A traffic accident can be a perplexing and even painful experience. Traffic accidents that end in a fatality are particularly traumatic. We at the law offices of Kevin J. Roach wish all parties a quick and thorough recovery, and extend our condolences to the family of Ms. Head.
Missouri offers a widespread system of personal injury laws meant to protect parties who are injured through another person’s negligent actions. Here, though the accident may have been caused by one party, the recovery for that action could be lessened by the other party’s own negligence. The claimant will be entitled to payment for lost wages, pain and suffering, any damaged property, and any medical bills incurred as a result of the accident that are not a result of her own negligence.
