I had a horrible shoulder dislocation injury. I found Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys on Google and in the phone book. I called several places but it was just the demeanor and the manner that Victor spoke with me and the quickness that he responded back (that made me hire him). The first meeting was good. Vic came out closer to where I live, since I was injured, and met me and went over everything really thorough(ly) with me. I was pretty impressed.
I didn’t try working with the insurance company before hiring an attorney. I knew the injury was so severe and after I left the emergency room, they didn’t want to take care of me at work. They basically didn’t even send me to the doctor, I had to take myself. So I knew it was something I was going to need assistance (with).
Vic kept me well informed. He answered any questions that I had, returned my calls in a timely manner. He would always return my phone calls within a day. If not, Diane would get back to me and let me know (that he was in court) and he’d call me from his cell phone before he even got back to the office. He took care of me really well and made sure they took care of everything that needed to be done. I think Vic cared about me. He made sure I went to another doctor after I had seen the work comp doctor to make sure that I was being treated fairly and was given the right rating. I really appreciate him doing that.
I think Vic is knowledgeable. He seemed to know his stuff. He knew all the different bones and body parts. I didn’t really expect that from an attorney but Vic does a lot of research and takes care of you.
I liked the way he handled negotiations. He battled it out for me. (The insurance company was) really, really trying to low ball me. He got me more than double of what they were trying to give. He did take me out of the room and discuss things with me and then take me back into the room with the other attorneys and the mediator. That way we could have our private conversation and not have to have everything out in the open which I thought was really good. I had a previous injury to that shoulder in the past and they were really trying to stick that to me but Vic battled it out with them and said, “Look he’s never had to have surgery before.” I was really pleased.
I did have some issues with the payment not showing up at my place anymore. Victor set it up so the payment would come to the office so when it came, it came on time and I could come down here and pick it up. It was great.
I think KCAIA is one of the better attorney law firms especially (since I had) Victor as my attorney.I believe he did get the best possible results. I’m 100% satisfied. I think that this firm and Vic did everything they could to make sure I was taken care of the way that I needed to be. I’d recommend Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, their staff and Victor to anyone out there who has been injured and doesn’t feel they are being treated right. I think that anytime you have to have a surgery because of a work injury, you absolutely need to have an attorney on your side and Vic would be my go to guy.Shane A.
