Stephens & Stephens, a personal injury boutique law firm, has handled thousands of lawsuits and claims. We are dedicated advocates for our clients and work hard to achieve the best possible settlement or verdict. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident or a trucking accident, and you need a lawyer, look to Stephens & Stephens. We can help you:

Our automobile accident attorneys have experience handling claims against insurance companies. We also handle UM / UIM, underinsured or uninsured, motorist claims. If you have the available insurance coverage through your own auto insurance policy and your damages are more than another motorist’s insurance policy (or the other driver has no insurance), you may be able to recover from your UM-UIM policy. Because the law has drastically changed in this area in the past few years, it is important to hire an attorney who knows how to handle this type of lawsuit. R. Gary Stephens and Skyler Stephens have tried auto accident lawsuits recently under the new laws and have the experience to handle your UM-UIM and your auto accident case.
No amount of money can truly compensate for the loss of a person’s life, or for loss of enjoyment of a person’s life, but through monetary compensation, we can give our clients the tools to better cope and to carry on with as normal a life as possible, in spite of the emotional and physical wounds that may never go away.
As the nation’s highways and roads become more congested, car accidents have become a daily tragedy. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that it is now the number one cause of death in the United States for people between the ages of two and 33. A car accident can result in hardships suffered at the hand of another’s negligent or even reckless behavior.

Insurance companies spend millions every year in advertising, telling you that you are in Good Hands, or that they protect you from Mayhem, or that they are Like a Good Neighbor. But the reality is that insurance companies are in the business of collecting insurance premiums, not paying claims. Their strategy is to delay, deny, and defend, and they view every claimant as a frivolous claim. By hiring Stephens & Stephens, you can help protect your legal rights.
