Personal Injury and Death

“Personal injury” cases are disputes where someone has been physically injured.  In some cases, a person suffers temporary injuries and incurs thousands of dollars in medical bills.  In others, someone is permanently injured or dies. If you or a loved one has been injured or has died, contact us today.

Car Accidents

Every driver in the State of Missouri is required by law to have at least $25,000 in insurance coverage in case they injure someone in an accident.  This is because even a minor accident with minimal damage to your car can have life-altering consequences.  Even the doctors hired by insurance companies to evaluate claims admit a bulging disc can be caused by minor trauma.  You may require thousands of dollars in chiropractic care, tens of thousands of dollars in diagnostic testing and surgery, along with missed work and lost the enjoyment of your life.

Premises Liability

“Premises liability” is a broad phrase used for lawsuits that hold the owner of property responsible for injuries visitors suffer that could have been prevented.  This could be something as basic as shoveling snow and removing ice, to something more sinister like failing to hire security guards after repeated violent robberies.  The owner of the property is in the best position to know what is and is not safe.  When they are too cheap, lazy, or incompetent to correct dangerous issues and leave the general public to fend for themselves, people can be seriously injured.

Trucking Accidents

Truckers perform a vital service.  Unfortunately, they are often overworked, underqualified, or worse.  They are entrusted with more than a vehicle, in the hands of the wrong driver, they have a deadly weapon.

Wrongful Death

We know the death of a loved one is one of the most difficult times in any person’s life.  When the death could have been prevented and was the result of someone else’s carelessness or recklessness, letting go becomes even harder.

Dangerous and Defective Products — “Product Liability”

Product liability cases involve claims against manufacturers, distributors, and/or sellers of products that have caused personal injury and/or death. Product liability cases are usually based on defects in the manufacture or design of a product or in the warnings used with it. We have over a decade of experience handling product liability lawsuits involving a myriad of different types of products including, among others, chemicals, industrial equipment, exercise machines, space heaters, and medical devices. We have worked with respected engineers and industry specialists whose assistance is vital to the prosecution of these claims.

Nursing Home and Elder Care Abuse

When you place the care of an elderly person into the hands of others, you should be able to rely on those people to ensure your loved is treated with dignity, humanity, and with the attention necessary to keep them alive, healthy, and as happy as possible. Most of the time, you are paying large fees for these services and guarantees.  When a loved one is injured by the negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of nursing homes, we can help.  Call us today for a free consultation.

If you or a loved one has been injured, or if a loved one has died, because of someone else’s conduct, you could have a personal injury case and may be entitled to compensation for things like medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.  Usually, the people or corporations responsible for the injury are covered by an insurance policy which would pay their attorney’s bills and, ultimately, any judgment the jury might award.  We spent years as the lawyers hired to defend these cases, and we understand how to win them.  Below is a brief overview of the types of personal injury cases we handle.
