St. Louis Car Accident Attorneys
We’ve Been Helping Accident Victims for 24 Years
A car accident can turn your life upside down. Aside from having to fix or replace your car and deal with the shock and fear of being hit, you may be seriously injured and have to miss work. With the high cost of healthcare, the treatment you need might seem unattainable. If you have been put in this situation by someone else’s careless driving, let our team know—because we are here to help.
We know how complicated your life can become in the aftermath of a bad car accident. You need to focus on your recovery first—but instead you may find yourself on the phone arguing with insurance adjusters for the compensation you need to pay for your medical treatment. Some accident victims, frustrated after going around in circles with an insurance company, will end up accepting a settlement that doesn’t cover all their losses. Geoff Meyerkord Law Firm can help you fight for something better.
With 24 years of legal experience, our team has the knowledge and determination to build a compelling case for you. We aren’t afraid to take an insurer to trial if we have to. Our team knows the methods insurers will use to try to deny you justice. We can help you pursue the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
There’s a reason insurers are used to getting away with paltry settlements: Most people just don’t know how to calculate them. The insurance adjuster you’re talking to may seem friendly, but know their math is designed to save them money, not to get you the help you need. Because our team has taken on many of these cases, we can help you calculate the real costs. This might include things like:
- Car repair or replacement
- Cost of a rental car
- Missed work
- Cost of future medical treatment your doctor recommends
- Lost earning potential
- Pain & suffering
Insurance adjusters often try to get away with covering your incurred medical expenses and the bill from the auto repair shop—and that’s it. While these are the most obvious damages you’re facing, they may be dwarfed by the accident’s impact on your future. Our team can not only help you identify all the damages you might be eligible for but also calculate their full worth.
We Can Help When Serious Injuries Happen
The higher the speed of an accident, the more severe the injuries tend to be. Many lucky people are able to walk away from the scene of a crash. Others need immediate and continuous medical attention. A trip to the emergency room alone can cost over $3,000 and medical bills balloon quickly the more care is needed. Car accidents can cause catastrophic injuries like:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Fractured bones
- Back and neck injury
- Severe burns
These are the types of injuries that can cause fundamental changes for the rest of a person’s life. If the losses are serious enough, the victim may not be able to return to their life as it was. The difficulties they will face for the rest of their life should be taken into account by a settlement. However, making a claim for permanent injuries can be difficult: Arguing medical damage often requires a high level of fluency in technical terms. Our team knows how to make the right arguments, and how to make your needs plain to a jury.
