Many people worry about how to pay medical bills and obtain compensation for injuries and property damage caused by their auto accidents. For over 30 years, I’ve been fighting for victims of car, truck and motorcycle accidents in the Saint Charles, Missouri area. At The Rubin Law Firm LLC, I will work hard to help you get the compensation you deserve.
If you are in a car accident, call the police immediately and file an accident report. If you are injured, seek medical help as soon as possible. After your immediate medical and safety concerns are handled, an experienced attorney can help you obtain compensation for:
Missouri follows the rule of fault-based recovery in auto accident cases, which means that if you are injured by another person, you can file a claim against their insurance company or seek damages from them directly. Under the state’s comparative negligence system, your own negligence is not a bar to recovery, but your compensation will be limited to the defendant’s percentage of fault. No matter how complex your case or what your level of fault, a committed attorney is your best ally when going up against the insurance companies and other parties.
Insurance companies have an interest in settling cases for a reduced amount or claiming that their insured was not responsible for the crash. This is especially true when the truck driver and the employer argue about who is responsible for an accident. My numerous trials and 34 years of in-court experience has made clear the importance of gathering evidence to show who is at fault, including:
I can help to identify vital pieces of evidence and develop a strong strategy for your case.
When a motorcycle is struck by another motor vehicle, the motorcycle driver can experience paralysis, traumatic head injury or other catastrophic injuries. Because of this potential, Missouri requires riders to wear protective headgear while the motorcycle is in motion. However, this leads some people to think that they cannot be compensated for their injuries if they were not wearing a helmet at the time. Fortunately, the state allows recovery for a motorcycle accident even in this scenario, although the failure to wear a helmet is comparative negligence that will reduce the compensation. I work to ensure that my clients are not unfairly penalized when they are injured because of someone else’s negligence.
