The Truth About Personal Injury Cases

Insurance companies and the businesses, professionals, and people 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 thousands of complex personal injury 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.

The contingent fee system also requires that we be selective in the cases we 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, 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 then 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.

When Should You Contact Us?

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 a car, motorcycle, drunk driving or big truck accident.
  • A family member 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.

Do not wait to seek legal advice after a serious accident. The sooner we can evaluate your case, the sooner we can begin preserving evidence and crafting a strong claim for full compensation.

When Winning Means Everything,
Know the Difference a Great Lawyer Can Make


The difference between a soft-tissue injury and a herniated disc 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 going to trial with 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, LLC, but whatever you do, consult an attorney. The initial consultation with our team is free and helpful, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Those who do not know their legal rights risk losing them. Protect yours today.
