Our Unique Approach

Why Us?

Let's face it.

There's a lot of lawyers and attorneys out there asking for your personal injury business.

1. How are We Different?

Simple. We are absolutely committed to maximizing your recovery by keeping up-t-date with the latest courtroom technology and persuasive techniques.

We attend numerous seminars every year dedicated to courtroom psychology of jurors and the best methods to presenting courtroom evidence in a powerful and technological manner.

Simple Powerpoint presentations are part of the past -- we employ interactive courtroom presentations including 3D reproductions of the accident scene.

And we intend to be the first Indiana law firm to use "virtual reality" in an Indiana courtroom. We are working diligently towards that goal.

But, we haven't forgot that the most important person in the courtroom is --you.

We prepare you every step of the way -- before every question -- you will know what is coming. We've found a prepared person is not as nervous and can be a more effective and confident storyteller.

We combine old techniques and the newest technology to get you what you deserve.

2. We Have the Experience Necessary

We've been doing this a long time. The lawyers of McKibben Shaw Law -- the Indiana Slip and Fall Attorneys -- are not "spring chickens" and it shows -- on our faces and in our efforts.

And with age and experience comes a little bit of "know-how."

We love battling the big businesses, insurance companies and their corporate lawyers. We've been doing it for decades.

Like Muhammad Ali the boxer famously said, "It's Not Bragging if You Can Back it Up."

Remember, we don't guarantee a victory -- every case is different. But, we have a method that has worked for us through the years and we follow it.

So, here's things we do a little bit differently than other lawyers:

3. We Visit the Site Where You Fell

As a young lawyer, I learned a harsh lesson about not visiting the site of an accident.

During one of my jury trials, I asked a question concerning the road where the collision had occurred.

I asked about an intersection where a road lane markings had been. The witness corrected me and insisted that the markings were different at the time of the wreck. He was right and I was wrong because I hadn't visited the site.

We still won that case, but it taught me a lesson -- always visit the site where the injury occurred.

You'd be surprised how many personal injury lawyers still rely upon photographs or other depictions without visiting the site where the injury occurred.

There's something inherently invaluable in seeing the area -- the questions you ask in court just make more sense -- in a way, it's metaphysical.

One wrongful death jury trial, the defendant truck driver insisted he had nowhere to get off the road during a snowstorm -- so he plowed ahead and killed my client. But, unknown to him, we had visited the entire trek he took that day -- many miles of travel. During trial, I was able to recall an abandoned gas station with a large parking lot about a few miles before the wreck. During cross-examination he had to admit the abandoned gas station existed and he was capable of stopping. It was a big moment in our case.

4. We do Real Investigations -- We do not Just Send out "Forms"

You'd be surprised how many lawyers just send out "form" questions to investigate what happened in the investigation of your case. The answers received back are often meaningless.

It's probably done to save time.

We don't do that. We listen to you about what really happened and when we send out written questions to the other side (often called "interrogatories"), we do it to find out real details of what really happened.

The same goes for oral examinations before trial called "depositions." We ask real questions -- not off some pre-printed form. We prepare for a deposition like the mini-trial it truly is.

5. We Research the Current Laws

This one might be academic or obvious -- we research the current law in your case.

You wouldn't hire an attorney who doesn't "know" the laws, right? You'd be shocked to know that not every attorney keeps up-to-date.

Well, in all fairness, it's a tricky business. Laws come in many formats -- statute books, regulations and other cases -- and it can be a difficult, time-consuming task to keep abreast of all the ever-changing laws.

We try our best.

6. We use the Latest Techniques on all Slip and Fall Cases

I don't just mean we try hard. But we do try hard. And although results cannot be guaranteed, our effort can be.

Even though we have decades of experience and extensive contacts with expert witnesses throughout the nation on the cutting edge of standards of care or reconstruction -- we still keep up with new and evolving techniques to win slip and fall and any personal injury case.

In fact, in just the prior 3 years, we've attended dozens of hours of seminars from some of the nation's leading lawyers and learned new discovery techniques that have helped us win cases and increase the value of those cases.

This includes a relatively new and evolving area of law known as the Trial Rule 30(b)6 deposition technique -- a method of investigating slip and falls by asking the corporation or business entity to come into a recorded interview and divulge all facts and opinions it currently has or should have. It's a fascinating technique that has made me a better lawyer and helps you win your case.

7. We Love Our Job and We Love to Win

We love what we do. We consider this a noble profession that helps others in need. It's what we live for.

Whenever you are hurt by a business, we make it our business to help. Call us today!
