If another motorist’s negligence leaves you injured, don’t delay in consulting with an experienced Kansas City car accident attorney

Common Car Accident Injuries

While a car accident can cause limitless varieties of injuries, the most common include:

  • Broken Bones – A broken bone is an excruciatingly painful injury that is slow to heal, and when it fails to heal properly, it can lead to chronic pain and can even become physically disabling.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries – Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) affect the brain, which means they are not only exceptionally dangerous but are also exceptionally unpredictable. 
  • Spinal Cord Injuries – A spinal cord injury can happen anywhere on the spinal cord, and these injuries are both painful and physically limiting. A severed spinal cord translates to paralysis and lifelong medical needs.

How will my damages be determined? 

Damages is the legal term for the losses you experience as a result of the other driver’s negligence, and they will be calculated in accordance with your medical expenses, your lost earnings, your pain and suffering, and any other losses you suffered as a result of your accident.

What if I was Speeding?

In Missouri, even if you share a percentage of fault, you still have the legal right to pursue compensation for the percentage of your damages that the other driver is responsible for. 

What is driver negligence? 

Driver negligence is what car accident claims hinge upon. Your claim will address the damages you suffered as a result of the other driver’s negligence, which typically takes the form of distraction, impairment, exhaustion, excess speed, or aggression.
