I drove up on a car parked in the middle of the road and the driver was slumped over the steering wheel, I tried to help but when I was putting the car in park he woke up, got upset and peeled out. My arm got caught in the steering and he dragged me down the road while I was hanging out the window and then I was thrown from the car.
The police found the guy passed out from alcohol. Ben not only got me money for my injuries and lost wages, he also helped me with the prosecutor's office when talking to them about the criminal charges against the driver. He explained the criminal process to me and gave me a lot of advice, even though he only represented me in the civil case.
He helped me pick out doctors and was very helpful throughout the entire process. I think he want above and beyond what I woudl expect a lawyer to do. He really cared about me and my case.

About two years ago I was seriously injured on the job. I was referred to Ben Sansone through a mutual friend and couldn't have been happier with the outcome of my case. There were two different sides to my case, worker's comp, and a liability case; there would have been no way I could have negotiated through the system for either one without Ben's expertise. He has also handled a number of traffic tickets for me and whether its a major issue like a lawsuit or a simple speeding ticket he has always been friendly, informative, and most importantly very professional any time I've needed representation. I would strongly endorse Ben Sansone to anyone in neeed of an attorney.

I fell at the St Louis Zoo and hurt my shoulder really bad, in fact I needed rotator cuff surgery. Ben was recommended to me through a friend and I was really happy with his work on my case. We had to file a lawsuit, but soon after we did the case settled for over $100,000, which was much more than I expected.
Ben was great, he always called me back or emailed me when I had questions. He was quicker to respond to emails than phone calls; but he would at least email me sometimes to say he got my voicemail and would call in a day or two because he was in court or something.
When the case settled I also had medical liens on my case, particularly from medicare, it slowed the settlement process down but Ben was able to work a deal out with medicare and save me a lot of money.
I was told from the beginning that slip and fall cases are tough, but I really think he cared about my questions and concerns and this guy really has a lot of pride to settle his cases for as much as possible. At one point the insurance guys offered $60,000; I was on the fence and Ben assured me that if we keep fighting he would get more, and a few months later he did.
He is not a - settle it fast lawyer - he is more of a take more time and get the best result rather than a quick turn around. I liked that. I will use him again if I ever need a good lawyer.

I do not know to many attorneys that you can call at 9pm on their cell phone and they answer it. I can also reach him by telephone or e-mail. I would highly recommend him as a lawyer to anyone I know.

Mr. Sansone is a proffessional lawyer that will keep you abreast of every twist and turn. I have retained other attorneys over the years and Mr. Sansone ranks at the top.

Before choosing Ben, I had meetings with 3 other lawyers. When we sat down to discuss my case for the first time (I was hit by an SUV while riding my bicycle), Ben walked me through how he would approach my case and what to expect. Not only was he the only lawyer I met with familiar with bicycle accidents, but he was the only lawyer interested in "talking" with me and addressing my questions rather than just getting me to sign a contract. He even met me at a coffee shop of my choosing.
Throughout my case, Ben was always available and answered all my questions promptly, honestly, and knowledgeably. After all was said and done, Ben ended up exceeding my expectations. During our final mediation, I recall the opposing lawyer shaking my hand and saying to me with a type of noble defeat, "just so you know, you got lucky. Ben is a d*** good lawyer". I would recommend Ben to anyone.
