Complaints Categories - James M Thorson Jr, Attorney


Posted : 5 Jan ,2014 by    Eric A. Smith



On April 26th, 2010, I was at the intersection of E. Helena & Riverside Drive, on the bridge that goes over the Great Miami River,in Dayton,Ohio. I was panhandling, as I do everyday, at that bridge. When,at 1:42 P.M ,a car had went toward the intersection traffic light. The car ran a red light causing an accident with a van, after the car hit the van then was spun around and ended up hitting me, witnesses at the scene said that I was thrown in the air and landed in the front of the car. The driver of the car then backed up and left the scene.The car ended up stalling out at Mcowen and Riverside Drive. The 1st time that I was aware I was involved in a accident was when the Paramedics had arrived and was preparing me for transport to the Hospital. The news report video of the accident can be viewed at, if you want to view it. I was involved in a 2 car pedestrian accident back in May 2010. I had gone and hired Thorson, Switala, Mondock & Snead Law firm, to take my case. I took all the evidence down to their offices and met with Mr. Jim Thorson, himself. I presented him all the photos and the Police reports from the accident.He almost immediately told me that I had and open and closed case. I kept in touch with his office to find out how things were progressing for 3 years, and they kept telling me that they were still trying to get with the insurance company to get me a settlement. Every time I called the office, they told me that they were still working the case. This went on 'til early last year when Mr. Thorson himself had contacted me by phone and said that in their view, the Insurance Company had said that they would not even settle out of court, and that Thorson Swatala Mondock and Snead sees in their opinion that it was no sense in continuing to try and fight the Insurance Company. I went to and filed a complaint, not just against Thorson, Switala, Mondock & Snead, but also the Insurance Company Progressive Insurance. has contacted me by email, saying that Progresive Insurance Company had contacted them saying that the complaint on them was starting to effect their business and was wanting to know if would take down the complaint. Complaintsbureau informed them that they do not take down complaints unless they are asked by the author to have it taken down. When the site had told them what Mr. Thorson had told me and that there would be no settlement and the case was closed, Progresive Insurance Company stated that they had paid Mr Thorson $10,000 and they still have an open file on the accident. I believe in my opinion that the law firm got what they could get and that they basically said screw me. They say in their commercials that they are big enough to win but small enough to care which in my opinion is alot of bullshit, do not hire this law firm. Thorson, Switala, Mondock & Snead never did return half of my phone calls and never answered any emails that I had sent them. This Law office is in my opinion nothing but shysters and thieves. They will claim to do the best that they can to win and not do no more then they have to, to win your case. They should be Dewey ,Cheatem and Howe and not Thorson, Switala, Mondock & Snead. They won't do you any good, on your case. Stay away from this law firm ,at all costs.

They are suing for $500000 but they should try to settle out of court for $1.00, because this man is poor......
