What Makes My Firm Different
What You Can Expect From Me
When you walk into my office you can expect honesty, integrity and personal service. I understand how devastating an injury is, not just for you, but for your entire family. It’s my job to make the negligent party and the insurance company understand that too.
What I really enjoy about my job is helping you get back on your feet, start living a normal life or as much as possible from that point forward.
It’s not just the injury you have to overcome, but all the emotional and financial obstacles that come with it. Medical bills, lost wages and countless other damages can turn life upside down for you and your family.
I fight to get you the compensation you deserve as quickly as possible. Many attorneys will attempt to file a lawsuit from the start. Which can mean years of struggling before your case is resolved. I don’t operate that way. I’ll make every effort to settle your case as quickly as possible to avoid a long, stressful, and frustrating trial.
I’ve handled tens of thousands of auto injury cases and my settlements have have totaled over $75 million in compensation for my clients. So I truly hope you do not need my services, but if you do, contact me today and together we can create the right plan of attack for you and your family.

Motorcycle Crash in Springfield Missouri
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.
Why I Practice Exclusively in Auto Injury Law
By David W. Ransin
“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.
For over 34 years 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.”
