Head-On Collision Case
“After a friend recommended me to Christensen & Hymas, I met with Ken and felt really comfortable. My personality is to know what is happening every step of the way and Ken and Terri were really understanding. Their representation got me more money than I imagined; it was so helpful and took away all of my stress.”
After being involved in a head-on collision in her neighborhood just days after Christmas, Heidi had a difficult time dealing with the insurance company. At the same time, she was battling to recover from a host of injuries including a torn meniscus in both knees and a damaged shoulder, back, and neck that left her with limited movement and in continual pain. Heidi’s medical expenses quickly began climbing into the tens of thousands while she spent her New Year’s trekking from doctor to doctor, trying to stay on top of her recovery. But soon, Heidi found the appointments, pain, bills, and insurance claims too overwhelming. We were grateful for the opportunity to represent Heidi and help relieve some of her stress during this difficult time. We made sure to stay in contact with Heidi regularly and guide her through every step of the process, helping her to maintain control over her own case. In the end, we were able to reach a settlement of $200,000 for Heidi.
In her words:
“The Christensen Law Firm was recommended to me by a friend, and the first thing I remember about the firm was feeling very comfortable. My initial meeting was with Kenny, and after meeting him and his paralegal I knew that I would be well taken care of. Throughout my time with the firm, all of my phone calls and e-mails were returned, even though I felt like I was bothering them by checking in so much! I received more from my settlement than I imagined; I just felt like the firm was so helpful and took away all the stress!”
From the Video
“My name is Heidi Aldridge, and I was in a car accident on December 28th, 2009. It was a couple days after Christmas, and I was heading down the street just in my own neighborhood and I was coming towards a car, and I thought we were just gonna pass each other, and they smashed right in front of me and totaled my car. “I talked to my insurance company, and that was a nightmare because they didn’t want to help me with any of my expenses. We lost our car – it was totaled. My medical expenses were getting really high because I was still in so much pain, and they didn’t give me enough money to cover any of my damages or medical expenses, and I just felt like they were in a big rush to just get me off their books and get on with it. “I decided to talk to Ken Christensen and see if he could maybe help me because I found out in an MRI that my knee cartilage was totally shredded, and I knew it was gonna take a lot more than more physical therapy to be able to walk again. I was really impressed by the way they handled my case. They returned my phone calls immediately or answered the phone, usually, or emails within the same day. “I got to talk to Ken himself, and he would call me several times and check on me and check my progress and they acted like–they treated me like a person. They treated me like I was important. It really meant a lot to me to know that I was important to them and that they knew who I was. They knew exactly what to tell me to answer any of my questions. They really took good care of me.”
