How Can an Olathe Car Accident Lawyer Help You?

If you have been involved in a car accident, you will certainly be dealing with the other party’s insurance company. The insurance companies have a team of lawyers and professionals working to limit how much they pay out on every claim. Because Missouri is an at-fault car insurance state, the at-fault party’s insurance pays for any damages resulting from a car accident. An experienced Olathe car accident lawyer will investigate the accident, gather evidence, and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. At Dollar, Burns, Becker & Hershewe we prepare every case so that we are ready to go to trial if settlement negotiations fail.

Can I Get Compensation If I Was Partially at Fault in the Accident?

Even if you think you might be partially at fault for the accident that caused your injury, you may still be entitled to recover compensation. Missouri is a pure comparative negligence state. That means that even if you were 99% at fault for the accident that caused your injury, you are not barred from seeking compensation. However, your recoverable damages would be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to you. An experienced car accident lawyer in Olathe will fight for you to recover the maximum compensation possible in your case.

What You Can Receive Compensation For

Missouri law allows car accident injury claimants to recover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are tangible expenses incurred as a result of your injury, and non-economic damages refer to intangible losses that result from your injury. Examples of economic damages include medical expenses, lost wages, and lost earning capacity. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, mental anguish, inconvenience, and physical impairment.
