A personal injury attorney can help you if you have been injured through the actions or negligence of another or because of a defective product. This field covers a broad range of cases, from traffic accidents to medical malpractice, from dog bites to class action suits. Many people are not aware that the injury doesn't have to be physical. Sexual advances from a therapist, for instance, would fall under medical malpractice even if you were never touched.

Finding the personal injury attorney who can best represent you takes a bit of research. You'll want to retain an attorney who specializes in the particular type of case you are pursuing. Lawyers, like doctors, have areas of expertise, so you should search for one who has extensive experience in, for example, cases involving defective tires, just as you would search for a surgeon who specializes in vascular surgery.

The Missouri Bar Association Directory

The Missouri Bar Association maintains a directory of all attorneys in good standing throughout the state. Since not all attorneys are in private practice or are able to take on new clients, they also maintain a list of those who are currently available. The list can be searched by both geographical area and areas of expertise. This is an invaluable resource for Missouri citizens.

If you are unable to afford a lawyer to further your personal injury suit, contact the Legal Aid Office in your area. They are committed to providing legal assistance to individuals with low incomes, and have qualified and dedicated attorneys on their staff. There are main offices in St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbia and Springfield, and satellite offices in many other cities.
