Types of Personal Injury Claims

Your personal injury lawyer in St. Louis must have complete mastery and knowledge of all types of cases that injury victims may face. Distinguishing between a car accident case and truck accident or medical malpractice case may seem simple, but there are many different laws and unique statutes in Missouri and Illinois that apply to each type of case and could easily become the deciding factor in the success of your case. The legal knowledge and technical strategy and expertise necessary to successfully maneuver each type of Missouri and Illinois tort injury cases, whether a medical malpractice claim, a pedestrian accident, or a premise liability situation, are only possible with years of education, training, and real claim experience that a vehicle-accident-only attorney may not possess.

When you choose a personal injury lawyer with Burger Law, you benefit from our team's wealth of exceptional experience with every facet of personal injury law because we actively practice every area of personal injury law. We realize that case types often overlap, and having experience with each type of claim gives our team the perfect preparation to successfully fight for our clients' rights and recoveries. Listed below are overviews of the case types we most commonly pursue.

Common Personal Injury Claims

  • Car Accident Claims - Car Accidents are typically caused by negligent actions. Our Car Accident Lawyers in St. Louis and Missouri use their knowledge of state laws and scientific facts to take on each car accident claim, and use different methods to gather evidence depending upon the type of claim
  • Truck Accident Claims - Commercial Trucks can weigh anywhere from 30,000lbs to 80,000lbs. A car weighs 5,000lbs. This is a massive difference in force and weight. When a trucking vehicle or a commercial vehicle collides with a small sedan, the accidents always cause serious injuries.
  • Medical Malpractice Claims - Medical Malpractice can happen when a doctor, healthcare professional, hospital, or other health service center acts in a negligent way or neglects to provide a standard of reasonable care, and this action leads to the patient being injured. This can happen in the form of errors in diagnoses, missed diagnosis, error in treatments, errors in aftercare or errors in health management.
  • Workers Compensation Claims - Employers that care little for their employees health are going to push them to return to work as quickly as possible, or be fired. They will refer you to company-friendly doctors or physicians who help them protect their bottom line. This is a ridiculous tactic that many businesses use to cheat injured workers out of their compensation. Our Work Comp Lawyers in St. Louis and throughout Missouri know every tactic your employer will use to cheat you, and will fight for your rights every step of the way.
  • Wrongful Death Claims - Wrongful Death claims are never easy. No one should ever lose a loved one because of an accident that is caused by another’s negligence. There is always a trail of facts or reports that show negligence on the part of the business or individual who is responsible for your loved one’s death. We will fight for your family’s rights and make sure that those who caused your loved one’s death are punished to the maximum extent of the law.
