Very few people ever expect to need a personal injury attorney. Yet a life-changing accident or injury can happen instantly, causing pain, disability, and financial devastation from the combination of medical bills and lost income. In such a situation, almost anyone would need a little help getting back on their feet. At Schwartz & Park, L.L.P., helping people in Northwest Kansas put their lives back together is what we do.
Of course, not every injury is someone's fault. Often, though, an accident or injury can be traced to someone who did something they shouldn't have, or who failed to do something they should have. When someone has breached a duty to others, like the duty to drive safely, and that breach causes injury, that is called negligence. If you have been injured by the negligence of another person or entity, you are entitled to compensation.
Even if you don't think your injury merits a lawsuit, it's still a good idea to talk to a knowledgeable personal injury attorney. Here's why: a consultation doesn't obligate you to take any action, and it offers you valuable insights into your likely financial needs as you recover as well as to the options available to you. A serious injury can make life seem out of control; learning what you can do about it puts some control back in your hands.
At Schwartz & Park, L.L.P. we've seen many accident victims and handled many injury cases. We know that physical recovery can often take much longer than our clients hope or expect, and that what they want most is for life to just get back to normal. Because of this, they are often tempted to accept the first settlement they are offered by an insurance company, in an attempt to put the injury behind them. Very often, that is a mistake that prevents accident victims from later pursuing more compensation when they discover it's needed.
We offer clients the legal and personal support they need to pursue the compensation that will truly allow them to get back on their feet. Among the accident and injury cases we handle are:
At Schwartz & Park, L.L.P. we are knowledgeable negotiators, well-versed in the tactics of insurance companies and their defense attorneys, and we have a long record of excellent settlement outcomes. We also have extensive courtroom experience, and diligently prepare every personal injury case as though it will go to trial. We know that doing so gives us the strongest bargaining position on behalf of our clients and results in the best results. We work efficiently, and we do not charge our clients an attorney fee unless we recover money for them.
We make it a priority to keep clients informed at every stage of their accident or personal injury case, and we advise them as to the pros and cons of any course of action, but the decision whether to proceed with a lawsuit or to accept a settlement is always theirs.
We strive to be both compassionate and honest at all times, treating our clients as we would want our own families to be treated.
