I’m writing to highly endorse attorney Steve Knapp for you or your loved ones who may be seriously injured or killed by the acts of another person. Steve spent 3 ½ years helping me through a very stressful and difficult process of settling my serious and permanent injury claims with the State Department of Transportation and its contractor after I crashed my motorcycle in a construction zone one night on I-5. I’m very lucky that Steve got involved in my case early on. Steve immediately began gathering evidence to support my claim that the onramp had been left in a negligent condition which caused me to crash that night. Steve kept telling me that the facts of my case were like “spokes in a wheel” and his goal was to build me a wheel full of spokes, which he did do. The State and its contractor denied any responsibility to me for more than three years after my accident. They claimed the accident was entirely my fault or someone else’s fault other than theirs. But Steve was relentless and left no stone unturned in working up my case. He went to the DOT archives and found great records for my case; he investigated the accident scene; and he located and met with several witnesses and got written statements from them in support of my case. I was able to sit in on a few depositions of witnesses, and watching Steve was great. He was very prepared for each one, and he seemed to almost know what each witness would say, even before they said it. He was able to use the witnesses testimony to build lots of spokes in my wheel. Steve used to do defense work and he knows how the defense looks at a case, which I think gives him an edge because he can anticipate where the defense witnesses will attack his clients’ cases and he can prepare for it. Steve had me fully prepared for my own deposition by the defense attorney and for my examination by the defense doctor. Steve finally overwhelmed the DOT and its contractor with evidence that their negligence caused my accident, and we were ultimately able to reach a settlement of very high six figures. Steve is a down to earth kind of guy who is very easy to talk to. He kept in regular contact with me so I always knew what was going on with my case. I’m extremely happy with the work Steve did for me on my case and I give him my highest recommendation to anyone who has been seriously hurt or even killed by someone else’s negligence. J.
Steve was absolutely amazing. I would recommend Steve to anyone who was looking for a personal injury lawyer. He was so incredibly trustworthy and diligent. Once I found him I did not have to worry about a thing. I knew I could trust his advice and to get everything taken care of.
My son was bitten on the face by a pit bull dog. My husband was serving in the Military in Iraq at the time, and we needed help with our claim. The first attorney I hired was nice, but was not aggressive in representing my son’s interests. Later, Steve Knapp took charge of my son’s case and he was able to double the “final” offer obtained by our previous attorney to settle my son’s claims. Steve Knapp did a great job on my son’s case and I strongly recommend him as an attorney. Steve is very experienced and knowledgeable about the law and was a champion for my son’s claims. But Steve is also a very nice guy, who was easy to talk to and he contacted me regularly to keep me updated with the status of my son’s case. I am happy to give Steve my highest recommendation.
Steve Knapp did a great job representing me after I was involved in a car accident on I-5. I called him soon after my accident and I am very happy that I did. He explained the process of how I could make a recovery for all of my damages in clear and easy to understand language. Steve checked in with me regularly to see how my medical treatment was going and I felt like he was with me throughout the entire case. After about 1 ½ years I finished my medical treatment and was ready to settle my claims. Steve took care of all the negotiations with the insurance company adjuster and after several letters and telephone calls, he was able to reach a settlement for all of my claims. I was very happy with the settlement offer he was able to obtain from the insurance company. I highly recommend Steve Knapp as your attorney if you are injured. I also strongly suggest that you call him as soon as possible after your accident to relieve your stress and peace of mind.
