Experienced Car Accident Lawyer in Pittsburg, KS Represents Injured Parties
Skilled trial attorney seeks maximum compensation possible
Our cars are such an important part of our lives that we often take safety for granted, until an accident impacts us directly. Almost 18,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents in Kansas in 2014, so if you’ve suffered a serious injury, you’re certainly not alone. Still, it’s easy to feel alone when you’re hurt and unable to work, and the medical bills keep piling up. It’s then that you need a strong advocate to assert your rights and obtain full, fair compensation for your losses. Patrick C. Smith, Attorney at Law is an experienced, hardworking attorney you can trust to manage your car accident case. For more than 25 years, I have served people like you in Pittsburg and throughout southeastern Kansas. I provide highly professional and ethical legal representation focused on justice for injured clients.
Winning full compensation for a variety of serious injuries
When choosing a car accident attorney, you should look for someone with a record of success managing litigation arising from accidents and injuries similar to yours. I have a record of success in a wide variety of motor vehicle crash cases involving passenger cars, commercial trucks, buses, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians. I work with accident reconstruction experts to pinpoint the cause of a crash and prove liability.
To win full compensation, an attorney must be able to prove the severity and lasting impact of your injury. In car accident, medical malpractice, slip and fall, and workers compensation cases, I have consulted medical experts on numerous types of serious and permanent injuries. I know what must be done to secure maximum compensation for injuries such as:
- Bone fractures
- Concussions and traumatic brain injury
- Internal injuries
- Loss of hearing or sight
- Neck and back injuries
- Soft-tissue injuries
Litigating serious injuries requires specific knowledge gained only through years of experience. You can rely on me to build a strong case based on the facts of your accident.
Let an experienced attorney deal with the insurance company
After your car accident, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will probably try to negotiate a settlement directly with you. However, you must bear in mind that an insurance adjuster is only concerned with saving the company money by settling your claim for as little as possible. To recover the true value of your claim, you need a knowledgeable attorney advocating for you. It doesn’t cost you anything to consult a personal injury attorney, and if you retain my services, you don’t pay any legal fees until I recover compensation for you through a negotiated settlement or verdict.
How long will it take to conclude your car accident case?
It’s impossible to say with any certainty how soon a particular case might be resolved. Many factors affect the pace of litigation: the certainty of fault, the severity of the injuries, the prognosis for recovery, the skill of the attorney, and the desire of the parties to reach an agreement. Most car accident cases settle fairly quickly without going to trial. However, many cases only settle when the parties get close to trial, and some cases must go all the way through trial to a verdict to achieve a just result. No matter how long your case takes, I provide personal service every step of the way.
