Personal Injury Attorney

The Richard Law Firm advocates for seriously injured people and their families.  We understand that when tragedy strikes, people want to know what went wrong so they can help make sure it doesn’t happen again.
We uncover the truth, resolve the critical questions, and pursue justice.  We work hard to get results for our clients.

We try cases.  While other firms may want to settle quickly, we have decades of trial expertise to rely on.  We plan to try every case we take. However, there are times when settling is in your best interests.  We’ll help determine the right approach for your case.  When necessary, we have the courage, experience and know-how to take your case to trial.

Cases We Handle.  We handle a variety of personal injury cases, including severe injury and wrongful death caused by vehicle accidents of all types, trucking and semi-truck accidents, brain injury, medical malpractice, and construction site accidents.

If you or someone you love has been injured, you need outstanding advocates on your side.  Please call us.  We can help.

We believe that the jury system and jury trials are essential to our democracy.  We are passionate about trying the cases that need to be heard and decided by a jury.

 “Trial by jury is a wise distribution of power which exceeds all other modes of trial.”  Edward Coke

Wrongful Death

It is devastating when someone you love has died as a result of negligent conduct, such as medical negligence, commercial vehicle wrecks, or other wrongdoing that results in the loss of human life. We handle wrongful death cases, using the justice system to uncover the truth and hold the responsible parties accountable.  Our work also helps drive positive changes in policies to improve safety.

Our firm has experience with the tragic cases that involve a wrongful death.  We understand and can help a family that is struggling with the emotional and financial shock of losing a loved one.  We are experienced at helping family members that are in the midst of an extremely painful event.  We work hard to get justice for that family.

Brain Injury

A significant brain injury can impact the very essence of our personality and who we are.  We rely on the brain for every process of our mind and body.  A brain injury can harm our ability to think, to work, to move, to communicate, and to connect with other people.

We provide powerful advocacy for individuals who have suffered significant brain injuries. We understand that brain injuries can involve a long and difficult path for patients, family members, friends and caregivers.  We work to get justice for you.

While we work to maximize your financial recovery, we also support our clients’ physical and emotional recovery.  We listen to you and work with you on helpful solutions.

Smart, Strong Advocates for a Person with a Brain Injury.

Brain injuries are uniquely challenging because they are often invisible to the casual observer.  We understand the challenge of conveying to the jury the magnitude of a serious brain injury.  We work with respected and highly-trained experts to convey the anatomical and physiological impacts of our client’s brain injury.  What sets us apart is that we go beyond the physiological evidence.

We have the training to explore and understand our client’s life before they were injured and then to contrast that to their life now.

We spend time with our clients and we listen to them and their families.  We patiently work to understand the outwardly invisible but devastating aspects of their brain injury, such as the memory and concentration problems, fatigue, pain and the other life altering changes.  We work at deeply understanding what our client has lost so that we can powerfully convey it to the jury.  We are successful when the jury or other decision-maker can fully appreciate what our client is living through.

There is only one opportunity to build your case and get you a successful result.  We work to hold the responsible parties accountable and to ensure that you receive full and fair compensation.


When a semi-truck or tractor trailer crashes into a car or SUV, the physics are devastating, usually causing death and/or serious injuries to passengers.  While many truck drivers follow the law, wrecks can occur when companies choose to ignore traffic laws or safety regulations, or fail to use good judgment.  Sometimes truck drivers use drugs or speed to meet deadlines or work excessively long hours.

Preparing a Truck Accident Case

We work hard to make sure that our clients recover the compensation they deserve. Our goal is to uncover the real cause of the wreck.  We work with recognized
experts to carefully investigate all aspects of the wreck. We persist until we uncover the evidence that shows the choices the truck driver and trucking company made.

We employ sophisticated accident reconstruction methods to recreate the crash.  Semi-truck accidents often involve multiple vehicles.  Detailed accident reconstruction is often important in order to show the court and the jury what happened in the collision.

The evidence we have obtained from the wreck and thorough accident reconstruction simulation are often critical arrows in our quiver for trial. In addition, the other crucial evidence we develop is a thorough understanding of you or your loved one and what this wreck has done to you.  Once we have marshalled all of this evidence and are thoroughly prepared to show the jury what happened to you, we are ready for trial.


Standing Up To Trucking Companies

We love a challenge and the opportunity to take on trucking companies and their insurance companies in court.
