Have You Been Injured in a Speeding Accident?
Speeding accidents are often traumatic and result in unexpected expenses that can hinder a victim’s ability to focus on healing and moving on from the catastrophic event. Missouri Injury Laws state that if someone is responsible for another person’s physical, mental, or financial harm, they are liable to compensate the victim for damages.
Typically, compensation for speeding accident claims in Missouri include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and property damage that the victim incurred because of the accident, and in wrongful death cases, can include funeral and burial expenses.
After an accident, several essential steps need to be taken, such as calling 911, getting immediate medical attention, and consulting an experienced attorney about the accident. Involving an attorney ensures that you have someone offering support when filing a claim, and guarantees that you won’t have to negotiate with the insurer directly to recover compensation. Often, insurance companies try to take advantage of victims after an accident and offer reduced settlements, but a lawyer can make sure that your claim is safe from the insurer’s tactics.
