What insurance companies so often minimize, or disregard, is the pervasive nature of an accident or injury. With their goal being to settle claims quickly, they fail to provide compensation that fosters long term care. With a herniated disc in his neck, and a full life, Troy Alsaker learned quickly that rehabilitation was not just costly, but a great commitment.
On June 11th, 2015, stopped at a red light on Blue Angel Parkway, Troy was rear ended by a texting, driver.
After a visit to the hospital, where Troy was diagnosed with a concussion and neck injury, he called his father.
“He was the one who encouraged me to get a lawyer,” Troy said.
His father’s main concern was the effects Troy’s accident would have on his future. Being that Troy was not responsible for the accident, why should he have to pay for neck surgery? Or any of the countless fees accompanying such an injury.
“Prevention,” Troy said. “That’s what I was looking for from Michles & Booth, some kind of security for the future.”
Prior to the accident, Troy had never been seriously injured. In excellent health, a father, surfer, and respected agent at Mark Downey & Associates, Troy’s quality of life was marred considerably.
“I mean, some weeks I was going to four doctor’s appointments.”
In constant pain for six months, Troy is grateful he didn’t face the insurance company alone.
“At Michles & Booth, we do things the old fashion way,” says Marcus Michles, “we create a partnership between the client and the lawyer.”
A partnership that requires effort by both parties. In the same way Bruce Balestreri (M&B paralegal) coordinated the details of the case, Troy made PT and chiropractic care with Dr. Pacheco top priority.
“These cases require a lot of patience,” Marcus Michles says.
“Fortunately the communication with Bruce and everyone at Michles & Booth was fabulous,” Troy said.
Back to surfing at 75%, exercising, and enjoying time with his wife and their three children, Troy is reeping the benefits of asking for help.
