What Damages Can Be Recovered For an Injury Case?

It's our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Springfield, 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 Springfield, MO, may provide includes:

  • Special Damages: Economic or "special" damages may include lost wages, medical expenses, lost benefits, any 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. When you begin a case, our team will help you get these items in order.
  • General Damages: Less specific, general damages are equally important for victims to consider. Our Springfield, MO, accident lawyers will consider pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It's helpful to keep a journal that documents your current situation to justify general damages.

Different states have different laws about what kinds of damages are considered viable for reimbursement. Your Springfield, MO, accident attorneys will calculate these damages and ensure survivors receive the compensation they deserve. You should also consider statutes of limitations in the state the accident occurred in. The general rule is you should pursue a case within one year, usually much sooner, because of evidence (especially medical).

Who is Liable to Pay for Damages?

Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our lawyers have discovered that many of the Springfield, MO accident victims who come to us have dealt with similar personal injuries. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can vary from small breaks on extremities that serve more as a distraction than anything, to agonizing compound fractures that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is an ailment that most often is caused by 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 under usual circumstances.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people think that these are minor injuries, these can potentially cause infection if not immediately treated.
  • 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 lower brain function and potentially present problems sleeping and constant headaches. Many accident victims are not aware of the likelihood 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 falls from high platforms or high-speed car accidents. The forces from these accidents can affect your organs, and without urgent treatment, these injuries can be life-threatening.
