Words from Dan’s Clients
“Dan Christensen helped me understand the insurance process after an auto accident that was not my fault. I never thought I would need a personal injury attorney but after my family doctor and chiropractor would not see me unless I was a cash patient, I called Dan. I didn't realize that my own medical insurance wouldn't cover a visit and many medical offices don't like to handle auto accidents. I was in pain and had no idea what to do. Dan was patient, kind, honest and explained why an attorney is sometimes necessary to get necessary medical treatment. I have a new appreciation for personal injury attorneys and recommend Dan Christensen.”LBPersonal Injury Client
