Getting You the Compensation You Deserve

Suffering a personal injury in an accident, or caring for a loved one who has been injured is always a personal matter. There is often a ripple effect throughout entire families when the negligence of another leads to serious injury or wrongful death. At this pivotal time, it is critical to work with an advocate you can trust. The insurance companies are often more interested in their own profits — not the best interests and security of you and your family.

Case Overview
Debra Ford was involved in a collision with an employee from International Paper (“IP”). As a result of the accident, the vehicle that Debra was driving was overturned and then dragged along the roadway on the driver’s side of the vehicle. Debra sustained numerous injuries to her arm which caused the need to have her left arm amputated at the shoulder. The cause of the accident was a result of the IP employee being distracted by talking on a cellphone.

What happened to bring me to Miss Kathy was in 2005 I was rear-ended on the interstate, on I16 in Lawrence County, by a girl text messaging and lost my left arm. I felt like Miss Kathy really cared, her and her staff. She doesn’t act like a lawyer when you visit with her. I mean she treats you like family. She kept me informed and updated on everything that went on. Miss Kathy absolutely fought for me and I would recommend her to anybody.

Result: Confidential

My reason for coming to see Miss Kathy was I was misdiagnosed of a problem that was wrong with me and it caused my baby to die. During the mediation she didn’t just settle for less. She fought for what she felt was fair. She’s a fighter and she’s a great attorney. She really cares and she’s going to make sure that you get treated fairly. She’s a – she’s a great fighter. I would highly recommend Miss Kathy McArthur to friends and family or anyone who was injured and needed help.
