Benefits of Hiring a St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer

A serious injury can have a forceful and devastating impact on a victim and his or her family. Personal injuries are both stressful and overwhelming. Because we recognize how devastating the aftermath of an accident can be for those involved, we fight for the rights of the victim of an accident and work to restore all financial losses incurred as a result of the accident. Victims have a right financial compensation, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering endured. At TorHoerman Law, we will deal with the legal process while you concentrate on healing from your injuries.


When Should I Hire an Injury Lawyer?

If you have suffered injuries, serious emotional distress, property damage, or other financial loss as a result of an accident or injury that was at partially to blame on another person or party, you should consider hiring a St. Louis personal injury lawyer.

The Missouri state statute of limitations limits the amount of time that you have to take legal action after an accident or injury has occurred, so do not hesitate to take the initial step and contact a St Louis personal injury lawyer. Get a free, no-obligation consultation and decide whether legal action is the best option for you


Should I just file an insurance claim?

 While you can seek financial compensation through your insurance or the liable party’s insurance, insurers generally undervalue the total current and future losses of the victim.

A St Louis personal injury lawyer can work on your behalf to arbitrate the highest payout from the insurance providers. If they are unable to get the amount of compensation that you deem necessary, your injury attorney will use the legal system to gain you the necessary financial compensation to cover all the costs associated with your injury accident.


How Much Does a St Louis Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

Hiring a lawyer to help with your case comes at a cost. Attorneys are generally either paid hourly, on retainer, with a flat fee or paid under a contingency fee arrangement. It is important you understand the difference.

TorHoerman Law offers a contingency fee arrangement only when we believe we can win. There are many reasons for operating on a contingency fee basis, but the most important are:

  1. Clients can rest assured they will not owe anything if their case is not won which is a relief for many when faced with other expenses related to their injuries.
  2. Contingency fee arrangements allow for everyone to have access to a lawyer. You will not be required to pay the large costs upfront.
  3. You will not be required to pay out-of-pocket expenses to receive representation.
  4. Contingency fee agreements encourage your legal team to work hard and diligently for you. If we don’t win, we do not get paid. It is as simple as that.


When working to gain you compensation, we always consider our fees in any demands. This ensures that it is the party at fault for the accident, not you the client, paying for our services.

If we do not win, we will foot the entire bill. We handle the legal fees and there are no fees for our services.


Filing an Injury Lawsuit

If you are considering filing a personal injury lawsuit, there are a few steps that you should take to ensure that you have a strong case. The two most important steps are:

  • Mitigation
  • Hiring a St Louis personal injury lawyer



Mitigation is the process of minimizing the damages that you incur as a result of the accident or injury. In the case that you suffered an injury, should mitigate further injury. If you suffered property damage or other financial losses, you should mitigate further loss.

In order to mitigate further injury, seek medical treatment as soon as possible after your injury or accident. Follow your doctor’s orders and do everything possible, within reason, to make sure your injury does not get worse.

If you suffered property damage or other financial loss, be sure to have all damage assessed. Avoid using any properties that were damaged, unless they are essential. If they are essential properties, such as a car you need to get to work, be sure to have them fixed before using them again after the accident.


Hiring a St Louis Injury Lawyer

Next, you will need to hire an attorney to represent you and your interests.

Be sure to find an attorney who is:

  • Experienced
  • Dedicated to your case
  • Resourced to litigate your case

Ask your potential attorney any questions you deem necessary before making a final decision. You should ask them about:

  • Payment structure

  • Litigation record


The choice of an attorney is an important decision and not one that should be taken lightly.

Client Reviews


TorHoerman Law is an awesome firm to represent anyone that has been involved in a case that someone has stated that it's too difficult to win. The entire firm makes you feel like you’re part of the family, Tor, Eric, Jake, Kristie, Chad, Tyler, Kathy and Steven are the best at what they do.

They helped my elderly uncle receive compensation for the loss of his wife who was administered a dangerous drug. He consulted with this firm because of my personal recommendation and was very pleased with the compassion, attention to detail and response he received. Definitely recommend this firm for their 5 star service.

When I wanted to join the Xarelto class action lawsuit, I chose TorrHoerman Law from a search of a dozen or so law firm websites. I was impressed with the clarity of the information they presented. I gave them a call, and was again impressed, this time with the quality of our interactions.
