  • Missouri truck accidents can be very serious. The average car weighs about 3,000 pounds, where as a fully loaded commercial truck can weigh in excess of 80,000 pounds. This means that if you are involved in a truck accident, you could need the aid of an experienced St. Louis truck accident lawyer to help you recover from any personal injuries endured caused by a truck accident.
  • A pedestrian injured in an auto accident may recover damages if the injuries if the driver’s negligence caused or contributed to the accident. Negligence is doing something someone should not have done that harmed someone else, or not doing something he or she should have done that caused harm to another. The injured victim must prove that the driver who hit them was negligent and thus at fault for the incident.

What's Your Injury Case Worth?

Every personal injury case is different. The answer to this question always boils down to damages. That is, determining what your injuries cost you mentally, physically and monetarily.

A damage award in an accident claim is either agreed upon in a negotiated settlement or ordered by a judge or jury after a trial.

The majority of personal injury damages are compensatory and aim to atone for what you lost due to your injuries. Some compensatory damages recover your out-of-pocket expenses, including: medical costs, lost income, and property damage.

However, financial burdens are not all you may have lost in an accident. Your attorney could use similar accident cases from the area as reference when demanding non-economic losses. These intangible losses include pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, or loss of companionship or consortium.

If the defendant’s actions were out of malice or especially egregious, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. These exemplary damages are intended to punish the defendant and discourage similar behavior in the future.

It is important to select a highly skilled Chesterfield personal injury attorney who could fight for the maximum financial award. Kevin Roach has years of experience handling personal injury cases and could help you determine how much your case is worth by reviewing your injuries and the specific circumstances of your case.

Importance of Hiring An Accident Attorney

in Chesterfield

The bottom line is – you will most likely receive more for your injuries by hiring an experienced auto accident personal injury attorney.

Kevin Roach is one of those attorneys. He is a highly experienced and well-rated attorney who has practiced personal injury law since 2001. Kevin oversees every personal injury case to ensure that you receive the maximum financial award for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain & suffering.
