A Drunk Driver Hit Me: What are My Legal Options?

In the 1990s, lawmakers and law enforcement agencies began a crackdown to reduce the number of car crashes caused by drunk drivers.

Defenses Insurance Companies Use to Avoid Paying Car Crash Claims

Additionally, car accident victims are entitled to compensation for their noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. Legally, auto insurance companies have a duty to pay this […]

Vicarious Liability in Car Wreck Claims: What is it and Why Does it Matter?

Missouri has one of the highest percentages of uninsured motorists in the country. Additionally, the Show-Me State has one of the lowest auto insurance minimum requirements in the country. Therefore, a number of tortfeasors (negligent drivers) may not have enough insurance coverage to provide fair compensation, especially in catastrophic injury cases. That is one reason […]

Obtaining Compensation Following Alcohol-Related Car Crashes

Prior to the early 1990s, DUIs were rarely enforced on the street, and if they made it to court, they were little more than traffic tickets. Indeed, my own mother was hit by a drunk driver in the early 1980s. It was Christmas Eve, and the sheriff near the small town where we lived in […]

What is a soft tissue injury? Are they real, and can they be permanent?

A soft tissue injury is classified as damage to a person’s muscles, ligaments, or tendons.

The Five Types of Driving Impairment

Most car accidents are not “accidents” at all. In fact, some form of driver error causes over 90 percent of these incidents. This driver error usually involves some form of driving impairment, which is a lack of statutory or reasonable care. Car crash victims often sustain serious injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury, and […]

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DAMAGE TO A VEHICLE AND THE INJURIES SUSTAINED BY OCCUPANTS

In many car accident cases, insurance companies will contend that a lack of visible property damage to the vehicles involved will equate to a lack of significant personal injuries resulting from the accident. However, research demonstrates that this assumption is often incorrect. In many situations that result in serious physical injury to the vehicles occupants, […]

What is a Diminution of Value Claim?

If you have an automobile that is damaged during a car accident, you may have a diminution of value claim.  These claims come from the idea that a vehicle that has been damaged in an accident, but is subsequently repaired, still has an inherently diminished value when compared to its status before the damage occurred […]

How Can You Stack Policies in Personal Injury Cases?

Your auto insurance policy coverage may be higher than you think, due to the ability to stack multiple insurance policies.  In fact, if you’re injured in an accident, and the other driver is at fault and has multiple policies, or the driver has multiple vehicles covered under one policy, stacking may be available.  Both Kansas […]

Understanding Auto Insurance: What If I’m Injured by Someone Without Insurance or Someone Who Flees the Scene?

In some situations, it is difficult or impossible to get the driver who injured you and caused your accident to pay for the damages they caused.
