PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION

Our lives can change in an instant, without notice and all because of the careless and negligent acts of another. Another person’s negligence can be a life altering event for you. Your injuries leave you unable to enjoy the pursuits of life with which you had become accustomed; your medical bills will mount wreaking havoc on your family’s budget; because you were unable to work, you have lost wages and perhaps the ability to earn a wage, thus your ability to financially support you and your family has been damaged.

People suffer injuries in a variety of situations, such as:

  • Motor vehicle collisions,
  • Motor cycle collisions,
  • Bike collisions,
  • Semi-tractor trailer collisions,
  • Injuries that occur on the property of others,
  • Healthcare provider negligence,
  • Dog bites and attacks,
  • Assaults,
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect,
  • Workers compensation injuries.

The attorneys at Becker Robinson & Brinkmann LLC would be pleased to provide you a consultation on your potential claim.

CRIMINAL DEFENSE

Oftentimes people find themselves facing criminal charges as a result of single bad decision. Some times that decision, was simply hanging out with the wrong crowd. The consequences of such a decision can be life altering. Let us help you prevent that decision from being a defining moment in your life.

Sometimes people who have committed crimes are threatened with punishment disproportionate to their criminal history. You need a firm that will do the work necessary to not only explore possible defenses, but also to present mitigating facts to the Prosecution and the Judge so that everyone involved knows that you are something more than what you have been charged with.

There are also those facing criminal charges arising from misunderstandings or even allegations that are outright false. Be skeptical of any lawyer who implies that they can simply make something “go away” if you hire them. By the time you are facing criminal charges the Prosecuting Attorney necessarily believes that they have all of the evidence necessary to convict you. A Prosecuting Attorney ought not and will not dismiss a charge or reduce a serious charge just because an attorney asks them to. Work needs to be done to convince the Prosecuting Attorney, the Judge, and/or the jury that things are not as simple as they seemed when the charges were issued.

If any of these situations describe you, please contact us for a consultation.

DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED (DWI)

Missouri law prohibits you from “operating” a motor vehicle while intoxicated. For operators 21 years of age and older, the threshold BAC (or, blood alcohol content) is 0.08. For operators under 21 years of age, the threshold BAC is 0.02.
