Personal Injury

There are a large variety of types of personal injury matters.  Including but not limited to:

  • Car, Motorcycle Auto accidents and collisions 
  • Boating accidents and collisions
  • Dangerous or Defective products
  • Death
  • Farm accidents
  • Medical malpractice and/or negligence
  • Premises and property injury and liability claims
  • Slip and fall claims
  • Work related injuries
  • Worker’s Compensation claims
  • Wrongful death claims

 All of these claims are personal injury type claims and they affect an individual’s life and/or family.  Quite often these claims result in financial hardship because of loss of job/income due to inability to continue to work and due to large medical bills. The lives of injured persons are also often changed in negative ways because of discomfort from the injuries, worry over the mounting medical bills and often because they are unable to completely heal from their injuries.  

In most cases insurance companies become involved once an incident is reported. It is rare for insurance companies to offer adequate compensation without the threat of impending litigation.  In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed for an individual or their family to obtain the compensation that they are entitled to receive and the matter is heard by a jury in an attempt to determine the amount of liability and damages that should be accessed in each unique set of circumstances.  Missouri, being a comparative fault state, requires a matter to be thoroughly analyzed to determine the degree of fault and liability for the individuals involved. 

 It takes an experienced attorney to ensure that their client’s claim has been thoroughly investigated and that there is sufficient proof to the injuries, fault and liabilities associated with each claim.  l have the experience you need and I have litigated numerous personal injury matters and have assisted my clients in obtaining the recovery that they each are entitled to given their unique set of circumstances.  

I handle personal injury matters for clients throughout the Southeast Missouri Bootheel region including all of Dunklin, Stoddard, Pemiscot, New Madrid, Butler, Scott, Mississippi, and Cape Girardeau Counties.
