Indications That You May Have a Personal Injury Case

Have you ever...
  • Been in a car accident caused by another party?
  • Slip and fell in a restaurant on a slippery floor they failed to alert patrons about?
  • Been in a boating accident that was caused by a boater that was drinking while boating?
  • Been sexually harassed by a co-worker?
  • Been injured on the job?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, there's a possibility you could have a personal injury case, but let's dive into that a little further. Our personal injury lawyers at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to give you a few questions to ask yourself to determine whether or not you might have a case in this week's blog.

Were you involved in any sort of accident that was caused by someone else?

Medical bills add up QUICKLY and if there's a chance you could get the compensation YOU DESERVE for an injury you did not cause, you need to call an experienced Missouri attorney as soon as possible.

Are you feeling any sort of emotional distress for your accident?
Pain isn't always physical. If you were involved in a HORRIFIC accident caused by another person, you may have some emotional distress, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc. This is something that you COULD get compensation for as well.

Was any of your property damaged in this accident?
Whether your car was destroyed or badly damaged in a car accident, you are entitled to compensation for those repairs, along with any other sorts of property you may have had that were damaged.

Is Divorce Really The Right Decision For You?

No one ever plans on getting divorced when they marry someone, but it just happens sometimes. Unfortunately, divorce rates will very likely spike by the time COVID-19 is over. People are feeling restless and having been stuck in the house together for so long can really show your true colors. Some couples may think they aren't compatible anymore. If this sounds like you and you are considering divorce, ask yourself, is divorce really the right decision for you? Our divorce lawyers at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to give you a few things to think about before making the official decision to get divorced in this week's blog. If you are strongly considering getting divorced, you likely have a lot of questions. Get them answered by a Missouri divorce attorney you can count on. Gibbons Law Firm can be reached at (573) 348-2211 and your first consultation is FREE.


FINANCIAL RAMIFICATIONS
Be prepared to be completely honest about your financial status, because you will likely have to reveal a lot of information pertaining to your income if you choose to get divorced. Property or assets accumulated during a marriage are typically considered "marital property" - that is, both spouses share equal ownership of the assets. Property and assets accumulated prior to the marriage are considered individual property. During the divorce, the court will:
  • Strive to divide the marital assets in a manner that is fair and equitable. In order for this to be possible, the court will have to know the full financial value of all shared (and likely all individual) assets. 
  • If your spouse handles the finances and you are not aware of what your financial picture currently looks like, we recommend that you educate yourself in this arena prior to beginning the divorce process.
CHILD CUSTODY
If you have children and plan to get divorced, go into this process knowing that the court rules in the best interest of the child. It's in your best interest to cooperate with your ex and be as cordial as possible throughout this entire process for the sake of your children. Don't under any circumstances speak poorly about your ex in front of the children or try to influence how your child feels about your ex (their other parent) in a negative way. This will likely get back to the court and hurt your chances for custody.


TIME COMMITMENTS
Some divorces take much longer to complete than others. Don't assume your divorce will need to automatically be filed in court. We recommend that you start with mediation. If that doesn't work, you can always switch to litigation at a later date.
