Attorney David J. King


Why Hire The King Law Firm?

If you try to go it alone, the insurance company will try to take advantage of your inexperience. We frequently see people hurt their cases by trying to handle them themselves. When we’re involved, the resolutions are very different. We’ve worked with and beaten every insurance company in this area. We have a solid record of success. Our legal expertise usually results in positive outcomes for our clients and their families. Financially, it will help the client and their family. Our firm will take care of all of the paperwork you need to properly process your claim and maximize your recovery.

By using our contacts and connections in the legal and medical community, we help our clients protect themselves against the defense tactics of the insurance companies. We work with experts throughout South Dakota and Iowa every day:

• We meet with the doctors to secure their opinions, having them identify the injuries our clients have suffered and the cause of those injuries.
• We hire vocational experts.
• We hire physical therapists for functional capacities assessments.
• We work with specialized doctors for impairment ratings.
• We pursue rehabilitation claims.

We make sure that all the proof is sufficient to satisfy the proper legal standard to prove the claim, and we ensure the insurance company is aware of it.

When I meet with clients, I look them in the eye. They are not going to wonder where their case is at or what is going on. We set follow-up appointments. We want clients to bring in any questions or concerns they have. Here, you’re like family, and we treat you that way. For instance, maybe they have an unpaid medical bill that has been ignored, and they are getting pressured to pay those outstanding medical bills. I want them to bring it to the office because we can often help recover those bills. We try to have a very good rapport with our clients. We regularly meet with them and their family members to hear their whole stories and to learn how the accident has affected the entire family.

Thousands of people have trusted us to represent them on their personal injury cases for over 30 years. We have recovered untold millions of dollars in auto accident recoveries. We have a well-known history of respect in the legal community and for caring for our clients. Through online reviews and social media, many clients have publicly declared what we’ve done for them. We know how an injury claim can impact the injured person and their whole family, and we don’t take that responsibility lightly. We take getting to know the client and their story very seriously. By getting to know what really happened, and how it affects them in all aspects of their lives, we can effectively present their case to the insurance company, the jury, or the court.

I have a framed letter that I received decades ago from a client. It talks about everything I did for him and his family. Several other lawyers had rejected him before seeing me on his case. We won that claim. The letter is tearful, talking about how I was able to put clothes on his children’s backs and how I was able to help their family financially. They felt respected and vindicated, and I cherish that client. It is a serious responsibility to represent a client in an automobile accident case. We take that we are responsible very seriously.

This letter isn’t the only one. I have several framed letters at my office just like it. They are glowing reviews thanking us for everything we did for them and caring about them. You can look at our public testimonials on our website or our five-star Google reviews and Facebook reviews to see we are very well-respected.

Every day we look at this as a responsibility to earn our clients’ trust and respect. We look at it as an honor to represent them and be entrusted with their family’s situation.
