Do All States Have Car Accident Damage Limit?
Following an accident, it can be difficult to figure out the laws and statutes relating to car and truck accidents. Every state has its own rules, which include everything from how long you have to file a car accident claim, who you can sue in an accident, and the settlement amount you can recover for damages related to the accident. The vast majority of states do not have limits on the number of compensatory/economic damages a person can recover, but other damage categories, such as general/non-economic damages, and types of claims, such as medical malpractice, can be subject to limits. The state of Missouri currently does not have a cap on economic or non-economic damages in personal injury cases. However, it does have a cap on damages resulting from medical malpractice claims, including pain and suffering as well as loss of companionship.
