What Damages Can You Recover For an Injury Case?

It is our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Creve Coeur, 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 often include lost wages, 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 include medical and funeral expenses that survivors had to pay for. Any economic impact can be counted as special damages, which is why it is important to keep track of financial repercussions.
  • General Damages: Less specific, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Creve Coeur, MO, accident 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.

Different states have different rules about what damages are considered viable for compensation. Your Creve Coeur, MO, injury 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 you're in. The rule of thumb is that you should file 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 essential to be proactive after an accident. You can read more in the FAQ section about filing and winning personal injury claims and hiring a lawyer.


Who is Liable to Pay for Damages?

Who is 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 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 important to reach out to an experienced Creve Coeur, MO, injury lawyer that can assess the case and make sure all damages are covered.


Tips for Hiring an Attorney

There are a few things you should look for when you hire a lawyer to represent your case. Below are a couple of questions to get you started:

  • What kind of clients do you work with? You need to know if you're contacting the right kind of firm (size, experience, etc.) to handle your case.
  • Do you have experience with these types of cases? Many firms should be able to provide you with case results and reviews.
  • How much does it cost for your services? Lawyer fees are an obvious 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.
