Firm Overview

TEN Reasons To Put VanDerGinst Law In Your Corner If You Have Been Injured.

1. THERE IS NEVER AN ATTORNEY FEE ON YOUR INJURY CASE UNLESS WE WIN. None. Nada. Zip. We win, or you don't pay us any fee. It's that simple.

2. WE DON'T CHARGE ANYTHING FOR COSTS. We "front" the money to pursue your case. We pay to get copies of your records, filing fees, expert costs, etc. Some firms will tell you there is no attorney fee unless you win but they will nevertheless ask for a retainer of hundreds or even thousands of dollars for "costs" like these. Not so at VanDerGinst Law. You are NEVER out of pocket a dime.

3. NATIONAL RESOURCES, LOCAL CONNECTIONS. We have the technological advances, resources and reputation of a national law firm but the advantage of knowing all the local judges, lawyers, doctors and insurance representatives. That gives us a big advantage in working your injury case.

4. EXPERIENCE. We have represented nearly 20,000 injury victims throughout Iowa and Illinois and have recovered tens of millions of dollars on their behalf. We have earned the trust of dozens of doctors and other treatment providers, who refer their injury patients to us to help with their legal needs. We can help you too!

5. EXPERTISE. Our attorneys and staff have earned the respect and accolades of peers and clients alike, both of whom have named us as among the best injury attorneys in the country. Among our numerous honors, we have earned a perfect 10/10 score from Avvo Attorney Rating Service and received Avvo's Client Choice Award.

6. CONVENIENCE. When you have been injured the last thing you need is to drag yourself to an attorney's office. With VanDerGinst Law, you usually don't need to! We can open your file over the phone, online, or we can come to you!

7. LASER FOCUS ON INJURY CASES. The practice of law is a lot like the practice of medicine in that there are practitioners who have general practices and others who specialize. At VanDerGinst Law we focus almost exclusively on injury law. We aren't saying that general practice attorneys or attorneys who primarily focus on other legal issues, can't handle an occasional injury claim. But, if you needed brain surgery you would see a brain surgeon, not the family doctor or a gynecologist. By the same token we feel completely confident we can expertly handle ANY injury case that comes our way.

8. LOYALTY. At VanDerGinst Law we ONLY represent injured people. We NEVER represent insurance companies, big business interests or manufacturers of dangerous products. Some lawyers and law firms will represent the interests of insurance companies and will also represent injured people. We feel you can't serve two masters. How can an attorney be beholding to insurance companies to supplement their income. Yet, try to get as much money from those same companies as possible for their injured client? They are doing a disservice to one or both of those clients. We EXCLUSIVELY represent injured people. No conflicts. No compromises.

9. COMMUNITY. We help people in the courtroom. But, we also help people out of the courtroom. We participate in countless charitable efforts and community events. We feel compelled to give back to the communities we serve. One of the ways we do so is through our "Hard Headed Kids" Campaign, through which we have given away over 10,000 bike safety helmets to children in Iowa and Illinois.

10. RESPECT. RESPONSE. RESULTS. We treat each client with the utmost RESPECT and compassion. We know how difficult injuries can be on a person's life. We RESPOND to those need as quickly and comprehensively as possible, doing whatever it takes to make your life easier. We deal directly with your treatment providers and the insurance carriers. We handle all the running around and phone calling so you can focus on getting better. We coordinate all insurance benefits in order to maximize the amount of money you will end up with when your case is over. We GUARANTEE to work diligently to get you the RESULTS you deserve and to which you are entitled.

In addition, we will help you with your property damage on car accident cases for NO EXTRA FEE!

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

At VanDerGinst Law we don't like to see injury victims be victimized by ruthless insurance companies or big business interests so we ONLY represent PEOPLE who have been injured on the job, or due to negligence, or because of dangerous products. We don't represent insurance companies or those who have caused injuries.

We feel it is important to let people know that their rights to compensation can be preserved with our help with NO FINANCIAL RISK. We DO NOT require a retainer for costs. There NO FEE for a consultation. There is NO ATTORNEY FEE EVER UNLESS WE WIN your injury case. That may seem too good to be true. But, to borrow a phrase from our profession, "It is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth."

EXPERIENCE COUNTS

VanDerGinst Law has helped thousands of injured clients in Iowa and Illinois, and has recovered over $100 million on their behalf. We have established record recoveries in many of the venues in which we practice. Our lawyers have been recognized by peers and clients as among the best in the profession ("Who's Who In American Law"; "Top 100 Trial Lawyers" according to the American Trial Lawyer Association; "Leading Lawyers Network"; "AVVO Client's Choice Award"; "Multi Million Dollar Advocates Forum"; "America's Premier Lawyers"; Best Attorney's Network"; "Top 500 Attorneys in American" according to Law Dragon Publications; and many more).

FOCUS COUNTS

If you needed brain surgery you would go to a brain surgeon, not a family doctor. By the same token, when you have a legal problem, you should be sure that you have a lawyer that is experienced in the right field of law. Some lawyers and firms will handle just about any kind of case in order to generate a fee. They may have a "general" law practice, much the same as family doctor may have a "general" medical practice. Certainly, some of those lawyers can do a fine job in many areas of law. But often, their experience in specific areas of law may be limited. When that happens, your case may be compromised, or even jeopardized. At VanDerGinst Law we concentrate on PERSONAL INJURY LAW. We feel confident that we can help you with even the most complicated case injury case.

We focus on all areas of personal injury law, including car and other motor vehicle accident cases, wrongful death cases, worker's compensation, medical malpractice cases, nursing home abuse cases, faulty product cases, slip and fall cases, pharmaceutical malpractice cases, negligent security cases and all types of negligence cases.

We have handled cases all across the country but focus our practice primarily in Iowa and Illinois. We have the resources of a national firm and the connections of a local one.

LOYALTY COUNTS

Some lawyers will represent insurance companies in defending personal injury claims, and yet will still accept an individual's injury case in order to generate a fee. How can they be on the payroll of a large insurance company yet still be willing to bite the hand that feeds them on occasion? You can't serve two masters! We think that presents inherent conflicts of interest. At VanDerGinst Law our loyalties are undivided. We NEVER represent insurance companies, manufacturers of dangerous products, nor big business interests. We only represent people, just like you.

CONTINGENCY FEES COUNT

People often don't seek the guidance of an attorney for fear that doing so would be too expensive and complicated. At VanDerGinst Law your consultation is always FREE. In all injury cases our fees are on a contingency basis, meaning you pay NO FEE UNLESS WE WIN your case. We also "front" any money required to process your case. So, you are NEVER OUT OF POCKET a dime!

CARING AND CONVENIENCE COUNTS

When you have been injured your life can fee completely out of control. You may be unable to work, have medical and other bills mounting, you may be suffering from pain. We understand these things and do all we can to lessen your burdens.

Starting with the process of opening your file we try to make things as convenient as possible. You likely won't even need to come to one of our offices. We can open the file over the phone, online, or we can come to you.

From that point forward we take over the workload so you can concentrate on getting better. We will coordinate insurance benefits. We will try to negotiate with bill collectors and medical providers. We will secure all of the evidence necessary to get you the best compensation we possibly can.

We try to settle your case out of court if at all possible. But, if the other side is being unreasonable and you want to fight in the courtroom, we are prepared to battle it out!

Our staff members genuinely care about you. We give each client's case the attention it needs and deserves. If you have been injured, we would be honored to help.
