When the average person thinks of the justice system, they think of a criminal court proceeding. However, there are many facets of the legal system that don't include that exact narrative. You may have never thought that you would become a plaintiff in a lawsuit. However, if you were personally injured after a collision with a commercial truck in Missouri, you may be a candidate for personal injury damages.
Personal injury can happen in the most unexpected ways. Many could imagine being injured in a car accident or possibly at work, but most never imagine that they could walk onto a person or company's property and be injured there. Property owners have a duty of care to those who visit their property - especially business owners. Failure to uphold a certain level of care can mean a person could seek damages for injuries rendered.
