I Was Hurt in a Car Accident, Do I Need an Attorney?


At Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci, we are committed to helping clients
in Joplin with their accident and injury claims. If you have been involved
in a car accident and suffered an injury, you might be entitled to financial
compensation. Visit our law office today to speak with our experienced
attorneys and find out how we can help secure the maximum amount of compensation
you deserve.

Even if you think you can handle the car wreck claim on your own, talk
with an attorney at Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci first. Too often people
settle their car wreck cases by taking the first offer and do not realize
they are entitled to more money. While each case is different, you should
make sure that any settlement offer includes full and fair payments for
the following things:

  • Property Damage
  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain & Suffering
  • Inconvenience
  • Future Issues Related to Your Injury

What Can Go Wrong with My Case If I Don’t Talk to an Attorney?

If you don’t consult with an experienced lawyer to discuss your legal
options, you might end up being taken advantage of by the insurance company.
Many people settle their claim cheap and quick only to learn they have
some ongoing issues or need a future surgery. Unfortunately, the day you
finally settle your claim is the last day you can ask for more money,
after that it’s too late.

Other times, people will wait to settle their claims until they are done
treating their injury, but fail to collect the accident information they
need to convince the insurance company to pay fair value. After an accident,
it is important to collect and preserve witness statements, driver’s
logs, or video evidence that can help prove the circumstances of the accident.
Having strong evidence like pictures and videos can significantly impact
the value of your settlement and help you obtain a fair offer.

Lastly, insurance companies are often rude, pushy, and, frankly, a pain
to deal with. Your job should be concentrating on getting well or helping
your loved one recover. The last thing you need to do is try and figure
out how to negotiate with a claims professional who literally does this
for a living every day. Insurance companies only care about the bottom
line and not about you. If you want the fair value of your case, you need
the skills of trained legal professional on your side.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice caps: ineffective wherever they\’re tried

Every state in the nation wrestles with decisions over how best to serve its citizens. In Missouri, we have repeatedly wrestled with different approaches on the how to handle cases in which patients are harmed by doctor or hospital negligence. Florida is currently faced with similar decisions on medical malpractice after its state Supreme Court held that caps on noneconomic damages were unconstitutional, much as the Missouri high court ruled

Wrongful Death

Young life cut short on Missouri jobsite

We read recently of a young man who was just 22 years old when his life came to an end without warning and without reason. He was at work as an apprentice ironworker — a new job he had only held for a few weeks — when he fell from a steel girder just nine inches wide. The fall of more than 30 feet killed him. According to a statement
