Determining If You Have A Personal Injury Claim
In the state of Missouri, there are 3 common basis for filing an injury claim including:
- Negligence – The most common basis for personal injury claims, which is defined as an individual or group of individuals who failed to act in accordance with a standard of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have acted under the same circumstances. For example, a driver of an automobile who runs a red light.
- Strict liability – Holds an individual or party liable for an action without concern for their intent or mental state. For example, the manufacturer of a defective product is liable if their product results in harm or injuries to others even if the manufacturer did not intend to cause harm.
- Intentional Wrong – Any action intended to cause harm, which can include assault & battery, sexual abuse, or intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Evaluating How Much A Personal Injury Claim Is Worth
Each personal injury claim is unique, and are therefore depending on may factors including the following:
- Severity of injuries – Injuries are often categorized by severity. The most severe are catastrophic injuries and wrongful death lawsuits, which are going to have a higher claim value than injuries that are recoverable such as torn tissues, fractures, or broken bones.
- Medical Costs – All medical bills and medical treatment (historical, outstanding, and future) of injury victims are also factored in to determine the level of financial compensation – both in court and by an insurance company.
- Lost wages – Individuals who may suffer from a serious injury are likely unable to work for an extended period of time or even permanently. Both the present and future are factors when determining the total value to be paid out as part of a personal injury case.
