I had a meeting with a rep from brown and croupen, i was less than impressed. They sent in a guy from some 3rd party company, his job is just to find them business i guess. He showed up to my hospital room wearing a tshirt and khakis... tattoos all over his arms. Seemed to me like one of those shady people that sells magazines door to door. He wasnt talking to me about my situation, he was very obviously giving me a practiced and rehearsed sales pitch. I got the same schpiel he has given hundreds of other people. I had the tv on in my room (muted) and i bet he looked up at the tv 20 times at least. when he looked up at it he was still talking through his sales pitch, and if he has it that rehearsed that he can watch tv while he talks then im confident they arent going to give me the individual attention i deserve. Plus he didnt even work for B&C so they dont care about the client enough to have someone from their company come out.
I thought they would be a good firm since they are so big and well known, but after thinking about it more I dont want someone that does all their advertising on TV during judge Judy to try and get as many people (by people i mean just $$ because that's obv all they care about) in the door. I want someone that advertises by word of mouth because they do a good job and dont have to advertise to the lowest common denominator.
Probably the biggest thing that bothered me was this- the packet of info he gave me had a sheet of paper that had a standard settlement payout for different types of injuries, lost work, etc. He told me all that, and said 'you didnt hear this from me, that piece of paper isnt supposed to even be in there.' I felt like it was just to put a dollar amount in front of your face so youd see $$$ signs and sign your life away really quick. He made sure to tell me i wasnt supposed to see that and he kept the paper to make me feel like it was some top secret privileged info. That probably works on a lot of people that are hurting for money or maybe dont know any better.
The whole thing felt very shady, and i really feel like they were in it for their best interest not to help me. I wont use them or recommend them to anyone.
Also Dom, B&C take 40% now.
