Your life can be altered in an instant when you or a loved one is seriously injured and we know that it is hard to prepare for something like that. The moments following a car accident are a blur, and victims find themselves asking, “What should I do next?” We get that question a lot, and our reply is always the same, “Get better!” The last thing you or your family needs after suffering an injury is getting harassing phone calls and letters from insurance companies, doctors, and even other attorneys! When you retain our office, not only will we fight to make sure that you are properly compensated for your injuries, but we make it a priority to ensure that you are not a victim of such harassment! It’s hard enough recovering from physical injuries, but the mental anguish that is caused due to constant letters and phone calls can be overwhelming.
Our clients are pleasantly surprised at our commitment to this area of practice. While many offices offer personal injury services, we make it a priority. We know that the most critical evidence at the scene of the crash is typically cleaned up within 1 hour. Skid marks, eyewitnesses, and scattered debris become very difficult to locate after that. If we are contacted in time, we will send someone from our offices to the crash site to ensure all of the evidence is gathered and everything is documented. However, most of the time we are not contacted until days after a crash has occurred. In that event, we rely on our close relationships we have formed with local hospitals, EMS, and police departments to gather all of the pertinent evidence. Let our positive reputation and local presence help you!
For personal injuries, we offer free consultations, and you do not pay anything unless we obtain a settlement or verdict in your favor.
Our personal injury practice includes:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Semi-Truck accidents
- Dog Bites
- Premises Liability
- Workplace Injuries
- Slip and Fall
- Product Liability
- Intentional Torts
- Wrongful Death
- Nursing Home Neglect
- Medical Malpractice

Our personal injury practice DOES NOT include:
- Mailing letters, DVDs, etc. after you have been in an accident.
- Showing up at your home, hospital bed, or crash site uninvited in an effort to get your business.
- Requesting crash reports from local law enforcement agencies in an effort to gather information about non-clients.
- Calling non-clients to elicit business.
In this day and age there are too many personal injury attorneys that use the aforementioned tactics to drum up business. We feel as though this is offensive and an invasion of your privacy. We will never engage in that type of harassment as our practice continues to thrive primarily by word of mouth, with some general public advertising mixed in. While other firms will continue to bombard injured people with mail blasts and phone calls, you will NEVER see anything like that come from our firm.
I was in a car accident and tried to handle it on my own. Before settling my case, I decided to get Kyle’s opinion and he advised me that the settlement offer was too low. I retained Kyle and the insurance company stayed firm in their offer. The insurance adjusters repeatedly claimed that I was exaggerating my injuries, but Kyle always believed me that I wasn’t…so much so that he filed a lawsuit in my case, and refused to settle. On the eve of trial, the defense counsel agreed to pay Kyle’s demand. I cannot tell you what a great guy Kyle is! He will go to bat for you!
My family and I used Kyle when we were injured in a car accident. We had no idea what to do, but he guided us step by step through the process.
Kyle continually told us not to worry about the legal side of things, that our only job was to get better…and he meant it! He handled everything for us, and in the end our settlement was more than we ever expected. We couldn’t imagine going through what we did without Kyle on our side.
