When you’re dealing with the aftermath of a car accident, it can be overwhelming to navigate insurance claims and seek compensation for your injuries and losses.

Don’t let the insurance company dictate your future. Contact our St. Louis office today at 314-451-7586 for a free consultation. Let us help you navigate this difficult time and pursue the justice and compensation you deserve.

How We Can Help You

We’re the only law firm in Missouri that focuses exclusively on Missouri auto accident cases. If you were hurt in a car, truck, motorcycle, ATV, pedestrian, or bicycle crash caused by another person, our skilled attorneys can help you fight for fair compensation.

Determining Fault in MO Car Accidents

Establishing which party is responsible for your car crash is critical for obtaining fair compensation for your personal injury claim. Because you’re likely paying massive medical bills following the accident and may be out of work recovering, you need a fair settlement for damages, including your physical and emotional pain.

Determining who’s at fault requires that you prove the at-fault party breached their duty of care as a driver. This duty of care requires that a driver take reasonable care to “ensure any action taken or failed to take does not cause injury to another person on the road or cause damage to property.”

Potential Negligent Driving Behavior

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics
  • Engaging in acts of road rage
  • Failing to use a turn signal or ignoring other traffic laws
  • Inadequate maintenance and repair of the vehicle
  • Speeding
  • Weaving in and out of lanes
  • Reckless driving in poor weather conditions

Help Determine Fault: Gather Critical Evidence after a Missouri Car Accident

Making the right decisions in the moments after the accident can help you recover fair compensation following a serious crash. Even more important, however, is to retain an experienced Missouri car accident lawyer who can thoroughly investigate the accident and help gather evidence about the crash.

Important Evidence to Help Prove Fault in an MO Car Crash

  • Eyewitness testimony from anyone who directly saw the crash or any events leading up to the collision
  • Photographs of the accident site, including the surrounding environment, skid marks, and weather conditions
  • Photos of your physical injuries and damage to your vehicle
  • Cellphone data to show if the other driver was on their cellphone at the time of the crash
  • Maintenance records for vehicles in the accident
  • Medical records
  • Police report
  • Surveillance video footage
  • Toxicology reports from the other driver

This evidence is important because Missouri utilizes a legal doctrine known as “comparative fault,” which means you can still recover compensation even if you were partially at fault for the incident.

While that can be good news, it also gives insurers a reason to shift blame for the accident toward you. You will need an attorney to help maximize your financial recovery.

What Damages Can You Claim in a Missouri Accident Case?

In a Missouri car accident case, you may be eligible to claim various types of damages, including:

  1. Medical Expenses: This includes the cost of medical treatment related to your injuries, such as hospital bills, surgeries, medication, rehabilitation, and ongoing therapy.

  2. Lost Wages: If your injuries prevent you from working, you can claim compensation for the wages you’ve lost, including any future earning potential if your injuries result in long-term disability or reduced earning capacity.

  3. Property Damage: You can seek reimbursement for the repair or replacement of your vehicle and any other property damaged in the accident, such as personal belongings inside the vehicle.

  4. Pain and Suffering: Non-economic damages, such as physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish, may also be compensable. These damages aim to provide compensation for the intangible harms suffered as a result of the accident.

  5. Loss of Consortium: If the accident has negatively impacted your relationship with your spouse, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of companionship, affection, and support.

  6. Wrongful Death Damages: If a loved one dies as a result of the car accident, surviving family members may be able to pursue wrongful death damages, including funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of companionship.

  7. Punitive Damages: In rare cases involving egregious misconduct or recklessness, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the at-fault party and deter similar behavior in the future.
