The length of a Missouri case can vary. If your employer agrees on a settlement without the case going to court, the process can be over pretty quickly. Yet, where a hearing with a judge is necessary, cases take upwards of 18 months to resolve.
The average settlement is around $20,000. However, this varies greatly, depending on the severity of the injury and how this affects loss of wages, medical bills, and mental anguish. Payouts typically range from $2,000 to $40,000.
If you live in a fault state, you can only claim compensation for accidents that are not your fault. However, the majority of U.S. states are no-fault states. In these states, you can still claim injuries even if you are responsible for them happening.
