Talented Missouri Attorneys Seek Rightful Compensation for Injury Victims

Skilled representation for slip and fall incidents, auto crashes, and other accidents

When negligence causes you injury or claims the life of someone you love, you have the right to take legal action against the person or party responsible. At Playter Trial Lawyers, we serve accident victims throughout Missouri, and we are ready to work tirelessly to get you the full, fair compensation you deserve. Whether you need help negotiating with an insurer or filing a claim directly against a negligent party, our competent legal team can advocate for your right to appropriate damages.

Seeking damages after a motor vehicle accident

Since Missouri follows a pure comparative fault rule, the amount of damages you can recover for your injuries is proportionate to your level of liability in the accident. For example, if the court awards you $100,000 for your injuries but finds you 30 percent at fault for the crash, you would only be able to recover $70,000.

The state also uses an at-fault car insurance system. This means that if you are injured in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, you must seek damages from the other driver’s insurance company. Depending on the circumstances of your motor vehicle, truck, or motorcycle accident, any of the follow parties may be at fault:

  • Driver
  • Vehicle manufacturer
  • Local municipality
  • Trucking company

We carefully review the details of your case and consult with accident reconstruction specialists to identify who is responsible for causing your harm.

Taking action after suffering a medical malpractice injury

If you believe you are the victim of medical malpractice, our lawyers can guide you through the process of filing a lawsuit for harm caused by:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Surgical errors
  • Birth mistakes
  • Medication mistakes

Since the statute of limitations for medical malpractice in Missouri is only two years from the date of your injury, it is vital that you seek counsel without delay. If you fail to act within the statute of limitations, you may be barred from recovering compensation.

Proving fault in slip and fall accidents

Slip and fall accidents can cause broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and even death. If you or a loved one sustains injury on someone else’s property, you may have grounds for a premises liability case. After evaluating the circumstances of your accident, our attorneys can quickly discern if the following elements of owner negligence are present:

  • Duty — The property you slipped and fell on was owned by the defendant.
  • Notice — The defendant should have been aware of the hazardous condition.
  • Dangerous condition — Your slip and fall accident was caused by a perilous condition.
  • Damages — As a result of the unsafe property condition, you suffered actual damages.

If you trip on uneven pavement, slip on a slick surface, or fall because of a broken handrail, we can investigate your case, identify the property owner, and help you file a claim for reimbursement.

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit

There is nothing more painful than losing a loved one. However, if negligence claimed the life of someone you love, you may be able to recover compensation for funeral expenses, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Whether you are able to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Missouri depends on your relation to the deceased. Our compassionate legal team can assess your case and determine if you’re eligible to take legal action as a wrongful death survivor.
