Car Accident Lawsuits: What Can I Recover?

January 27, 2014Car Accidents,Firm News

If you suffered injuries in a car accident caused by negligent or reckless actions of another, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation. A St. Louis car accident attorney can review your case and discuss the procedures for filing an injury compensation claim. The types of recoverable monetary damages can include:

  • Hospitalization expenses
  • Medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost income
  • Rehabilitation
  • Property damage


In Missouri, drivers are required to carry a minimum coverage amount for auto accidents. If you are injured in an auto accident, then you can theoretically recover as much as is provided by insurance. The minimum requirements are $25k for bodily injury per person, $50k for bodily injury per accident and $10k for property damage per accident.

If you are injured in a car accident, then the at-fault driver’s insurance would provide compensation for various bodily injury expenses such as medical bills and rehabilitation treatments and it would also provide compensation for property damage such as the cost to repair or replace your vehicle.

For some particularly gross motor vehicle offenses, at-fault drivers may be required to pay punitive damages. This is a form of disciplinary compensation paid by the at-fault driver to the victim. Punitive damages could be awarded in a drunk driving accident or wrongful death car accident case, for example.
