Great help

“My son hit a vehicle turning left into oncoming traffic - his car. The accident totaled my son's car and left very little, if any, damage to the other. We thought the other party's insurance company would pick it up no problem as they were clearly at fault. However, they claimed they were not responsible for my son's car. They claimed he was partially at fault. This is when I called Matt. Matt took on our case and the other party paid for my son's car. Thank you Matt!”

Kind, compassionate and caring /// Hard working, relentless

“I was injured when fell off of the front porch of a house due to the homeowner's lack of maintenance. I ended up having two back surgeries and over $107,000.00 in medical and surgical bills. The homeowner's insurance company refused to pay the medical bills and I did not have health insurance, so I was forced to look for an attorney. Luckily I was referred to Matt Bretz, Matt was kind, compassionate and caring. He listened to me and it was obvious that his compassion and concern was genuine. He then went to work on pursuing my claim. The insurance company continued to deny my claim, but Matt did not give up. He was relentless in pursuing the insurance company. Through his efforts he was able to get all of my medical bills paid. He was also able to obtain a settlement of $290,000.00! Now I don't have to worry about my future medical needs. I was incredibly fortunate to have been referred to this amazing attorney.”

Thankful

“My sister suffered a broken neck in a motorcycle accident. She is now a quadriplegic. I hired a local attorney who advertises a lot, but he missed the statute of limitations in Tennessee. I was then referred to Matt Bretz. Matt figured out that the case could be brought under Kansas law, making a longer statute of limitations. He also investigated and found out that the motorcycle wheel which came apart and caused the accident was poorly designed and that many of the manufacturer's wheels had come apart in the past. Tragically, the manufacturer had redesigned the wheel but had not implemented a recall and had not warned purchasers of the defective wheel. Thank God that I was referred to Matt.”

Tenacious

“I was hit by a semi and suffered multiple injuries requiring surgery. The insurance company denied my claim entirely. I hired Matt Bretz and through his tenacious efforts we were able to learn about the driver's medical history and that he had lied to get medical clearance to drive. He had had a history of transient ischemic attacks resulting in him essentially falling asleep while driving. While the insurance company offered absolutely nothing before I hired Matt, he was able to get it settled for almost half of the million dollars.”

Treated me like family

“Matt represented my children and me after my husband was killed in an accident involving a dump truck. He was compassionate and truly cared.”

Compassionate, caring and brilliant

“After hiring another attorney who did nothing on my case and who did not return my calls, I eventually was referred to Matt. There was an immediate obvious difference. Matt listened, it was obvious that he cared, and he was able to map out a strategy which ended up winning my case. What a difference a great attorney makes!”

Just the lawyer I needed!

“I was injured in a collision when a car made an illegal u-turn in front of me. I ended up having two surgeries and being taken off work for months. The insurance company offered only $8900. A friend referred me to Matt Bretz and Melinda Young.

When they took over my claim, everything changed. Matt and Melinda were able to get my medical bills and lost wages from the accident paid. They got additional medical treatment for me, and a release of the hospital's lien for unpaid bills. On top of all that, they got me $100,000.00 for settlement on the eve of trial. With this the insurer for the person who caused the injuries will be responsible for the injuries instead of me.”

Couldn't have asked for a better Lawyer

“I was involved in an accident with a drunk driver whose BAC was almost 3 times the legal limit. I was flown to KU Medical Center in Kansas City and was there for surgery and extended hospitalization. When I got out of the hospital I was unable to walk, was confined to a wheelchair, and since I had no health insurance I had over $200K in medical bills.

My parents were referred to Matt Bretz. The next morning Matt drove to Kansas City, met with us, and agreed to help me. The doctors took care of my medical treatment and Matt took care of everything else, including the medical bills, lost wages, and living expenses while I was recovering from the injuries.

Matt has helped me throughout every step of the process. Even though he has cases all over Kansas and is often on the road, I have always been able to reach him because his cell number is printed on his business card! He has even come to my house so that I would not have to travel. My medical condition has improved and I am now back to work. With Matt I have been treated like a person, not a number. Matt has now reached two settlements for me and is working on the medical bills.

Bretz Law Offices was the best decision that my parents and I could have made. I recommend anyone who is seriously injured to call Matt.”

Outstanding Job

“Melinda represented me in 2011. She did an outstanding job and we obtained a great result. I highly recommend her.”

Client, Hoisington, KS
"I can't thank you enough for everything you did for me! After I got my settlement I purchased an '07 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic. I've put 50,000 very happy miles on it since April! I can't explain how happy having a motorcycle makes me! I went without riding for almost two years while you took care of my case. I couldn't be happier about how it turned out! This bike has brought me so much enjoyment and it is so special to me! Thank you so much!"

Client, Costa Mesa, CA:
"I was in a car accident in Orange County, California. The insurance company for the other driver blamed me for the wreck and refused to pay any of my medical bills. Since I lived in Southern California it seemed strange but I was eventually referred to Bretz & Young in Kansas. Matt Bretz flew out and met with me and I experienced first-hand why I was referred to his office. Matt was compassionate about what had happened to me, and he and his office were diligent in investigating the wreck and were able to prove that the other driver was speeding and that the wreck was his fault. Ultimately, he was able to get the case settled for more than a quarter million dollars."

Client, Lincoln, NE:
"I was injured in an accident when a trailer being pulled by an oncoming construction vehicle came detached and hit my vehicle head on. The insurance company offered only $100,000.00 and every attorney to whom I spoke told me to take their offer. Fortunately I did not give up and eventually was referred to Bretz & Young. Matt took the case to trial and got a verdict of over $395,000.00. Following that trial Matt also pursued the insurance agent for the construction company since the agent had failed to procure the insurance coverage which had been requested by the construction company. While I will never medically recover to 100 percent of where I was before the collision, I am glad that Bretz & Young was tenacious and would not just roll over and play dead like all of the other attorneys and just settle for what the insurance company offered. Great, compassionate and hard-working attorneys make a world of difference."

