Have Questions?

We Have Answers!
  • How long do I have to file a personal injury case in Missouri?
    Every state has a time limit for how long you have to file a personal injury claim called the statute of limitations. In Missouri, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is five years from the date the injury occurred or could have been reasonably discovered. If you fail to file your personal injury lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires then the defendant will most certainly file a motion to dismiss the case.

What Is Distracted Driving?

Any action that prohibits a motorist from driving safely is a distraction. There are three classifications of distractions: visual distractions, physical distractions, and cognitive distractions.

Visual distractions take the driver’s eyes off the road. Physical distractions busy the driver’s hands when they should be steering the vehicle. Finally, cognitive distractions cause the driver’s mind to wander from the task or driving.

Is Texting & Driving Illegal in Missouri?

The reason why texting while driving is one of the most dangerous behind-the-wheel distractions is because a person who is texting and driving is engaging with all three forms of distraction. However, Missouri is one of only two states in the nation where cellphone use while driving is legal for adults over the age of 21.

Fortunately for injured drivers, an action does not have to be illegal for it to be considered negligent. To file a claim against the driver who injured you, our team only needs to prove that they acted negligently by not paying attention to the road or traffic changes.
