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, 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, lost benefits, any 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.
  • General Damages: While not as clear, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Fayette, MO, accident lawyers 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 have different rules about what is considered viable for reimbursement. Your Fayette, MO, injury attorneys will calculate these damages and make sure survivors 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 case within one year, often much sooner, due to evidence. Contact one of Halvorsen Klote's injury attorneys today 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 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 personal injury claims and hiring a lawyer.


Who is Liable to Pay for Damages?

Who is 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 reach out to an experienced Fayette, 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 when you hire a lawyer to represent your case. Below are a few questions to get you started:

  • What kind of clients do you typically represent? 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 client reviews and testimonials.
  • 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.
