For more than 30 years, a substantial part of our practice at Brandenburg Law Offices has been representing individuals involved in automobile, truck and motorcycle accidents. We’ve counseled individuals who’ve sustained all types of serious injuries, from soft tissue neck and back injury, to traumatic brain injury (TBI) and paralysis.
Most cases involve issues of negligence in which the negligence of the other driver caused the accident and an injury to our client. We often are able to resolve these cases with the other driver’s insurance company without filing a lawsuit. Our track record of securing large jury awards gives us considerable leverage in settlement negotiations, ensuring that our injured clients receive just compensation.
Brandenburg Law Offices often handles cases where fault is not readily apparent and requires in-depth, highly specialized analysis to prove your case. Some cases involve defective road and highway design. In a recent case, our client received a $250,000 award against the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission because of the dangerous design of a state highway. Although it’s always an uphill battle when a plaintiff takes on a government sector, Brandenburg Law Offices has achieved consistently excellent results for our clients.
There are also cases in which an injury occurs or is greatly aggravated because of the defective design of the vehicle. These are called crashworthiness cases. Although auto manufacturers vigorously defend these types of cases, we have secured substantial awards for our clients in a number of crashworthiness cases.
We have obtained very substantial recoveries for clients in cases against trucking companies. These cases often require detailed knowledge of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rules and regulations and thorough analysis of trucking company records to uncover violations by the driver or the trucking company. Large interstate trucking companies are highly motivated to defend accident cases. Nevertheless, in a recent case involving these issues, Brandenburg Law Offices achieved a $1,500,000 settlement for a client involved in a highway accident with an over-the-road truck.
Brandenburg Law Offices handles auto, truck and motorcycle cases on a contingency fee basis, so there is no charge for attorney services unless we obtain a recovery for you. We also advance all expenses so you don’t have any out-of-pocket costs.
