Top-Rated Trial Lawyers Serving Missouri & Illinois
If you have been injured by the negligence of another, a knowledgeable St. Louis personal injury attorney from the Finney Injury Law firm can advocate on your behalf to get the best settlement possible. Insurance companies often run right over victims of an accident caused by negligence. Despite the commercials we all see on television which present insurance companies as being your “friend” in the time of need, the reality is that insurance companies are interested in their financial bottom line, and nothing more.
Because of this, insurance companies rarely take victims of accidents seriously, and their only goal is to pay out as little as possible. This is where your experienced St. Louis personal injury attorney comes in. At our injury law firm we have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies. We know how to negotiate the best settlement possible on your behalf. In short, insurance companies simply take your injuries much more seriously when you have an attorney advocating for you. Our firm handles personal injury law, brain injuries, premises liability, slip and falls and childcare injury and liability law. The Finney Injury Law firm has earned its reputation as one of the elite litigation firms in the St. Louis area through dedication, preparation and painstaking cases analysis. As a result, Finney Injury Law firm has experienced repeated successes against large corporations.
Finney Injury Law Practice AreasWhether you have suffered a car accident with injuries, a motorcycle accident, a truck accident, a bicycle accident, a bus accident or were struck by a vehicle while walking, we can help. Or, perhaps you have suffered a slip and fall with injuries in a public area, such as a grocery store, restaurant, bar, retail store, or on a public sidewalk, escalator or staircase. You may have been injured while on vacation, perhaps at a swimming pool, or at a theme park. Even if you started your case with another attorney who does not want to settle, Finney Injury Law is always prepared to assist, co-counsel or take over the case in the event it goes to trial. Consider our practice areas:
At Finney Injury Law our accident practice is focused on all types of accidents which fall within the personal injury realm. This can include car accidents, when two cars are involved, a passenger vehicle/truck accident, a bus accident, a motorcycle/car or truck accident, a bicycle/car or truck accident and pedestrian accidents after the pedestrian has been struck by a vehicle. Injuries from these types of accidents can be quite severe, particularly in the area of truck, motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents. Severe injuries can result which require years—or even a lifetime—of medical interventions and may prevent the injured person from ever returning to their prior work and their life.
Brain injuries are among the most severe type of injury following an accident. Not only can a brain injury have serious physical repercussions, it can also leave the victim with sometimes permanent cognitive and emotional issues. Brain injuries can require months, year or a lifetime of care, preventing the victim from ever having the kind of life he or she had prior to the accident. The family of a person who has suffered a brain injury will suffer as well, both financially and emotionally. Even a relatively mild concussion can result in changes in cognitive abilities as well as physical issues. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, whether mild, moderate or severe, we can help.
Premises Liability Law
Owners of public property are responsible for ensuring that property is safe for the public. This means the owners must take all reasonable steps to ensure there are no hazards on the property. “Reasonable” means that when a hazard exists, if the owner was aware of the hazard then it must be rectified promptly, or hazard signs erected. Slip and falls are one of the primary types of accidents which result in a premises liability lawsuit. Slip and falls can occur when there is a spill on the floor of a grocery store, restaurant, bar, retail store or other public place. When it is rainy or snowy outside, water and ice can be tracked inside these same areas, causing a slip and trip hazard. Extremely narrow staircases, uneven surfaces, rugs which slip or slide, extension cords stretched across a walkway, items stacked in a walkway, poor lighting, or inadequate handholds can all cause slip and fall issues. Dog bites fall under premises liability law, particularly when a dog owner knows his or her dog could potentially bite and takes no precautions. Swimming pool accidents will also fall under premises liability law. If you have a premises liability claim, the attorneys at the Finney Injury Law firm can help ensure you receive an equitable settlement for your injuries and lost wages.
