“I was involved in a head on collision Back in Oct. of 2014. I spent my first night getting stitches in my forehead, 2nd-3rd night I was on the internet and telephone, Doing research and holding phone interviews. I wasn’t having any luck, so finally 4 Nights after my car accident, I put in a call to Boling Rice in hopes of finding someone to help me with putting my life back together. I was fortunate to be introduced to Ted Spaulding over the phone. He seemed very interested in my health and how I was feeling right off the back. He listened to me and my issues, explained what they do at Boling Rice, and what he could do for me…

So I made an appointment, after speaking to Ted in person, I knew I had made the right choice in choosing Ted as my Personal Injury Attorney. I soon found out that Ted is the absolute Best I could have found. He was able to help me find Temporary Med. Insurance for doctors and all necessary treatments and medication. Ted was a great help to me and my family. I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome and treatment I have gotten from working with Ted. I highly recommend Ted Spaulding to anyone hurt and in need of any personal injury assistance.
Thanks again Ted Spaulding, for all your help and great work with my personal injury case.”
