What makes Bishop & Hayes P.C. a great law firm to represent you and your family in your auto accident claim is that at our law firm Auto Injury is All We Do.

The reason that attorneys Brad Bishop and Tim Hayes have dedicated their practice to advocate for auto injury victims is because they have witnessed firsthand the tragic impact of a serious auto injury has on the victims and their families. As local attorneys in Springfield Missouri and Joplin Missouri we believe there is nothing more important than to help these victims protect their legal rights, receive the full compensation owned to them, so they can start their recovery.

Personal Injury Attorneys Joplin and Springfield Missouri

Personal Injury in Springfield Missouri and Joplin Missouri as well as the entire Ozarks is very serious business. Our experienced attorneys have witnessed victims not receiving a fair settlement as they were working with the insurance companies directly and did not have the legal expertise or ability to handle the legal matters simply because they were trying to deal with the tragic events caused by the personal injury at hand. At Bishop & Hayes P.C. we are here to help you and your family, we believe that we can take the legal burden off your shoulders and all you to focus on your family, on your recovery.

The difference between other law firms and Bishop & Hayes P.C.

First, at Bishop & Hayes P.C. we have the experience and knowledge when it comes to Auto Injury Law to generate successful case outcomes. Many other law firms aside from dividing their focus on different categories of law also will have associate attorneys manage your case, which means that your case will be handled by an attorney who lacks years of case and trial experience. This is important because many times inexperienced attorneys simply do not have the knowledge and experience when it comes to researching and managing insurance companies, hospital and medical records. At Bishop & Hayes P.C., the only attorneys that will handle your case from start to finish are Brad Bishop and Tim Hayes.

The most important aspect of any case is getting you the outcome that you deserve, not what the insurance company thinks you deserve. For the last 15 years attorneys, Brad Bishop and Time Hayes have worked tirelessly perfecting their process to deliver the best possible case outcomes. At Bishop & Hayes P.C., it is always about you, your family, and getting you the result you deserve.

Put Experience on Your Side

We believe that your case is too important to be handled by inexperienced associates. Brad Bishop and Tim Hayes have extensive experience in personal injury law and have been successfully representing people in the four-state areas of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas since 1996. Since auto accident law is all we do, we do not spend our energy and resources on other types of injury law. We do not sue doctors, as they are frequently the most important people in proving an injury in an auto accident case. We do not sue local small businesses for worker's compensation or slip and fall cases. They are regularly the primary source for proof of a lost wage claim from an auto accident.

  • personal injury accident survivor My wife and I were coming down the highway when a guy made a left hand turn right in front of our vehicle without seeing us. We struck him head on. The insurance company said they were going to take care of everything, but as the bills kept pouring in; it was my credit being affected, it was my door they were beating on wanting money. So my wife had seen a commercial for Bishop and Hayes, so when we met with them everything was explained to us in layman’s terms so we could understand what was going on. We lost a lot in that crash, Bishop and Hayes made sure we got what we deserved out of our accident.

  • car accident testimonial My husband was involved in a traffic accident and was killed while riding his motorcycle. My husband and I were raising two grandsons at the time. With his death I had a lot of fear of how I was going to make it through this difficult time and continue to provide for my grandsons. If I was talking to anyone who suffered a loss like I have and need legal representation I would not hesitate to refer them to Bishop and Hayes P.C. Without them I truly do not know where I would be today.

  • car accident survivor Dealing with my injuries I didn’t know what was going to happen next. I don’t know what to do; it was overwhelming. I didn’t want to get walked allover. The insurance company was already trying to settle with me and I felt the amount they offered was way too small. So I just needed someone on my side. As soon as I hired Bishop and Hayes P.C. all my bills came to them, all the telephone calls from bill collectors stopped; it was just a relief. I got to concentrate on healing as opposed to worrying about my financial future. I was very happy with the outcome of my claim and everything that Bishop and Hayes provided.
