Our attorneys draw on more than 90 combined years of experience assisting accident victims by pressing for the compensation they deserve for medical expenses, lost wages and other losses.

Proven litigators handle vehicle accident claims
If you’re injured in a car, truck or motorcycle accident in Missouri, you may be unable to work and pay your bills while medical expenses mount. You can seek compensation by filing a claim with your own insurer, the at-fault driver’s insurer, or through a personal injury lawsuit. If you file suit, the damages you can recover are reduced by your percentage of fault for the accident. When you file a claim with an insurance company, the insurer will try to pay the minimum amount possible. We draw on extensive experience to prepare strong claims for clients and challenge insurers who attempt to deny them. We also consult with medical and collision reconstruction experts to establish liability for your accident and bolster your claim for the full, fair compensation you deserve.
Dedicated counselors seek compensation for your slip and fall injuries
Property owners have a duty of care to all those who have a legal right to be on their premises. So, if you slip and fall on an icy sidewalk, a slippery floor in a grocery store, or cracked pavement in a parking lot, you may have a right to sue the property owner in a premises liability suit. To succeed, you need to prove that the owner knew about the hazard or should reasonably have known about it, failed to address it or warn visitors about it, you were injured as a result, and the hazard was the cause of your injury. As in other Missouri personal injury claims, your damages will be reduced by any percentage of fault you bear. We will work to hold negligent property owners accountable when you are injured on their premises.
Skilled counselors handle wrongful death actions for Missouri families
When a family member’s death was caused by the negligence or intentional misconduct of a person or entity, it can be difficult to even think of taking legal action. But for those seeking a measure of justice and rightful compensation for an array of losses, a wrongful death claim can provide much-needed relief. Missouri law limits those who can bring such claims: the decedent’s surviving spouse, children, or grandchildren have first priority; if there are none, then a surviving sibling is next in line. If no family members exist, the estate’s personal representative can file suit. We help Missouri families to recover damages for their own losses, such as the loss of benefits or future income the decedent would have provided, as well as compensation for funeral and medical expenses on the deceased’s behalf.
