Texting Accident and Injury Attorneys in St. Louis That Fight to Get You Max Compensation for Your Injuries
You see motorists texting while driving all the time. Many are teens, but amazingly many are adults who should know better too.
And then one day you’re the victim of their inattentive driving. Unfortunately, Missouri is just 1 of 4 states that hasn’t made it illegal for drivers older than 21 to text and drive.
But, if they did injure you while texting and driving, you can still pursue compensation for the harm they caused you. In fact, you may even be able to get “punitive” damages.
In many personal injury cases, punitive damages are hard to get. That’s because they’re used to punish particularly careless drivers. The idea is they help the offender recognize the harm they caused, discourage them from taking the action again, and discourage others from taking similar actions in the future.
Because texting while driving is a blatant choice by the driver to act irresponsibly, you have a chance of recovering punitive damages.
Insurance Companies Will Still Fight Back – You Need Help from a Personal Injury Lawyer
Even though it seems obvious to you that the other driver’s texting led to your injuries, insurance companies will fight back. They don’t want to pay you any more than they have to – and preferably nothing at all.
They can say the accident was “unavoidable.” They might say you stopped suddenly. They might also try to show you were negligent as well.
That’s where the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer comes in. At Mullen & Mullen, we have more than 3 decades of experience dismantling the fierce defense arguments insurance companies present. One of our lawyers was actually a former litigation supervisor for a major insurance company and has trained the other attorneys the ins and outs of defeating their claims.
