In 2009, the state of Missouri enacted a “strict liability” law meaning that a dog owner is automatically responsible for the injuries caused by their dog. Before 2009, it had to be proven that a dog had a history of violent or dangerous behavior before its owner could be held liable in the event of an attack. Today, a dog owner is liable for the actions of his or her dog in almost all cases no matter its history of behavior.

How much does it cost?
The St. Louis personal injury attorneys at Kullmann, Klein & Dioneda, P.C., understand that victims of serious injuries are already in dire financial situations. Thus, we do not charge our clients any fees unless we are able to collect a monetary award for them.
Attorneys representing personal injury victims typically handle cases on a contingent fee basis. A contingent fee means you pay the attorney a percentage of what he or she collects for you. If no money is obtained, then you do not owe a fee. A client is not charged attorney fees if he loses the case. If the client recovers damages from settlement or a favorable verdict, the attorney receives the fee from the recovery. The attorney’s fee varies depending on the type of case and amount of recovery. One thing is for sure, if you don’t recover you don’t owe any attorney’s fee.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I am Injured at Work?
Nearly every employed Missouri or Illinois resident is protected by workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation covers injuries and occupational diseases which occur while you are on the job. The law guarantees you three kinds of Workers’ Compensation benefits:
- Health care to cure the injury
- Cash payments for lost wages
- Cash awards for any permanent or partial disabilities
If you have sustained an on-the-job injury, it is important that you understand your rights and obligations as soon as possible. Many injured workers commonly fail to do anything about work injuries out of fear of being fired or because they do not believe the injury is that serious. Failure to promptly notify an employer of a work injury, however, may preclude an injured worker from later pursuing a claim if it turns out to be more serious.
What if I am Injured by Someone’s Carelessness or Neglect?
There are many ways you can be injured through the carelessness or neglect of others, including:
- Car Accident
- Tractor Trailer Accident
- Accident with a Drunk Driver
- Motorcycle Accident
- Boating Accident
- Dog Bite
- Fall on Public or Private Property
- Defective Product
If you have been injured, you have valuable legal rights.
What If I am Injured in an Automobile Accident?
When you are the victim of an automobile accident you may be able to assert several types of claims. First, under the policy of the driver at fault, you have a claim for compensation for pain and suffering, permanent injuries, health care expenses, lost wages, and for the cost to repair or replace your damaged automobile. The other person’s insurance company may also be responsible for providing you with a rental car during the time it takes to either repair or replace your automobile.
Second, if the responsible driver is uninsured, your own insurance policy provides coverage for you. Therefore, you should collect essentially the same benefits even if the driver at fault is uninsured. Also, your own insurance policy may provide benefits that will pay all of your accident-related health care expenses.
Lastly, you should be aware that your insurance company cannot raise your rates if the accident was not your fault, regardless of whether you make a claim against your policy. Missouri Division of Insurance regulations provide:
“In no event shall an insurer request an increase in premium from any insured in connection with any claim arising out of any accident for which the insured was not at fault.” 4CRS 190- 17.100(3)
