After you or someone you love has been injured in an accident due to another’s
negligence, you have the right to seek a recovery of your economic and
noneconomic damages by pursuing a personal injury claim. Although you
have this right, financial compensation is never guaranteed, especially
because the process can be complex and because insurance companies are
aggressive in their attempts to defend against claims and pay victims
as little as possible.
When you depend on a full and fair recovery to pay for your medical bills
and lost income, and to cover your emotional injuries and pain and suffering,
it becomes clear that choosing the right attorney can make all the difference.
At Monee Law Firm, we know that experienced and compassionate representation
is what drives our success and our ability to recover the compensation
clients deserve. In fact, it’s why we have won more than $250 million
on behalf of our clients since 1996.
As we know that many injured victims and families have little familiarity
with personal injury law and the characteristics they should be looking
for in an attorney, we wanted to provide a list of factors you should
be considering when choosing legal representation in your case:
Experience – Experience is a critical indicator of an attorney’s professional
abilities. New and young attorneys simply don’t have experience
handling all types of cases, including the case you may have, and lack
insight into common strategies used by insurance companies and other defendants
that defend against claims. They may also lack familiarity with local
courts, professional connections with experts who can strengthen cases,
and knowledge of how to best approach challenging cases. At Montee Law
Firm, our legal team draws from over 100 years of collective experience
to handle even the toughest cases. Since 1996, our team has handled the
full range of injury cases for clients throughout Kansas City, Missouri,
Kansas, and the U.S. Our experience entails more than just years in practice;
it represents decades of hard work and proven results.
Practice Area – When choosing a personal injury lawyer, you want to select an
attorney who focuses their practice on personal injury law. Often, many
lawyers spread themselves thin by practicing multiple disciplines of law.
This means they don’t devote the same amount of time or energy to
handling injury cases. Our legal team focuses solely on personal injury
and cases involving injuries caused by negligence, including those involving
defective products, unsafe premises, and medical malpractice. Personal
injury is all we do, which is why we have accumulated the breadth of experience
and insight needed to help clients succeed.
Record of Success – Past results do not indicate future success, but they do speak
volumes about the types of cases attorneys have handled and the types
of results they have secured. Our more than $250 million in recoveries
includes successful results in all types of injury cases, from construction
and car accidents to medical malpractice and product liability. They have
also come by way of settlements and verdicts, which speaks to our trial
skills and the versatility we leverage when insurance companies fail to
make fair offers and litigation becomes necessary. Some personal injury
attorneys don’t have this type of success, and only settle claims
quickly and for less money than lawyers who have the ability to litigate.
You can see from our
verdicts and settlements that we’re capable of producing solid results in a range of circumstances.
Client Testimonials – Looking at what former clients have to say about the type of representation
and support they received from an attorney can help you understand the
type of service they provide. Sometimes, clients will have negative things
to say about the skills or abilities of lawyers. Other times, and most
commonly, they voice complaints about the level of service they received.
At our firm, we have cultivated a positive reputation among the local
communities because we put clients first and treat them as real people,
not numbers. Clients always have access to our attorneys when they have
questions or concerns, and we work to keep them apprised about their rights
and the progress of their cases. We also make ourselves available for
weekend, evening, hospital, and home appointments because we know that
injuries can happen at any time, and that victims often want to learn
about their rights immediately after the accident. Clients are happy with
the work we do, and they appreciate the time we take in making their experience
as positive as possible.
