How Your Personal Injury Case Will Be Handled

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why won't the insurance company pay my lost wages each week while I am out of work rather than waiting until the final settlement?

A: Paying you each week helps your negotiating position. By not paying you until the end, they feel that you will be more desperate for money.

Plus, the insurance company gets to keep earning interest on the money you and thousands of people like you have coming. They want to keep that interest money flowing to themselves.

And besides that, there is no legal procedure to make them make partial payments on the sums you are eventually entitled to.

Q: Why do you wait until I am done treating for my injuries before trying to settle my case?

A: In cases of clear liability where the ultimate value of your claim will exceed the defendant's insurance policy limits, we begin immediately attempting to both settle your case and set the insurance company up for "unlimited liability."

In the other cases, we will not know the full value of your case until you have completed all medical treatments and rehabilitation.

Q: Why do I have to reimburse my health insurance company for the money it paid out for my medical expenses when I paid my premiums to them?

A: Almost every health insurance contract these days has a reimbursement or repayment clause in it. What this means is that if you collect money from someone who was responsible for injuring you and the health insurance company paid your medical bills, it has the right to collect that money back from you according to your contract with them.

For the clients who desire this service, we will negotiate with your health care insurance company or government assistance health insurance to lower the amount you must reimburse. We provide this service at no additional cost and many times we have saved a client thousands of dollars.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“I don’t even know where to start, because I really wanted to write this recommendation even if there was no star or rating to be given! My daughter and I were in a bad car accident in 2011. She received a broke jaw, broken pelvic, broken arm, and a ruptured ear drum. I prayed to the lord while I was in ICU to guide me and send me to the right attorney that would help me and my daughter and not just look at us as a monetary opportunity. After much research I choose Bisnar Chase.
After spending 2 months in the ICU, we were in a long recovery process. Learning to walk, to eat due to wire shut for months! Back to the basic all over again… 4 years later it just came to an end! I tell you I have 2 different paralegals assisting me but Colleen Cadogan was the best I had this past year… This lady, emailed me, called me, send me words of encouragement almost every week! When I least expect it and I had a horrible day or had many questions and concerns she was there! As the paralegal doing her job, but also as a human being, a mother, a wife….just genuinely concern for my daughter and I. As the case came to a close….I will always remember the team of professionals and I would recommended Bisnar Chase to anyone….and be patient, patience”

“My grandson and I were involved in a roll-over accident in which he broke his ankle, and I broke my neck. Unfortunately it was caused by a hit and run driver who got away. One call to Bisnar/Chase and they came right away. Of course, my case took about 3 years to settle, but Bisnar/Chase was there to inform me every step of the way as to what was going on. They answer calls and emails right away, and I was never left wondering what was going on. The whole staff is caring and friendly and everyone there treated us like family. Not to mention the fact that they never seemed to forget you, by sending birthday cards with BaskinRobbin gift cards and on New Years they always sent the fancy fortune cookies! I always thought that was very thoughtful and caring of them. I had nothing but a positive experience with them and I would recommend Bisnar/Chase to all of my friends and family or to anyone who is in need of legal help.”
