What Damages Can You Recover For a Personal Injury Claim?

It's our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Ballwin, MO, injury attorneys will look at financial damages, punitive measures, and other factors. The two main types of compensation include:

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages may include lost wages, loss of benefits, 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's important to keep track of financial repercussions.
  • General Damages: While not as clear, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Ballwin, MO, injury lawyers consider pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It's advisable to keep a journal that documents your current situation to justify general damages.

Different states have different rules about what is considered viable for compensation. Our Ballwin, MO, injury attorneys will calculate these damages and ensure survivors get the compensation they deserve. You also need to consider statutes of limitations in the state you're in. The general rule is you should pursue a claim within one year, often much sooner, due to evidence. Contact one of Halvorsen Klote's personal injury lawyers now for more info about settling a claim or pursuing a case.

Any tragedy validates at least looking into a lawyer. An experienced injury attorney will help you gather the material you need to get fair compensation for your damages like collect police reports, medical bills, and provide other services. It's important to be proactive after an accident. You can read more in the FAQ section about filing and winning injury claims and hiring a lawyer.


Who is Liable to Pay for Damages?

Who's liable or at fault depends on where the accident happened, any liability coverage, and other factors. For example, if you're 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. It's essential to contact an experienced Ballwin, MO, injury lawyer that will assess the claim and make sure all damages are covered.


Tips for Hiring an Attorney

There are a few things you should look for before you hire an attorney to represent your case. Below are a few questions to get you started:

  • What kind of clients do you work with? You need to know if you are contacting the right kind of firm (size, experience, etc.) to handle your case.
  • What kind of experience do you have? Many firms should be able to provide you with case results and reviews.
  • How much does your firm charge? Lawyer fees are a big concern. In tort law, most firms charge on a contingency basis (services are free and a percentage of any victory is awarded to the client). If we don't win, you don't pay.
