Common Personal Injury Claims in Granite City, IL

Accidents happen all around us and the injuries that victims face are far-reaching. This is why our firm manages personal injury claims of all types, because we want to help victims and their families.

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

  • Car and Truck Accidents: Vehicle-related accidents account for around 1.9 million accidents 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 cases typically involve dog bites, defective products, fires, toxins or chemical leaks, slips and falls, ice, and other hazards that cause injuries on someone's premises.
  • Workplace Accidents: Accidents on the job can range from repetitive trauma to losing a limb. 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, and even design errors that lead to injuries. May include bad brakes on a car, household appliances, and other everyday items. Halvorsen Kote's Granite City, IL, accident attorneys are on your side.
  • Medical Malpractice: Another common cause of injuries, medical malpractice is often related to surgical error, misdiagnosis, prescribing the wrong medication, and several other medical issues.

Personal injury cases vary based on the situation, and whatever financial damages are involved. The personal injury attorneys in Granite City, IL, are here to represent victims and their families.

Who is Liable to Pay Damages?

Damages vary based on a variety of factors based on how, what, where, and why. If you're involved in a semi-truck crash, for instance, it is key to figure out who is to blame. That's where our personal injury attorneys in Granite City, IL, come into play. Was it the truck driver, the driver's company, the road? 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 Granite City 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, an individual, company, or employee(s) of a business must commit a wrongful act or fail at their duty to prevent dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held accountable for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must meet time restrictions set forth by IL statute of limitations.

What Damages Can Be Recovered For an Injury Claim in Granite City, IL?

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

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages can include any loss of financial earnings, 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 include medical and funeral expenses that survivors had to pay for. Any economic impact can be considered special damages, which is another reason 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 Granite City, IL, 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 is 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.

Granite City, 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 big 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 long-term best interests. 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 unfair denials, mountains of paperwork, complicated details, and unexpected obstacles. With 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 need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced Granite City personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have sufficient evidence to effectively seek damages and prove fault. Contact Halvorsen Klote now.
