What Damages Can You Recover For a Personal Injury Case?

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

  • Special Damages: Economic or "special" damages often include any loss of financial earnings, medical expenses, lost 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 considered 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: More difficult to define, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Bourbon, MO, injury lawyers 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.

Common Injury Types

While every accident is different, our lawyers have discovered that many of the Bourbon, MO accident victims who visit us have had similar personal injuries. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can vary from small breaks on fingers or toes that are more as a nuisance than anything, to agonizing shattered bones that require 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 causes muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would in normal conditions.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people consider these minor injuries, these can potentially cause infection if not adequately treated.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the force and violent impact of car accidents or falls often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially present problems sleeping and constant headaches. A large number of people who have been in accidents brush off the possibility that they might have suffered a TBI, and thus do not get therapy 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 cause damage to your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can be life-threatening.
