What Damages Can Be Recovered For an Injury Claim?

It is our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Town and Country, 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, 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 considered special damages, which is why it is important to keep track of financial repercussions.
  • General Damages: Less specific, general damages are equally important for victims to consider. Our Town and Country, MO, injury lawyers will 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 have different rules about what is considered viable for compensation. Our Town and Country, MO, injury attorneys will calculate these damages and make sure injury victims and their families get 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 claim within one year, usually much sooner, because of evidence. Contact one of Halvorsen Klote's injury lawyers 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 personal 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 is essential to contact an experienced Town and Country, 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 few questions to get you started:

  • What kind of clients do you work with? You need to know if you are contacting the right kind of firm (size, experience, etc.) to manage 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 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.
