The statute of limitations for personal injury in the state of Missouri is five years. This means you have five years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you will lose your right to pursue compensation. There are a few exceptions to this, however. If an injury victim is under the age of twenty-first at the time of injury they have five years from their twenty-first birthday to file a claim. Similarly, if someone is mentally incapacitated at the time of the injury the statute of limitations clock will begin once they have recovered. Last if the negligent party leaves the state the time of their absence will not be included in the five-year time limit.

Missouri Fault Laws

Missouri is one of eighteen states that follows an “at-fault” rule, meaning after an accident an injury victim can file a personal injury claim against the negligent party. In “no-fault” states Personal Injury Protection insurance covers compensation for injury claims regardless of who was at fault.

Additionally, Missouri follows a pure comparative fault rule which means that even if you are partially at fault for the accident that led to your injuries you are still eligible to pursue compensation from the negligent party. Unlike some states that follow a comparative fault rule, Missouri allows injury victims to file a claim regardless of how at fault they are for an accident. In all cases, your percentage of fault and your compensation awarded to you would be determined separately and in the end, your compensation would be reduced by the same percentage of fault you are determined to be responsible for.
