Motor Vehicle Accidents

DBJ has successfully resolved hundreds of automobile cases over many decades.  Our results include a $45 million verdict and many dozens of cases involving multi-million dollar settlements or verdicts.

Over six million automobile accidents occur in the United States every year, far and away the most common type of personal injury. Because nearly everyone has had some experience with car accidents, you may feel that you can handle negotiations with the insurance company yourself, but it is essential that you obtain legal representation immediately in the event of any but the most minor car accidents.

All Missouri automobile drivers by law must carry minimum liability insurance. However, insurance companies have a vested interest in settling claims for the least amount possible, and auto accident victims frequently do not know how much they should be compensated for injuries and damages. Future medical expenses are difficult to estimate and many serious injuries do not manifest themselves for months or even years. Insurance claims often involve complex legal issues and the insurance company may try to shift the blame to you for an accident that was not your fault. The chances of a fair recovery are remote at best without the services of an experienced personal injury attorney.

If you have been involved in an automobile accident, our expert car accident attorneys will make sure you meet the statute of limitations for filing a claim, deal with the insurance adjusters, and assist you in preparing proper medical care documentation, as well as interviewing witnesses and preserving evidence for trial. We will also help you decide the most effective course of legal action to take in the event of complicating factors such as an automobile manufacturing defect or defective tires. We will then negotiate a settlement or represent you at trial to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Please call DBJ today at 1-800-875-5972 for a free consultation.
