Get Your Clients the Compensation They Deserve (Without Breaking the Bank)
Minor impact, soft tissue (MIST) injury cases are an uphill battle for plaintiff's attorneys. It is all too easy for insurance adjusters and defense counsel to claim that serious injuries cannot result from an accident causing such minimal property damage.
