Personal Injury Law in Missouri
In Missouri, personal injury victims have five years from the date of their accident to file their claim. This is a fairly generous amount of time compared to some states that allow a window of only two years. By state law, people who are injured in a personal injury through no fault of their own, have the right to seek damages. In order to win their case, they must be able to demonstrate that their injuries are medically valid and caused by the defendant in the case. These cases can be complex. That’s why it’s important to contract with a firm that is dedicated to representing personal injury victims.
Typically, our clients do not request arbitrary sums when seeking compensation. In Missouri, compensation can include:
- Current Medical Costs
- Likely Future Medical Costs
- Current and Future Lost Wages
- Property Damage
- Pain and Suffering (both physical and mental anguish)
Arriving at a figure is no easy feat, particularly in cases where long-term or on-going medical care related to the injuries is required. We can procure the services of an actuary as well as medical experts to help clients arrive at a fair amount to seek for damages. Knowing this amount is important. Insurance providers may try to convince victims to settle for a figure that is far less that what they deserve. While it’s always the client’s call to make about whether to accept or decline an offer, knowing what fair compensation looks like can help them make an informed decision about whether to settle or proceed to litigation.
