Hi this is brian wiklendt from garfinkel schwartz coming to you today from our maitland florida office we also have a Cocoa Beach Florida on the east coast of Florida. But we travel everywhere where the client may be. Across the United States and other countries I go there and that’s where the court case will be litigated. I want to talk to you today about what our firm does which separates us from others. We advance the costs of medical evaluations if they’re necessary to prove the case for our.
Clients. what i mean by that is we can’t pay for medical care we can pay for medical evaluations and I when I mean pay I mean advance the costs on your behalf to be collected later from the insurance company or employer. And when that when that’s necessary after we’ve talked about things and we’ve taken the risk with you that you definitely are entitled to benefits that they’re denying we have to find s and experts on our side to be able to prove the case. For example.
A lot of a lot of insurance companies don’t want to pay for surgeries. so they get to do an evaluation thats haphazard go through some tests and say this these things are not just not not medically necessary. Wouldn’t it be nice if you do you go to a of your own choosing. Your lawyer advances the cost for you and you get an evaluation as to what your true injury is and what the true course of treatment should be and not rely on the insurance company to tell you that. That’s a very.
Powerful tool especially when you’re talking about back injuries and neck injuries and things like that that could be permanent nature. Another area of injury that insurance companies just do not want to recognize are respiratory issues and traumatic brain injury type issues along with PTSD. Those are the three big ones along with you we have some clients that have that suffered from abdominal pain and problems with parasites and and diarrhea and vomiting.
Things like that. which is which is basically bacterial infections that are there traveling overseas and sometimes they stay with you for a long time. And insurance companies just kind of don’t want anyone to know what whether you have constrictive bronchiolitis from burn pits or sand storms they don’t want you didn’t they don’t really want endeavor into what your gastro.
Problem might be whether it’s permanent or it was just food poisoning for a couple of days. They don’t want to address the situation that you might have a permanent traumatic brain injury from hitting your head or from being involved in an explosion. Those types of things they don’t really want to spend the money necessary to get a proper diagnosis. So what we do is we find a person a that’s a specialist in.
The area that we that we think you should be evaluated for. we find those people across the country we do some research on them to make sure that they’re going to be neutral people neutral s that are not working for insurance companies. We pay for the initial assessment and the initial reports and whatever comes out comes out if a client is evaluated for PTSD because of the symptoms that they’re having.
The that we pay for and we advance the cost for says that he doesn’t believe that the symptoms arise and caused from PTSD they’re caused by other depression from the family or whatever it is. Then that’s our report and we go forward from there and although if the opposite occurs and you get tested for PTSD or traumatic brain injury and a test comes out positive that you’ve been diagnosed with this from a at your own choosing.
