St. Louis Auto Accident Attorneys

Types of Auto Accident Cases We Handle

Automobile accidents occur frequently in St. Louis, where major Interstates like I-44, I-70, and 270 combine with a high population density and a reliance on the trucking and shipping industries. This provides the perfect storm for dangerous driving conditions that result in numerous injuries from automobile accidents.

Making matters worse, victims and family must deal with insurance adjusters who are often unpleasant and unreasonable. Bad experiences with insurance adjusters are often what lead people to contact our firm.

At Buchanan, Williams & O’Brien, we have over 50 years of combined experience handling personal injury cases involving all types of motor vehicle accidents, including:

We also understand that the prospect of contacting accident and injury attorneys can be stressful in and of itself. Dealing with physical pain, time-consuming medical care, and the stress of lost income and trying to pay (or arrange payment for) medical bills, can make the situation even worse.

As injury attorneys focused on helping our fellow St. Louis citizens, our first priority is to take some of these stressful responsibilities off of your shoulders by making sure you understand your rights and options.

Quick, Thorough Action

We act quickly to build your case by securing statements from accident witnesses, usually before the insurance company is able to. We will gather your medical records and have you examined by doctors to show the extent of your injuries and the impact the injuries will have on your life. Clearly showing the seriousness of injuries to the insurance company first and then, if necessary, to the jury is critical to maximizing the amount of money you recover.

Most importantly, we will abide by our Mission Statement:

To provide you with quality legal service that is courteous and professional. To be aggressive, zealous advocates for you, always working hard to achieve the best results on your behalf. To be friendly, courteous and responsive; explain your rights and answer your questions; quickly return your phone calls; diligently handle your case; discuss your injury claim at no charge with no pressure; and always keep you informed about what is happening with your case.

Dealing with The Insurance Company

At Buchanan, Williams & O’Brien, P.C., we know how insurance companies play games to trap plaintiffs. Before you file a claim, it’s important to know that the defendant’s insurance company isn’t your friend or ally. The priority of an insurance company is to protect their interests and maximize their profits. If a rival insurance company contacts you, make sure to direct them to your insurance claims adjuster or personal injury attorney.

Insurance companies have developed many tactics to trick a plaintiff into sabotaging their claim. For example, insurance companies will record phone calls in the hope that you accidentally reveal information they can use against your case. Insurance companies also pressure plaintiffs to settle their cases before retaining legal representation. When you settle for what an insurance company offers, you’re signing a waiver that limits or invalidates your ability to fight for additional compensation in the future. While it may seem like a convenient deal at the time, the compensation may not account for the full extent of your actual financial and medical needs. Hiring a personal injury lawyer is often the only way to seek the maximum compensation you require.
