Missouri is an “At-Fault” State for Car Accidents

Missouri has a traditional fault-based tort system for car accidents. This means that the driver who causes a crash is financially responsible for any damages caused to others. The alternative “no-fault” system, requires injured parties to turn to their own insurance providers for coverage of medical bills after a crash. This does not guarantee that you’ll be fully covered for damages and can result in hefty out-of-pocket expenses.

In Missouri, drivers pursue compensation directly from the at-fault party’s insurance company or by filing a civil lawsuit against the driver themselves. Our law firm was founded in Missouri which means we have many years of experience and inside knowledge into how to win in local courts. When you choose our legal team to represent you, our goal is to maximize the overall value of your injury case. This means that we will make our best effort to secure a settlement that is worth more than the “regional average.”

Common Causes Of St. Louis Car Accidents

To win your St. Louis car accident case, it must have been caused by another person’s error (or in legal terms – negligence). In the state of Missouri, you are required to drive with the highest degree of care, meaning that you must drive at a reasonable speed rate to not endanger another person’s property or life.

If someone fails to drive to this degree and it results in an accident, our St. Louis car accident lawyers will argue that the individual harmed you and is responsible for all of your damages, not just some of them.

Common Instances Of Negligence That Cause Auto Accidents In St. Louis

  • Excessive speed
  • Distracted driving
  • Following vehicles too closely
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Driving while tired or fatigued

If any of these or more were involved with the cause of your accident, please share the details with our firm during a free case evaluation. Our St. Louis car accident attorneys can identify all your options and help you move forward in a way that suits you best.

WHAT TO DO AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT IN ST. LOUIS

Car accidents are traumatic. They happen quickly with little to no warning. If you are reading this after a wreck, we hope that you’re ok and are able to recover quickly. One note is to always remember the date of the accident.

In the event of a car accident, it’s important to take all necessary steps to protect yourself and your loved ones from further harm. The stress of the situation can cause you to make quick decisions that may not be in your best interest. To help prepare you for the unfortunate event of a wreck, we’ve outlined the 3 most important things to remember:

  • Get to a safe spot and call emergency services for the injured.
  • Always get a police report – the police report documents the occurrences and parties involved.
  • Do not give a recorded statement to the other side’s insurance company. They will try to defeat and diminish your claim.
