By Personal Injury Trial Attorney on August 9, 2017

A new report released by the National Safety Council puts Missouri dead last in its “State of Safety” ranking, with an “F” grade.

Missouri does not have a law requiring seat belt usage, does not require ignition interlock devices for first-time alcohol-related offenders, and is only one of three states that does not ban texting and driving.

Delayed symptoms prolong pain after car accidents

By Personal Injury Trial Attorney on December 7, 2016

It was a day you will never forget. You may have started out the door with a list of errands or a briefcase full of reports. Maybe you were taking your children to visit their grandparents or you were meeting your spouse for a romantic dinner. What you didn’t expect was that someone else would total your car and send you to the hospital with serious injuries.
