A traffic accident can be a difficult and even agonizing experience. We at the law offices of Kevin J. Roach wish all parties a quick and thorough recovery.
Missouri offers a comprehensive 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 because of one driver, that action can be lessened by the occupant’s own negligence. The party seeking relief 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.
