Several Car Accident Treatment Clinic Owners In Orlando, Florida, Arrested For Fraud
As an Orlando car accident attorney, I am very concerned about recent news involving fairly widespread auto insurance fraud, allegedly being committed by car accident victim treatment clinics in Orlando.

As an Orlando accident & injury attorney, I learn more about how other injury law firms operate every time I receive a call from a client who is unhappy with how another firm has handled their case.
