Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers
Dedicated Representation for Injury Victims & Families
Personal injury law is our business. Its all we do. Our lawyers, support staff, and experts are all part of the mission of Schultz & Myers law firm, to make the future a safer place for us and our children. We fight negligent persons and corporations in court each day in the hopes that change will happen. We hope our efforts will compel trucking companies to hire safer truck drivers, pharmaceutical companies to design a safer drug, business owners to maintain a safer store, bars to know when to cut off a visibly intoxicated customer, insurance companies to care less about profits and more about injured victims, and so on. If we don't take a stand, who will?
We are aggressive and dedicated personal injury lawyers representing clients throughout Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas. However, our reach goes well beyond those borders and into federal courts throughout the country. Our lawyers are highly skilled in courtroom litigation and our results are often published in local newspapers and legal periodicals throughout the tri-state area. Our founding partners are members of some of the most elite legal organizations in the country, where membership is limited to the top 1% of trial lawyers.
Our firm uses some of the most technologically advanced hardware and software available in the legal industry. From animated accident reconstruction to surgical videos, our firm presents evidence in a way that jurors can understand. Our goal in trial is to assist the jury by putting them in our client's shoes. The judge may not let us admit that YES, THERE IS ALWAYS INSURANCE that will pay the verdict, but at least we can explain all the ways our client was harmed by the negligent or reckless conduct of the defendant. Most jurors are unaware that their is in fact always insurance that will cover a jury verdict for an injured plaintiff.
The Cases We Handle
We have extensive experience in just about every type of injury case imaginable. The lawyers at Schultz & Myers are highly trained legal advocates, respected by other lawyers across the country, so much so that other lawyers look to our firm to assist them in complex injury litigation. With well over $30 million dollars in settlements and verdicts obtained solely in injury claims, our lawyers are skilled in settlement negotiations and trial advocacy.
When you are injured at work, it is important you receive the workers compensation you need to heal and survive during the duration of your recovery. We also have handled a variety of cases involving accidents:
tractor trailer accidents,
auto accidents and
DUI accidents. Worst of all, when your loved one passed away as a result of a person or company's negligence, we can help you file a
wrongful death claim.
We support the community and charities!
Schultz & Myers are generous supporters of many charitable organizations. Our lawyers donate resources and time to assist the underprivileged and those afflicted with life-threatening diseases. Stephen Schultz first began offering free legal representation at Washington University School of Law in St. Louis, where he protected battered women and was a guardian ad litem for abused children.
We realize that as lawyers, we are in a position to effectuate change. We are privileged enough to have the ability to make donations that contribute to finding cures for some of our nation's most devastating ailments, including multiple sclerosis. We support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Foundation for Children with Cancer, and St. Judes Research Hospital. Our main focus is assisting children with needs...because similar to injury victims, their voice is rarely heard without special attention.
We want to help!
A jury is the voice of the community. It is important for jurors to know that the verdicts they approve can have substantial impact on community safety. Take for instance the rural community that sees 18 wheeler tractor-trailers speed excessively through its 2-lane highway. Eventually an accident takes place and someone is seriously injured or killed. Our lawyers ask the jury to render a verdict on behalf of our injured client. The jury agrees and says "enough is enough," we are not going to tolerate large trucks speeding through our town and endangering our community! I can assure you that news of a substantial verdict for our plaintiff will spread through the commercial trucking industry and drivers will be strictly instructed to slow down, otherwise face an upset jury that will make them pay!
Verdicts for injured plaintiffs do result in a safer community. Insurance companies, trucking companies, manufacturing companies, and reckless drivers are sent a clear message with news of a verdict that fairly compensates an innocent injury victim. Hitting them where it hurts, in the pocketbook, does effectuate change. While it is true that at least half of our cases will settle prior to trial, our lawyers prepare each and every case as if it will eventually get to the jury. However, we must take some cases to trial to give the local community a chance to voice their opinion in the form of a verdict, and perhaps cause changes that will make the community a safer place.
