Missouri attorney Anthony Bruning was born and raised in St. Louis and attended the University of Missouri and the St. Louis University School of Law. He has been licensed to practice law in the State of Missouri since 1980 and has taken in excess of 100 cases to a jury verdict. He focuses his personal injury practice on fire and burn injuries, and is well-versed in the following types of cases:\n\nBurn injuries – Burns are among the most emotionally and physically painful injuries that a person can sustain. Often, these injuries require years of treatment and leave victims with significant scarring. Mr. Bruning is dedicated to helping burn injury victims recover for their injuries and suffering.\n\nProduct liability cases – Consumers who purchase products rightfully expect that they are safe to be used as intended. Unfortunately, thousands of people each year are injured by defectively designed, manufactured, or marketed products. In some cases, defective products can even cause serious burn injuries if they cause fires or explode.\n\nResidential fires – Many people are injured in house fires, particularly if a fire starts at night while the residents of the home are asleep. There are many causes of residential fires, ranging from defective products to faulty electrical wiring. Mr. Bruning works tirelessly to uncover evidence of negligence resulting in house fires and is committed to helping victims recover.\n\nSmoke detector litigation – Smoke detectors are legally required to notify occupants of a structure of a fire with enough time to allow those occupants to escape through a normal exist. When they fail to do so, the manufacturer can be held liable for all resulting losses.\n\nSubrogation – When people are injured in fires that are covered by insurance, the insurance company takes over the insured right to sue the party or parties that caused the fire. While many of these attorneys are insurance defense lawyers, Mr. Bruning assists insurance companies in successfully resolving subrogation claims.\n\nWorker’s Compensation claims – Many workplace injuries, including burns, are covered under states’ various Worker’s Compensation claims. While these are generally “no-fault” programs, claims can quickly become complicated and the assistance of an attorney can be extremely helpful in getting the maximum benefits available as quickly as possible.\n\nPersonal injury – In addition to his practice helping victims with burn injuries, Mr. Bruning represents clients injured in a variety of preventable accidents.\n\nMr. Bruning is a member of several professional organizations, including the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, whose membership is limited to attorneys who have obtained million dollar awards or settlements for their clients. Additionally, he is a member of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys, the National Association of Fire Investigators, the Missouri Bar, and the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis.
