- Automobile Accidents
Every Missourian has a duty to exercise the highest degree of care while operating a motor vehicle. The failure to do so is called negligence.
- Commercial Disputes
Our lawyers have represented various small to mid-sized companies in commercial disputes. We have had success in all types of commercial cases including contract disputes, non-compete violations, and trade secret violations.
- Consumer Fraud
Under the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act, the use of deception, fraud, false pretense, false promise, misrepresentation, unfair practice or the concealment, suppression, or ommission of any material fact in connection with the sale or advertisement of any merchandise in trade or commerce is an unlawful practice.
- Defective Products
The manufacturer of a product may be liable in damages for one who is injured as a result of using a defective product. The defect may be in the manufacture, design, labeling or even packaging of the product.
- Legal Malpractice
Lawyers are no less prone to error than physicians or other professionals. We handle meritorious cases of lawyer malpractice even against colleague lawyers in St. Louis. Many lawyers do not.
- Medical Malpractice
Health care providers, including physicians, are required to exercise “that degree of skill and learning ordinarily used by members of their profession under the same or similar circumstances”.
- Nursing Home Neglect
Nursing home populations are burgeoning. The quality of care exercised by such homes varies widely.
- Sexual Abuse
These cases arise when people in a position of power or authority take advantage of one entrusted with their care. The psychological and emotional injury suffered by victims of sexual abuse can be debilitating.
- Slips and Falls
Property owners owe a duty to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. The failure to do so may subject the owner to liability if a tenant or visitor is injured as a result.
- Train Accidents
Railroad crossings are hazardous. When trains aren’t properly maintained, when there are unsafe crossings, or when negligent conductors irresponsibly barrel down the tracks, a serious accident may occur often resulting in serious injury or even death.
- Workers’ Compensation
Missouri law provides a person injured on the job with three principal benefits: Medical treatment, a portion of their regular income while they are unable to work, and compensation for permanent disability.
- Wrongful Death
People sometimes die as the result of the conduct of others. In the event of death caused by another’s negligence, the deceased’s survivors possess an action for the loss of the support, guidance and companionship of their loved one.
