Call 573-875-1991 for a free consultation with a Missouri personal injury attorney to discuss your claims following a car crash.
The Columbia, Missouri, auto accident injury attorneys at Lear Werts LLP assist the firm’s clients in recovering fair compensation for injuries and property damage suffered in motor vehicle accidents. Insurance companies can and do improperly evaluate claims. They at times may make an unreasonably low settlement offer for a car wreck or deny a legitimate claim altogether. For that reason, it is always recommended that if a car or truck wreck resulted in serious injury or a fatality, the claim be evaluated by a lawyer with extensive experience in personal injury claims.
If you would like to make arrangements for a free consultation with a Lear Werts lawyer, contact the firm. The attorneys will evaluate any settlement offer, consider the extent of your injuries and property loss, explain what options the law provides, and recommend a course of action designed to best fulfill your personal goals. Many car crash cases can be resolved without litigation, but the attorneys at Lear Werts have helped clients through the civil justice system and ready to do so for you.
As your lawyers, Brad Lear and Todd Werts will document the full extent of your injuries, investigate the facts surrounding the accident, monitor your medical treatment, and explore all possible sources of compensation for your loss. They will insist the insurance company not only consider the immediate medical expenses, but the possibility of future full or partial disability and loss of employability when determining the size of the settlement. If you are not offered an adequate settlement, they are well prepared to take the case to trial. The firm has worked with clients in select motor vehicle accident claims, including those involving:
- Head-on collisions, rear-end collisions, SUV rollovers
- Drunk driving accidents, hit-and-run accidents, pedestrian knock-down accidents, bicycle crashes
- Accidents caused by roadway design defects, unmarked hazards, improper signs, inadequately-marked construction sites
- Defective car parts such as tires, safety restraints (seat belts, air bags), brakes, roll bars
- Driver negligence including inattention to driving, falling asleep at the wheel, failing to obey traffic laws
- Serious or catastrophic injuries such as head injuries, whiplash, brain damage, spinal cord damage, amputation, or fatal injuries
