How to Claim Bodily Injury From an Accident

Thousands of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents every year. Accidents happen quickly but can have long-lasting effects on a person's life. Many accident victims incur severe physical, mental, and financial damages resulting from a sudden, severe accident. There are several ways that accident victims can recover compensation for damages, such as medical expenses, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other damages, one of which is filing a bodily injury claim.

What is the Difference Between Personal Injury and Bodily Injury?

Personal injury laws allow victims of preventable accidents to pursue compensation from the person responsible for the accident. Like personal injury, which covers injuries sustained as a result of an accident, bodily injury liability, which drivers are required to carry in Missouri and Illinois, pays for injuries a driver causes to other people, as well as medical expenses and wage loss.

Unlike personal injury claims, it's essential to keep in mind that bodily injury coverage only covers up to a certain amount - in Missouri, it is $25,000 per person. Past this amount, you can file a personal injury claim to recover any remaining damages incurred from the accident. However, this can be challenging and requires guidance from an experienced attorney.
