The goal of our firm is to maximize your recovery in a car accident case so that you can recover the full amount of damages for your injuries and losses. Toward this goal, it is important that we act quickly to preserve evidence. We must also prove what caused the accident, credibly and comprehensively prove your damages, and identify and prove liability against all of the responsible parties who caused injury to you or a loved one. As a car accident lawyer in St. Louis, I will work diligently toward accomplishing these goals.
Preserving the Evidence
Preserving the evidence includes securing evidence from the scene (including securing accident vehicles and their component parts), securing witness statements, photographing key elements of the case, and documenting any road design and maintenance defects that may exist at the accident scene.
Proving Accident Causation
Proving what caused the accident includes proving your case through the use of aspects such as accident reconstruction, accident and biomechanical expert witnesses, the effective use of demonstration exhibits, videotaped accident recreation, and experimental tests designed to show the jury key elements at issue in the case, along with computer simulation and computer animation.
Proving Your Damages
Credibly and comprehensively proving your damages involves the use of damages experts, like treating physicians, independent medical experts who testify about past and future medical bills, economists, vocational rehabilitation experts, life care planners, and psychologists who can testify regarding an auto accident victim’s injuries, lost earnings and earning capacity, ability to perform household services, psychological well-being, ability to enjoy life, and pain and suffering.
In a car accident, there are often multiple parties responsible. These parties can include another driver, a municipality responsible for road conditions, a manufacturer of a defective seat belt or tire, or a construction company that may have been performing road maintenance. In addition, a bar that supplied alcohol to an intoxicated driver may also be liable.
Car Accident Case
If you have been injured or a loved one has been injured or killed, I and our firm will work hard to identify and seek recovery against all of those responsible.
I would invite you to read more on this website about how we work to prove liability in car and truck accidents such as car crashes caused by tire defects, injuries caused by seat belt defects, or other causes.
If we are retained, we will take on the full burden of proving each and every aspect of your car accident case against all those responsible. We will represent you on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not owe us anything unless and until we recover for you.
