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 St. Clair, 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 lost wages, loss of benefits, any 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 another reason why it is important to keep track of financial repercussions.
  • General Damages: Less specific, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our St. Clair, MO, accident attorneys 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 reimbursement. Your St. Clair, MO, injury lawyers will calculate these damages and ensure survivors get the compensation they deserve. You also need to consider statutes of limitations in the state the accident occurred in. The rule of thumb is that you should file a case within one year, usually much sooner, due to evidence. Call one of Halvorsen Klote's personal injury lawyers now for additional information about settling a claim or opening a case.

Any tragedy validates at least looking into a lawyer. A qualified 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 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 contact an experienced St. Clair, 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 before you hire an attorney 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.
