Terry J. Fong has devoted a substantial portion of his 30 years of law practice protecting the rights of those injured in motor vehicle accidents. He brings a unique perspective to handling motor vehicle accident claims because he has practiced both sides of personal injury law. Early on in his legal career, he represented insurance companies in defending motor vehicle accident claims. In the past 25 years, he has exclusively represented persons injured in motor vehicle accidents to pursue fair compensation for their injuries. Having represented insurance companies previously gives Terry J. Fong invaluable insights into how insurance adjusters and defense attorneys evaluate, settle and defend personal injury claims. This enables Mr. Fong to be more effective and persuasive in prosecuting his clients’ personal injury claims and obtaining maximum compensation for their injuries.
Terry J. Fong will not hesitate to take a motor vehicle accident case to arbitration or jury trial if the insurance company refuses to offer his client fair compensation for their injuries. He has a track record of success in litigating personal injury claims. In one case, Mr. Fong’s client was rendered a paraplegic when his vehicle was hit by a semi-truck on the freeway. When the insurance company refused to offer his client adequate compensation, Mr. Fong filed suit and took the case to a Jury Trial. The Jury returned a verdict exceeding $6 million for his client. That became the 4th largest Jury Verdict in the State of Arizona that year
If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, do not let the insurance company pressure you into a quick settlement for less than the amount you deserve. Often, when people are injured in car accidents, they do not realize how hurt they actually are. It is human nature to try to “be tough” or to brush off your pain lest you are perceived as weak. However, the full extent of an injury from a motor vehicle crash is not always known until days, weeks or sometimes months after the crash. Until that time, it is best not to settle your motor vehicle accident claim. Furthermore, you may be stressed and not thinking clearly after a motor vehicle accident. That is not the time to make a quick decision. A fast settlement usually benefits only the insurance company, not you.
