St. Louis, Missouri Personal Injury Settlements Lawyer

Every year, 161,374 people are killed because of unintentional injuries in the U.S. The primary cause of personal injury settlements in Missouri is motor vehicle accidents, with 18,707 people killed in 2016. Other common types of personal injury settlements in the State of Missouri include accidental poisoning (medication errors) and accidental falls (slip and fall, workers compensation). On average, 95-percent of personal injury cases settle before making it to trial.

There are many different elements at play with personal injury settlements, including whether there is significant evidence from the accident, proof of the other party’s negligence, and if a Missouri Personal Injury Settlements Lawyer is involved when filing the claim. Recovering a high settlement for a personal injury case can be impossible without adequate legal knowledge, but an experienced lawyer can make sure that you have a substantial amount of evidence, a compelling claim, and that you have the highest chance of recovering compensation for your harm and losses.

Missouri Personal Injury Statute

The Missouri Statute of Limitations states that if a person is harmed or injured because of another person’s negligence, the victim has up to five years after the accident to file a claim against the negligent party. While not all states follow the “Rule of Discovery,” in the State of Missouri, the five year time frame for filing a personal injury claim begins only once the person is “aware” of their injuries in special situations such as medical malpractice.

If you suffered injuries in an accident, it’s essential to involve a Missouri Personal Injury Settlements Lawyer with your case as soon as possible. The scope of qualifying injuries that fall under the Rule of Discovery can be narrow, and if the rule doesn’t apply to your case, you must file a personal injury claim within five years of your accident occurring, or you risk forfeiting all rights to recover compensation.

What Damages Can I Recover with a Missouri Personal Injury Settlements Lawyer?

When filing a personal injury claim in Missouri, it’s crucial to keep in mind that if your case involves medical malpractice, there is a limit on the number of damages you can recover for your harm and losses. As of 2019, the damages cap for medical malpractice injury claims in Missouri is $427,901 for non-catastrophic injuries, and $748,828 for fatal injuries. Other personal injury claims, such as those involving motor vehicle accidents, workers compensation accidents, and other types of personal injury are not subjected to a damages cap.

If a valid personal injury claim is filed in the State of Missouri, a victim can recover compensation for damages such as medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and property damage that stemmed from the accident. The amount that can be recovered for personal injury cases can vary depending on the severity of the person’s injuries, whether the other party is solely at fault in the accident, and if a Missouri Personal Injury Settlements Lawyer is representing the individual’s case. An experienced lawyer knows the best tactics to use when negotiating with the other party for an acceptable settlement, and whether a client should accept a settlement or push back against the other party’s insurance company and demand more compensation for their injuries.
