Negligence & Liability in Personal Injury Cases

Negligent parties can be held liable in court for the damages to persons or property that resulted from their wrongdoing. When a person or company is determined to be liable for damages, they are legally responsible for those damages and can be compelled to pay compensation to victims for their injuries. A person is typically considered liable when their acts of negligence —abuse, malpractice, neglect, code violation, etc. —has resulted in injuries or property damage. If you were hurt because of negligence, you have the option to sue the liable party.

Helping Clients Get Justice After An Injury

The members of our firm practice law because they believe in helping injury victims get justice. When people become hurt because of another party’s negligent actions (or lack of action), the injured parties have the right to pursue the recovery of damages. Damages are assessed by the courts and given a monetary value based on a variety of factors and circumstances related to the injury, including emotional distress caused by the injury, pain and suffering endured by the victim, costs of medical and rehabilitative care, and lost wages resulting from being too hurt to work.

So Many Things Can Go Wrong

We all know crashes are a possibility, but we want to bring you the actual statistics from the latest reporting year in Missouri:

  • 153,422 total crashes
  • 923 crash fatalities
  • 57,270 crash injuries

Looking at those numbers gives us a sobering perspective and helps us realize the reality. While many crash injuries are minor, we need to point out that even minor injuries can lead to major medical bills.

Why They Happen?

In many cases, the negligence of another driver causes a crash.

  • Alcohol-impaired drivers were responsible for 122 traffic crash fatalities and 2,607 injuries in the latest reporting year.
  • Those distracted by their phones, other devices, or other people while driving are much more likely to cause a crash.
  • Speeding and reckless driving is a choice and causes the most crash injuries.

There are also times when vehicle crashes are caused by poor vehicle maintenance. This is still negligence on the part of the vehicle owner. If the vehicle in question is a commercial vehicle, then the company or agency who owns the vehicle needs to be held accountable as well.
