St.Joseph
Personal Injury Attorneys

Murphy, Taylor, Siemens & Elliott, P.C.

The consequences of an accident are far-reaching and can last a lifetime. And when you’re not the individual who caused the accident, the suffering of these consequences is all the more impactful. The victim of an accident is no doubt in pain and worried about sorting out all the necessary details that it brings. Not to mention, a person’s life goes on despite such a harrowing ordeal, and they’re expected to maintain their normal obligations.

The attorneys at St. Joe Law are compassionate and have helped countless clients to navigate through many difficult situations. Allowing us to handle the varying components of an accident gives our clients the space and peace of mind to focus on healing from their injuries.

Some of the obvious stressors that a victim of an accident may be dealing with are seeing that proper medical treatment for injuries is received, missing work and losing income, and watching medical bills pile up. In addition, you may be trying to establish liability on behalf of the at-fault party, dealing with insurance adjustors, and trying to get your vehicle or other damaged property repaired. All of these things are overwhelming and can result in depression and uncertainty about your family’s future.

Experience and Knowledge of the Laws is Critical

Missouri case law grants victims of personal injury accidents the right to recover for medical bills and also receive compensation for lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. The attorneys at St. Joe Law understand the applicable laws and will advocate for our client’s best interests, ensuring their rights are protected and the best possible outcome is achieved.

Specializing in auto accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, wrongful death claims and more, our esteemed and respected lawyers are aggressive and trial-tested -- and our results show it! To add even more peace of mind, the attorneys at St. Joe Law never receive a penny for their work, until a personal injury case is concluded. We take all the risk so our clients’ stress is minimized.

In the beginning stages of an accident, the adjustors from the involved insurance companies will seem amenable and courteous, anxious to conclude a claim. But remember that the insurance company doesn’t have a layperson’s best interests at heart. Unless the victim has an experienced advocate representing their interests, there’s the risk of receiving compensation that’s far less than what’s warranted.

As shrewd a negotiator that an individual may be, unless the insurance companies have the risk of a lawsuit in their future, they are far less inclined to be fair. But most cases don’t end up in litigation or a lawsuit. The majority of our claims are settled in a pre-litigation phase, saving our clients the nightmare of a lengthy court trial. We work diligently to conclude a personal injury claim in a fastidious, yet fair manner.

However, if a case does end up in litigation, there’s not a better team of lawyers than the people at St. Joe Law to get the job done. We have hours upon hours of experience in the courtroom and within the paradigm of the court system. We understand what the court requires and have positive rapport with many of the folks within the court structure. We will bring this experience to a case in litigation and see that its promptly and generously concluded.
