In 2009, the state of Missouri enacted a “strict liability” law meaning that a dog owner is automatically responsible for the injuries caused by their dog. Before 2009, it had to be proven that a dog had a history of violent or dangerous behavior before its owner could be held liable in the event of an attack. Today, a dog owner is liable for the actions of his or her dog in almost all cases no matter its history of behavior. You should contact a St. Louis personal injury lawyer to protect your legal rights after a dog attack.

What If I am Injured in an Automobile Accident?
When you are the victim of an automobile accident you may be able to assert several types of claims. First, under the policy of the driver at fault, you have a claim for compensation for pain and suffering, permanent injuries, health care expenses, lost wages, and for the cost to repair or replace your damaged automobile. The other person’s insurance company may also be responsible for providing you with a rental car during the time it takes to either repair or replace your automobile.
Second, if the responsible driver is uninsured, your own insurance policy provides coverage for you. Therefore, you should collect essentially the same benefits even if the driver at fault is uninsured. Also, your own insurance policy may provide benefits that will pay all of your accident-related health care expenses.
Lastly, you should be aware that your insurance company cannot raise your rates if the accident was not your fault, regardless of whether you make a claim against your policy. Missouri Division of Insurance regulations provide:
“In no event shall an insurer request an increase in premium from any insured in connection with any claim arising out of any accident for which the insured was not at fault.” 4CRS 190- 17.100(3)
