personal injury lawyers

The Dickerson Oxton Law Firm handles personal injury matters and represents innocent victims and their families against those responsible parties. If you are deciding on whether or not to accept the insurance company’s settlement offer or sue for higher damages, a Kansas City personal injury lawyer at our firm can help. We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay nothing unless we successfully recover money on your behalf.

What to look for when choosing a personal injury attorney in Kansas City

You’ve suffered a personal injury. You’re probably facing hefty medical bills and lost wages from missing time at work. You may never be able to return to your old job or enjoy the quality of life you had. At Dickerson Oxton Law Firm, we understand the hardships accident victims undergo. That’s why we want to help you make the best decision possible when choosing your personal injury lawyer. To maximize your odds of achieving a settlement, look for these three things in a law firm:

Experience

Choose a law firm that primarily represents personal injury cases. Find out if the firm typically represents plaintiffs or defendants. An attorney with more experience representing plaintiffs will be your better choice. Your Kansas City personal injury lawyer should have experience handling the practice area your case falls into. Review a law firm’s testimonials to find out what prior clients are saying about their representation.

Honesty

Your attorneys should be straightforward, transparent, and honest with you about their expectations for your case. Be wary of “guaranteed settlements,” as no law firm can promise this. Instead, choose a firm that will work with you to achieve the settlement you have in mind – one with as little hassle as possible, one higher than your insurance offer, or one that’s as much money as possible – no matter what it takes. You should be comfortable with how your attorney decides to proceed with your case.

Personality

Your lawyer should give you the impression that he or she truly cares about your plight and will do as much as possible to help. You need an attorney that will be there to answer your questions, keep you updated on the status of your claim, and work hard to get you the award you deserve. Most personal injury attorneys offer a free, no-obligation case evaluation. Take advantage of this offer by talking with a few different law firms and choosing the one that resonates with you.
