What Damages Can Be Recovered For a Personal Injury Claim?

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

  • Special Damages: Economic or "special" damages often include any loss of financial earnings, medical expenses, loss of benefits, loss of inheritance, and even the value of goods a victim would have provided if they weren't injured. 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 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 Edwardsville, IL, injury lawyers consider loss of consortium, any emotional trauma due to the accident, pain and suffering, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It's advisable to document everything you can regarding your health and well-being to justify general damages.

Different states often have different rules about what damages are considered viable for compensation. Our Edwardsville, IL, accident lawyers will calculate these damages and ensure injury victims and their families 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 claim within one year, often much sooner, due to evidence (especially medical).

Who is Liable to Pay for Damages?

Who's liable or at fault depends on factors like how the accident happened, where it occurred, and the severity of the accident. For example, if you're involved in a truck accident you may be able to sue the driver for negligence, the trucking company, or even a construction company if there were unexpected hazards.

Common Injury Types

While every accident is different, our lawyers have noticed that many of the Edwardsville, IL accident victims who visit us have dealt with similar personal injuries. 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 agonizing shattered bones that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most commonly occurs in 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 under usual circumstances.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people think that these are minor injuries, these can run the risk of infection if not properly dealt with.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the force and sudden impact of car accidents or falls often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can reduce brain function and potentially cause insomnia and recurring headaches. Many accident victims ignore the likelihood that they might have sustained a TBI, and thus do not get treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most often happens in more serious accidents, like falls from high platforms or high-speed car accidents. The forces from these accidents can damage your organs, and without urgent treatment, these injuries can be life-threatening.
