  • You hear a lot of horror stories out there about ambulance chasers and lawyers doing this and that. But this law firm was completely the opposite, literally night and day, from everything that I had heard. It truly was beyond my expectations.

    I have never dealt with attorneys in the past on any matter so I was very hesitant at first. You hear a lot of horror stories out there about ambulance chasers and lawyers doing this and that. But this law firm was completely the opposite, literally night and day, from everything that I had heard. It truly was beyond my expectations. Every step of the way his staff was available to me, 24 hours a day. Anytime I had questions they were very quick to respond. They kept me informed of the entire process. They literally held my hand through the entire process and they really made a bad experience a really good and pleasant experience. They took all the pressure off of me. They really did everything for me. They took care of the bills, the legal matters and they managed everything with the case while still keeping me informed every step of the way. And, they would ask me my opinion, what I wanted to do and how I wanted to proceed giving me the various legal options. Again, I really had an outstanding experience from start to finish. And, the case settled very quickly and I ended up with a better settlement than I ever dreamed I would get. Anyone who is looking to hire an attorney for this purpose I would encourage them to go online and read Jim Dodson testimonials. They are really true to what people have said. I really did receive top notch service from this law firm. I would highly encourage anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation to call Jim Dodson and his staff.

  • I was very confident in having Jim as my attorney because he is a cyclist. He’s been cycling for many years and someone who doesn’t cycle wouldn’t really be able to understand what it’s like to be out there on the road, in traffic and dealing with drivers. Having him be a cyclist really reassured me that I was making the right choice.

    I’m a pretty avid cyclist and I was cycling here in March with a group like we usually do with the Florida Freewheelers. I was involved in a vehicle bicyclist accident which was totally the vehicles fault and my left hand was crushed. Soon after the accident, I knew that this gentleman had been in the wrong and I was in for some long recovery time and surgery.  My accident got announced on the Florida Freewheeler’s Facebook page and I very quickly got a message from our past president Stuart that I needed to contact Jim Dodson. Even though Jim lives on the opposite side of the state you would never know it. His office would always respond immediately by phone or email whichever I chose to communicate. I never felt like I was put off at all. I felt like I was the most important case of the day. He immediately took over the case and I never had to speak to the insurance adjuster or any of the people on the other side of the case. And, I was very confident in having Jim as my attorney because he is a cyclist. He’s been cycling for many years and someone who doesn’t cycle wouldn’t really be able to understand what it’s like  to be out there on the road, in traffic and dealing with drivers. Having him be a cyclist really reassured me that I was making the right choice. I ended up with a very nice settlement, much more than I ever expected but I mainly wanted the driver to know that you can’t drive like that and treat a cyclist like that and walk away and point the finger at them. I couldn’t even imagine facing that on my own. I’m sure I wouldn’t have been able to. I don’t think I would have even tried. It would have been impossible without Jim knowing how to handle this case. So, if you’re a cyclist anywhere in the state of Florida and you’re involved in any type of crash that caused you an injury please don’t hesitate to call Jim. He can totally help you no matter where you are and no matter what the case is. And, he will let you know right up front what you’re dealing with and what to expect. And, he has done enough of these that he knows what he’s talking about. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • They were there for me whenever I needed them, whenever I called them. It was very “family-friendly”. I was very happy with the outcome and very satisfied overall. They did an excellent job and they always had my best interest at heart.

    I’m a cyclist and I was riding my bike in a residential area and a vehicle turned in front of me I hit it broadside. I fell and broke my neck. I had to have my C1 and C2, the top two vertebrae fused. It was a very serious accident and a very serious injury. I made it to the hospital and the police were asking me all kinds of questions for their report. While they are asking me these questions I’m in a very vulnerable situation having just been seriously hurt. I knew at this time I needed to get some representation and I had met Jim before at a cycling conference. I knew that he was a friendly cyclist and lawyer and I felt he knew the intricacies of what I was going to have to face. We live two hours from Clearwater, where Jim’s office is, and I thought at the beginning that may be a problem. I thought I would have to make trips to Clearwater to see my attorney and I was worried about it interfering with work. It actually didn’t at all. With the technology today, I was able to just speak to Jim over the phone and he actually came to my hometown to see me when he needed to. Working with Jim was very good. He is very friendly. Always attentive. Whenever I needed anything or had a question he explained it in detail and told me all of my options. He helped me through situations I didn’t even know I would be up against. They were there for me whenever I needed them, whenever I called them. It was very “family-friendly”. I was very happy with the outcome and very satisfied overall. They did an excellent job and they always had my best interest at heart. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • Jim made me feel real comfortable by understanding my situation. He explained to me what the procedure would be like. I was very happy with the settlement and I felt I was very well taken care of.

    I’m headed South on a four lane boulevard and I have the right of way and I see a car approaching to the right in front of me and he stopped at a stop sign. I keep my eye on him. The window is tinted so I couldn’t catch his eyes and sure enough as I started passing him, he accelerated in front of me. I veered to my left into what could have been more traffic from behind but I was lucky and there was no traffic. He still hit me on my right side and I ended up on the pavement right next to his left front wheel. I went to the emergency room where I was treated and had x-rays everywhere and it turned out I hadn’t broken anything but I had deeply bruised my side. It probably took another week after the accident before I realized that my hip was giving me the most problems. Although, initially I didn’t feel the pain it was my hip where the driver actually hit me. I called my local riding club and they recommended Jim Dodson Law and so it seemed like a good idea to call an attorney that had expertise in bicycle accident injuries. Jim made me feel real comfortable by understanding my situation. He explained to me what the procedure would be like. I was very happy with the settlement and I felt I was very well taken care of. If you’re a cyclist and you have an accident, I would highly recommend that you talk to an attorney. And, I would recommend that you talk to Jim Dodson.

