Basically, I was on a bicycle training ride and was heading west on Washington Avenue. A gentleman opened his car door without looking to make sure traffic was clear and as I tried to swerve to miss his door he was coming out so hard he caught me in the side of the bike. When he did that, of course, I came to an abrupt stop and it knocked me into the traffic that I was riding alongside of, and pin-balled me off of the side of the car in the traffic lane you know.
Severe trauma to lower back where there was inflammation, swelling, as well as some things with my knee that had tightened up and had swollen up so at that point I turned the damages over to my insurance and just made the claim through my insurance. Then I sought Estey & Bomberger’s help for the physical damage to me because I was training for a 100 mile mountain bike race in Colorado that was 6 weeks away and I wouldn’t have been able to compete in that had I not had the physical therapy and so I went to see Mike and he said, ‘Look all your worries are done, I’m going to take care of everything. You go train, you take care of yourself, get better, do what you need to do at the doctor. And you don’t have to worry about a single thing with the insurance company any longer.’
A couple of months later they called and said everything’s been resolved, are you okay with this, and it was more than what I expected. Being able to get back into training and not having to worry about dealing with the insurance company, and knowing that I could get the physical therapy I needed to get back on the bike went a long way in that.
I would absolutely recommend them. If I come up with anything else like this again, knock on wood that I won’t, 100% I’d call them first.
