Missouri Car Wreck Attorney
Being in a car accident will eventually happen to almost all of us, whether it be a minor fender bender or an accident that involves some sort of vehicle impact. However, some car accidents cause serious, life-changing and even fatal injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries in a Missouri car accident, we will seek full and fair compensation for damages, which can include:
- Past and future medical bills: These make up most of the “compensatory damages” or actual damages — and can include bills for future care, such as rehabilitation, specialist visits and therapy.
- Lost wages: Also part of compensatory damages, and the loss of earning capacity due to your injury can also be sought.
- Emotional damages/pain and suffering: These are “punitive damages” — and are in addition to any actual damages suffered; these are usually for serious cases in which another party was extremely negligent and even reckless in his or her actions.
