Types of Personal Injury Claims

The types of personal injury claims that the trial lawyers at Sansone & Lauber have experience handling include:

Sansone & Lauber handles a wide range of personal injury claims for people in Missouri and Illinois. If you’ve been hurt because of someone else’s careless acts, we want to help you pursue the compensation you need to move on with your life.

Auto accidents cause the largest number of serious injuries including head injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death of teenagers.

Cyclists often sustain serious injuries in collisions caused by inattentive drivers of cars and trucks. Bicyclists have the same right to the road and legal rights as operators of other vehicles.

If you have been charged with a crime, you have rights – but you have to use them. Our criminal defense attorneys fight for the rights of people who are facing criminal charges in Missouri and Illinois. Contact Sansone & Lauber as soon as possible.

Distracted driving can be as dangerous as drunk driving, yet many motorists choose to do it all the time. When driver distraction causes a crash, the distracted driver and their insurance company could be held liable for the losses.

Shareable electric scooters have started popping up in cities all over the country. While they might be convenient, they certainly pose accident risks to scooter riders, pedestrians, and motorists. Out lawyers help victims of e-scooter accidents.

Motorcycles have surged in popularity in recent decades. However, many Missouri motorists still overlook motorcyclists on the highways and cause serious accidents simply because they are not looking out for motorcycles.

The standard for medical malpractice is whether the doctor or health care provider has failed to use the degree of medical skill and learning typically used in similar circumstances. Sansone & Lauber investigates medical malpractice cases to determine whether you have a valid claim, at no charge including: anesthesia errors, misdiagnosis, wrong-site surgery and more.

Residents of nursing homes and long-term care facility are vulnerable to neglect and abuse because of their physical limitations and in many cases, their cognitive impairment. By filing a nursing home abuse claim, you may be standing up for your own loved one and also helping to prevent another family’s relative from experiencing similar neglect or abuse.

Some of the most severe cases we see are those which involve brain injuries or spinal injuries. These are often life threatening injuries and even in less severe cases can cause a serious loss in quality of life after an accident. Medical care costs for these injuries are also extraordinarily expensive and it is important to get compensation in the event you are injured by someone due to negligence.

If you’ve been hurt because of a dangerous condition on someone else’s property, a premises liability claim could provide you with the money you need to pay your medical bills, offset your lost wages, and account for your pain and suffering.

Getting hit by a car is a pedestrian’s worst nightmare. Many drivers fail to use caution around the most vulnerable people on the road. When someone on foot gets hurt due to a motorist’s carelessness, a personal injury claim could provide compensation.

The attorneys at Sansone & Lauber help people who have been harmed by dangerous and defective consumer goods. Contact us if you have suffered injuries due to an unsafe product.

Crashes involving 18-wheelers and other large trucks often result in serious injuries. Multiple potential defendants, trucking regulations, and complex insurance arrangements make cases more complex. You need an experienced lawyer like those at Sansone & Lauber.

Most workers who suffer an on-the-job injury in Missouri and Illinois are entitled to compensation benefits provided by their employer, regardless of who caused the accident. If you are running into resistance obtaining workers’ compensation benefits, a workers’ compensation attorney can offer guidance.

When a loved one dies as a result of another person’s disregard for safety or misconduct, it can be devastating to a family, both emotionally and financially. While no amount of money will replace your loved one, the full compensation afforded by Missouri law for a wrongful death can bring your family financial stability and a sense of closure.

The force of a crash – particularly a rear-end collision – can cause major harm to the intricate structures of the neck. Whiplash often has lasting consequences for injured people. Our lawyers can help you seek the money you deserve for your whiplash injury.

Despite their popular reputation as friendly pets, dogs are capable of attacking and injuring people – particularly small children. Sansone & Lauber represents dog bite victims in claims against dog owners’ insurance companies.
