I just wanted to take the time to say thank you for all the hard work and dedication you put into my case. When it comes to work comp cases I can clearly see you are a very good employee advocate. I believe you do this work, not just for the money, but for the satisfaction you receive when you have helped someone “win’ a case”. So again I say thank you.

I will definitely keep you in mind if I ever need legal representation in the future. I will also ‘highly’ recommend you to my acquaintances and friends if they are ever in need of legal assistance. Thanks again for a triumphant outcome of my case. — Dave, Blue Springs, MO

We would hire Paul again.

Mr. Evans did a great job for my husband and myself. He worked to get us the best possible outcome on our car accident. We also hired him two years later for an injury our sustained at a swimming pool. He’s very compassionate and understanding.

Personal injury covers any wrong or damage done to another in his person, property, rights, or reputation. Injuries can happen at work, in a traffic accident, because of a faulty product or a faulty repair, because of a mistake during medical treatment, or because you slipped and fell on pavement or on a wet floor. The injury can be physical or psychological, but, to have a case, it must occur due to the negligence or unreasonably unsafe actions of your employer, a manufacturer, your doctor, your landlord, or some other person or organization who owes you a duty of ordinary care. Contact Blue Springs Law Office your personal injury lawyer in Historic Downtown Blue Springs, MO.

A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who provides legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Thus, personal injury lawyers tend to be especially knowledgeable and have more experience with regard to the area of law known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights.
Even though personal injury lawyers are trained and licensed to practice virtually any field of law, they generally handle cases that fall under tort law including, but not limited to: work injuries, automobile and other accidents, defective products, medical mistakes, slip and fall accidents, and more.
The expression “trial lawyers” can refer to personal injury lawyers, even though most cases handled by personal injury lawyers settle rather than going to trial. Cases involving serious injury may require filing a lawsuit and proceeding toward litigation in order to reach a settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, we will be very well-prepared to go to trial to present your case to a jury of your peers in order to recover a just reward of damages for you.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE AN INJURY CASE
1. TALK TO NO ONE—Do not talk to anyone about your accident except your own lawyers or investigators. You should always require identification so that you are sure who you are talking to. Don’t even talk to your own insurance company or to any lawyers hired by your own insurance company without notifying your attorney.
2. RECORD OF COMPLAINTS—Please keep a daily or weekly record of your complaints and progress. This can be very helpful because, a year later, you will be able to recall your pain and difficulties more vividly.
3. YOUR DOCTOR—You should return to each of your doctors as often as necessary and should always tell them about all your com¬plaints. You should not minimize your ailments to your doctors as it is one of the best ways for them to know how to treat you. If you see any additional doctors, be sure we are advised immediately of their names and addresses.
4. REGULAR CONTACT WITH YOUR ATTORNEY’S OFFICE—Someone from your attorney’s office may call you regularly to find out how you’re doing. You will recognize her voice. Please cooperate with her fully.
5. WAGES AND EARNINGS LOST—Please keep an accurate record of all days lost from work because of your injuries.
6. MEDICAL BILLS—Obtain and duplicate copies of all medical, hos¬pital, and drug bills. You should periodically send these bills to your attorney for their file. Also keep a record of any other expenses you may have in connection with your accident, such as the hiring of extra help. All your bills should be paid by check, and you should obtain and keep receipts. You should make and keep a list of all your medical bills and the costs incurred in going to the doctor.
7. CAR REPAIR—Do not have your automobile repaired until you are sure that we have obtained pictures of it. After pictures are taken by this office, have your collision insurance carrier repair your car. Call us if you don’t have pictures, so we may have them made. If you need help against your own insurance company, call us and we will be glad to help.
8. TRAFFIC OFFENSES—Never plead guilty to any traffic offense and if you are arrested in connection with this accident, call one of the lawyers in the office immediately and we will see that someone rep¬resents or advises you. In the event of a coroner’s inquest or other type of hearing, be sure to notify this office so that we will be able to represent you in connection with this inquest.
9. WITNESSES—Furnish to us immediately the correct names, ad¬dresses, and telephone numbers of any and all witnesses you may learn of.
10. SAVE YOUR CAST—If your injury requires a cast, brace, traction, or other appliance, save it for evidence at trial. You should notify us that you are keeping these things and when the case is set for hearing, you should bring these items with you.
11. PHOTOGRAPHS—Send us the negatives and prints of any photo¬graphs pertaining to your case which you or any of your friends have taken. If you are required to be in the hospital and are receiving any type of treatment, like traction or physical therapy, please notify your attorney’s office so that we can have your attorney’s investigator photograph you.
12. HOSPITAL AND DOCTOR BILLS—Have your own insurance carrier pay as many hospital and doctor bills under the payment provisions of your policy as possible. You should also have your hospitalization insurance, such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield, pay as much of your bills as possible. Doctors and hospitals are more cooperative when their bills are paid. You should not expect them to wait until your case is tried or settled to receive payment. You should, there¬fore, pay any balance as soon as possible.
13. QUESTIONS—Your attorney will probably not contact you until they have something definite to report. They will be contacting you for depositions, answers to interrogatories, and when your case goes to trial, which may be in excess of one year from the time the suit is filed. If you have any specific questions with regard to these instructions or any other matters with regard to your case, please call or write your attorney.
14. YOUR ADDRESS—Be sure to keep your attorney’s office advised of any change in your address or telephone number. Please do not come in expecting to see one of the attorneys without an appointment. They will be happy to see you, but simply can’t see all of your their clients at the same time. So, call for an appointment—that way you will not be kept waiting.

