After yesterday’s post, “Leading Insurance Academic Proves State Farm Accepts "Reasonable Expectations" of Insurance Coverage,” I received an email from Jim Fortson, a marketing consultant who is married to our firm’s Managing Attorney, Mary Fortson. Jim is always reviewing ads and marketing information to keep informed of current trends. I get many ideas for my blogs from readers like Jim, and thought I would share his with you.

Notice the wording in the ad: “…quickly assess the damage” ….”quick response restores what you need.”
