Meticulous. No word better describes the preparation Scott Sanders uses when he handles your personal injury case. Growing up in a small town in rural Kansas, Scott learned at an early age that honesty, hard work and attention to detail are keys to being successful. As the son of a Kansas District Court Judge, Scott quickly became fascinated with the judicial system and its impact on injured Kansans. Scott knows that your case is extremely important to you. Rest assured that when you hire Scott as your personal injury lawyer, you will work directly with Scott on your case, not his legal secretary. As a trial attorney, Scott works hard to represent you in your fight to hold persons and corporations responsible for their negligent and careless conduct.
Because of his hard work and passion for the law, Scott has obtained maximum recoveries for his clients. Scott prepares each case as if it will go before a trial of your peers. Once the opposition understands that he is willing to take a case to trial, most cases settle out of court. However, Scott and his partner, Donald Snook, will not settle your case for less than fair compensation for your injuries. In the last two years, their firm obtained verdicts and settlements in excess of $13,000,000.00. In January 2011, Scott and Don collected a $302,000.00 settlement for a client who was the victim of a Rottweiler attack.* Scott will minimize your financial risk and take your case on a “no recovery, no fee” basis in order to allow you easy access to the legal system.
