What is The Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Cases in Missouri?

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.

What Damages Can I Pursue In a Personal Injury Case?

The different kinds of compensation that can be pursued after an accident are divided into three main categories, special, general, and punitive. Special damages compensate for financial losses an individual suffers such as medical bills, future medical expenses and the inability to work. Since special damages are typically easy to quantify and revolve around financial hardship, they are also called “economic damages.”

General damages compensate for the more abstract losses an injury victim faces, including emotional distress, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. These types of damages are also called “non-economic damages.” The state of Missouri does place a limit, or cap, on how much in general damages can be awarded for certain cases. The last type of damages, punitive damages, differ from the first two categories in that their main purpose is to punish the negligent party for their harmful actions. As such punitive damages are not often awarded.
