What is your slip, trip, or fall claim worth?
A personal injury can be both physically and emotionally painful. Your life can take a drastic turn in an instant. Then you are suddenly dealing with doctors and medical procedures. You may not be able to move as you did before. You may not even be able to work, as the bills related to your injury mount.

How much is my personal injury case worth?
There is no easy answer to this question. It depends on many different factors, as each case is different. We will review all details of the incident when you meet with us for a free case evaluation.
When determining how much compensation you are owed, we will consider your losses. Those include past and future medical bills for treating your injury. We will add in any lost wages and loss of earning capacity if you are unable to work because of your injury. We also consider the pain and suffering you have endured from being injured. We may also seek punitive damages.
One thing you won’t have to worry about is our fees. You owe us nothing until we are successful. If you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.
What can I expect during my Independence personal injury case?
You can expect experienced, compassionate and aggressive representation of your interests. We will take on the other party’s lawyers and the insurance company. We have settled many cases involving negligence. Others we have won in court. We will do whatever it takes to make sure you are compensated.
We will begin by conducting a thorough investigation of your accident. We’ll document your injury and examine all documents related to it. We will gather evidence and interview witnesses. We will consult experts. We’ll build the strongest case we possibly can.
Then we will press forward. The other party’s lawyers and the insurance companies will try to deny responsibility. They may try to blame you for what happened. Or they may try to lowball you with a small settlement offer. We will keep pressing forward until they do what’s right.
Personal injury cases can take anywhere from months to years to resolve. But we will not stop fighting until we come through for you.
