If you were involved in an accident where you were injured and where you were not at fault, contacting an attorney is an important first step in protecting your legal rights. While an attorney can neither undo the unfortunate accident nor heal your injuries, he can ensure that you will be compensated to the fullest extent allowed by law. He can work with insurance companies and defense counsel to make absolutely sure that the most favorable settlement is reached. And, in the event that your case goes to trial, you will need an attorney who can take every step in the fact-finding and discovery phases to make sure you have the best case to present to a jury.
At the Lindley Law Office, we represent plaintiffs in several types of personal injury cases, including car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, and dog bite cases. While the statute of limitations for most of these cases is 5 years in Missouri, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible while the valuable evidence and recollections necessary for the most favorable settlement are still fresh. The quicker you call, the quicker you can get back to the place, physically and financially, that you were before your unfortunate accident.
