What Damages Can Be Recovered For a Personal Injury Case?

It's Halvorsen Klote's responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries.

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages may include any loss of financial earnings, medical expenses, lost benefits, loss of inheritance, and even the value of goods a victim would have provided if they weren't injured.

Common Injury Types

While every accident is different, our attorneys have found that many of the Jefferson City, MO accident victims who work with us have dealt with similar personal ailments. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can vary from small breaks on extremities that are more as a nuisance than anything, to agonizing shattered bones that necessitate extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is an ailment that most often occurs in 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 properly cared for.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and sudden impact of falls or auto accidents often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially cause problems sleeping and recurring headaches. Most people who have been in accidents ignore the possibility that they could have sustained a TBI, and thus put off treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most often occurs in more serious accidents, like high-speed car accidents or falls from great heights. The forces from these accidents can damage your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
