About Our Firm
At Edelman & Muehleisen LLC, we bring more than 50 years of combined experience to the task of representing people in Missouri and Illinois who have been injured. The firm was founded by attorney Steven C. Edelman, and attorney Timothy R. Muehleisen.
Our attorneys have previous experience as defense attorneys and now represent plaintiffs exclusively. We focus primarily on personal injury and wrongful death cases involving accidents, including:
- Auto and truck accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents and other premises liability matters such as dog bites
- Serious injuries such as back injuries and brain injuries
- Workplace injuries and illnesses
Our clients enjoy the benefits of working directly with knowledgeable lawyers. A paralegal in our office helps us keep cases moving forward efficiently and cost-effectively. We often collaborate with private investigators who help us build strong cases with ample detailed evidence such as photos and interviews with eyewitnesses.
Proof Of Negligence, Insurance Coverage And Injury Claims
It is not uncommon for someone injured in an accident to worry, “What can I do since I have no health insurance?” An experienced personal injury attorney on your side can often ensure that you receive the medical treatment you need even before your case is settled.
In most personal injury and wrongful death cases, you are likely to end up dealing with an insurance company representative — often an insurer responsible for covering a negligent party such as another motorist. Obtaining the compensation you need is virtually never as simple as filing a claim and expecting to be paid fairly and promptly. It is common to run up against roadblocks even in the case of straightforward injury claims. Even when negligence is clearly evident, remember that an insurance company representative’s goal is to pay out as little as possible.
We Help The Injured Recover Fair Compensation
While you are still recovering from a back injury, a head injury or any other types of injuries, the last thing you want is a big insurance company taking advantage of your vulnerability and lack of experience in insurance matters. Our personal injury lawyers have previous experience as defense attorneys. We are well-poised to anticipate challenges and respond effectively.
Experienced And Persistent St. Louis Accident Lawyers
We work closely with treating doctors and referred doctors to examine the nature of the injury as we aim to fully document all losses and injuries in each case. Our law firm keeps in close communication with our clients’ treating physicians as we construct compelling arguments in our clients’ favor. When appropriate, we consult with other experts such as plastic surgeons who render opinions regarding probable future surgeries that dog bite victims may require or neuropsychologists who can explain the types of therapies that will be useful for head injury victims.
