to never do business with jim adler and his associates. They will mislead you to thinking you will be ok and they will take care of everything.
"after the whole ordeal with jim adler was over and i hung up the phone with one of his associates, i contacted the insurance claims adjusters to handle the situation myself.
At that time they confirmed that jim adler nor his associates contacted them in refrence to any of my claims. "
*** the icing on the cake****
The police report states that "the driver in vehicle 1" admits to slamming on his brakes to avoid hitting an unknown car and causing this major pile up on the highway" i was in vehicle 4 and was the only person out of all the vehicles involved forced to be taken away by ambulance by the police due to severe injuries.
