Your Free Case Evaluation

Our reviews speak for themselves. When you have a question, we answer. We’re honest, caring, and we take the time to sit down with you and talk about your legal issues thoroughly - for free. As long as you need. There is no time limit to making our clients feel comfortable.

We both worked for large insurance defense firms for years before switching to the side of justice. We have a decade of experience doing case evaluations for the other side - so we know all the tactics the defense will use, and how to counter them to get our clients the best result possible.

During your case evaluation, we will answer: What is my case worth? How long does this take? Who will pay for my medical bills? Should I sign documents sent by the insurance company? What about my lost wages? When do I get paid? What is the legal process like? Is there anything I can do to help my own case?

No one has ever regretted contacting us, as our testimonials show, so request your free case evaluation today.

Some Often-Asked Questions About Our Free Case Evaluations…

Is there a time limit for my consultation?

No. We strongly believe in taking the time to listen and get to know our clients (and their legal issues) thoroughly. It makes us better lawyers, and it gives you the service you deserve.

What should I expect in my free consultation?

We’ll set aside a time for you through email or phone call, and you’ll visit our office on West Main Street in Belleville, our satellite office in St. Louis, or, if it’s easier for you, we’ll come to you. Please bring any evidence or information about your case with you - photos, documents from your insurer/the other guy’s insurer, and anything else that helps tell us what happened.

For your consultation, both John and Brady will sit down with you privately and discuss your legal matter and answer all your questions. We are realistic in our approach to law, so we’ll tell you honestly if you don’t have a strong case or if we know another lawyer better suited to your legal needs. If you have questions after our consultation, please call or email us, and we’ll answer those too, no charge. We are available 24/7 to anyone who needs to reach us - we’ll give you our cellphone numbers - and will respond as quickly as we can to address your question.

If you were so badly hurt that you’re in the hospital and can’t come to us, we’ll come visit your hospital room. Your free consultation is about your needs, so just let us know what works best for you.

Why choose HM for a free case evaluation?

From the big downtown firms we used to work for to the myriad claims we’ve handled since then in all types of law, John Hipskind and Brady McAninch have the tools to successfully protect injury victims. More than that, we have genuine compassion for our clients. We are here to help you. Once you speak with us, you’ll know that it’s true, and that we’ll do everything we can to get you the justice you deserve and the money you need to recover fully.

If You Hire Us, We Don’t Get Paid Until You Do

After an accident, you shouldn’t be worrying about "how can I afford a lawyer?" At Hipskind & McAninch, LLC, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that our payment is "contingent" on us getting you a fair settlement or jury verdict for your personal injury claim. If we need to hire experts to investigate your claim, we’ll advance those costs.

Once you receive your settlement or verdict, we’ll take a percentage of the final amount, plus the costs we fronted to pursue your claim successfully. If we don’t win or settle your case, you don’t pay our fee. It’s that simple.
