There are few things harder for a parent to experience than when their child is severely injured due to the negligence of an individual or a company. As fathers themselves, Stephen Schultz and Josh Myers understand. In fact, the founding partners travel to various Missouri School Districts specifically to teach drivers and kids about bus safety.
In addition to bus accidents, our lawyers represent parents and children when kids are hurt in accidents involving car seats, dangerous toys, defective products, and unkempt premises. Learn more about specific child injuries from our personal injury blogs below.

Dog bites and animal attacks account for more than a third of all homeowners’ insurance liability claims. It is primarily the dog owner’s responsibility to take precautions when their dog is around humans—especially children. Sadly, more than half of all dog bites affect children, and the sheer strength of a dog’s jaw can leave devastating results.
If you or your child has been bitten by a dog, wash the bite immediately if possible, see a doctor, and report the incident to animal control. They will investigate the dog to ensure that the animal has had all of the necessary vaccines and determine whether or not an anti-rabies treatment is necessary. Additionally, call a St. Louis dog bite lawyer at Schultz & Myers so that we can deal with the insurance adjuster.

It’s important to understand that workers’ compensation laws can vary greatly from state to state. Missouri, Illinois, and Arkansas each have a unique set of laws regarding employees who have been injured on the job. While these laws were created to ensure that employees receive fair compensation for their injuries or disabilities, employers have been known to disregard these laws and fail to pay their injured employees what they’re entitled to.
Our workers’ compensation lawyers are available to help you with your work comp claims from the beginning. If you’ve been injured in a construction accident or slip & fall injury on the job, call a St. Louis workers compensation attorney at Schultz & Myers for a free consultation.
Drug Recalls & Medical Malpractice
While many hospitals, nursing homes, and family doctors provide excellent care to their patients, doctors, nurses, and hospital staff have been known to make medical mistakes. Sometimes these mistakes can cause birth defects, serious injury, and even death. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, or a dangerous drug, contact us today.