  • I read your article in the VHA Voice. I want to thank you for providing such an important article creating awareness and educating Village residents.

    I read your article in the VHA Voice regarding the Bike Friendly Advocacy Group safety and related insurance information. I am an avid bicyclist biking daily in The Villages 15-20 miles. I practice safety when biking, stay out of high traffic areas but still experience close calls with golf carts. I have often wondered if someone did hit me whether they would even stop. I wish that all golf carts had some form of license plate. After reading your article, I looked up the declaration page for my auto insurance and fortunately I have Uninsured Motorist "stacked" $300k per person/ $300K per occurrence. I am not sure what stacked means and should be contacting my insurance company to ask them. I want to thank you for providing such an important article creating awareness and educating Village residents. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • Every month I read your articles in the Florida Freewheelers newsletters and have really enjoyed them. I will continue to read your words of wisdom every month.

    Every month I read your articles in the Florida Freewheelers newsletters and have really enjoyed them. The August/2016 issue was particularly interesting for me. Little did I know that in October of this year after a hard 48 mile "B" ride that I would be diagnosed with Deep Vein Thrombosis. Your article was well written and described exactly what happened to me. I wanted to pass this information to you on how the Veterans Administration is treating me. They have prescribed Coumadin, 800 mg of Ibuprofen and 500 mg of methocarbamol. The Physicians detected the Deep Vein Thrombosis by performing a Venus Doppler Scan on my left calf muscle just below the left knee. Lastly, the Physicians told me that if I had not sought treatment for this condition it could have become a life threatening condition. At 68 years of age that was a very sober moment for me. Again "Thank You" for the article and I will continue to read your words of wisdom every month. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • They kept in touch with me and Mr. Dodson, himself called me several times to see how I was doing. The most important part was that they took care of all my medical bills and just made it a stress free situation for me in that regard.

    I was riding my bike one evening and a car hit me and ran and left me on the side of the road. I was quite injured. I had to go to the hospital and had to get some emergency treatment. Quite frankly, I didn’t no where to turn. It was one of most horrible experiences of my life, if not the most horrible experience of my life. A friend of mine called me to see how I was doing and what I was doing and I told her about my accident. She said call Jim Dodson. And, from the time I called Jim Dodson ’til right now, I was greatly taken care of and they were very solicitous of my situation. They kept in touch with me and Mr. Dodson, himself called me several times to see how I was doing. The most important part was that they took care of all my medical bills and just made it a stress free situation for me in that regard. Every single one of you, including the receptionist Kati, she just goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and to please you. I felt like I was at a five star restaurant when I went to their office. She really goes out of her way, very welcoming and warming. I felt that everybody, particularly Judi who does all the paperwork. was terrific, getting everything taken care of and in a very timely manner, I might add. I would say, call Jim Dodson in a minute. There is nobody else that I would have, particularly for a bicycle accident, representing me and my friends. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • What I’ve come to realize through this experience is that a lot of people do not understand the seriousness of the head injury. Jim understands all of the subtle problems I was having with being unable to focus, memory issues and loss of motor skills. He is knowledgeable about neurological testing. As a result he worked out a policy limits settlement of my case that will really help me.

    In 2015 I was involved in a car crash and suffered a concussion and neck injuries. A friend at work suggested I call Jim Dodson and I am so thankful that I did. Jim and his staff were great to work with and always did what they told me they were going to do. I was particularly struck by Jim’s patience with me during times when I would ask him the same question repeatedly due to my post-concussion problems. What I’ve come to realize through this experience is that a lot of people do not understand the seriousness of the head injury. Jim understands all of the subtle problems I was having with being unable to focus, memory issues and loss of motor skills. He is knowledgeable about neurological testing. As a result he worked out a policy limits settlement of my case that will really help me. I’m a hard person to impress and do not give praise easily. Jim and his staff are the real deal. You’ll not find any better. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.

  • When I walked in the door, I knew right away I'd made the right decision because I felt so welcome and comfortable. Mr. Dodson is someone I felt I could trust as soon as I met him, and I wasn't wrong.

    I was in a bad car crash and a friend of mine suggested I contact Jim Dodson, and I'm glad I did. When I first contacted Mr. Dodson's office, I was a little apprehensive because I'd been involved in another accident several years before and had worked with a big advertising firm. My experience there was not very pleasant and I really didn't like how I was treated. So when I went to see Mr. Dodson, I was wondering if this experience would be different. It was totally different. When I walked in the door, I knew right away I'd made the right decision because I felt so welcome and comfortable. Mr. Dodson is someone I felt I could trust as soon as I met him, and I wasn't wrong. I couldn't say enough about how courteous everyone in the office treated me, how they kept me informed about everything that happened in my case. I just could not be happier and I would recommend Jim Dodson to anyone who needs a lawyer for an injury case. Each case is different and past results do not necessarily indicate future results.
