Client Reviews
Terry H. February 7, 2023
Knowledgeable and Understandable Brian is the best personal injury attorney I have ever worked with. A client advocate, he has helped me now on several occasions by listening and then thoughtfully delving into my legal options and requirements. A great communicator, he explains things in terms that are both knowledgeable and understandable. Always responsive; in my experience, Brian is hard working and persistent in his efforts for his clients.

Brian Bradford - highly skilled attorney with a kind heart After I was rear-ended in a car accident, I found Brian at Cook, Bradford, and Levy through a friend who had heard good things about the firm - that they were 'down to earth,' friendly and attentive with their clients. That has been my experience as well. At my first meeting, Brian listened to me - really listened - and he was kind, encouraging and completely supportive from the get go. I didn't know how the legal process worked, and Brian walked me through it step-by-step, while I was focused on my recovery process. He checked in with me often to see how I was doing, and was there to talk through all of my questions and help me figure out next steps. It was a rough time - physically, mentally, emotionally - and Brian was a huge support through it all. He always said, "We've got your back - just do what you need to do to heal, and we've got the rest" and that is really true. And, in the end, he negotiated the maximum settlement that was allowed with both insurance companies involved. I'm extremely grateful for Brian and his team. They are great people, highly skilled, with kind hearts and a passion to help. I am doing great today, and I attribute a good part of that to the supportive help I received from Brian at Cook, Bradford and Levy. I can't thank him and his team enough.

Legal Answers
12 Questions Answered
Q. Is there any way I can get someone outside my family who has car insurance to help me get my victims relief payments ?
A: When determining which insurance may apply to your particular crash, it is very important to understand the circumstances of how the crash occurred. For example, were you a passenger or the driver? Was the car you were in your car or someone else's? We would be happy to discuss the facts of your case at no cost. Call us for a free consultation.
Q. Can i do a law suit when i fell at mcdonald's a few years back now i have back problems and need injections every year?
A: The answer to your question will depend on the specifics of your case, including how old you were at the time and what state you live in. I would suggest contacting an attorney where you live or in the state where you were injured. Best of luck!
Q. My wife was in a car accident in Jan 2020 where the other driver ran a red light and was cited. She hasn't worked since,
A: I am sorry to hear bc snout you’re wife’s injuries. Maximum medical improvement (MMI) is not a prerequisite to resolve your wife’s claim. However, a good personal injury lawyer will want to make sure that if your wife has long term/permanent impairments, a poor prognosis for recovery, and an ongoing need for future treatment, those issues are fully understood before resolving her case. If those details are unclear from the records, which is often the case, your attorney should meet with one or more of your wife’s providers to get a narrative report(s) addressing those issues so the can be accounted for in determining what is “full compensation “ for her injuries.

We would certainly be happy to discuss this further and share our opinions with you on Monday. ... Read More
