A traffic accident can be a tough and even upsetting experience. We at the law offices of Kevin J. Roach wish all parties a quick and thorough recovery.
Missouri offers an exhaustive system of personal injury laws meant to protect persons who are injured through the negligent actions of another person. Here, it is possible that all parties could have claims against the other depending on a determination of fault. The party seeking compensation will be entitled to payment for any lost wages, damaged property, any pain and suffering, and any medical bills incurred as a direct result of the accident.
Missouri law states that you have five (5) years to file your personal injury lawsuit. Illinois law states that you have only two (2) years. However, you do not want to wait that long to file a claim. Some cases require a good deal of discovery and preparation.
Some accident victims are reluctant to hire an attorney because they think they cannot afford one. However, most personal injury attorneys, including Kevin Roach, are only paid if you receive a settlement or a verdict in your favor. You do not pay anything up front.
Also, those that hire a personal injury attorney usually end up receiving 3.5x more compensation than if they handled the case on their own.
