Trusted Guidance for Serious Injury Cases
Sustaining a serious injury due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another can have a dramatic impact on your life. From the pain, suffering, and discomfort brought on by physical damage to emotional trauma, inability to work, mounting medical and out-of-pocket bills, and, in some cases, uncertainty about your future earning capacity, you and your family may be overwhelmed. Having to deal with the details of a personal injury claim, which often involves insurance companies who can be uncooperative or mainly focused on reducing their own liability, can add to the stress.

Our goal is to fight for the maximum compensation to which you are entitled so that you can recover and move forward with the security you need.

We have the legal skills, the knowledge, and the resources to support you during such a difficult time and to fight for you every step of the way, whether at the settlement table or in court.

Personal Injury Cases in Missouri
Personal injury cases can stem from a wide range of accidents and incidents. Among the most common are traffic accidents involving negligent drivers.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that 2.3 million individuals are injured in motor vehicle crashes annually.
Our firm handles a variety of accident/injury cases, including the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents (known as premises liability cases)
- Other premises liability accidents/injuries
- Injuries caused by defective or dangerous consumer products
- Dog bites/attacks
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
- Wrongful death
Filing a personal injury claim often involves an extensive investigation into the cause of the accident and assigning liability to the responsible party or parties. Our firm can conduct our own investigation into your accident/injuries and fully represent your legal rights and best interests at every phase of the claims process. Insurance companies are generally more concerned with protecting their profits than ensuring that you have the full financial resources you need to recover. This leads to offering you a quick settlement that is often much less than your case is worth. That is why we recommend that you work with an experienced attorney whose sole aim is to protect you.
