Filing a Car Accident Lawsuit
If filing a car accident lawsuit is determined to be the best course of action, your first step is to draft a complaint. This is a legal document that must prove that your lawsuit is a legitimate one. Our experienced car accident attorney, Christopher Hoffmann, will assist you with this complaint to ensure that it is seriously considered by a judge and not quickly dismissed.
In the meantime, our team will be working on gathering documentation and evidence to help support your claim. This will include medical records and bills as well as information from the accident scene. If the fault of the accident is in question, our legal team can have it reconstructed to prove exactly how the accident occurred.
Once your complaint has been accepted by the Missouri court, you will have to see to it that it is served to the defendant in a timely fashion. He or she should be served in person by a reputable process server. Our firm will take care of these details for you.
After the defendant has received notice, they have a small window of opportunity in which to respond. In the event of a car accident, they will most likely respond by admitting that the accident took place, but denying that they were liable for it. They also have the chance to try and have the claim dismissed, based on the absence of liability in the claim. Another common response is alleging that they do not have enough relevant information to admit or deny the allegations.
Reaching a settlement with the defense is often the best solution for both parties. You want to try and avoid a costly lawsuit, and the defense wants to avoid a possible large award from a jury. Due to this, the importance of highly qualified legal representation cannot be stressed enough. Our team knows exactly what damages you have suffered and will fight to make sure that all are recognized by the defense.
