Why hire an attorney? Dealing with the responsible party and their insurance company can be a lengthy, frustrating, and emotional process. An attorney can often obtain more money for your claim than you can obtain on your own. The goal of an insurance company is to resolve your claim as quickly and for as little as possible. The goal of your attorney is to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries and ensure that you are protected in the future. Your attorney's sole job is to work on your behalf and fight the insurance company, in court if necessary, to obtain the best possible outcome for you. If an insurance company has offered you a settlement and urged you to accept it, it is critical that you consult with an attorney prior to signing any release. Without an attorney, you may be signing away your right to additional compensation for your injuries.

Settlements

Reviews

KKC represents individuals in a variety of personal injury claims, including: 

Automobile and Motorcycle Accidents 
If you’ve been injured in an automobile or motorcycle accident, you may be eligible for compensation for injuries you’ve suffered and/or property damage you have experienced. In cases with severe injuries and in cases that involve criminal activity (hit and run, driving under the influence, driving under suspension, reckless behavior, or violations of laws and regulations, etc.), it is critical to retain an attorney to ensure that you are receiving the full value of your claim. Under these and other exceptional circumstances, you may be entitled to an award of punitive damages in addition to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. An attorney knows when to make a claim for punitive damages on your behalf.

What To Do If You've Been in a Car Accident

Slip and Fall Accidents 
Injuries that are proven to be the result of negligence on the part of a homeowner, business owner, or property owner, such as slippery floors, uneven stairs, loose or torn carpet, structural deficiencies, inadequate lighting, or icy walkways (also referred to as premises liability) are eligible for compensation. 

Dog Bites 
If you’re the victim of a dog bite or attack resulting in puncture wounds, scars, broken bones, or other injury, we will assess the value of your case and locate sources of recovery for you. 

Dog Bites: What You Need to Know from a Legal Perspective

Medical Malpractice
Do you believe you were improperly treated by a medical provider? Mistakes or negligence by a doctor, nurse, or other medical personnel can cause serious harm to a patient. Types of negligence include: misdiagnosis, failure to treat, prescription or surgical errors, birth injuries, or nursing home neglect or abuse.

Product Liability 
Product liability injuries include those that are the result of recalled, defective, and unsafe products, and manufacturers of these products may be held responsible for those injuries.

Wrongful Death 
If you are a spouse, child, parent, or sibling of someone who has passed away due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional behavior of another, you may be able to receive compensation. KKC can represent the estate of the deceased individual and pursue the responsible party for losses incurred as a result of their death. This includes medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost earnings or prospective inheritance, and pain and suffering.

The only way to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve is to hire an experienced attorney to represent your best interests. We will work aggressively on your case so you can focus on getting yourself back to health. Please don’t delay. Claims have time limitations, sometimes as short as 90 days, which may preclude recovery. Call today for your free consultation and find out why our clients are so satisfied with our representation.
