What Damages Can Be Recovered For an Injury Case?

It is our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Hermann, MO, accidents attorneys look at financial damages, punitive measures, and other factors that may have caused financial and physical harm. The two primary types of compensation an accident attorney in Hermann, MO, may provide includes:

  • Special Damages: Economic or "special" damages often include lost wages, medical expenses, loss of benefits, loss of inheritance, and any goods and services the survivor may have contributed in the future. You can also include medical and funeral expenses that survivors had to pay for. Any economic impact can be counted as special damages, which is another reason why it's important to keep track of financial repercussions. Our attorneys help victims organize all of this information.
  • General Damages: Less specific, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Hermann, MO, injury lawyers will consider loss of consortium, any emotional trauma due to the accident, pain and suffering, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It's helpful to document everything you can regarding your health and well-being to justify general damages.

Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our lawyers have noticed that most of the Hermann, MO accident victims who work with us have dealt with similar personal ailments. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on fingers or toes that are more as a distraction than anything, to painful compound fractures that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most commonly is caused by car accidents, and happens when a sudden force or change in direction forces muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would under usual circumstances.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people consider these minor injuries, these can potentially cause infection if not adequately cared for.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and sudden impact of car accidents or falls often causes concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can reduce brain function and potentially cause insomnia and constant headaches. A large number of accident victims are not aware of the likelihood that they might have sustained a TBI, and thus do not get therapy until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly occurs in more serious accidents, like high-speed car accidents or falls from great heights. The forces from these accidents can affect your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
