What Damages Can You Recover For a Personal Injury Claim?

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

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages may include any loss of financial earnings, lost benefits, any 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 considered special damages, which is why it's important to keep track of financial repercussions.
  • General Damages: While not as clear, general damages are equally important for victims to consider. Our Eureka, MO, accident attorneys will 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 keep a journal that documents your current situation to justify general damages.

Different states often have different rules about what damages are considered viable for compensation. Your Eureka, MO, injury lawyers will calculate these damages and make sure survivors receive the compensation they deserve. You also need to consider statutes of limitations in the state you're in. The general rule is you should file a case within one year, often much sooner, due to evidence. Call one of our injury attorneys now for additional information 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 negotiate with insurance agencies, file through medical records, get witness testimonies, 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 injury claims and hiring a lawyer.


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 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 Eureka, MO, injury lawyer that can assess the claim 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.
  • What kind of experience do you have? Any firm should be able to provide you with client testimonials and results.
  • How much does your firm charge? 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.
