If you are injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s wrong-doing or negligence, you need highly qualified attorneys to provide you with sound legal advice.

Wolff & Wolff Trial Lawyers has nearly a century of experience helping clients win a compensation package at court or negotiating a fair settlement. We put our extensive skill sets and resources to work for each client, working diligently to achieve a successful outcome.
Wolff & Wolff Trial Lawyers is a personal injury law firm that’s based in St. Louis, MO. We focus on various areas of personal injury law that include:
Negligent drivers account for thousands of crashes on Missouri and Illinois roadways. Car accident cases often involve:
- Distracted drivers who make errors because they are texting or talking on their cell phones
- Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Failure to yield
- Vehicle defect
Wolff & Wolff Trial Lawyers has successfully managed hundreds of car accident cases. Let us put our experience to work for you in the court room or at the negotiation table.
Truck accidents can be among the most catastrophic on the roadways. The immense weight and cargo of trucks require their drivers to exercise a high degree of caution. Sometimes, however, drivers make errors or even drive recklessly. Cases of truck accidents have involved truckers who drive while fatigued, make illegal lane changes, or fail to break. No matter the nature of the accident, our personal injury attorneys can investigate your claim and provide you with the representation you deserve.
Victims of motorcycle accidents can suffer catastrophic injuries. They aren’t protected by a steel frame or airbags. Yet, even though motorcycle drivers are more vulnerable on the roads, they have the same rights to be on them as other drivers. Often, a car driver will claim that they didn’t see the motorcycle when they collided with it; this is typically a careless mistake. We represent these types of cases and others. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle crash, let us pursue your claim and help you achieve the compensation you deserve.
Bicycle riders have the right to be on Missouri’s roadways; yet, like motorcycle drivers, they are often at increased risk for injury. Bicycle accident cases can involve situations where drivers fail to yield, cut off bicyclists, or even run them off the road. Bicyclists can suffer devastating injuries when they collide with motor vehicles. Our experienced attorneys will aggressively pursue compensation for victims of these catastrophic accidents.
Missouri might be a landlocked state, but its rivers and lakes have been the site of boat accidents that involve serious injuries and even loss of life. Victims of these accidents have the right to seek compensation if their injuries are the fault of another. If you allow us to represent you, we will diligently represent your interests at court or during negotiations.
If you’ve lost a spouse or close family member due to the wrongful actions of another, you may file a wrongful death suit. Compensation can certainly never replace a loved one, but it can alleviate financial stress and hold the wrongdoer accountable for their actions. These cases are sensitive and frequently complex. Wrongful deaths can be associated with all types of personal injuries from car accidents to medical malpractice. Contact us to discuss your claim.
Getting hurt while on the job often turns into a complicated legal process. Many injured parties are left unable to work. It’s not uncommon for insurance companies to dispute these claims. That’s why clients need a competent and experienced attorney. If your ability to work is compromised indefinitely, you most certainly need an attorney to protect your rights.
Most healthcare providers do their best to provide patients with high-quality care. Yet, medical caregivers do make errors or act negligently while on the job. These errors can result in serious injury for patients. Healthcare providers can be liable for patients’ injuries when they have deviated from their required standard of care. Operating on the wrong limb, making anesthesia errors, or misdiagnosing a health condition are some examples of medical malpractice. If you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice, we can help.
During child birth, injuries can occur naturally. Sometimes, however, doctors may ignore signs and fail to take an approach that could prevent injuries or birthing complications. Sometimes these injuries can result in lifelong disabilities. These cases are always fraught with emotion. Clients deserve caring service and legal advice based on experience. Let us guide you through this most difficult of times.
If a doctor or insurance company violates a patient’s rights as outlined under HIPAA, they can face sanctions and may have to pay a fine. If a doctor or insurer has violated your rights, you can file a claim and seek compensation. Not sure if you have a valid claim? Bring it to us and let us evaluate your case.
Have you been injured on someone else’s property? Slip and fall or trip and fall cases are common. Sometimes they are innocent accidents, but sometimes they occur because there’s a crack in step or an unmarked wet floor. Property owners have a responsibility to ensure that their setting is reasonably safe. Talk to us if you’ve been injured in a slip and fall injury and need a premises liability attorney.
Dog Bites and Attacks
Missouri has a strict liability rule regarding dog bites and attacks. According to the state’s statute’s, the dog’s owner is liable even if they did not know their dog would behave aggressively. If you’ve been injured or attacked by a dog, you have a right to seek compensation or your injuries. Dog bites should be reported. Contact us and let us provide you with our experienced legal advice.
Claims involving sports injuries can be challenging to, but our attorneys will carefully examine your case to provide you with our legal opinion of the matter. A type of sports injury might involve a coach sending a player back into the game after they got hurt on the field or court. They might have suffered a concussion or internal bleeding or some other condition that would require medical care and removal from the gameplay.
Serious injuries can change the course of an individual’s life. Not only do clients suffer physically, but also emotionally and financially. Too often, this suffering is not contained to weeks or even months but years. Some individuals will never recover from their injuries. Others will need ongoing medical care that could include multiple surgeries and physical therapy. These situations can lead to financial ruin not to mention diminished health. That’s why our attorneys fight so diligently to help clients recoup some of the damages they’ve suffered.
