My name is Ruth, and on December 1st, I was riding on the West Orange Trail on a road bike & I had a collision with a car and was unconscious. I had to be taken to the hospital, and I had numerous injuries. During that process, I had spoken with a friend, & he recommended Jim to me so that’s how I was able to get in contact with Jim & his office to get his help. My friend recommended Jim to me and at the time, he said “I want you to hire this attorney who represents the Florida Freewheelers,” and I didn’t know he was personally a cyclist at that time. When I found out he was a cyclist, I knew he would have my back. Jim was very reassuring & we could relate to one another. I could totally put my trust in him.
So after I had the accident, my friend told me to give Jim a call. I was maybe a little hesitant because the only real interaction I have had with attorney are from the billboards and TV but my friend said believe me, you want to talk to Jim. As soon as I met Jim he came to my home we talked and I felt comfortable from the very first moment. I knew he had my best interest at heart, and he would see it through to the very end.
When Jim started working for me, I had a friend that had an accident, and I knew I could immediately give her Jim’s name. I would give anybody who has had any type of accident, Jim’s name because I am just comfortable with him. I know that as a cyclist, he understands every facet of what goes on, and he will see the whole case through.
When I had my accident, I had surgery and there were numerous weeks of healing time. I had to be patient with myself and Jim reassured me I would be able to get back into it and just to be patient. I am tenacious and stubborn. As soon as I was able to get on my trainer, I got back on my trainer. As soon as I was able to get back on the road, I got back on the road.
So after I met Jim then starting working with Judi, Mark & the whole team, I felt comfortable. In the very beginning, Jim said this could take some time, and I knew that that was true and I waited for his lead. He was very kind and kept me in touch. He would call and email, Judi would email and keep me updated during the entire process. Now that it is done, I am relieved. They were all for me in getting the best results and I think they are all awesome!
I feel like Jim and his team worked tirelessly to make sure I had all of my expenses paid, and that I was going to be healthy not only after the accident but through the rest of my life. I feel like Jim went above and beyond to make sure I got all of my needs met. Words that come to mind when I think about working with Jim during this process are steadfast, honest, caring and loyal.Ruth