Paul E. Evans Attorney at Law - Blue Springs Law Office
I was referred to Mr. Paul E, Evans by a friend who hired Mr. Evans for several legal issues. Paul has been my attorney now for almost 15 years. He has represented me in several different areas of Law. From traffic citations, real estate issues and family law, Mr. Evans has always been a phone call away. It makes me feel good to know that I have legal counsel, if needed, close at hand. I highly recommend that if you have any legal issues, problems, or just questions that you give Paul a call. He’s straight up, a good man, honest and will tell you the truth.

Paul E. Evans Attorney at Law - Blue Springs Law Office
As a local realtor I've driven by Blue Springs Law Office many times. I researched Mr. Evans and found he specialized in Personal Injury, Family Law, just to name a few. Since his office was so close I dropped in to see if he had any experience in starting a new business. I needed forms to fill out, questions answered, etc................ Mr. Evans was very helpful and worked with me to get all the necessary forms, licenses, etc.. for my business. I also had another pressing legal matter I needed help with. Paul did not specialize in that area of law and referred me to another attorney. His staff are all very accommodating and make you feel comfortable throughout the legal process. I highly recommend Paul E Evans at Blue Springs Law Office.

Call Paul Evans
With my number of driving tickets I dread having to go to court and pay for them. I would say I am lucky to have Paul Evans as my lawyer though; having Paul to be there with me makes the process a lot easier. He is very professional and also light and friendly in the appropriate situations. I feel comfortable calling him with questions and/or concerns, which is very important to me. I couldn't see myself working with anyone else. I highly recommend Paul's Evans' service.

Fights for his clients
I've known Paul for close to 30 years and know him as a friend, confident and definitely my attorney of choice. Having made the wrong choices with attorneys many times before and given the "we'll take care of it...." attitude I've learned there's a big, big difference when it comes to your choice of lawyer. Most just want to "settle" the case, get the money and move to the next one. That's definitely not Paul Evens. Paul did not grow up as an attorney or come from a family of attorneys or come from wealth. He's an everyday man that learned life much before becoming an attorney as a choice of career and fighting for the underdog. And as such he understands the everyday person and all the trials and tribulations we go through on a daily basis. And this is what you want fighting for your rights, someone that's been there! I've seen him in action so many times, not only on some issues of my own but I spent time at his firm consulting on business practices for about 6 months and was able to watch him daily in action handling other clients and how the same caring and fighting for his clients went into each case, no matter the size of the case or the subject matter. He understands the law and is in your corner. I've personally seen this calm and caring man become a "fighting tiger" in the courtroom for his client and frankly I was shocked the first time I witnessed how much of a fighter my friend was but yet very proud to call such this man my friend. I recommend Paul for all your legal needs, from cases small to the largest, he's the man that can get the job done the way you want. And I would lastly add that his inner peer group include, state representatives, county prosecutors, judges and big name attorneys, which means there's no case too large that he can't find a way to fight for you and put together a huge team (if needed) to win your case.

Paul E Evans Attorney was so helpful and patient with us. Highly Recommend
My husband and I are so thankful we found Paul E. Evans to help us with our Will. We have three children and had no idea what it entailed writing/having a Will done. It is so important. He answered all our questions regarding the Will and guided us through the whole process. We feel so relieved knowing that Paul helped us with this important document. What a weight off our shoulders. We didn't know if we needed one, where to store one, basically we didn't even know where to start. Paul E. Evans is the best. We highly recommend Paul to anyone seeking an attorney.

Anything important to you, from custody, personal injury, estate or a traffic ticket, he makes important to him. Hands down, the best attorney in Eastern Jackson County.

Fantastic Lawyer - Paul Evans
I'm happy with Paul Evans as my lawyer. There's no substitute for having a lawyer on your side who has 18 years of experience. I've personally used Paul in Lee's Summit a couple of times and the one thing I've noticed about Paul is that he won't promise the world, he's very realistic about what to expect, and you will get the best he has. The real court system isn't like what you see on TV, the rules of the court process aren't designed for entertainment. That's why I need Paul who knows his way around the system.
