St. Louis Auto Accident Lawyers: Car, Truck, Motorcycle, Bicycle and Pedestrian Injuries
An almost unbelievable number of car accidents – six million – happen every year in the United States. Some three million people die in them. Most of the time, alcohol and reckless driving are involved.
Most car accidents result from:
- Misconduct. Generally, the driver is aware of what he or she is doing, such as driving too fast, but ignores it. Alcohol is usually involved.
- Negligence. This number one cause of car accidents happens because the driver doesn’t pay attention to road conditions and doesn’t act as a reasonable driver is expected to act.
- Product liability. In this case, the product is at fault, such as a defective tire, instead of the driver.
It is always pertinent to determine who is legally responsible in an auto accident. You should not only examine crash reports, but look beyond and determine if other factors were involved too, such as: unsafe roads or defective traffic safety devices.
The first advice from our personal injury lawyers in St. Louis is to not speak to the insurance company first. Have a car accident attorney represent you and speak to them before anyone else.
Missouri Workers’ Compensation: Work Injury Lawyer
Even when our workplaces do everything to make sure there aren’t accidents, injuries can happen to employees. If you are hurt while on the job, you will most likely be covered under the Workers’ Compensation law. Under “Workers’ Comp,” the injured are entitled to paid medical bills, wages lost due to the injury, and disability payment for your post medical care needs.
If you or a loved one has suffered a workplace injury, financial recovery for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages may be available to you. Contact our work injury attorneys in St. Louis and learn more about work related injuries.
Medical Malpractice Injuries in St. Louis, MO
A doctor or other health professional may be charged with medical malpractice if he or she is found to be negligent in treating a patient and injury or death is the result. This kind of malpractice may be the result of improper treatment, incorrect diagnosis, or failure to warn the patient of “reasonable” risks with the proposed treatment.
For a successful medical malpractice case, you must be able to prove these four points:
- The doctor you are suing and the doctor who treated you are the same person.
- The doctor did not act competently; in other words, the doctor was negligent.
- The doctor’s negligence actually caused the injury or wrongful death.
- Because of the injury, financial and emotional damage followed. You cannot sue for medical malpractice if no injury actually resulted.

Premises Liability Lawyers: Slip and Fall Injuries
Reasonable warning is generally at fault in these cases. If you walk into a store and fall on loose tiles, you may have a premises liability case. These injuries may take time off work and result in lost wages, expensive medical bills and even lengthy rehabilitation.
