We bring impeccable, client-focused service using secure and technologically-advanced industry best practices to every case.

The Hayden Law Firm advocates for clients who have experienced serious injuries, from and including:
Although every accident and every injury is different, many people experience common and serious aftermath – cuts and lacerations, chronic pain, broken bones, depression and anxiety, whiplash, internal injuries, neck and back injuries, soft tissue injuries, scarring, infections, or PTSD. Of course, this is by no means an exhaustive list. Anything that causes you harm and loss is a personal injury.
When choosing a personal injury lawyer in St. Louis, experience in your particular type of case is an essential component to bringing a successful claim. The Hayden Law Firm understands the traumatic, long-lasting impact that a sudden accident or injury can have on a person and their life. We also understand that some cases may have psychological or emotional effects that are not necessarily visible to others, such as the trauma of a sexual assault or other kind of attack. This is why we work with a team of medical and financial experts to ensure your settlement or jury award is just and fair.
How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
You can recover financial damages by either filing a personal injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company, or by filing a personal injury lawsuit against them in court. However, it may be difficult to determine when you have a valid case.
For a successful outcome in a personal injury case, you must meet two essential elements: fault and damages. For example, an individual, company, or employee(s) of a business must commit a wrongful act or fail in their duty to prevent dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence, and thus held liable for your injuries. Also, the accident must meet time restrictions set forth under your state’s statute of limitations, which in Missouri is five years.
If you need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can investigate if you have enough evidence to effectively prove fault and damages.
What is my personal injury case worth?
Your case is about more than financial gain; it’s also about making things right. Personal injury law was designed to fairly compensate an injured individual for losses caused by someone else, and giving the victim a chance to be made whole again. After consulting with an experienced personal injury lawyer, you may be able to hold the appropriate parties accountable for present and future compensation.
These personal injury damages include:
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Past, present, and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental or emotional distress
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
- Property damage
- Rehabilitation and therapy expenses
If you are a family member that has suffered because of a loved one’s injury or death, you may be entitled to compensation for the expenses that resulted, such as loss of consortium, loss of companionship, loss of benefits, mental anguish, and funeral expenses.
The precise amount of recoverable damages will depend upon your specific situation, such as the severity of your injuries and how the accident affected (and continues to affect) your day-to-day life.
