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 Lebanon, MO, accidents attorneys will 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 Lebanon, MO, may provide includes:

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages can include any loss of financial earnings, medical expenses, loss of benefits, any loss of inheritance, and any goods and services the survivor may have contributed in the future. You can also add medical and funeral expenses that survivors had to pay for. Any economic impact can be counted as special damages, which is why it is important to keep track of financial repercussions. Our attorneys help victims organize all of this information.
  • General Damages: More difficult to define, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Lebanon, MO, injury attorneys 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.

Different states often have different laws about what damages are considered viable for reimbursement. Our Lebanon, MO, accident attorneys will calculate these damages and make sure survivors get the compensation they deserve. You should also consider statutes of limitations in the state the accident occurred in. The rule of thumb is that you should file a case within one year, usually much sooner, due to evidence (especially medical).

Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our lawyers have noticed that most of the Lebanon, MO accident victims who come to us have had similar personal injuries. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can vary from small breaks on hands or feet that are more as a nuisance than anything, to agonizing compound fractures that require extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is an ailment that most often occurs in car accidents, and is defined as when a sudden force or change in direction forces muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would in real life.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people think that these are minor injuries, these can run the risk of infection if not adequately treated.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and violent 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 problems sleeping and constant headaches. Most accident victims are not aware of the possibility that they might have suffered a TBI, and thus do not get treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly occurs in more severe accidents, like falls from high platforms or high-speed car accidents. The forces from these accidents can cause damage to your organs, and without immediate treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
