The Cline Law Firm exists for the sole purpose of listening to and advocating for individuals and families who have sustained great harm and losses as a result of the negligent, intentional, or other wrongful conducts of others.

Our Practice Areas

Our team’s experience in personal injury law spans generations. Our own attorney, Lance Cline, is a second-generation personal injury lawyer that has been immersed in the field since he was young and learned the basics from his father, also a personal injury attorney. Our law firm is able to navigate you through your case with ease and efficiency.

Personal Injury

Our personal injury services cover a wide variety of accidents, including auto accidents. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury in the United States and can cause devastating injuries, some of which can include broken bones, burns, spinal cord and neck injuries, head and brain trauma, amputations, and more.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals are constantly trusted by patients to put a patient's interest first and to keep patients safe. Sometimes this does not happen. Medical malpractice can alter the lives of victims and even cause death. We have helped many clients who have been misdiagnosed and incorrectly treated, including children injured as a result of negligence at birth.

Victims may feel intimidated by the concept of filing a claim against a medical professional or hospital, but those at fault should be held liable for the injuries and damages caused by their negligence. We are not afraid to be a voice for you during this challenging time.