B.S., Kansas:
"You make me feel like I am your only client and I do appreciate that so much."

W.B., Tennessee:
"After my sister was severely injured in a motorcycle accident I hired an attorney on her behalf. After a year, the attorney had gotten nowhere, and eventually dropped the case. I then hired Bretz & Young. Within thirteen month, Matt Bretz got her case settled for over $3 million. Now the responsible party will pay for her future medical bills instead of taxpayers. What a difference a great attorney makes!"

S.H., Dodge City, KS:
"Two different attorneys turn my case down before I hired Bretz & Young. Matt filed suit and took the case to trial when the insurance company would not pay. Through his diligence and commitment, we obtained a verdict of over $250,000.00."

Anonymous, Kansas:
"When my daughter was severely injured in a truck accident, I was referred to Bretz & Young. The insurance company initially lied about the policy limits and denied the existence of an umbrella policy, but Matt Bretz was about the prove the truth, and eventually recovered over $2,000,000.00 for my daughter."

L.G., Hutchinson, KS:
"My mother was killed in a car accident and I hired a Hutchinson firm to handle the claim. I later fired that firm when I found out that the firm also represented the insurance company that the claim was against. I was then referred to Bretz & Young. Within seven months my claim was settled. If you have suffered severe injuries from a car accident, don't call anywhere else."

Anonymous, Overland Park, KS:
"Several years ago my sister read about Bretz & Young's trial results in the newspaper and referred me to them for a fall. Then my car was hit by a delivery truck. The truck driver tried to blame me for the collision, but Bretz & Young was able to prove that the truck driver was at fault and settled my claims for $1.3 million. I'm glad I listened to my sister."

C.O., Buhler, KS:
"While walking to work I was hit by a car whose driver was making an illegal turn. I hired a local attorney who does television advertising. I ended up having to fire him after he did nothing to get my $35,000 in medical bills paid, my $30,000 in lost wages paid, and treated me like I did not matter.
Fortunately, I was referred to Matt Bretz and Melinda Young. Everything was different. They got the bills paid and got the case settled. What a difference great and ethical attorneys make!"

M.W., Table Rock, NE:
"I was badly injured in a car accident and the insurance company offered me $50,000 to settle my claims, claiming it was their policy limits. A local attorney referred me to Matt Bretz. Matt agreed to help me at no cost with no risk. Matt ended up taking the case to trial and got a verdict of over $395,000.00. Going to Matt Bretz was the best decision I could have made."

E.B., Kansas:
"My husband died as a result of a car accident caused by a lady who pulled out in front of him on the highway. I hired a local attorney who does a lot of advertising but fired him several months later when he hadn't done anything to move the case along or to keep the medical providers from harassing me about the bills.
I eventually was referred to Matt Bretz for help in getting the medical and funeral bills paid. Within days of being referred to Matt I learned first-hand why he has received so many honors in Kansas and even nationally. He treated me with compassion and was able to get the medical and funeral bills paid, and then he got the case settled for $350,000.00. To my amazement, after Matt got the case settled the first attorney wanted a chunk of the settlement even though he had not done anything on the case or even returned many of my phone calls.
I was lucky that I got a second chance and was referred to Matt Bretz. If you have lost a loved one, call Bretz & Young right away and don't risk your future on someone else."

L.P., Grinnell, KS:
"I was injured in a car accident when a 15-year-old swerved into my lane of traffic. As a result of the injuries I was flown to Denver for treatment and ended up having surgery on one of my legs.
The insurance company refused to pay my medical bills and did not even make an offer on the case. They even claimed that the knee surgery that I had to have following the wreck was not caused by the wreck. After researching attorneys and their qualifications, I called Bretz & Young for help in getting my medical bills paid. Everything then changed. Bretz & Young got the medical bills paid within less than nine months had my case settled for $230,000.00.
No one wants to be injured, and I certainly would not voluntarily go through such a wreck or suffer these injuries again if I could help it, but it is nice to know that there are caring attorneys available to help when something like this happens. There is a reason that so many people around Kansas and across the country hire Bretz & Young, and there is a reason for the accolades and awards which they have received."

M.K., Kansas:
"My brother was killed when a car hit him as he was walking across the street. The insurance company tried to blame him for the accident even though he was walking in a crosswalk when the wreck occurred. I hired Bretz & Young so that I could get help with the medical bills which my brother incurred before dying. As soon as the insurance company got notice that I hired Bretz & Young, their story changes and the accepted responsibility for the wreck, Matt and Melinda got the medical bills of over $100,000.00 paid and got the funeral bills paid, and had the case settled for the insurance company's policy limits within 15 days!"

W.F., Hutchinson, KS:
"Before I hired Matt Bretz, the insurance company offered $20,000 to settle my wife's claim. Matt Bretz and Melinda Young took the case to trial and got a verdict of over $500,000.00. Pretty good decision on my part."

S.D., Wichita, KS:
"I hired a Wichita lawyer to handle an injury claim. I fired him a year later because he didn't return my telephone calls and hadn't done anything on my case. After hiring Bretz & Young everything changed, and I started getting personal attention. My medical bills got paid. My wages got reimbursed, and the case got settled. Bretz & Young is the one to call if you have a serious accident."

K.T., Lyons, KS:
"After my husband died in a motorcycle accident, the insurance company tried to blame him for the collision. But after I turned to Bretz & Young for help, the insurance company was forced to pay their policy limits to settle my claims. If you have been injured, call Matt Bretz."
