Most Common Personal Injury in Ferguson, MO

Car Accidents

In 2011, there were nearly 400 traffic accidents in Ferguson which resulted in 1 fatality and 116 injuries. The average resident’s work commute is less than 30 minutes. Given the city’s small these figures are concerning. Road safety is an ongoing issue across the country, and cities like Ferguson who lack the manpower of a large suburb are especially vulnerable. Study these tips to ensure your own safety on the road:

  • Always wear your seatbelt when in your car.
  • Know who to call in an emergency. It’s usually 911.
  • Keep your fuel and oil levels adequately high.
  • Don’t ever pass another vehicle on the left side.
  • Talk to your local license office to make sure your car is in law-abiding condition.
  • Always have your license, proof of insurance, and vehicle registration in your car.

 

Ferguson Injury Lawsuit: Everything You Need To Know

Personal injury lawsuits aren’t fun, but sometimes they’re necessary. In this section, we’re going to go over what the civil lawsuit process will look like.

After an accident, you call an injury attorney. They’ll look at your situation and decide if a lawsuit is in order. If it is, they’ll then gather evidence, assess your damages, and build a case that demonstrates liability. Damages can be either compensatory or punitive. If someone was killed in the accident, the lawsuit might be a wrongful death suit. Injuries that came from the negligence of the property owner may result in a premises liability case.

Your attorney may achieve a settlement out of court. If that doesn’t happen, your case is likely to end up at trial. A winning case will award you compensation for your damages.

Mike Brown Incident

In 2014, 18-year-old Ferguson resident Mike Brown was fatally shot by police officer Darren Wilson. The incident sparked widespread outrage over alleged racial motivations for the killing, while others, like Wilson himself, claimed his actions were justified. Ferguson quickly became a center for protests and general unease.

Wilson ultimately was not indicted for the death of Brown which further escalated demonstrations in Ferguson and beyond. Months after the altercation between Wilson and Brown, Ferguson was not the same town that it was prior. The police were militarized, looters set fires and destroyed local businesses, and media outlets adopted the city as their newest political weapon. Unfortunately, the distressing aura that surrounded Ferguson when Mike Brown died is still a part of the town, and the event will never be forgotten. If you find yourself in a similar situation, contact a Ferguson injury lawyer.
