Our Commitment To You
Injury Lawyers With A Reputation
You Can Trust
We care about our clients and their needs. Being injured and out of work is very stressful on a family. It can be overwhelming at times. Having been involved with thousands of injury victims over the years, we know this all too well. We offer patience and understanding during these trying times. We work to relieve you of the burdens associated with your claim, and provide results for you as quickly as we can
Secure appropriate medical care:
Medical care is expensive. Frequently employers and insurance companies try to save money by refusing to authorize needed medical care. If your injury or workers’ compensation claim has been denied or you are being denied medical treatment, we can help you get the medical care you need.
We’ll fight for your rights every step
of the way:
If the insurance carrier is denying your rights, we will fight them every step of the way to secure the benefits you deserve.
Advise you of your rights and how the
legal system can help:
We take the time to sit down with you and explain how the legal system can help with your specific problem, what benefits it has to offer, and give you some basic time lines that you can expect for your claim. If you already have a settlement offer, we’ll go over it with you and tell you whether we think it is fair and whether we can do better for you. If not, we’ll tell you so – up-front and at no charge..
Get your medical bills paid:
Employers and insurance companies don’t care about your credit rating. Many times they refuse to pay for medical treatment you already received. We can keep the collection agencies off your back and get those bills taken care of, usually without any harm at all to your credit rating.

I had to fire my St. Louis lawyer because he couldn’t get the job done. The coal company was fighting me every step of the way. They tried to stop my medical treatment. They tried to cut off my benefits. Steve was there to fight the company all the way through a final hearing and the company was ordered to pay me for life. I couldn’t be happier with the result
Steve E -March 29, 2018

We appreciate what you and your staff done to help getting his bills paid. Words cant’t explain the feelings for all the time you took in helping us. If we know of someone who needs a lawyer. We will be happy to give them your name.
“Considering a cash settlement wasn’t my priority on my first visit to you, this number you have earned for me is so far beyond any expectations. I’m Humb.
“I was thinking about this the other day. Words can’t express how much I want to thank you for what you have done. It isn’t about the money it is about the ethics of what the insurance company and my previous lawyer did. This shouldn’t have happened and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Mr. McGovern is commended for a high level of advocacy. He presented key evidence at the initial and supplemental hearings. He gathered additional financial records and prepared a detailed affidavit. He conducted extensive research and set forth a detailed yet brief and compelling, highly persuasive, written analysis of the facts and law.
