Personal Injury Lawyer Jefferson County
Michele Kaido Schwent is a personal injury lawyer in Jefferson County Missouri who is always looking out for her client’s best legal interests. She is committed to helping her clients find practical solutions to their on-going, personal injury legal issues.
Personal injury claims arise in various ways in the State of Missouri and often result from an accident of one type or another.
Personal injury victims who have sustained a bodily injury from an accident or other means often have the right to compensation for pain and suffering as well as reimbursement for their out of pocket expenses (such as hospital and doctor bills) and loss (such as losing a vehicle and loss of income) etc.
Regardless of the type of injury you suffer, you will be combating an insurance company, your employer, or another attorney. They will make many moves that are confusing, and they will do whatever it takes to prevent you from recovering financial compensation for your injuries. Therefore, it’s extremely important to have experienced legal assistance from someone who understands how personal injury law and the legal system works so that you are not being taken advantage of.
Along with the pain and suffering it’s common for medical costs can add up quickly and will turn your life upside down. Schwent Law Firm knows how to handle your case in a way that is best for you and your family.
In most personal injury cases, you must be able to prove two elements, that the other person acted negligently and that their negligence caused your injuries. Our firm will be able to assist you in this process.
The injury may also be due to the negligence of others in many areas including:
- All road and highway accidents including car, semi-truck & motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Defective or dangerous products
- Dangerous property (premises liability)
- Medical malpractice (doctor, hospital, or nursing home malpractice)
- Wrongful death
- Nursing home abuse
- Dog bites
If you were injured while at work, you have a Workman’s Compensation Claim. In work-related injuries, the law requires that you prove that you were injured, but does not require you to prove that your employer was negligent.
To help ensure your legal concerns are properly addressed:
- We thoroughly examine the circumstances of your injury to uncover causes and discover where liability rests.
- We confront employers and insurers on your behalf to activate any immediate benefits you may be entitled to.
- We work with medical, economic, and life care experts to determine your future medical and living expenses.
