Missourians face an ever-increasing variety of personal injury dangers that run the gamut from medical malpractice, unsafe products and premises, car and truck accidents (9 out 10 motorists will eventually be involved in an accident in their lifetimes), burns, assaults and dog bites. The list goes on and on. And so do the staggering statistics: an average of 11,000 personal injury accidents occur every hour in the United States.
A personal injury can be to the body or mind, inflicted intentionally (in the case of an assault) or due to a third party’s negligence (unsafe work conditions, for example). If you sustain a serious personal injury, there are definite things you should and should not do. For one, you can and should seek justice and compensation for serious injuries. Any experienced personal injury attorney will advise you that in Missouri you have a limited time to file a personal injury lawsuit. Going it alone means dealing with the other person’s or company’s attorney, whose mandate is to pay you nothing or next to nothing for your losses.
A knowledgeable and aggressive personal injury attorney can be a powerful advocate for your rights. He or she can ensure that you will be justly compensated for your medical bills, future medical expenses, vocational rehabilitation, and payment for emotional suffering. Instead of facing a legal gauntlet alone, you will have a skilled negotiator on your side – a professional who can deal with the paperwork, courtroom politics, trial procedures and countless details of your personal injury case. Your personal injury attorney will also have access to expert witnesses, doctors, and other resources that can help ensure your victory in court or at the settlement table.
