How Can We Help You?

Auto Accidents
Auto Accidents

Our St. Louis auto accident attorneys have extensive experience helping people who have suffered serious injuries in car accidents, tractor-trailer accidents, motorcycle crashes, school bus accidents, and crashes involving pedestrians or biking accidents. When you entrust us with your case, we start by conducting a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the crash and who is responsible. This may include a distracted driver, an exhausted trucker, a drunk driver, dangerous road conditions, or even defective auto equipment. Our knowledgeable attorneys will work to pursue compensation from all possible sources, including the at-fault party’s insurer and your own uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage.

During your free initial consultation with us, we will discuss the types of compensation you may be able to recover in your auto accident case. This may include payment for past and future medical bills, lost wages, damage to your vehicle, pain and suffering, and possible punitive damages meant to punish the at-fault party for particularly reckless behavior. We will also talk with you about how to manage your bills in the meantime, and we will make sure you have access to medical professionals who have experience treating auto accident victims with similar injuries. Overall, our goal is to take the burden off you during this difficult time so you and your family can focus on healing.

Product Liability
Product Liability

As consumers, we trust that when we purchase a product in a store or are given a medication by a doctor, that item has gone through rigorous testing to ensure it is safe for use and functions properly. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. All too often, our experienced St. Louis product liability attorneys have represented clients who were severely injured or burned when everyday products like smoke detectors, space heaters, and coffee makers malfunctioned and started a fire. In addition, we have stood up for the rights of workers who have been hurt by defective equipment or patients who have suffered serious side effects from dangerous medications.

When our attorneys meet with you to discuss your product liability case, we will identify all the parties that could possibly be held responsible for your injuries. This could include anyone in the chain of distribution, such as manufacturers, product designers, suppliers, and retailers. We will also discuss in detail how your injuries have affected your life, including how much you are incurring in medical bills, the time you’ve missed from work, and the impact your injuries have had on your overall quality of life.

Personal Injury
Personal Injury

Our St. Louis personal injury lawyers have spent years helping people across Missouri and Illinois who have been hurt due to the negligent or intentional actions of others. Our knowledge in this area of law is based on a wide array of cases, including representing victims of nursing home abuse, dog bites, swimming pool accidents, and auto accidents. For us, each case is unique, and we treat every client with the personal attention and superior customer service that they deserve.

When you schedule a free consultation with our personal injury attorneys, we will specifically tailor an approach to fit your case and desired outcomes. We have helped clients who are suffering from severe back and spinal cord injuries, head and traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and catastrophic burns. It is extremely important to us that you are receiving the medical treatment you need from a highly qualified specialist, and we will go the extra mile to ensure you have the proper support you need to heal while we pursue compensation in your case.

Class-action Lawsuits
Class-action Lawsuits

Our St. Louis class-action and mass tort attorneys have significant experience handling these complex cases in both state and federal courts, and we strive to maintain excellent relationships in the legal field to make partnering with other firms on these cases as seamless as possible.

With deep roots in the St. Louis area, our attorneys pride themselves on continually building a collegial practice that upholds the value of professionalism under pressure. When chosen to work on these important cases, we feel a great sense of honor to be advocating alongside other talented mass tort firms in the fight for justice.

You Can’t Afford to
Go It Alone

Research has shown that injured victims who sought the help of an attorney recovered much more than those who tried to negotiate with insurance companies on their own. Remember, the insurance companies have attorneys working fiercely to protect them, and you should, too. At The Bruning Law Firm, our St. Louis personal injury attorneys do not charge a fee upfront. In fact, we do not collect any legal fees unless and until we win your case. So contact us today to schedule a free, no-obligation case consultation.
