Personal Injury Lawyer Cameron V. Michaud

Cameron V. Michaud

Upon graduation from law school, Ms. Michaud joined Morris Laing to work with her father, Gerald L. Michaud. Gerald was a pioneer in the field of medical malpractice and was successful in litigating many noteworthy product liability and wrongful death cases that resulted in either withdrawal of products from the market or changes to products to make them safer. While working with her father, Cameron benefited from his 55 years of legal experience and expanded her areas of practice to include not only medical malpractice, product liability and wrongful death cases, but also semi-truck and major motor vehicle collisions.

Today, Cameron concentrates the majority of her practice on personal injury cases and has developed strategies to try and mitigate the impact of the “tort reform” attitudes held by many jurors. Cameron has formed amicable relationships with adjustors of well-known insurance companies and works hard to resolve matters quickly.

She has litigated cases all across Kansas, including Dodge City, Garden City and Sublette in Western Kansas, Saline and McPherson County in Northern Kansas, Pratt, Reno, Sedgwick and Butler County in Central Kansas and Cowley County in Southern Kansas. She has also worked on cases in Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas and Maryland.

Cameron knows how important it is to give back to both the legal profession and her community. She volunteers her time to organizations including the Wichita Bar Association, the Wichita Women Attorneys Association and the Kansas Association for Justice. Cameron supports her community through her membership in the Jr. League of Wichita, and by supporting the Communities in Schools and Success in the Middle programs.
