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

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

  • Automotive Accidents: Vehicular accidents account for about 1.9 million injuries every year (and around 30,000 fatalities). Many of these accidents include semi trucks, speeding, distracted drivers, drugs and alcohol, and intersections.
  • Premises Liability: These claims typically involve dog bites, defective products, fires, toxins or chemical leaks, slips and falls, ice, and other hazards that may cause injuries on someone's premises.
  • Workplace Accidents: Workplace injuries include chemical exposure, repetitive motion, and even losing a body part. It is 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 defects that lead to injuries. May include bad brakes on a car, household appliances, and other everyday items. Halvorsen Kote's Edwardsville, IL, 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 many other medical issues.

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

What is Liability?

Fault depends on how the accident happened, where it happened, and how bad the damage is. If you are involved in a truck accident, for instance, it's key to figure out who is to blame. That's where HK Law's personal injury attorneys in Edwardsville, IL, come into play. Was it caused by poor road conditions, the trucking company, negligent driving? That is why our firm is here.

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 Edwardsville 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 default on their duty to protect others from dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held liable for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must meet time restrictions set forth by IL statute of limitations.

What Damages Can Be Recovered For a Personal Injury Case in Edwardsville, IL?

It is our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Edwardsville, IL, accidents attorneys look at financial damages, punitive measures, and other factors that may have caused financial and physical harm. The two main types of compensation an injury attorney in Edwardsville, IL, may provide includes the following:

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages can include lost wages, medical expenses, lost benefits, 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 is important to keep track of financial repercussions. When you begin a case, our team will help you get these items in order.
  • General Damages: More difficult to define, general damages are equally important for victims to consider. Our Edwardsville, IL, injury attorneys consider pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It's advisable to keep a journal that documents your current situation to justify general damages.

In many cases, claims for personal injury are settled out of court before ever reaching the trial stage; however, we will never hesitate to go to trial if large insurance companies refuse to pay what’s fair.

Edwardsville, IL, Personal Injury Attorneys

In many cases, claims for personal injury are settled out of court before ever reaching the trial stage; however, we will never hesitate to go to trial if large insurance companies refuse to pay what’s fair.

These large insurance companies will do anything they can to limit their liability and will therefore pressure you into accepting a settlement offer that might not be in your best interests long-term. Without someone on your side, you could lose out on getting sufficient coverage for your losses.

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

If you are still unsure if you have a case, an experienced Edwardsville personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can discover if you have enough evidence to effectively seek damages and prove fault. Contact us now.
