Do I need a personal injury lawyer?

We handle all injury cases, including trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, wrongful death, dog bites, slip & fall injuries, head & brain injuries, nursing home neglect, construction injuries and work related injuries. We also handle traffic law cases for traffic accidents, speeding tickets, and DWI & DUIs.
What qualifies as a personal injury?
A personal injury can be physical or emotional harm caused to a person as a result of another person's negligence, careless actions, or even intentional conduct. Situations where personal injury law can be applied are accidents, defective products, intentional harm, and similar acts.
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
Every state has what is called a statute of limitations, or in other words, a certain amount of time to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit. In Missouri, the statute of limitations varies depending on the type of case. Failure to file a claim or lawsuit within the prescribed time period under the statute of limitations could forever bar you from recovery. That is why it is very important to discuss your case with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. At Missouri Injury Law Firm, we stand ready to discuss your case and provide you with the expertise and information you need.
What are your fees?
At Missouri Injury Law Firm, most of our injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. So we only get paid if we recover money compensation for you! With that being said, because Missouri Injury Law Firm offers a variation of legal services we cannot provide a definitive fee. Like every client we service, every case is unique. An estimate of service fees can be discussed upon speaking to our legal team at the consultation.
