Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
Personal Injury & Wrongful Death situations bring lots of difficulties. Columbia Injury Attorney, Ernie Ueligger, understands that when you are hurt, you are not the only one affected; your family feels the impact, both financial and emotional, as well. However, Ernie also understands that the pursuit of making you and your family whole again (or as close to whole as possible) is probably not your only goal.
The vast majority of Ernie’s clients, both past and present, have a sincere desire to ensure that their families, their friends, and their communities are made safer by preventing similar acts of carelessness in the future. They simply do not want what happened to them and the struggles that were forced upon them to be forced upon another member of their family, their friends, or their community. Often times, the ultimate goal is that through their case, the at-fault person or company and others will be deterred in the future from behaving with carelessness or reckless disregard for the safety of others.
While Ernie fully recognizes that there will come a time to employ his legal expertise and abilities for you, his first responsibility is to listen to you, your circumstances that led you to his office, and your ultimate goals so that he can properly represent you as a person, not just another case.

What is Personal Injury?
When you have been hurt or injured through the fault of another, Missouri law requires the person that caused those injuries to provide compensation to fix the harms and losses that can be fixed, to help those harms and losses that cannot be fixed, and to make up for those harms and losses that cannot be fixed or helped.
If you have been injured in an accident, remember that many times you are fighting against an insurance company, not an individual. People have insurance to make sure if they harm someone or cause someone some type of loss, that person is made whole again.
These harms and losses may include, but are not limited to:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Medical costs for wheel chairs/braces
- Vehicle repair or replacement costs
- Permanent physical limitations and disability
- Permanent/Ongoing pain
- Loss of (or lessened) enjoyment of life
- Home modifications/adaptations
- In-home nursing care
- Prescription costs
- Occupational Re-training
