Areas of Law Description
The general practice law office of Eng & Woods provides clients in Columbia with legal advice and representation on the following matters:
- Automobile Accidents
Auto accident litigation can be a particularly stressful process because of the involvement of insurance companies. It is always a good idea to consult with an experienced attorney before you make any decisions regarding a motor vehicle accident claim. There is a big difference in the law firm you choose. Eng & Woods has a reputation for helping their mid-Missouri neighbors through the difficult times and are well-respected both in the community and legal circles.
- Truck Accidents
Collisions involving large trucks such as semis, tractor-trailers, and 18-wheelers can cause massive damage and injuries. Large truck accidents result in hundreds of thousands of injuries annually, and according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), about 5,000 individuals die in truck accidents or from related injuries on a yearly basis. When accidents resulting from negligence lead to injuries or death, victims (or their loved ones) have the right to seek compensation for their losses and damages. With the help of a Columbia truck accident lawyer from the Law Office of Eng & Woods, you can achieve coverage for medical bills, property damage, and even psychological trauma, in certain cases.
- Personal Injury
If your injuries were caused by someone’s negligent or careless acts, you may be entitled to receive compensation for past and future medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement and emotional distress. You need an experienced Missouri personal injury attorney who is not afraid to go to court and hold those responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions. The law office of Eng & Woods built its reputation on helping our mid-Missouri neighbors in these troubled times. Since 1953, we have provided clients with aggressive representation in personal injury cases, including:
• Automobile accidents
• Motorcycle accidents
• 18-wheeler accidents
• Medical malpractice
• Wrongful death
• Slip-and-fall accidents
• On-the-job injuries
• Products liability
- Head and Brain Injuries
Most head and brain injuries occur because of preventable accidents. And sadly, many head injuries have lifelong effects and associated expenses, such as those for special needs, medication expenses, doctor appointments, and essential equipment. We understand the countless physical and financial obstacles you face, and are committed to helping you obtain the compensation you deserve. While many head injuries are visibly obvious and receive the necessary attention, others that occur in seemingly minor accidents could go unnoticed. If you or a loved one is dealing with the effects of a head or brain condition that occurred as the result of negligence, the Columbia head injury lawyers of Eng & Woods are here to help you.
- Spinal Cord Injury
Spine and spinal cord injuries are among the most serious types of personal injuries. Those who suffer damage to their spines or spinal cords are likely to experience severe pain and discomfort, and/or suffer temporary, long-term, or even permanent disability. The Columbia spine injury attorneys of the Law Office of Eng & Woods understand the obstacles that those battling spine injuries face. Serving clients throughout the mid-Missouri region, our lawyers work aggressively to help victims of negligence obtain the compensation they deserve for their spine injuries. When spinal injuries leave you disabled, incapable of work or providing for your family, and saddled with medical bills, you are entitled to certain coverage for your losses.
- Workers' Compensation
Injuries in the workplace are common. Whether you work in an office building or a steel mill, accidents can happen, and there are state and federal laws in place that allow workers to receive benefits from their employer while they recover from their injuries. However, when employers and their insurance companies refuse to play by the rules, an experienced attorney can help you fight to get the benefits you deserve. The law office of Eng & Woods represents people throughout Missouri in workers compensation cases. Workers compensation claims cover all types of injuries.
- Criminal Defense
The law firm of Eng & Woods handles felonies, misdemeanors, municipal, state, and federal crime cases. Our team is well practiced in local Missouri court procedures and law and we work hard to reduce sentencing and provide legal insight regarding plea bargains and the realities of the judicial process. Eng & Woods understands that a criminal charge can be devastating, especially if you don’t understand your rights. Let our experienced criminal team help protect your rights, whether you face a DWI, drug charges, traffic violation, MIP, or any other criminal charge.
- Family Law
You probably have an emotional investment as well as financial investment in your marriage and your children, and these two things can often conflict and make it very difficult to resolve settlement issues involving divorce and child support. Our attorneys can provide top-notch legal assistance and time and money-saving guidance. We make every reasonable effort to negotiate settlements that are satisfactory to both sides, but sometimes settlement isn’t an option. In this situation, we are prepared to try the case in court.
