St. Louis, MO Personal Injury Attorney FAQ
Why do I need to talk to an attorney right away?
You need to talk to an attorney as soon as possible so all your rights are protected. An attorney can find out how much insurance is available to compensate you. There can be complicated insurance questions including whether uninsured motorist coverage is available, whether multiple policies of the uninsured motorist coverage can be stacked to provide additional coverage, whether underinsured motorist coverage is available, whether the defendant has excess insurance coverage or an umbrella policy.
There also may be other people who are responsible for the person who injured you such as the employer or principal of the driver who injured you or it may not have been an injury as the result of malpractice, but because of a defective product instead. An experienced personal injury attorney can explore all avenues of potential recovery. It is also important to preserve all the evidence in your case.
