Personal Injury Attorney

Serving Clients Throughout North Central Missouri

Choosing the right attorney when it comes to personal injury law is extremely important due to the fact that clients often have just one opportunity to achieve a successful outcome to their case. It is important to have a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney guide the client to a fair and proper settlement, or if no such settlement is achieved, to represent the client effectively in Court.

Causes of injuries and death are often a result of:

  • Automobile and motorcycle collisions;
  • Medical malpractice;
  • Brain or spinal cord injury;
  • Toxic poisoning;
  • Serious burns;
  • Slip and falls; and
  • Work-related accidents.

Timing is extremely important for several reasons:

  1. Evidence must be discovered and preserved;
  2. Witnesses need to be found and interviewed;
  3. Defendants must be identified; and
  4. Most lawsuits are required to be filed within a limited amount of time after the injury has occurred or it will be forever too late to file a lawsuit.

It is important to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to negotiate a fair settlement, or to file a lawsuit on behalf of those who are injured. However, people often ask:

Where can I find an attorney I can trust?

How much will it cost and what is a fair fee?

How do I know which attorney is best for this particular type of injury case?

Can I believe the attorney advertising I see on TV, the internet and in the phone book?

Michael can guide clients through these questions and help them find a personal injury attorney to skillfully represent them with their personal injury matter.

In addition to helping clients find the right attorney, Michael can stay involved in the lawsuit as co-attorney with the personal injury attorney to help oversee the case and assist as opportunity requires. However, Michael does not individually represent clients in Court. In these co-attorney relationships, the legal fee the client pays is not increased. Rather, Michael and the other attorney share the contingency fee which is only paid if the client wins their case or receives a settlement.

In litigation, finding the right attorney can be the difference between success or failure.
