Do Not Leave Money On The Table In Your Personal Injury Case

Do Not Leave Money On The Table In Your Personal Injury Case

Video transcript —

Hi, thanks for visiting us at Cantor and Associate. I want to talk to you about not leaving any money on the table. If you have an injury, let me go through a fact scenario. You might have more than one case.

So let's say you are driving for your employer and you get t-boned by a drunk driver and you are terribly injured. What is your case? Well first, you have a car accident case - a civil claim against the person that hit you. But what if I told you that the person who t-boned you doesn't have insurance? So then what do you have? You have an uninsured motorist claim. But you were also working at the time, so you have a workers' compensation claim.

There is an order to operations. You must resolve your workers' compensation claim first because of a concept called subrogation. I have other videos and I have written a guide called Missouri Workers' Compensation Subrogation. If you settle your civil case first, it acts as a credit - meaning that you won't be owed any money in workers' compensation.

So I have just said a lot, but what you need to know is that you have been injured in an accident. How do you maximize your recovery? You go to an attorney and to a law firm that knows how to handle these types of cases. You must get it all right; there is no room for mistakes, in order to maximize your recovery.

At Cantor and Associate, personal injury litigation is all that we do. Gary and I have been doing this together for 15 years. I don't want to break my arm patting myself on the back, but we are good at it. We know what we are doing. We don't have to pick up a book and study and research how we proceed in your case because that is what we do. We know, we get calls routinely from other lawyers asking "what do I do about this?" We get other lawyers that send us cases all of the time.

Today, I was asked to be an expert in a case where a person was injured at work and was fired. That is illegal. That is retaliatory discharge. So they started asking me questions about it and I started telling them what to do and they asked me "will you be an expert on the law?" I said "certainly, I'd be happy to help." It disgusts me when an employer fires someone for validly pursuing their rights under the law, whether it is in Missouri or Illinois. So at Cantor and Associate, we handle these cases. We handle car accident cases, we handle workers' compensation claims, we handle medical malpractice cases, retaliatory discharge cases, and dog attacks. We handle personal injury - it is what we do.

If you need help, we can help you. Please call (314) 542-9999. Thanks for watching.
