How Bishop & Hayes P.C. Can Help You and Your Family

Unlike other legal firms, our practice is exclusively focused on auto injury. We do not divide our time, attention and resources among various disciplines. Auto injury law is truly all we do. We are not like other firms that rely on inexperienced legal associates to do the work. 

When you hire our firm, Brad Bishop or Tim Hayes personally handle your case. Additionally, we do our own investigation and have a network of experts standing by to help us make the best case possible on your behalf.

At Bishop & Hayes, P.C., we have seen every type of accident. We understand that although each accident is unique, there are usually some underlying factors in common. One of those factors is that insurance companies try to minimize their liability and reduce the amount of compensation that is paid out. 

No matter the cause of the accident, whoever is at fault, or how severe the damage and injuries may be, most accidents come down to regular people fighting to be fairly treated and adequately compensated.

We handle most types of motor vehicle accident cases, including: 

Your best chance at receiving fair and full compensation for your injuries is by hiring a Joplin car accident lawyer. Insurance companies will try to take advantage of unrepresented injury victims, offering them settlements significantly less than their case is worth. Let us help you get the largest possible verdict or settlement.

We Can Reduce Your Medical Bills

Car accidents have a way of completely turning your life upside down. From the immediate damage to your vehicle, to medical bills, lost wages and even reduced earning potential due to permanent disability, auto accidents generally add a lot of stress to life. If an accident leads to severe injuries, or even loss of life it can forever change the course of your life.

As experienced car accident lawyers, we have detailed knowledge of the medical and insurance industry, along with applicable state laws. For example, there are laws that allow medical providers to place liens against your insurance policy. These liens ensure that the provider gets paid for their services from the policy’s payout.

We can generally negotiate reductions in medical bills to help our clients keep more of their settlement. We have experience reducing medical bills by between 20% and 60%. The goal of this service is to make sure that victims of auto accidents do not end up with lost wages, physical injuries, and a mountain of medical bills that they cannot pay.

Bishop & Hayes, P.C. has the experience it takes to help negotiate medical bills on your behalf. We can help our clients get better rates and reduce medical liability through our knowledge of Missouri state laws and local providers in Joplin. This is not information that insurance companies volunteer, but it is a service we offer to benefit our clients.

Compensation After a Car Accident

Our lawyers handle complex injuries and wrongful death claims to help you recover the compensation you need and deserve after an auto crash. We pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages, costs, and noneconomic damages.

When calculating your damages, we consider the full scope of losses you suffered now and throughout your life. Future treatments, diminished earning capacity, loss of enjoyment of life, disabilities, pain and suffering are not theoretical concepts, but real losses you sustained and for which you should be compensated. We have the experience and knowledge to accurately calculate your damages and to recover the maximum possible damages for your injuries.

Our goal is to put as much money in your hands as we can so you can concentrate on recovering your health, independence and enjoyment of life. As part of this strategy, we negotiate with your health care providers to reduce medical bills and arrange for reasonably priced treatment options. This means that more of your insurance payout goes directly to you instead of doctors, hospitals, and labs.

Why Experience Matters

At Bishop & Hayes, we know how important it is to have a legal team that knows what it takes to win cases. Our partners handle your claim from consultation to recovery so that you can get the benefit of over half a century of combined experience. Our Joplin motor vehicle accident lawyers have recovered millions of dollars for our clients. 

We are aggressive litigators that work with a team of experts and investigators to get you the most money for your case. Inexperienced attorneys may not have had time to develop comprehensive strategies for dealing with unyielding insurance companies or have yet to take a case to trial. We have helped thousands of clients with dedicated advocacy and a client-first mantra that includes same-day returned calls and emails.
