Knowledgeable advisers detail the elements of Missouri tort cases

For a plaintiff to obtain a financial recovery, a tort action must establish the following:

  • Duty — A tort case is valid only if the defendant had an established duty to act in a certain way. These determinations can be made based on the law, contractual obligations and professional standards.
  • Breach — It must be shown that the defendant failed to perform their duty.
  • Causation — A plaintiff is required to demonstrate that the defendant’s breach of duty caused the plaintiff to suffer an injury or loss of some kind.
  • Damages — Our firm has a full comprehension of the damage awards associated with specific torts and can give you an informed assessment of possible liability.

We will evaluate your situation and work to collect the evidence necessary to prove or disprove the required elements of the specific tort at issue.

Firm offers skilled advocacy for negligence, defamation and fraud claims

Our lawyers are experienced at handling a wide range of tort cases, including those predicated on allegations of:

  • Negligence — When careless conduct results in harm, such as a personal injury or wrongful death, the actor is said to be negligent and may be held liable for damages.
  • Defamation — Defamation occurs when a false statement about an identifiable person or business is published, resulting in damage to reputation. Publication means making such a false statement to any third party.
  • Business fraud —Consumer advertising and unfair practices laws may allow damage recovery when businesses make fraudulent, harmful claims about their products or services.
  • Breach of fiduciary duty — Breach of fiduciary duty occurs when those entrusted with acting in the interests of others party betray that trust, causing harm. An example is where a corporate board fails to make decisions in the best interests of its shareholders.
  • Tortious interference — Intentional meddling without justification in a business relationship or expectancy may result in damage to a party.
  • Property damage — Under tort law, property owners can seek compensation for damage to their property.

Our tort lawyers are trustworthy negotiators at the bargaining table, but if a favorable settlement cannot be reached and a case must go to court, you can be sure we will litigate assertively.
