Will you get a fair personal injury settlement offer from the defendant? Learn how to know if you should take the offer you get in this post.
Did you know the world’s largest lawsuit was just filed?

Anton Purisima, 62, is suing a long list of defendants, including the City of New York and LaGuardia Airport, for what started with a dog biting his middle finger and evolved into a slew of other civil rights violations.

Guess how much he wants?

Two undecillion dollars. That’s a 2 with 36 zeros after it. It’s currently more money than exists on the entire planet!

Missouri law lets you recover money for your injuries, even if you are partially at fault. Learn how you can identify if you have a valid personal injury claim.
Personal injury cases can arise from any number of scenarios. You’re probably most familiar with slip and falls, car accidents, medical malpractice, work injuries, and product liability cases (improperly manufactured/designed cars, for example).

If you experience an injury – and you feel it’s not your fault or only partially your fault – how do you know if you have a case that could entitle you to damages?
