Legal Considerations For Missouri Car Accident Claims
The first step in an auto accident case is to begin understanding the events that occurred and to collect evidence to build a strong claim. Our lawyers can answer any legal questions you may have about your potential case, and you’ll always have access to legal support when you choose Brown & Crouppen Law Firm.
Some further considerations:
- Motor vehicle accidents can lead to serious injuries. Even if injuries do not seem present or obvious after a collision, it’s important to seek immediate medical attention following a car accident. This is often the foundation for building strong evidence with proof of medical treatment and injuries that occurred as a result of the car wreck.
- Each state is typically referred to as an “at-fault” or “no-fault” state. Missouri is an at-fault state, meaning that the accident victim will pursue compensation from the liable, or “at-fault,” party. In most cases, compensation is paid out from the liable party’s insurance company.
- In Missouri, car accident victims have 5 years to file a claim, starting from the date that the accident occurred. For car accidents that resulted in death, the date starts on the day that the death occurred. This is referred to as the Missouri Statute of Limitations for car accidents, which may also have other considerations depending on your unique case.
An experienced car accident lawyer at Brown & Crouppen will help you properly file a claim, negotiate with insurance companies, and collect all of the supporting evidence needed to obtain sufficient compensation.
