Motor Vehicle Accident
Missouri Motor Vehicle Accident Law Firm Helps You Understand How Injuries Affect Your Case
What should I do if I sustain an injury during a car accident in St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln County or surrounding areas?
Even if you do not suspect an injury or feel pain right after a car crash, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Some injuries may not display symptoms in the hours or even days following your accident, but a medical professional can determine if there are any internal or underlying medical issues that may require treatment. In the event that you discover injuries related to your accident, seeking treatment early on helps you obtain financial compensation more quickly after you file your personal injury claim. Contact our skilled injury attorneys at the Law Office of Kenneth P. Carp for personalized assistance with this process. We guide you in documenting your injuries and expenses and help you recover money for your injuries and other damages later on. Our firm has been serving St. Louis County, Lincoln County and St. Charles County accident victims since 1990.
What kinds of injuries from motor vehicle accidents allow me to seek compensation?
Auto accidents are responsible for a range of serious injuries that come at great financial and personal cost to you. In some cases, you may be left with a catastrophic injury that has long-term or permanent effects on your quality of life and ability to earn wages. If you have suffered any of the following injuries as a result of a car wreck, motorcycle crash or truck accident, our attorneys provide trusted legal guidance to seek the compensation you deserve.
Brain injury – Brain injuries sustained in a car crash range from a mild concussion to a much more severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These severe brain injuries often result in lifelong disabilities and the need for continuous medical care. Costs for long-term or round-the-clock care can be astronomical.
Spinal injury – Like brain injuries, spinal cord injuries are also frequently debilitating and result in life-long pain, extended medical care and other medical problems, as well as extensive medical bills.
Burn injury – If a vehicle explosion or fire results in a serious burn, you may require expensive and painful surgeries, skin grafts or therapies to treat your injuries.
Broken bones – Broken bones are painful and sometimes require surgery or therapy as part of the necessary treatment and often interfere with your ability to work.
Wrongful death – When driver negligence results in the death of a loved one, you may seek compensation for damages including medical bills, lost earnings and pain and suffering.
If you have suffered a serious injury or wrongful death as a result of a motor vehicle accident, it is important to contact an attorney to discuss your legal rights to compensation as quickly as possible. The state of Missouri has a statute of limitations on when auto accident injury claims and wrongful death claims can be filed:
· Vehicle accident injury claims must be filed within 5 years of the incident
· Wrongful death claims must be filed within 2 years of the incident
To ensure that your case is as strong as possible, our St. Louis County accident attorneys review your case immediately and advise you on how to proceed each step of the way, to recover your damages as quickly as possible.
