PERSONAL INJURY AND WRONGFUL DEATH
Personal injury cases can mean any sort of injury or accident that was caused by negligent or even intentional actions of another person or a business. You are eligible for compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and permanent disability. Personal injury cases include auto accidents, slip and fall, or premises liability. Checkett & Pauly offers a free consultation for anyone considering filing a personal injury claim. There is no cost to you to sit down with an experienced attorney and discuss your claim and start an investigation. We will help you preserve all the evidence, keep good records, take photos of the accident scene, and establish the identity of any witnesses. Be sure to call to talk to the attorneys at Checkett & Pauly before speaking with an insurance claims adjuster.
The job of an insurance claims adjuster is to convince those injured and making claims against another person’s insurance company to accept as little money as possible in exchange for not filing a lawsuit. Sometimes, the money people are offered is fair compensation for their injuries and/or inconvenience. But many times it is not. Do not try to make that determination yourself. The experienced attorneys at Checkett & Pauly will help you make those decisions and will work diligently to ensure that you are fairly compensated for someone else’s wrongdoing.
Another unfortunate matter with which the attorneys of Checkett & Pauly can help is a wrongful death. Such an action is brought in a civil lawsuit against a person who is responsible for or can be held liable for a death. Usually, an action for wrongful death is brought by close relatives of the deceased individual. If your loved one has recently died, and you believe it was the result of another person’s wrongdoing—negligent or intentional—call the attorneys at Checkett & Pauly. Actions for wrongful death are governed by the Missouri Revised Statutes, and we are here to assist you in making sure that all requirements to bring such a claim are met and satisfied. The time period following the death of a loved one is hard enough. Allow the attorneys at Checkett & Pauly to help you and your family by scheduling a time to discuss your options.
