Car Accidents

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

People are injured in car accidents every day on the streets and highways in and around Rolla. Related injuries can be serious and sometimes the accidents are the result of recklessness or carelessness on the part of one driver.

Our attorneys at Thomas, Birdsong, Mills, McBride & Osborne, P.C. represent Missourians seriously injured in car accidents that result from recklessness, negligence, or deliberate wrongdoing. We seek justice on your behalf, fighting for compensation to cover your loss, your pain and suffering, and your medical care. Throughout our law practice, our clients benefit from our personal attention until maximum recovery has been achieved, and from our long trial experience and record of good results.

If we take on your car accident case, our team will examine the police report, interview witnesses, and conduct our own investigation in order to establish liability. We may even consult accident reconstruction experts to help us prepare and present the case.

The attorney working on your case will prepare it thoroughly and systematically, on the assumption that it will go to trial. By planning to present the evidence to a jury, we put ourselves and our clients in an excellent position with regard to negotiating a just settlement out of court.

At Thomas, Birdsong, Mills, McBride & Osborne, P.C., we understand that effective representation in serious car accident cases requires trial skill, experience, and the ability to respond to physical pain, disrupted lives, and families going through a difficult time. We do everything in our power to make sure you receive personalized and attentive service from start to finish.

There are a variety of ways a car accident can occur – quite often, the accident is the fault of one driver who is acting negligently.

Someone may be liable for your injuries sustained in a car accident if they were:

  • Driving drunk
  • Using a cell phone and other technology while driving
  • Driving erratically
  • Speeding
  • Running stop signs and red lights
  • Tailgating


“I was represented by David Mills in a civil litigation and was so impressed by his work ethic that even though at one time I thought we had no chance to win, he researched the case so thoroughly that we won and even his legal fees were very fair. I would definitely recommend him and his firm.”
— Bob D.
“Recently, I was represented by Scott McBride as a defendant in a minor, but not insignificant, legal matter. We had never met before and I had no experience hiring an attorney. Needless to say, I was nervous about what it would cost and what would happen next, etc. I am relieved to say that nervousness was quickly replaced with confidence. Scott was professional, yet approachable. He explained things clearly, offered opinions based on experience (without sugar coating it), and I always knew where we stood with the case. When he wasn't immediately available, his staff kindly helped me. Other law firms may have done an adequate job, too. But I'm glad I chose this one.”
— Eric M.
