$32,500 gross recovery for whiplash injury car wreck in The Colony, TX. Fantastic settlement by attorney at policy limit for client with no objective injuries. Our client was a passenger in an automobile traveling northbound in the right hand lane of the 5000 block of Main Street in The Colony, Texas.

Yes, the claims adjuster comes into the situation and approaches it like they make all the rules. They don’t give you a choice. They recite what they have to and ask you to give a recorded statement about your car accident. Here’s the thing: they know most people say “yes” because they feel obligated to.
