Why should I hire a personal injury attorney?

If you or a loved one has suffered hearing loss because of another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical care and equipment, lost current and future wages and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, determining if you have a case for compensation can be challenging, and attempting to negotiate a settlement or obtain compensation in court can be difficult. Trust our St. Louis County personal injury lawyers to provide the support you need to pursue compensation for your injuries.

Cases are handled on a contingency basis, so you don’t pay unless we win. We work hard to build a strong case for your compensation. Count on our staff to:

Gather necessary documents and evidence – To create an effective personal injury case, it is necessary to gather a range of documentation. Our staff will help you gather the required paperwork, including police reports of the accident, medical records and more.

Consult medical experts – Proving that hearing loss resulted from an accident can be challenging. It can also be difficult to prove the extent of the hearing loss, or the impact the loss may have on your life. Our staff maintains relationships with many medical experts who are able to provide independent testimony on the cause and impact of hearing loss.

Negotiate with insurers – Our extensive experience negotiating with insurance companies helps us to pursue a favorable settlement. By doing so, we attempt to get you the money you need and deserve as painlessly as possible. Of course, we will never advise you to accept a settlement that does not cover all of your losses and future costs.

State your case in court – In some cases, negotiating a settlement with the insurer is not possible, or is against your best interests. If a settlement is not possible in your case, we will aggressively pursue compensation for your losses in court.
