Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, tragic collisions take place in the state of Missouri that have devastating consequences for those involved. We see countless people hospitalized with significant injuries that require medical care. Suffering a traumatic brain injury, internal organ damage, or another severe injury can require extensive medical treatment. Victims are often forced to struggle physically, emotionally, and financially as a result of their accidents.
Fortunately, Missouri law allows victims of car accidents to recover these damages through a personal injury lawsuit. To succeed in such a lawsuit, you’ll need to prove that the other driver was at fault for the accident.
If you can do so, you’ll be able to recover your lost earnings, medical costs, and vehicle repair expenses from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. In some cases, you may also be able to recover punitive damages, which are designed to punish the at-fault driver for their negligence.
