Default F#%* Lawyers

Simon law office on pinhook rd just ran an ad asking flood "victims" to call their office for help during their difficult time I guess they're planning a class action suit against Mother Nature or God or whomever they can find with deep pockets Cle' & Quintin Simon should be hauled out and horse whipped infront of their daddy's office for this shit.

Reminds me of a funeral home in Columbus Ohio that had on their lighted sign:

Free ice cream for senior citizens.

Sue the county building and zoning office for allowing them to put their home in a flood zone like they wanted?

There's a pretty good chance the flood was due, in part, to human error. Also, most of those people are well above the flood zone so almost none of them have flood insurance and getting a lawyer may help.
That said, lawyers are opportunistic and most of the time sleezy, but let's wait until we see if they are helping or hurting the situation before passing judgement.

While yes they are probably taking advantage of the situation yall must not comprehend there are other types of lawyers than personal injury that just sue everyone. Many serve their clients by ensuring they get a fair settlement from the insurance company, with the massive amount of property damage from this storm the number of claims is going to be astronomical and every insurance company is going to be looking to cut their losses as much as possible.

Hey around here we have Rouse, now he added his daughter to the firm and now it is Rouse and Gash, (Yes his daughter's married last name is GASH!!!). Better yet their latest ad; asks for you to let them help you in a time of crisis because we are here to help the ordinary people.

Screw you, I'm not ordinary!!

I feel y'all in South LA. My sister is in Gonsalves. Be well!

I will counter that - had many people in this area had legal help to deal with FEMA after hurricane Sandy they would have been much better off.
The on-going federal litigations here have shown FEMA and its contractors didn't just lowball or disclaim marginal items, but committed outright fraud in order to not pay or under-pay thousands of flood claims from Sandy.

You think they're bad until your insurance company screws you on your claim....

unfortunate but true

Quiet couple across the street just gave notice that they will be tearing down the house and selling the land. Between Fema and the contractors run around they have finally given up sad.

When hard times hit, everyone has their hand out.
When the big easy got hit a few years back as soon as the water subsided I was down there, hauling flooded cars out of there, winching then on.
You know on the back of the doors in motels that show what they CAN CHARGE.
There won't a motel withing 40 miles that was not charging MAX, . I had a sleeper truck then and could stay at the truck stops but Motels for a night anywhere was well over the 125 dollar a night mark.

Love what someone said on face book. Where is the NAACP and black panthers now?

I disagree, your statement is a attorney talking point/commercial. True sometimes shit gets lost in the shuffle on the claims end but most times, the claimant can get a better deal from insurance dealing one on one. Personal injury lawyers have created the "it's not my fault" mentality that runs rampant in America. While I feel for those affected by the floods, all had an opportunity to purchase Preferred Rate flood insurance from NFIP and signed a waiver that explained what they were giving up. I surmise, that the P/I guys will go after local government for failing to stop a historic 500 year event hoping to settle out of court while their clients get pennies on the $ and them a large windfall(remember big tobacco?). P/I guys have solutions and are always looking for the prverbial problem to act on it. And yes, currently I am paying 4 attorneys and consider it money well spent but it's my money.

Heard on the radio this AM from the mayor of Walker that the 6ft retaining wall barrier that was built 3-4 yr ago in the middle of I-12 separating west bound from east bound for 15 miles acted like a 6 ft dam flooding the North side. Ive been down this section many times, I can see that happening.

Theres going to be massive lawsuits over this

If you don't like the firm's advertising tactics, don't hire them.

watch the 60 minutes episode on the flood in New Jersey a couple years ago and how the insurance companies treated their insureds, then tell me why attorneys suing insurance companies is a bad thing.

Lots of lawyers out there looking for clients
Too damn many of them.
Reminds me of a joke...one I am sure most everyone has heard:
One day a cruise ship full of lawyers sinks out in the middle of shark-infested seas. Nary a single survivor was bitten. Why? Professional courtesy.

OP must think that insurance companies are in the business to make you whole.
