My wife and I were coming down the highway when a guy made a left hand turn right in front of our vehicle without seeing us. We struck him head on. The insurance company said they were going to take care of everything, but as the bills kept pouring in; it was my credit being affected, it was my door they were beating on wanting money. So my wife had seen a commercial for Bishop and Hayes, so when we met with them everything was explained to us in layman’s terms so we could understand what was going on. We lost a lot in that crash, Bishop and Hayes made sure we got what we deserved out of our accident.

My husband was involved in a traffic accident and was killed while riding his motorcycle. My husband and I were raising two grandsons at the time. With his death I had a lot of fear of how I was going to make it through this difficult time and continue to provide for my grandsons. If I was talking to anyone who suffered a loss like I have and need legal representation I would not hesitate to refer them to Bishop and Hayes P.C. Without them I truly do not know where I would be today.
Karla Freeman, Widowed by Result of Motorcycle Crash
Dealing with my injuries I didn’t know what was going to happen next. I don’t know what to do; it was overwhelming. I didn’t want to get walked allover. The insurance company was already trying to settle with me and I felt the amount they offered was way too small. So I just needed someone on my side. As soon as I hired Bishop and Hayes P.C. all my bills came to them, all the telephone calls from bill collectors stopped; it was just a relief. I got to concentrate on healing as opposed to worrying about my financial future. I was very happy with the outcome of my claim and everything that Bishop and Hayes provided.
