Protecting Your Rights & Putting Your Life Back On Track

Legal issues can turn your life upside down. Logansport attorney Matthew D. Barrett is committed to guiding individuals through difficult legal situations in personal injury and criminal defense matters.

If you are hurt in an auto accident that is caused by someone else, injured by a defective product or hurt because of negligence on the part of a property manager, we can  help.

If you have been arrested for drunk driving, drug charges or other criminal charges, we are prepared to defend your rights, your interests and your future.

Maximizing Recovery After An Accident

If you are injured in an accident that is caused by someone else, it's understandable that you expect the at-fault party's insurance company to cover your medical costs, lost wages if you're unable to work and other expenses related to the accident. Unfortunately, insurance companies don't always cooperate. They are in business to make money. As a result, they may attempt to settle your claim for far less than you deserve, or deny it altogether.

Attorney Matthew D. Barrett worked for insurance companies earlier in his career, so he understands the tactics they use and knows how to combat them in order to recover the maximum amount of compensation for his clients. Our firm represents clients who have been injured in a wide range of accidents, including:

  • Car and semi-truck accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Accidents at schools and daycare providers
  • Dog bites and attacks
  • Unsafe conditions at stores, hotels, swimming pools and other public-use spaces

We work all injury cases on a contingency fee basis, which means we will only get paid if we help you obtain a recovery, either through negotiation or a court verdict.

Speaking of court, we are always prepared to take a case to trial if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation. It is important that insurance companies know this. Matthew has earned a reputation as a tough negotiator who will not settle for less than each client deserves.
