Why You Need an Attorney
If you have been involved in an accident where you were seriously injured, it is never wise to try to handle it by yourself. While you could file the necessary paperwork and represent yourself in court, your chance of recovering the full and fair compensation you deserve is much higher when you have the help of an experienced St. Louis personal injury attorney.
Depending on the facts and circumstances of your personal injury case, your attorney will either need to negotiate with the other party’s insurance company for a fair settlement, or seek damages in court if no fair settlement offer is extended.
Severe injuries are often physically and emotionally draining. Allow a skilled attorney to take the burden off your shoulders by handling every aspect of your injury claim. This will enable you to focus on what’s most important: your health and recovery.
A St. Louis personal injury lawyer will be able to level the playing field with the insurance companies by negotiating for the maximum settlement you are entitled to. If your case goes to trial, a skilled trial lawyer will be able to navigate the complex legal procedures as they fight for the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Because filing an injury claim requires advanced legal knowledge and training, you shouldn’t try to pursue a claim without the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer. The attorneys at Onder Law have the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to handle all the complex legal matters that come with a personal injury claim.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
At Onder Law, we get many questions from clients in St. Louis and throughout the country regarding their personal injury claims. Below are several of the most frequently asked questions. If you have further questions about your specific case, feel free to contact our knowledgeable St. Louis personal injury attorneys by calling (314) 963-9000 today.
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in St. Louis?
Every state has what is known as the statute of limitations. This is a certain amount of time to file a personal injury claim. In the state of Missouri, the statute of limitations varies depending on the type of case. It’s important to promptly seek legal counsel because failure to file a claim or lawsuit within the statute of limitations time period could forever bar you from filing suit.
If you are going to file a personal injury claim in Missouri, you must do so within five years, beginning from the date of the injury. There is an exception known as the “discovery rule.” In some cases, the injured person cannot possibly be aware of the injury, and the discovery rule allows for the clock to begin ticking either when the person became aware of their injury or should have become aware of it.
Other than the discovery rule, there are additional ways in which the statute of limitations may be extended. For example, if the defendant left the state after injuring the victim, the statute of limitations clock would stop during that time. Therefore, if the defendant leaves the state for one year, the time limit for your case could be extended for that time period.
What are your attorney’s fees?
At Onder Law, we handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only get paid if we recover financial compensation for you.
I have been injured due to someone else’s fault. Should I document all my medical expenses?
Yes, it’s a good idea to keep complete documentation of all your medical expenses as well as a log of your hours of work missed. Even if you just have to go to a store to buy over-the-counter pain pills, you should record all these costs. This will ensure that you are fully compensated for all of your medical expenses.
