What is Liability?

Fault depends on how the accident happened, where it happened, and how bad the damage is. If you are part of a semi-truck crash, for instance, it is key to figure out who is to blame. This is where our personal injury attorneys in Dardenne Prairie, MO, come into play. Was it caused by poor road conditions, the trucking company, negligent driving? That is why our firm has your back.

You can recover damages by either filing a personal injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company or by filing a personal injury lawsuit against them in the Dardenne Prairie courts; however, it may difficult to know if you have a right to a claim in either situation.

In order to succeed, you must be able to prove two critical items: damages and fault. For example, an individual, company, or employee(s) of a business must perform a wrongful act or fail at their duty to protect others from dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held responsible for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must fall within time restrictions set forth under MO statute of limitations.

Dardenne Prairie, MO, Personal Injury Attorneys

Often, personal injury claims are settled before reaching trial but, if one becomes necessary, we do not hesitate to face large insurance companies to get the amount of compensation you find fair for your injuries.

These big insurance companies will do anything they can to limit their liability and will therefore pressure you to make quick decisions on a settlement offer that may not be in your best interests long-term. Without someone on your side, you could lose out on getting sufficient coverage for your losses.

Furthermore, the personal injury claim process is made up of paperwork, unexpected obstacles, unfair denials, and complicated details. Using our extensive experience, we know the ins and outs of the process and want to make it as seamless as possible for you.

If you are still unsure if you have a case, an experienced Dardenne Prairie personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can discover if you have enough evidence to appropriately prove fault and seek damages. Contact us now.
