Fast and easy experience with Emily Benight. I was going through a very hard time and place in my life after the accident and I appreciate her making it very easy for me and not having to worry about the case.
Emily was very helpful and explained everything that left no room for misunderstanding. She walked me through the whole process, from beginning to end. I am very satisfied with the service.
My accident was very traumatic. I was in pain and I was not thinking very clearly. My personal physician was not very helpful to getting me care and was very unresponsive. Emily at FDA fixed all that in just a few minutes. They got me physical therapy, medical care and got me on my way to a healthy recovery from one the worst moments in my life. Thank you is not enough to say for all the help they got me.
