St. Louis Personal Injury Attorneys

Trial-Ready Lawyers Fighting for You

When your life is disrupted by an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you deserve the best help there is. Recovering fair compensation is essential to receiving the treatment you need so you can return to your normal life. Our St. Louis lawyers want to help you maximize your claim and fight back against insurers who don’t want to pay what your injuries are worth.

Some attorneys promise to negotiate a settlement on your behalf. We promise to fight for you. Persuading an insurer to agree on a fair payout might be an ideal outcome, but it’s far from assured. As qualified trial lawyers, we have leverage against bad settlement offers.

When we determine litigation is necessary to help you get the results you’re after, we show up prepared. There’s a reason we’ve won a majority of the trials we’ve fought. Call our attorneys today to get started on your strategy for recovery.

Don't Settle for Less

Often, injury victims will accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without talking to an attorney first. This is a good way to lose out on the cash you need to fund your recovery. Your expenses will likely go far beyond the medical bills you’re facing right now. With the help of an experienced legal team, you can determine what damages you may be eligible to receive and put together a strong claim to send an insurer.

If your negotiations with an insurer come to an impasse, our team is happy to step in to help. We know the techniques insurance adjusters use to try to underpay injury victims, and we won’t fall for them. If they won’t settle, we aren’t afraid to take them to court. When you work with Geoff Meyerkord Law Firm, you’ll have a team that will fight for you, no matter what.

A Team of Legal Professionals

Taking Your Case to Trial to Get You Justice

Successful Trial Attorneys

While some personal injury firms brag about their skill in settling cases, we have the mettle you need on your side when the insurer you’re up against refuses to make a fair agreement. Settling only works when the other party is acting in good faith. If they simply don’t want to pay the compensation you deserve, you need someone who can bring a tougher approach.

Our attorneys have 24 years of experience and a winning record in court. Litigation might take more work than a settlement does, but we will put in the preparation, so you have the strongest case possible. When you’re facing a tough insurer, you need a tough team on your side as well.

Quality Representation

As a small firm, we give each client individual attention and a personalized case plan. We can provide such quality services because we are selective about the cases we accept. Prevailing in a personal injury case requires a true partnership between an attorney and client. We get to know everyone who walks through our doors, so we know we’re accepting cases that are a good fit.

When we choose to work with a client, they get our full dedication and resources. Our attorneys are available 24/7 to answer your questions. If you are looking for a kind and empathetic team to take your side, reach out to Geoff Meyerkord Law Firm today. We want to know how we can help you.
