WELCOME TO SUMNER LAW GROUP
Sumner Law Group is a Midwest personal injury law firm dedicated to serving families located all across Missouri, including Cape Girardeau and Illinois that have been injured by the negligence of others. The St. Louis car accident attorneys of Sumner Law Group are experienced personal injury attorneys that are licensed in Missouri and Illinois. We have fought and won millions of dollars for our clients, at no up front cost to them. We are focused on serious injury cases including tractor trailer accidents, wrongful death, drunk driving accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents and pedestrians hit by motor vehicles. Even though we deal with multiple million dollar cases everyday, our focus is to help anyone who has been hurt in a car accident. We have offices in Kansas City, Columbia and St. Louis to better serve and protect families injured in Missouri by negligent drivers and negligent companies.
At Sumner Law Group, we strive to provide consistently excellent legal representation to injured people and their families. As personal injury lawyers, our job is to make things right for our clients to the extent the law allows. As your St. Louis personal injury attorneys, we can assist you if:
- You have been injured in an car, motorcycle, drunk driving or big truck accident
- A family member of yours has been killed by defective industrial machinery or dangerous construction equipment
- You have been permanently disabled due to an accident at work
- You or a family member has been the victim of medical malpractice or nursing home neglect
- You or a loved one has been the victim of sexual abuse
- You or a loved one was hurt on someone else’s property
- You or a loved one was injured because of a dangerous product
- You or a loved one has been injured or killed in a recreational activity
Insurance companies and the corporations, businesses and professionals they insure, pay for their mistakes only when they have to — and then only enough to avoid the risk of losing more at trial. The more risk defendants perceive, the more compensation responsible parties will pay to you and your family. That is where we come in.
At Sumner Law Group, our St. Louis personal injury attorneys know how to package cases for settlement and how to present cases at trial to achieve the best results for our clients. We have favorably resolved hundreds of claims. And since we only represent plaintiffs for fees that are dependent on the outcome, the better we do for you, the better we do for ourselves. But the contingent fee system also requires that we be selective in the cases they handle. No one benefits from frivolous litigation — not you, not us and certainly not the legal system.
We may decline a case, but if we do we will tell our prospective client exactly why. Sometimes it may be because the law does not support a claim; other times we may refer people to different attorneys for a variety of reasons; sometimes we may even suggest that you handle the matter yourself. But in any case involving complicated facts, serious injuries or difficult legal issues, the result of which could adversely impact you or your family, you should hire an attorney who represents plaintiffs, only plaintiffs, and does it full time.
Be careful of television advertisers who work on volume by promising you the world but hand off your case if they cannot quickly and easily settle it. Our goal is the opposite: to represent fewer clients with better cases so we can devote more attention to you and your claim. Also, be aware of firms that claim to handle personal injury cases, as well as many other legal matters, without any detailed information about the lawyers’ credentials and experience. The Sumner Law Group St. Louis personal injury lawyers have more than 40 years of combined experience representing victims of the negligence of others. Before you hire any attorney or law firm check them out carefully, not only through word of mouth, but also through their website and any information you obtain from it.
Know The Difference
The difference between a soft tissue injury or a herniated disk can be tens of thousands of dollars. The difference between temporary inability to work and permanent disability can be hundreds of thousands of dollars. The difference between trial of a well-prepared paraplegia or quadriplegia case and one that is settled without adequate investigation can be millions of dollars. These differences often depend on the attorney.
Not that money is the only object — peace of mind that comes with knowing that you have someone representing you, looking out for your family, and fighting for your legal rights is sometimes the best reason to hire a lawyer. We hope you will consider Sumner Law Group but whatever you do, consult an attorney. The initial consult is free and often helpful, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Those who do not know their legal rights risk losing them.
