Personal Injury Lawyers in Jeffersoncity

Though accidents are often unavoidable and pretty common, that does not prevent us from suffering from the pain and emotional trauma that result. After incurring an injury from an unexpected accident, you may wonder whether you are eligible for monetary compensation to cover medical costs, lost wages, or pain and suffering. First, it’s helpful to understand that you may be able to receive a monetary settlement by filing an insurance claim or seeking damages through a personal injury lawsuit. The right step to take will depend on the circumstances of your accident, and a skilled personal injury law firm can help you determine the right course of action.

The Basics of Personal Injury Lawsuits in Missouri

A personal injury lawsuit may be appropriate when an individual sustains an injury that may be the fault of someone else, either through their direct actions or negligence. The process can be quite multifaceted. Fortunately, our attorneys at Brydon, Swearengen & England P.C. have extensive experience working with clients who need help with personal injury litigation.

Personal injury suits normally begin when a person, known as the plaintiff, files a formal civil complaint against a business, individual, or corporation, known as the defendant. A suit can also be filed against a government agency. The plaintiff must prove the defendant’s negligent behavior or irresponsibility was the primary factor that led to the injury or accident.

However, a plaintiff does not always have to take a defendant to court. When concluding who is actually at fault, the majority of disputes are resolved with an informal settlement. This involves the injured party, insurance providers, and legal representation on both sides. The matter is usually settled through negotiation and followed by a formal written agreement stating that both sides will not pursue any further legal action.  

Our Firm Helps Clients File Successful Personal Injury Cases

To help establish whether you have a feasible personal injury claim or lawsuit, our knowledgeable attorneys will work with you to ascertain:  

  • In addition to any property damage, did you incur a personal injury? A personal injury consists of harm to your mind, emotional state, or body. If your car was hit and sustained damage, but your body and mind did not, there is likely no claim for personal injury.
  • Was another individual or business entity negligent, leading to the injuries you sustained? Legally, negligence is defined as acting in a way that violates a duty you owe to another person or party.  For example, a motorist who hits another car because they were driving while intoxicated and which causes an injury to another person is negligent.
  • Are you able to recover damages? To be able to file a successful personal injury claim, you must have endured financial or personal harm that can be alleviated with monetary damages.

If the three questions above can be answered in the affirmative, our law firm may be able to help you receive a financial award for your injuries.
