“None of the people I have helped after serious injuries or deaths were involved in an accident. All of those crashes could and should have been prevented. Someone was speeding, drinking, distracted or just didn’t look twice.”
“I have found purpose in my work each day fighting for the hardworking people in our community. My clients are more important than the money I make fighting for them. I work with clients who care more about getting back to their lives, rather than focusing on getting a big “payday” from their case.
This doesn’t mean that I am not focused on getting the best economic results for my clients (I do), but my “bottom line” is not a number, it is people. That is why I work with reasonable clients who prioritize their health and happiness over money. So I truly hope you never need my services, but if you know someone who does I would appreciate it if you kept me in mind.”
Victims of catastrophic accidents face serious personal injuries, including the potential for traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury. These afflictions will not only require immediate medical attention, but often life-long rehabilitative care. David Ransin works closely with each of his clients to move the case forward efficiently so they can move on and have the best quality of life possible.

Statement from David Ransin “Over the past 35 years, I’ve helped hundreds of families work through tragedies involving one or more of their children, mostly from various types of vehicle crashes. In the last 15 years, this has begun to include children who were injured or killed by some type of abuse.
A large part of my practice has always included motorcycle riders, and it was while representing those clients that I was introduced to B.A.C.A., and learned for the first time what a great service the members of this volunteer organization provides behind the scenes for children who have been abused, and their families.
B.A.C.A. does not seek publicity, yet it deserves much more publicity so our community can fully appreciate the very important and vital protection and support B.A.C.A. provides to the most vulnerable in our society. I ride, but I am not eligible to become a B.A.C.A. member, nonetheless, I want to do what I can to support B.A.C.A. with this donation so that its members will have solid financial security for decades to come, thus enabling them to focus on their critical tasks protecting abused children and their families.”
I was recently stopped by a stranger at the grocery store and they asked me, “why do you say you hope you never need my services in your TV ads?” Over the last several weeks I have been asked this question again and again. I thought it was important to share my response on my website so everyone could find understanding in this message. The short answer is my passion is helping to prevent carelessness that causes injuries and deaths to folks in our community. My devotion is to helping those who are unfortunate enough to suffer from the carelessness of others.
This is why I say, “I hope you never need my services, but if you know someone who does I would appreciate if you kept me in mind.” Because this is how I truly feel. There is nothing more important to me than doing everything I can to help promote safety in our community. When you sit on this side of the table and have personally worked with so many good people who didn’t deserve what happened to them it really puts things in perspective. So please don’t drive distracted, take two extra seconds to look for motorcycles and buckle up.
One of the most important aspects of our injury firm is that we provide our clients with unparalleled communication, personal relationships and the ability to create a dynamic partnership with our clients. Attorney David W. Ransin, since 1982 has been working with injury victims in order to help them fight for what is fair.
We help clients recover monetary damages for their injuries at the full rate of compensation they deserve. We pride ourselves in this ability and have proven since 1982, that our law firm can help you do just that.
At Ransin Injury Law we have been a proud supporter of Motorcycle Safety and Awareness since 1982. David is a motorcycle enthusiast who enjoys trail riding. However, given his vast experiences in helping motorcyclists and families that have been forever affected due to the negligence of another driver, does not ride street.
While we hope you never need our services, if you do, please continue onto our motorcycle accidents page. We also encourage you to read through our motorcycle safety and awareness page and watch interviews and view photographs from area riders.
The Crash: My client was on his motorcycle going through an intersection on a green light, and was hit by defendant’s car as defendant turned in front of him while trying to make the left turn on a yellow light. The collision caused him to be thrown off his motorcycle. He was hospitalized for 2 weeks, during which time he underwent multiple surgeries to repair his broken bones and fractures. The client was then in a rehab hospital for another 2 weeks before being released home, at which point he was non weight bearing and unable to work.
Medical Bills: He had about $200,000.00 in medical bills as a result of his treatments.
Case Summary: My client hired another attorney in town, but became unhappy with how the attorney was handling the case, so he decided to fire that attorney and hire me. I found out that the defendant had a minimum coverage policy, and the $25,000.00 limits of that policy were being offered by the insurance company. I brought the case to mediation and was able to get a 4.5 times higher settlement than what was offered by the insurance company. I also was able to negotiate with medical providers to get my client’s medical bills knocked down from $200,000 to $40,000. This allowed my client to save $160,000 just from his medical bills.
At Ransin Injury Law, we have over four decades of semi-truck and commercial vehicle case experience. In this time, we have developed the resources, and practices needed to fight large trucking companies and their insurance providers.

All you really wish for is that the accident had never happened in the first place. All you want is to get back to work, stop hurting, get back to the life you had before the crash. You want to get rid of the added financial and work pressures that you are currently experiencing. In short: you want to go back to the way things were before the crash. But you are a realist. You know the decision is on your shoulders. Nothing good will happen until you take the first step. First, you are worried about the cost. It will cost you nothing to hire us, so don’t worry about that. Second, the crash, and your injuries, are not going to magically disappear, so you really have only two options:
So, you’ve made the decision to hire an attorney, but there certainly are plenty of attorneys in Springfield, Missouri, so you don’t know what to do. You’ve just spent several minutes reading my website to learn how I can help you, and now you are thinking about contacting me. Why is that? What is it about me and my personal injury law firm that appeals to you? If you have come this far I think it’s because you are the type of client that over many decades I have proudly and most successfully represented.
**If this list describes you, then let me mention a few other reasons that the Ransin Injury Law team the right choice for you.**
I don’t accept every case that calls. I only represent clients that have been seriously injured in a motorcycle, bicycle, car, truck or pedestrian crash. That’s my expertise and that’s how my office’s reputation and resources are focused. But that’s not all. I only accept cases where my client suffered significant injuries, and I don’t mean just a simple stiff neck, sore back or a skinned knee. My clients require legitimate medical care and often surgery and ongoing therapy. Does this describe your situation?
While I believe that it is my job to resolve your claim on the best terms possible, and it is your job to focus on getting better, you always will be informed of and involved in all major decisions regarding your case. I promise prompt responses to emails and phone calls. You will be fully informed about and comfortable with the way your case is progressing.
Any attorney can file a claim or a lawsuit, that’s easy. Any attorney can ask the insurance company to make an offer, and then settle your case. What you need is someone who is able and willing to do the hard work to make sure the insurance company does the right thing, not just the easy thing. The insurance companies know who only bluffs, and who really goes all the way when it is necessary. If your attorney has no history of taking cases to trial by a jury on a regular basis, taking cases up on appeal, or going all the way to the Missouri Supreme Court when necessary, then your attorney lacks the reputation to get the top dollar settlement in your case. The goal is settle your case, but if all an attorney does is settle, never fighting all the way, then the insurance company knows it can get a discount since the attorney cannot or will not regularly back up their threats with real action, and real results. Those cases end up settling for less than full, fair value for the client.
When your case is resolved, if you don’t have health insurance, or even if you do, you are now experiencing medical expenses that you hadn’t planned on. Our team can regularly negotiates lower medical costs meaning that your bills will get paid off, and the net value of your settlement or judgment will be greater.
So there you have it. All that’s missing is you taking the first step. It’s your call…literally. Why not pick up the phone now and call 417-881-8282 or click on the blue “chat” button on the left side of this page. Make an appointment, no cost, no obligation. Meet me and my team and decide for yourself. That’s the first step in getting all this off your shoulders so you can focus on getting better, taking care of your family, and moving your case toward a successful, fair resolution.
