At Byron Carlson Petri & Kalb, LLC, our attorneys have decades of experience representing victims of car crashes as well as trucking, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents. We get to know our clients and thoroughly investigate the unique circumstances of each motor vehicle accident case we handle, in order to:

  • Establish the full harmful impact of all injuries sustained, including taking depositions from treating doctors and creating video documentation of injuries that require costly treatment and rehabilitation, result in other lost income and may be permanently life altering
  • Determine all responsible parties and work to maximize all sources of potential financial recovery for you, through in-depth insurance analysis and rigorous case building for a possible trial
