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 Weldon Spring, 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, 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 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: While not as clear, general damages are equally important for victims to consider. Our Weldon Spring, MO, accident attorneys will consider loss of consortium, any emotional trauma due to the accident, pain and suffering, 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 damages are considered viable for compensation. Our Weldon Spring, MO, injury attorneys 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 pursue a claim within one year, usually much sooner, due to evidence. Contact one of our injury lawyers now for more info 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 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 Weldon Spring, 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 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.
  • Do you have experience with these types of cases? Any firm should be able to provide you with case results and reviews.
  • 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.
