What Damages Can Be Recovered For an Injury Case?

It is Halvorsen Klote's responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Owensville, MO, accidents attorneys will look at financial damages, punitive measures, and other factors that may have caused physical, mental, and financial harm. The two main types of compensation an accident attorney in Owensville, MO, may provide includes:

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages often include any loss of financial earnings, medical expenses, lost benefits, loss of inheritance, and any goods and services the survivor may have contributed in the future.

Any economic impact can be considered special damages, which is why it is important to keep track of financial repercussions. When you begin a case, our team will help you get these items in order.

Our Owensville, MO, injury lawyers consider loss of consortium, any emotional trauma due to the accident, pain and suffering, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It is helpful to keep a journal that documents your current situation to justify general damages.

Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our attorneys have found that most of the Owensville, MO accident victims who visit us have suffered similar personal ailments. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on hands or feet that exits more as a distraction than anything, to agonizing shattered bones that necessitate extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most often is caused by car accidents, and is defined as when a sudden force or change in direction causes muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would under usual circumstances.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people believe these to be minor injuries, these can present the risk of infection if not immediately dealt with.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and violent impact of car accidents or falls often causes concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially cause insomnia and constant headaches. Many accident victims brush off the likelihood that they might have sustained a TBI, and thus put off therapy until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most often happens in more severe accidents, like falls from high platforms or high-speed car accidents. The forces from these accidents can affect your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
