Stages of a Personal Injury Case

  1. Meeting with an attorney from Krupp Law Firm (James Krupp / Ryan Krupp)
    • The first step after hiring Krupp Law Firm is to begin the paperwork, notify the other party, and get the ball rolling with court requirements.
  2. Building the case

    In order to build a strong case for a personal injury claim, it is extremely important to gather as much evidence as possible and to act quickly to preserve it. Evidence can be lost or tampered with almost immediately. Most importantly seek medical attention immediately after the accident. This will not only ensure that your injuries are properly documented, but it will also help to preserve evidence that can be used to support your claim. This evidence may include

    • medical records,
    • witness statements,
    • photographs of the accident scene and your injuries,
    • and any other relevant documents such as police reports or repair bills.

    We know how to effectively investigate and build a case to maximize your chances of success. Krupp Law Firm lawyers will also be able to advise you on what types of evidence will be most helpful in your specific case. Hiring a local St. Louis personal injury attorney familiar with Missouri laws will also give you an advantage, as they will understand the nuances of personal injury law in the state.

  3. Your lawyer considers making demands and negotiating

    Once Krupp Law Firm has thoroughly investigated your case and gathered all relevant evidence, we will consider making demands on the defendant or the defendant's insurance company. These demands will typically outline the compensation you are seeking for your injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.

    We will use the evidence gathered to support the demands and negotiate on your behalf to try to reach a settlement. It is important to have experienced lawyers by your side to ensure that your demands are reasonable and supported by the evidence, and to negotiate the settlement you deserve. If a settlement cannot be reached, we will advise you on your options, which may include proceeding to trial.

  4. A lawsuit is filed: initial court papers.

    If a settlement cannot be reached in a personal injury case, we may advise you to file a lawsuit in court. This process begins with the preparation and filing of initial court papers, also known as a complaint.

    The complaint is a document that outlines your legal claims against the defendant and the damages you are seeking. It is important to work with our personal injury lawyers who can ensure that your complaint is properly drafted and includes all necessary information.

    Once the complaint is filed, it will be served to the defendant, who will then have an opportunity to respond with their own court papers, known as an answer. The lawsuit will then proceed through the legal process, which may include discovery, pre-trial motions, and ultimately a trial.

  5. Fact-finding and Discovery.
    • Discovery consists of 4 separate parts. Interrogatories, Requests for production, requests for admission and depositions.
      1. Interrogatories are written questions Krupp Law Firm will send to the opposing party.
      2. Request for production is a written request for documents from the other attorney for inspection. This could be medical records, police reports, photographs of the scene of the accident, receipts, or records of repair among many others.
      3. Request for admission is a factual statement served to the other lawyer who must admit, deny or object.
      4. Deposition is an out-of-court testimony. We can request testimony from the other party, witnesses, or expert witnesses among others. This is important for corroborating or disputing testimony during the trial.
  6. Resolution before trial

    In many personal injury cases in St. Louis, a resolution is reached before the case goes to trial. This can happen through a settlement, which is an agreement between the parties to resolve the case without the need for a trial.

    Settlements can be reached at any point during the legal process, including before a lawsuit is even filed. It is often in the parties' best interests to try to reach a settlement, as it can save time and money, and avoid the uncertainty of a trial.

    If a settlement is reached, the parties will typically sign a settlement agreement that outlines the terms of the resolution, including the amount of any damages being paid. It is important to have our experienced personal injury lawyers by your side to negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf and protect your rights.

  7. Settlement.

    Your insurance provider will most likely prefer to pay you to settle your claim for your agreement not to take the lawsuit to court. It saves the insurance a lot of money to not pay lawyers to defend them in court. The benefit to you is to have the case settled quicker and receive payment. A settlement is a compromise between you and the defendant.

  8. Trial

    A trial is the final step in the legal process to resolve a personal injury case in St. Louis. At trial, both sides present their evidence and arguments to a judge or jury, who will then decide the outcome of the case.

    During the trial, your lawyer will present their case, including any witness testimony and exhibits, in an effort to prove that the defendant is liable for the injuries sustained. The defendant's lawyer will then present their case, including any witness testimony and exhibits, in an effort to prove that the defendant is not liable.

    After both sides have presented their cases, the judge or jury will consider the evidence and make a decision on the outcome of the case. It is important to have our expert personal injury attorneys by your side to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.

  9. Collecting money after judgment.

    After you have obtained a judgment in your favor in a personal injury case in St. Louis, the next step is to collect the awarded damages. This process can sometimes be difficult, as the defendant may not have the funds or assets readily available to pay the judgment.

    If the defendant is unwilling or unable to pay the judgment, there are several steps your lawyer can take to help you collect the money you are owed. These may include garnishing the defendant's wages, placing a lien on their property, or seizing their assets. If this happens we can help you navigate the process of collecting money after a judgment is made in your favor.

  10. Appealing a decision or judgment.

    If you are unhappy with a decision or judgment made in your personal injury case you may have the option to appeal the ruling. The appeal process involves asking a higher court to review the decision of the lower court.

    In order to appeal, you must first file a notice of appeal with the court and then submit a written argument, known as a brief, explaining why you believe the lower court's decision was incorrect. It is important to note that the appeal process can be complex and it is recommended to seek the assistance of our lawyers to guide you through the process.

"The Krupp Law Firm was a pleasure to work with. Jim Krupp handled my case as quickly and thoroughly as possible with little involvement from me. I appreciate his honesty, professionalism and experience. Thank you for being there when I needed you."
Ben Stratton
"My experience with the Krupp Law Firm was second to none. There was more focus of my health and my future health needs that I ever expected. The follow up, just to see how I was doing with recovery and physical therapy was appreciated greatly. I was unsure at the beginning, but Jim explained everything in detail as we proceeded and I never felt pressured. I recommend this firm to all my friends and family members."
