I pride myself on tirelessly fighting for the injury victims who continuously trust me with their cases. It is an honor to serve and a passion which drives my existence.

Missouri Car Accident Negligence Claims

Car accidents can happen for many different reasons, but most car accidents are caused by driver error and entirely preventable. In the State of Missouri, 930 people died in fatal car accidents in 2017. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the top causes of crashes in Missouri are speeding, alcohol use, inexperienced drivers, and commercial trucks.

If you are injured in a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, it’s essential to:

  • Stay calm and call 911 – a police report includes statements from all parties involved, evidence from the accident, witness reports, and what/who police believe caused the accident
  • Gather as much evidence as possible – while police reports include evidence from the accident, responding officers might not collect every last piece of evidence from the crash like you or your lawyer would
  • Get prompt medical attention – a detailed medical report can be powerful evidence. A medical report includes your physician’s diagnosis of your injuries, an outcome for your recovery, and details about what caused your injuries, and when the accident occurred
  • Consult a lawyer – a Missouri Negligent Car Accident can offer assistance with collecting evidence, protect you from the other party’s insurer, and make sure that you have everything you need to bring a compelling claim against the negligent party.

Proving Negligence in a Missouri Car Accident

Negligence isn’t always easy to identify or prove. For example, in a multi-vehicle car accident, there could be more than one negligent party involved and varying degrees of negligence. When this happens, it’s crucial to hire a Missouri Negligent Car Accident Lawyer and create a claim that includes evidence that displays the harm you experienced in the accident (a medical report or photos), proof that the other party is responsible for your injuries, and evidence of their negligence (distracted driving, driver fatigue, driving under the influence, speeding). Once a claim is submitted to the other party’s insurance company, an experienced lawyer can negotiate with the other party for a high settlement and recover damages for your harm and losses from an accident.

What Kind of Damages Can I Recover from a Negligent Driver in Missouri?

In Missouri, if a negligent driver causes an accident that harms another driver, they are required to compensate the victim for damages caused in the accident. However, a valid car accident claim must be filed according to Missouri’s Statute of Limitations, which is five years from when the accident occurred. There isn’t a limit to the amount of compensation that can be recovered for car accidents, but there is a limit on Medical Malpractice claims in Missouri. If you or someone you love files a claim against a negligent driver in an accident, you could be eligible to recover compensation for medical expenses, mental and physical distress, lost wages, property damage, and other expenses that stemmed from the accident.
