Trust and Estate Litigation

Trust & Estate Litigation is a highly technical field involving fiduciary duties, capacity to make or amend a trust or will, prudent investors law, and other areas. There are many reasons that litigation surrounding a will or trust may become necessary:

A trustee is making poor decisions with respect to management of trust assets or refusing to distribute the assets of the trust according to its terms 

A personal representative, administrator, or executor of an estate is failing to faithfully and fully discover all of the assets of the estate and properly administer them according to law or the terms of a final will

A final will, codicil, or trust has been created or amended by an elderly person that did not know what he or she was doing when it was executed

The terms of a trust or final will are amended such that an inequity has been created to those contributing property to the trust

If you have been disinherited or if you believe a trustee, executor of a will, or a personal representative or administrator of an estate is not handling things properly, please give us a call. 

Corn Growers Litigation

If your farm has grown any type of corn other than Syngenta Viptera ® and 

Duracade TM, you may have a claim for the lost value of your crop.

In November 2013, China began rejecting U.S. Corn shipments containing even trace amounts of Syngenta Viptera ® and Duracade TM genetically modified corn. These GMO crops were not approved by China prior to Syngenta releasing the seed for use by U.S. Farmers. Now, the entire U.S. Corn supply has been "contaminated" with these genetically mondified crops through cross-pollination and commingling of corn from different farms during transportation.

As a result, the price of all U.S. corn has suffered. It is estimated that China's rejection of U.S. corn has already cost the industry up to $2.9 Billion in damages. Major litigation is ramping up throughout the country.

Auto Accidents

Car and Truck Accident Lawyers

If you have been injured in a car or trucking accident, the first phone call should be to the police. An accurate report of what happened during the accident is the most important part of a successful recovery. You should also immediately seek medical attention for any injuries you have sustained. Oftentimes in an emergency room environment, pain that is not immediately life-threatening is overlooked. However, that does not mean that you may still be seriously injured that will require medical correction in the future. Try to accurately describe everything you are feeling to the physicians and, if you are still not feeling quite right after you leave, follow up with your general practitioner to assess any conditions that emergency room personnel may have missed. Do not give any statements to insurance adjusters. Hire an attorney to take care of this part of your case. In almost every case, you will not know all of the information about what happened, especially early-on. Making additional statements without getting a chance to see what the police actually wrote in the report, and what the other driver(s) and/or witnesses said to the officers at the scene is almost always a bad idea.

Workers' Compensation Cases--Workplace Accidents and Injuries

Work injury lawyers, workers compensation cases

If you are injured while working for your employer, you will in most cases be entitled to a number of different benefits. You will be entitled to have your medical care and rehabilitative costs paid for, and receive compensation for time off work. Employers are usually very good about providing these benefits to you once you have reported the injury and they determine that it a compensable injury. However, there are other benefits that you will be entitled to in the case of a compensable injury that they usually will not offer to you without taking some additional action of your own. These benefits are known as Temporary Partial Disability, Temporary Total Disability, Permanent Partial Disability, Permanent Total Disability, and Death Benefits. A workers compensation lawyer can be of great benefit to you by ensuring that your receive any of these benefits to which you may be entitled. In addition, a workers compensation attorney will be able to help you get the medical care you need. Employers have the choice of which medical provider to send you to for treatment (the "company doctor"). Unfortunately, the doctors hired by the employers do not always agree that certain injuries were caused by the work-related accident or that as much disability has resulted from the work accident. A workers compensation lawyer will be able to help you get a second opinion and challenge the findings of the "company doctor" and this will help to ensure that you recover everything you deserve. 


Slip or Trip and Fall Cases--Premises Liability

Premises Liability Trip Slip Fall Cases

If you have fallen and suffered an injury, there are many situations in which you may be able to recover from the property owner or its insurance company for your injuries sustained as result of the dangerous condition of the property. A property owner has a duty to maintain the property in manner so as not to create an unreasonable risk of harm to others. This includes taking reasonable measures to remove or adequately warn of slipping and tripping hazards. 

Wrongful Death is a broad practice area that encompasses many other areas of the law. In the olden days, there was no cause of action if the negligence or intentional tort resulted in death. The theory was that the cause of action belonged to the injured person only, and extinguished when that person passed away. Obviously this resulted in extreme injustice where the basis for the tort was also the cause of death. Fortunately, the Missouri Legislature has made it possible for family members to sue for the loss of a family member. Section 537.080, RSMo. states:

Whenever the death of a person results from any act, conduct, occurrence, transaction, or circumstance which, if death had not ensued, would have entitled such person to recover damages in respect thereof, the person or party who, or the corporation which, would have been liable if death had not ensued shall be liable in an action for damages, notwithstanding the death of the person injured, which damages may be sued for....

As a result, family members have the right to pursue many types of cases ranging from auto accidents to premises liability to medical malpractice that result in their loved one's death. There are special procedures that must be followed both in bringing these actions and when distributing the recovery to the family members entitled to the proceeds. Our injury lawyers are experienced with these procedures and can help bring a meaningful recovery to you for the loss of your family member.
