What Damages Can Be Recovered For a Personal Injury Case?

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

  • Special Damages: Economic or "special" damages can 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 is important to keep track of financial repercussions. When you begin a case, our team will help you get these items in order.
  • General Damages: While not as clear, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Fayette, MO, accident attorneys will consider pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment, 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.

Common Injury Types

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

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on hands or feet that serve more as a nuisance than anything, to painful compound fractures that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition 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 believe these to be minor injuries, these can potentially cause infection if not adequately treated.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and sudden impact of falls or auto accidents often causes concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially cause insomnia and constant headaches. Most accident victims ignore the likelihood that they could have sustained a TBI, and thus delay 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 immediate treatment, these injuries can be life-threatening.
