Insider Information on Insurance Company Tactics

You need someone who knows Missouri injury law and knows the tactics the insurance companies will try to use against you. At one time, our very own attorney Benjamin Sansone was an insurance attorney. He fights for the people of St Louis now, and he knows the insurance company tactics and the ways they will try to manipulate you into a settlement. If you are suffering from some form of healthcare negligence, you will need an experienced injury lawyer.

The insurance company wants to silence you and leave you financially, emotionally, and physically destitute. They may offer a small settlement that won’t even pay for your medical bills, and will leave you with no further recourse against the ones who hurt you.

We often see in legal news that an injured person has settled for significantly less than their case is worth, simply because they didn’t have the right firm fighting for them. Our firm has obtained millions of dollars in lawsuits and settlements for our clients who have suffered from personal injury, including medical malpractice and wrongful death.

With an experienced St. Louis personal injury attorney firm like Sansone, Sumner & Lauber in your corner of the ring, you can be assured that we will fight for you, so that you can focus on healing.

Sansone, Sumner & Lauber is a full service personal injury law firm that handles all types of personal injury litigation, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle crashes and injuries due to medical malpractice.

Many personal injury lawsuits involve injuries in automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents and other motor vehicle accidents. If another motorist drives carelessly, disobeys traffic laws or disregards the safety of others, that driver should be held accountable for the injuries caused by his or her negligence.

A serious injury can disrupt your life and leave you unable to work for many months. It can put your family under financial stress as you struggle to deal with unexpected bills and loss of income. You should not be saddled with medical bills and other expenses related to injuries caused by someone else.  If you have been seriously injured by a negligent driver in St. Louis, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the at-fault driver.

Let our automobile accident lawyers at Sansone, Sumner & Lauber review the details of your crash and provide guidance about how to best to proceed. After a serious motor vehicle accident, it is crucial to have a good understanding of your legal options so can make forward-looking decisions. Our attorneys have helped many people move forward with their lives after serious accidents.

Frequently, motorcyclists and their passengers are seriously injured in St. Louis because of other drivers’ inattention or negligence. At Sansone, Sumner & Lauber, we know from being motorcycle riders ourselves that most motorcyclists pay close attention to traffic safety laws and drive responsibly. Motorcyclists often suffer injuries in crashes due to another driver’s error or inattention. Many automobile drivers do not look out for motorcyclists and cause crashes because they fail to see a motorcyclist.

Attorney Ben Sansone knows well the struggles of recovering from a motorcycle crash because he has had the experience of being an injured motorcycle rider. Mr. Sansone brings a motorcyclist’s perspective and understanding to each case he handles involving a motorcyclist who has been seriously injured.

As a longtime motorcycle rider, Mr. Sansone recognizes that bikers often unfairly encounter cultural bias from other motorists, some police and some jurors. When selecting prospective jurors in motorcycle accident trials, we question potential jurors and try to screen those who may have misconceptions about motorcycle riders. Being alert to the biases that motorcyclists encounter is a critical part of being an effective lawyer for an injured motorcyclist.

Accidents involving large trucks and automobiles are more complex than other motor vehicle accidents. The injuries are often more severe because of the massive size and weight of tractor trailers. Truck accidents may have multiple contributing factors. A trucker may be speeding, driving too fast for conditions, tailgating, talking on a cell phone or driving while dangerously fatigued.

A trucking company may contribute to a truck accident by failing to perform regular maintenance on a semi or allowing a driver with a history of driving violations to stay on the road. Brake failures and brakes out of adjustment contribute to many truck accidents.

Truck accident claims may involve several insurance companies representing the commercial trucking company, the truck driver, the owner of the trailer and the cargo shipper. Trucking companies are required by law to keep fleet maintenance records and driver logs for a certain amount of time.

Our St. Louis truck accident attorneys move quickly when we investigate an 18-wheeler accident to secure those records. An experienced commercial truck accident lawyer will seek to identify all the potentially liable parties, their insurance companies and the policy limits of their coverage. That can expand the amount of insurance money to cover your losses.

If you suspect that you or a loved one has been injured by substandard medical care, you will need the help of an experienced St. Louis medical malpractice lawyer. Medical malpractice cases are challenging cases to pursue. Not every doctor error qualifies as medical negligence.

Health care providers have a legal responsibility to provide treatment that complies with established standards. If they deviate from those standards and commit an error resulting in an injury, that may constitute malpractice. But neither the doctor nor the hospital is likely to admit that you received substandard care or that a preventable medical error occurred.

As a patient, you may have only unanswered questions and suspicions that something went wrong. The case may involve a surgical error, a birth injury, an emergency room error or other type of preventable error. You will need to have a knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer obtain your medical records and conduct an independent investigation to find out what really happened.

At Sansone, Sumner & Lauber, our medical malpractice attorneys work with highly qualified independent medical experts to analyze your medical records. We collect all relevant medical records regarding your medical treatment and have medical professionals evaluate whether a doctor or other health care provider failed to follow the recognized standard of care. If the medical expert believes that medical negligence occurred in your case, the expert will provide an opinion and be prepared to testify on your behalf.  We are successful in settling most cases without a trial.

A compassionate medical malpractice attorney at Sansone, Sumner & Lauber is available to assist your family. We are available to answer your questions and explain your legal options for seeking compensation to help with your medical bills and other expenses.

Every medical malpractice case has its own facts, and past results are not predictive of the outcome of your case. But our attorneys have a strong record of helping clients in Missouri and Illinois obtain settlements and verdicts for their losses due to medical malpractice.
