Truck Accidents in Missouri

Jefferson, MO – 13-Year-Old Girl Hurt in Truck Crash on US-67 near Baisch DrMissouri car accidents leave tens of thousands of people injured each year. Unfortunately, many people struggle to move forward following their accidents. The physical and financial impacts of crashes can be overwhelming in a variety of ways. Fortunately, when people are injured as a result of accidents, they may be able to file a legal claim against the person who is responsible.

It is important to understand that Missouri is an at-fault state when it comes to car accidents. This means that the person who caused the accident is responsible for paying for any damages that result from it. Missouri is also a pure comparative negligence state, which means that the damages awarded in an accident can be adjusted based on the amount of fault each driver shares.

There are two types of damages that can be recovered following a car accident in Missouri. The two types are economic and non-economic. Economic damages are provided to victims to cover lost wages, damage to the vehicles, and other financial burdens that they face due to their accidents. Non-economic damages are awarded to cover things that impact the lives of victims but do not necessarily have a dollar value. These damages can include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
