Personal Injury + Wrongful Death

Other Practice Areas

An injury can be life-changing. The death of a loved one is devastating for other family members. Making these matters worse is the senseless cause of the injury or death. The people or companies that cause the injuries or death more often than not carry insurance. The last thing you or your family want to or should deal with are insurance adjusters. You should not talk to an insurance company without consulting a lawyer. Let Pleban & Petruska, St. Louis personal injury attorneys, help you as your personal injury lawyer. Our firm helps individuals with all aspects of these claims from insurance adjusters through trial. Our aggressive strategies have helped individuals and families obtain millions in damages and decades of results.

Car and Truck Accidents

Car and truck accidents occur daily and out of nowhere. If you are hit by a driver that carries insurance, you will likely be contacted by an adjuster within days. Talking to that adjuster can negatively impact your claim. You should talk to an attorney first.

Underinsured and Uninsured Coverage

An individual hit by a driver that does not carry insurance is eligible for uninsured coverage from his/her own insurance carrier. If you are hit by a driver that did not have enough insurance coverage to cover your damages you might be eligible for underinsured coverage from your carrier. Insurance companies are required to provide uninsured motorist coverage. You should make sure you have under-insured motorist coverage before you hit the road.

Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice results in death or injury due to a healthcare provider’s negligence. This negligence, at times, can be difficult to see without a careful review of the facts and records.

Nursing Home Abuse, Neglect and Malpractice

Nursing homes are given a significant amount of trust when caring for one’s family and loved ones. Unfortunately, that trust is often broken resulting in injury to a loved one. Abuse and neglect should never result in injury to someone you love. If it does, give us a call.

Vaccine Injuries

Vaccine injuries occur because of either the vaccine or the negligent administration of it. Placing the needle too high on an individual’s arm can have drastic consequences to include the potential need for surgery. Most people don’t realize that a flu shot given a couple of inches too high can cause one to later need shoulder surgery. These are called SIRVA (Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration) injuries and happen more often than the public realizes. You can also experience different injuries, such as Guillan-Barre Syndrome due to a bad batch of a drug. Both SIRVA and bad batch drug injuries are pursued through the US Federal Court of Claims.
