With auto insurance companies facing financial pressures from a stagnant economy, Attorney Doug Horn is hard at work in helping injured people in Missouri recover fair and full insurance settlements for medical and rehabilitation treatment, lost income, pain, suffering, discomfort, and a variety of other personal losses.
In talking about his daily work representing personal injury victims Horn commented, â€œA car accident can be devastating. Not only are you hurt, youâ€™re out of work and facing a difficult insurance company. Now, more than ever, it is important you have the best possible representationâ€.
Horn, who has handled thousands of car accident cases over a 25 year career, also knows how difficult it can be for a person who has had a claim for personal injury. Although Missouri law permits an injured person recover for a variety of past, present, and future effects from their injuries, insurance company adjusters and their attorneyâ€™s battle hard to keep claim settlements low. â€œWhile there are cases that can be fairly resolved without legal help, these cases are few and far between, especially if the injured person requires medical treatmentâ€, Horn said
In 2015, over 80% of Hornâ€™s cases involved persons injured in auto, truck, and motorcycle accidents. While many of these cases involve neck, back, and spinal injuries, Horn said a considerable amount of his cases involve head trauma, bone fractures, joint injuries, and serious wounds requiring plastic surgery.
