Personal Injury Claims We Manage in High Ridge, MO

Accidents happen all around us and the injuries that victims face are far-reaching. This is why the Halvorsen Klote firm handles 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 number of case types, including:

  • Car and Truck Accidents: Vehicular crashes account for about 1.9 million injuries each year (and about 30,000 fatalities). Most of these accidents include semi trucks, speeding, distracted drivers, drugs and alcohol, and intersections.
  • Premises Liability: These cases usually involve slips and falls, swimming pool accidents, fires, toxic fumes, dog bites, and other hazards that may cause injuries on someone's premises.
  • Workplace Accidents: Accidents on the job can range from repetitive trauma to losing a limb. 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 errors that lead to injuries. May include bad brakes on a car, household appliances, and other everyday goods. Our High Ridge, 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 many other medical issues.

Personal injury cases vary based on the scenario, and whatever financial damages are involved. The personal injury attorneys in High Ridge, MO, 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 part of a semi-truck crash, for instance, it's important to figure out who is to blame. That's where our personal injury attorneys in High Ridge, MO, 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 High Ridge 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: fault and damages. For instance, an individual, company, or employee(s) of a business must perform 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 MO statute of limitations.

What Damages Can Be Recovered For an Injury Case in High Ridge, MO?

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

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" damages may include lost wages, medical expenses, loss of benefits, loss of inheritance, and even the value of goods a victim would have provided if they weren't injured. 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 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 as important for victims to consider. Our High Ridge, MO, injury attorneys will consider pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It is helpful 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.

High Ridge, MO, 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 big insurance companies have a vested interest in limiting their liability and will therefore pressure you into accepting a settlement offer that may not be in your best interests long-term. 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 unfair denials, mountains of paperwork, complicated details, and unexpected obstacles. 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 need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced High Ridge personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have sufficient evidence to appropriately seek damages and prove fault. Contact our firm today.
