What Damages Can You Recover For a Personal Injury Case?

It's our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Quincy, 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, 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 why it is important to keep track of financial repercussions.
  • General Damages: Less specific, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Quincy, MO, accident lawyers 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 is considered viable for reimbursement. Our Quincy, MO, injury attorneys 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 rule of thumb is that you should file a case within one year, often much sooner, because of evidence. Call one of Halvorsen Klote's personal injury attorneys today for additional information about settling a claim or opening 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 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 Quincy, 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 typically represent? You need to know if you're 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 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.
