What Are Accident Victims Rights?
As long as you file your claim within Missouri’s five-year statute of limitations, you can recover compensation for your accident-related costs, including:
Pain and Suffering
Insurance Negotiations or Civil Court?
You also have a choice how you would like to resolve your personal injury claim. You can decide to negotiate with an insurance company or take your case to civil court. There are pros and cons to either of those options, so we recommend you get the advice of an attorney before you make up your mind.
Three Keys to a Successful Personal Injury Claim in Missouri
- Get medical attention.
- Gather evidence, including photos of the injuries, contact information of witnesses and any police or employers reports about the incident.
- Contact a personal injury lawyer.
- Make a folder of your bills and injury-related expenses
Before you can recover personal injury compensation, you need proof that you were injured. That is why getting medical attention is of utmost importance. If your injury isn’t severe enough to need emergency transport, take yourself to a hospital or urgent care.
