Car Accidents in Missouri
Countless Missourians are forced to deal with overwhelming consequences from car crashes every single day. Unfortunately, many victims are left with painful physical and emotional injuries. The impact of collisions is often far-reaching. Not only do victims struggle to move forward physically and emotionally, but financially as well.
If you have been involved in a car accident in Missouri, you may be entitled to recover damages for your injuries, lost earnings, medical expenses, and vehicle repair expenses. To recover these damages, you will need to file a claim with your insurance company or the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
In Missouri, drivers are required to carry liability insurance. This insurance covers the damages that a driver may be liable for in an accident. If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, you may still be able to recover damages through your own uninsured motorist coverage.
Once you have filed a claim with the appropriate insurance company, they will investigate the accident and determine who is at fault. If the other driver is determined to be at fault, their insurance company will be responsible for paying your damages.
The amount of damages that you are entitled to receive will depend on the severity of your injuries and the extent of your property damage. You may also be able to recover punitive damages if the other driver was acting recklessly or negligently.
