If you have suffered a burn injury in the state of Missouri, your ability to recover damages will depend upon the circumstances of your injury. Under Missouri law, as in all other jurisdictions, an individual who has sustained physical injuries caused by the negligent act(s) or omission(s) of another individual or entity may seek compensation from the negligent individual or entity for the injury and any associated damages.
Determining which Missouri court to file a burn injury claim in will depend not only on particular elements of your injury, but also the amount of damages sought. An attorney experienced in personal injury litigation can direct you to the appropriate venue for filing.
Here are a few examples of past cases brought by plaintiffs who sustained burn injuries. In reviewing these cases, please keep in mind that no two cases are the same and past results in similar cases do not guarantee similar results in the future.
