If you have been seriously injured in a St. Louis car accident, you may have already been contacted by an insurance company.  They may try to talk you into taking a settlement that won’t come close to covering your needs. You may also be wondering whether you can negotiate this on your own, without getting a lawyer involved.

Car Accident Lawyers in St. Louis

The answer is: No, you shouldn’t go it alone. Particularly if you have been seriously hurt, the insurance companies’ attorneys will do everything they can to keep your payout as low as possible. Remember, they negotiate claims every day. So it is extremely important that you also have a skilled car accident attorney in your corner to fight for:

  • Payment of past and future medical bills.
  • Lost wages and decreased earning potential.
  • Compensation for your pain and suffering.
  • Damages to your vehicle.
  • Punitive damages meant to punish the at-fault party.

We work quickly and efficiently to keep your case moving forward. Our office employs the latest technology to efficiently manage your case and streamline communication among all the parties involved. We save time by quickly working with doctors, law enforcement, and insurance companies. We will collect electronic records of any evidence that we may need to build a strong case for you.

We track down every possible source of compensation. In addition to pursuing compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance, we will explore uninsured motorist (UM) coverage and underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage through your own insurer. And in cases where a defective auto part caused the crash, we will identify manufacturers, distributors, designers, and retailers that may be liable for damages.

We leave no stone unturned in investigating your accident. We will interview witnesses and enlist the help of various experts such as medical specialists, financial planners, and accident re-constructionists. A thorough investigation is important to prove exactly who was at fault and how much you have suffered as a result of your injuries.

Don’t Wait to Get Started on Your Case

We understand that the days and weeks after a serious car accident can be chaotic, especially when you are coping with severe injuries. However, the sooner you talk with an experienced St. Louis car accident attorney, the better.

That’s because the law limits the amount of time you have to file a claim in car accident cases. Meanwhile, with every day that passes, memories become less sharp and the opportunity to collect crucial evidence fades.
