Meet St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyer Benjamin J. Sansone
St. Louis personal injury attorney Benjamin J. Sansone approaches his law practice by applying the same credo to all his cases, big and small alike.
“My clients get me handling every aspect of the case, not somebody else,” he says. “They get my absolute personal dedication to their case.”
Sansone has been employing that personal touch since 2004, when he decided that he wanted to be a plaintiff’s personal-injury attorney instead of working in a law firm that defended insurance companies.
After Ben got his J.D. from St. Louis University School of Law in 2002, after serving on the Law Review and graduating in the top 10 percent of his class, he joined a large insurance-defense firm. It did not take long for him to realize that helping injuries victims was more important to him than saving insurance companies money.
Ben Sansone Helping Victims of Personal Injury
“That’s when I started seeing the other side of personal-injury cases and saw it for what it really was,” he says.
The last straw for him came when he had to travel to the home of a grandmother who had been running a small, informal day-care service out of a house that burned down after a child had kicked over a candle. His job was to tell her that her insurance was being denied because she did not disclose to her homeowner’s insurance company that she watched kids at her house as an informal daycare for friends and family member’s children to help make ends meet.
“I felt like trash,” Sansone says. “That’s when I decided I was quitting and starting my own law-firm.”
He went solo, developing his practice in a small office for several years until he and Gary Lauber, also a solo, decided to join forces.
Today Sansone concentrates his practice almost entirely on plaintiff’s personal-injury cases, including auto accidents, premises liability, and medical malpractice.
He has excellent ratings on Avvo for both Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice:
