What Is Personal Injury Law?

Personal injury law enables accident victims to seek financial recovery if the negligence of others causes them physical injury, property damage, financial losses, emotional distress, or other compensable harms. If the victim’s attorney can establish that negligent actions caused the accident or injury, the personal injury victims may be eligible for a monetary award for economic and non-economic damages with a successful personal injury claim.

A personal injury lawyer helps injured victims facilitate the legal recovery process, handle negotiations with insurance companies, and fulfill the stringent requirements for a St. Louis personal injury lawsuit. Learn more in our Personal Injury FAQ.

What Is Negligence in Personal Injury?

Negligence can describe any action or inaction that falls outside the standards of care for the circumstances. For example, every driver on the road owes duties of care to reasonably prevent harm to other drivers. If a driver texts behind the wheel and gets in a car accident with another vehicle, they have breached a duty of care and may be liable for victims’ damages.

Personal injury law helps accident victims hold negligent, reckless, or careless parties responsible for their actions. To have a successful personal injury claim in Missouri, a claimant will generally need to prove that:

  1. the defendant owed him/her a duty of care,
  2. the defendant breached this duty of care,
  3. the breach of duty caused the accident
  4. the claimant suffered damages as a result.

Our personal injury lawyers can help with this burden of proof, collecting evidence through a thorough investigation and presenting a claim in a way that gives the plaintiff the best odds of success.

Missouri Personal
Injury Law + Statutes

Personal injury law does not only deal with auto accidents. An injured person might have grounds to file a product liability claim, premises liability claim, medical malpractice claim, workers’ compensation claim, and more in St. Louis, depending on who or what caused the damages in question.

Certain sets of laws govern when, why, and how accident victims can file personal injury claims in Missouri. Some of the most pertinent to know as a victim are:

Certain sets of laws govern when, why, and how accident victims can file personal injury claims in Missouri. Some of the most pertinent to know as a victim are:

Deadlines for Filing a Personal Injury Claim

Missouri sets strict statutes of limitations controlling how long a victim has to bring a claim. Do not miss a deadline for filing your personal injury claim, as this can mean losing your right to file. You have five years from the date of the accident for most personal injury lawsuits or property damage claims. Medical malpractice claims are given two years from the date or a 10-year maximum deadline for discovery of injuries after the fact.

Shared Fault Determination After an Accident

Many cases are not as cut-and-dry as one party retaining 100% fault for an accident. For cases in which the injured party also holds some percentage of responsibility for the incident, Missouri uses a “pure comparative fault” rule. Pure comparative fault will reduce the plaintiff’s compensation award by the percentage that he or she was at fault for the incident. In Missouri, even if a plaintiff is 99% at fault for an incident, he or she could still collect damages.

Claims Against the Government

Should a government agency or employee cause someone else’s personal injury accident or wrongful death, the victim must follow special rules to bring a personal injury claim. Claimants have only 90 days after the incident to file an official claim against the allegedly responsible party.

St. Louis Personal Injury FAQ

How Do I Know That I Have a Personal Injury Case in St. Louis?

Automobile accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, property damage, wrongful death, and accidents on the job are only some of the most common causes of injuries leading to personal injury claims. Lawsuits for personal injury can be filed when another party is at fault for the harm sustained by the plaintiff. Legal "negligence" is the most common basis for compensation sought by plaintiffs in cases involving personal injury claims. The following are the fundamental requirements for a negligence action:

  • The defendant was responsible for providing reasonable care to the injured party;
  • The defendant was negligent in their duties to the party who was hurt;
  • The actions or inaction committed by the defendant were the root cause of the victim's injuries; and the harmed party sustained damage that can be compensated for in the civil court system.

Even though negligence is the most common reason for filing a personal injury claim, it is by no means the only type of case that might result in a lawsuit being filed. To learn more about whether you have a viable claim for compensation for your injuries, contact us for a free case evaluation.

Should I Call My Insurance Carrier After an Accident?

Yes. It is crucial to contact your insurance provider and report any accident that resulted in injuries or property damage, regardless of who was at fault.

It's a frequent misconception that you only need to contact your insurance provider if you are at fault. This is untrue because your insurance policy may contain a number of coverages that you might want to utilize. Additionally, every state has regulations restricting insurance companies from increasing your rates if you use your coverage to pay for an accident for which you are not at fault. That would be illogical and would, in essence, penalize you for utilizing the insurance for which you paid.

What Can I Expect From My Initial Consultation With a St. Louis Personal Injury Attorney?

When speaking with a personal injury attorney, you will review the specifics of your case and get any pertinent concerns addressed at your initial consultation, during which you will learn about the personal injury claims procedure. This discussion will assist the legal staff in determining whether or not your case has validity based on your circumstances.

Most importantly, you'll talk about what you need to do next to ensure your case goes according to plan. You will be asked to recount the occurrence in your own words when you first meet with a personal injury lawyer, even if you're not sure how whatever information you can provide may support your claim. Generally speaking, the longer the discussion may last, the more serious the harm involved. After all, a malpractice claim involving a fatality will take longer to defend than a slip and fall.

When Should I See a Doctor After an Accident in St. Louis?

It is a general rule of thumb to follow up with a doctor within 48 hours of an injury. Common ailments like whiplash can manifest their symptoms in the hours and even days following an accident. Some symptoms take time to manifest since any swelling or inflammation can mask the presence of a more severe condition. Additionally, using painkillers at home can hide your symptoms.

When juggling job and family responsibilities, 72 hours could seem like a very short period to some people. Keep in mind that taking care of yourself and your health is vital. Seek medical evaluation following an accident as soon as possible, even if you feel okay. Failure to do so may damage the integrity of your claim and your ability to seek compensation for any injuries that may arise later down the line.

How Much Does a St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

An injured person will never pay a penny to meet with a personal injury attorney for the first time. That's because personal injury attorneys, such as the team at Goldblatt + Singer, provide prospective clients with complimentary free consultations. Why do this? Simple. Personal injury attorneys want to be easy to find for their clients. They are aware that many clients would hesitate to contact them if they believed it would be costly.

A person who has sustained severe personal injuries should be able to consult with a lawyer without worrying about being charged a hefty fee. However, free consultations are just the beginning. A lawyer who works on contingency fees, such as the experienced attorneys at Goldblatt + Singer, will only receive payment if their work secures the client's compensation for a personal injury, typically in the form of a settlement or jury award. Our legal team always strives for maximum compensation for every client we defend.
