St. Peters Car Accident Attorney
Missouri Car Crash Lawyer
The cost of a car accident can be significant once costs related to hospitalization, recovery, surgery, medical equipment, and lost wages are considered. Since Missouri is a pure comparative negligence state, you can recover damages even if you are 99% at fault in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident. However, your recovery will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you: if you suffer $100,000 in losses but are found 60% at fault, you can only recover $40,000. As a result, the more fault an insurance company can shift onto you, the less they have to pay in settling your claim. At the Weber Law Firm, L.C., we work with accident investigators and other experts as needed in order to determine the cause of a car accident and protect our client’s interests and rights. When an insurer tries to blame you for an accident, we’re prepared with our own evidence and accident investigation results to establish a balance of power in the courtroom.

What Should I Do if an Insurance Company Calls?
Insurance companies will often try to settle a car accident claim as soon as possible after an accident. Since the full scope of a soft tissue injury may not be known for weeks or months, settling an accident claim quickly reduces the likelihood an insurer will have to pay more later. Additionally, insurance companies realize if they can shift more blame onto you, the injury victim, the less they’ll have to pay. When an insurance agent calls, he or she may ask you about the specifics of your accident. While they may sound sympathetic, they’re interested in getting you to say anything that can later be used against you to shift fault onto you to reduce your claim.
