I was injured in a collision when a car made an illegal u-turn in front of me. I ended up having two surgeries and being taken off work for months. The insurance company offered only $8900. A friend referred me to Matt Bretz and Melinda Young.
When they took over my claim, everything changed. Matt and Melinda were able to get my medical bills and lost wages from the accident paid. They got additional medical treatment for me, and a release of the hospital's lien for unpaid bills. On top of all that, they got me $100,000.00 for settlement on the eve of trial. With this the insurer for the person who caused the injuries will be responsible for the injuries instead of me.
I was involved in an accident with a drunk driver whose BAC was almost 3 times the legal limit. I was flown to KU Medical Center in Kansas City and was there for surgery and extended hospitalization. When I got out of the hospital I was unable to walk, was confined to a wheelchair, and since I had no health insurance I had over $200K in medical bills.
My parents were referred to Matt Bretz. The next morning Matt drove to Kansas City, met with us, and agreed to help me. The doctors took care of my medical treatment and Matt took care of everything else, including the medical bills, lost wages, and living expenses while I was recovering from the injuries.
Matt has helped me throughout every step of the process. Even though he has cases all over Kansas and is often on the road, I have always been able to reach him because his cell number is printed on his business card! He has even come to my house so that I would not have to travel. My medical condition has improved and I am now back to work. With Matt I have been treated like a person, not a number. Matt has now reached two settlements for me and is working on the medical bills.
Bretz Law Offices was the best decision that my parents and I could have made. I recommend anyone who is seriously injured to call Matt.
My husband died as a result of a car accident caused by a lady who pulled out in front of him on the highway. I hired a local attorney who does a lot of advertising but fired him several months later when he hadn't done anything to move the case along or to keep the medical providers from harassing me about the bills.
I eventually was referred to Matt Bretz for help in getting the medical and funeral bills. paid. Within days of being referred to Matt I learned first-hand why he has received so many honors in Kansas and even nationally. He treated me with compassion and was able to get the medical and funeral bills paid, and then he got the case settled for $350,000.00. To my amazement after Matt got the case settled the first attorney wanted a chunk of the settlement even though he had not done anything on the case or even returned many of my phone calls.
I was lucky that I got a second chance and was referred to Matt Bretz. If you have lost a loved one, call Bretz and Young right away and don't risk your future on someone else.
I would hire this attorney again in a heartbeat! His office kept me informed with updates and his staff was very knowledgable and helpful. The outcome of my case was better than I had even hoped for and I have medical treatment covered in the future in case I need it.
