Claims Lawyers in St. Louis
Dixon's St. Louis claims lawyers are here to help.
Committed To Helping Victims of All Types
Our primary focus is on representing clients that have been physically injured, but we recognize that injuries come in many forms. So we also consider other claims & practice areas. For example, sometimes we see cases where one person signs a contract to sell his business to another person and the other person backs out, causing huge financial losses to the seller. Such a loss could cause health issues, such as psychological trauma. That psychological pain can later manifest itself in physical symptoms, like ulcers for example. We are willing to represent clients on a lawsuit based on failed contracts, whether there is a viable physical injury claim or not. This draws on our core skills developed over years of injury litigation.
We Also Help Whistleblowers
We also will, on occasion, help people that have never been injured at all. Given our work on injuries, we have become experts in the field of health care law. Many healthcare programs allow the public to file complaints against a company that is defrauding the government. The U.S. Department of Justice may choose to take on a lawsuit based on the complaint filed by a private citizen. Complaints are most often filed by a whistleblower from within the company committing the fraud. If the DOJ wins the case, the whistleblower that filed the complaint will usually be given a portion of the recovered funds. In 2016, the DOJ recovered over $4.7 billion. The majority of these claims were started by whistleblowers, and the government awarded $519 million to those whistleblowers. This is a win-win for the whistleblower and the public.
