Personal Injury Claims We Manage in Cottleville, MO

Whether your accident happened on the streets of Cottleville or in your very own home, injuries that are not your fault can happen anywhere at any time. This is why the Halvorsen Klote firm manages so many different kinds of cases, because we want to help victims and their families.

Halvorsen Klote is available and willing to take on a series of case types, including:

  • Automotive Accidents: Vehicle-related crashes account for an average of 1.9 million accidents every year (and around 30,000 fatalities). Most of these accidents include semi trucks, speeding, distracted drivers, drugs and alcohol, and intersections.
  • Premises Liability: These claims usually involve slips and falls, swimming pool accidents, fires, toxic fumes, dog bites, and other hazards that can cause injuries on someone's premises.
  • Workplace Accidents: Workplace injuries include chemical exposure, repetitive motion, and even losing a body part. It's important to contact an experienced accident lawyer if you've been injured on the job.
  • Product Liability: Products that malfunction or don't hold up to safety standards can cause serious harm. There may be manufacturing defects, failure to include warnings, or even design errors that lead to injuries. May include bad brakes on a car, household appliances, and other everyday items. Our Cottleville, MO, accident attorneys are on your side.
  • Medical Malpractice: Another common cause behind injuries, medical malpractice is often related to surgical error, misdiagnosis, prescribing the wrong medication, and several other medical issues.

Injury cases vary based on the scenario, and any financial damages are involved. The personal injury attorneys in Cottleville, MO, are here to represent victims and their families.

What is Liability?

Damages vary based on a variety of factors based on how, what, where, and why. If you are involved in a semi-truck crash, for example, it's important to figure out who is to blame. That's where HK Law's personal injury attorneys in Cottleville, MO, come into play. Was it caused by poor road conditions, the trucking company, negligent driving? That's why our firm has your back.

You can recover damages by either filing a personal injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company or by filing a personal injury lawsuit against them in the Cottleville courts; however, it may be hard to determine if you have a leg to stand on in either case.

In order to succeed, you must be able to prove two critical items: fault and damages. For instance, a person, business, or employee(s) of a company must perform a wrongful act or fail at their duty to protect others from dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held accountable for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must fall within time restrictions set forth by MO statute of limitations.

What Damages Can Be Recovered For a Personal Injury Case in Cottleville, MO?

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

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages may include lost wages, medical expenses, loss of benefits, any loss of inheritance, and any goods and services the survivor may have contributed in the future. 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's important to keep track of financial repercussions. Our attorneys help victims organize all of this information.
  • General Damages: More difficult to define, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Cottleville, 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 advisable to document everything you can regarding your health and well-being to justify general damages.

Often, personal injury claims are settled before reaching trial but, if one becomes necessary, we do not hesitate to face large insurance companies to get the amount of compensation you find fair for your injuries.

Cottleville, MO, Personal Injury Attorneys

Often, personal injury claims are settled before reaching trial but, if one becomes necessary, we do not hesitate to face large insurance companies to get the amount of compensation you find fair for your injuries.

These big insurance companies have a vested interest in limiting their liability and will therefore pressure you to make quick decisions on a settlement offer that might not be in your long-term best interests. Without effective legal representation, you may lose out on gaining sufficient compensation to cover your losses.

Furthermore, the personal injury claim process is made up of paperwork, unexpected obstacles, unfair denials, and complicated details. With our extensive experience, we know this process well and want to make it as easy as possible for you.

If you are still unsure if you have a case, an experienced Cottleville personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have sufficient evidence to effectively prove fault and seek damages. Contact our firm now.
