For anyone that will have to endure a serious injury due to someone else's negligence, John Bratt is your guy. All lawyers are sharks; they feed off of the money you are awarded to compensate for your injuries. What you need is a creative shark that will obtain the largest sum possible for you, and do everything possible to help you keep as much of it as you can. My case was limited to a policy limit but I know for a fact John exhausted all options, including asking medical providers and health insurers to reduce their bills to get me more money. Having a shark as your lawyer is necessary, so at least have a shark who's honest, blunt, direct, and insightful, who knows the law and who skips the games. Simple things matter. Choose John Bratt as your shark.
