What Damages Can You Recover For an Injury Claim?

It's our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Wildwood, 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 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 counted as special damages, which is why it's important to keep track of financial repercussions.
  • General Damages: Less specific, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Wildwood, 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. Our Wildwood, 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 the accident occurred in. The general rule is you should file a claim within one year, often much sooner, due to evidence. Call one of Halvorsen Klote's injury attorneys now for more info about settling a claim or opening a case.

Any tragedy validates at least looking into a lawyer. An experienced 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 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 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 is important to contact an experienced Wildwood, 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're contacting the right kind of firm (size, experience, etc.) to handle your case.
  • Do you have experience with these types of cases? Many firms should be able to provide you with client testimonials and results.
  • 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.
