Who is Liable to Pay Damages?

Damages vary based on a variety of factors based on how, what, where, and why. If you are involved in a truck accident, for instance, it is key to figure out who is to blame. That's where HK Law's personal injury attorneys in Fairview Heights, IL, come into play. Was it the truck driver, the driver's company, the road? That is 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 Fairview Heights 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 meet two essential elements: damages and fault. For example, 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 liable for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must meet time restrictions set forth by IL statute of limitations.

What Damages Can You Recover For an Injury Claim in Fairview Heights, IL?

It's Halvorsen Klote's responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Fairview Heights, IL, accidents attorneys will 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 accident attorney in Fairview Heights, IL, provide includes:

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages may include any loss of financial earnings, medical expenses, lost benefits, any 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 considered special damages, which is why it's important to keep track of financial repercussions. When you begin a case, our team will help you get these items in order.
  • General Damages: Less specific, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Fairview Heights, IL, injury lawyers consider pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It's helpful 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.

Fairview Heights, IL, 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 large insurance companies will do anything they can to limit their liability and will therefore pressure you to make quick decisions on a settlement offer that may 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 complicated details, paperwork, unexpected obstacles, and unfair denials. In our extensive experience, we know the ins and outs of the process and want to make it as easy as possible for you.

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