What Damages Can You Recover For an Injury Case?

It's our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Hermann, 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 can include any loss of financial earnings, loss of benefits, 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 considered 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 Hermann, MO, injury 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 often have different rules about what damages are considered viable for compensation. Your Hermann, MO, injury lawyers will calculate these damages and make sure survivors get the compensation they deserve. You should also consider statutes of limitations in the state the accident occurred in. The general rule is you should pursue a case within one year, usually much sooner, due to evidence. Call one of our personal injury attorneys today for more info about settling a claim or pursuing a case.

Most tragedies validate at least looking into a lawyer. A qualified 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 important to reach out to an experienced Hermann, MO, injury lawyer that will assess the case 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 typically represent? You need to know if you are contacting the right kind of firm (size, experience, etc.) to manage your case.
  • Do you have experience with these types of cases? Many firms should be able to provide you with client reviews and testimonials.
  • 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.
