Why do I need a Kansas car accident lawyer?

You may be tempted to navigate the legal system on your own. Your case might seem straightforward. Or maybe the person who caused your injury admitted wrongdoing. You might have already received an offer from an insurance company.

Think twice before going it alone. Cases involving personal injury often turn out to be much more complicated than our clients initially expect. Without an experienced lawyer, you run the risk of missing deadlines, not identifying all the potentially responsible parties, saying something that an insurer will use against you, and not knowing or understanding the procedural and statutory requirements for pursuing a claim to its fullest.

Then there are the insurance companies. They want you to believe they have your best interests at heart. Unfortunately, the reality is often quite different. Most insurance companies only care about one thing – maximizing their profits by paying car accident victims as little as possible. That’s why we strongly urge you to contact our lawyers sooner rather than later. We will help you get the money you rightfully deserve.

We Wrote the Book on Personal Injury Law

"And Justice for All"

by Matthew L. Bretz and Melinda G. Young


You were injured in a car accident. Now what? Start by reading "And Justice for All: Win Your Injury Case with Honesty and Integrity." This book, by Matthew L. Bretz and Melinda G. Young, provides practical information for anyone who is injured. While personal injury law is complicated, this guide makes it easy for anyone to understand highly technical topics.

He gave everything he had, and he inspires us to this day.

"He gave everything he had, and he inspires us to this day."

In our office you will see a small bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln, by Gib Singleton. Before Lincoln became our sixteenth president, he was a trial lawyer. As an attorney, Lincoln was involved in over 5,500 court cases, including 133 cases against railroads and 9 cases before the United States Supreme Court.

When you look at the bronze, you can see the weight of the world on old Abe's shoulders. The cost of righting wrongs as a trial lawyer, and of putting our country back together as President, was almost too much for any one person to bear. This old rail splitter from Kentucky and Illinois gave everything he had - and Abe continues to inspire us as trial lawyers today.
