Recovering damages by holding negligent parties accountable for your injuries
A sudden injury, whether through a car accident, a slip and fall, or unsafe conditions at a work site, can affect you greatly now and in the future. Combs Law Group LLC is committed to easing the harm you’ve suffered because of someone else’s negligence. To obtain a full recovery, you need a skilled St. Louis personal injury lawyer who can be trusted to investigate every potential contributor to your injury. Attorney Christopher Combs is motivated to hold each responsible party accountable so that his clients are properly compensated for their suffering. We offer a free initial consultation, so if you have questions about whether you might be entitled to an award at trial or a settlement, we will discuss your circumstances at no expense and with no risk to you.
Assisting with litigation arising from motor vehicle accidents
An auto accident can be devastating both physically and emotionally. At Combs Law Office, we understand the impact that accident injuries have on your ability to work and support your family. Whether we are able to reach a fair settlement in your case or need to fight for your right to damages at trial, we are committed to ensuring you understand the pertinent factors involved in your lawsuit, including the following:
- Statute of limitations — You have five years from the date of an accident to file a lawsuit. Evidence disappears and witnesses tend to forget details over time, so if you have been in a collision, it’s best to contact a qualified attorney as soon as possible.
- Insurance responsibility — In most cases, an injured person can file an insurance claim with their carrier or the carrier of the driver at fault. Insurance companies, however, will try to offer you as little as possible in a settlement, which is why it’s in your best interest to retain an experienced personal injury lawyer to fight for a full and fair damage amount.
- Comparative fault — If a jury determines that more than one party bears responsibility for the accident, the percentage of fault that you bear is subtracted from the damages you incurred.
We will spend the time necessary to evaluate your case and will zealously pursue fair compensation once we determine you are eligible to make a claim.
Investigating construction site injuries to find responsible parties
Properties where construction occurs are inherently dangerous due to the equipment being used, the debris on site, and the number of workers shuttling in and out of the area. If you’ve been hurt on a construction site, we can work to find exactly what negligence led to the incident and which people or companies are responsible. From there, we will aggressively pursue an award at trial or a just settlement.
Working to obtain justice for those hurt in slip and fall incidents
If you’ve been hurt in a fall, there are many factors that could be completely or partially to blame. Combs Law Office will investigate each possibility to determine if an action can be brought against a responsible actor. Even if you were partly to blame for the accident, Missouri’s comparative fault law allows recovery based on the percentage of blame accorded to each party.
Reviewing truck accidents to identify violations of driving standards
Commercial trucks can cause tremendous damage to other vehicles and pedestrians in collisions. Accordingly, federal law places restrictions on truck drivers when operating their vehicles, such as not driving over a certain number of hours and taking adequate rest periods. If you’ve been hurt in a crash involving a commercial truck, we will review each detail to determine if liability exists against the driver, the trucking company, or another party such as a tire or auto parts manufacturer.
Helping families to recover monetary damages from a wrongful death
When a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s actions or conduct — whether through intentional, reckless or negligent acts — a claim for damages can be brought by the victim’s family. If someone else was responsible for your loved one’s death, Combs Law Office can bring an action for lost wages, final expenses, medical bills and pain suffered before the victim passed away.
