Common Personal Injury Claims in Lebanon, MO

Accidents happen all around us and the injuries that victims face are far-reaching. This is why the Halvorsen Klote firm manages personal injury claims of all types, because we want to help as many people as we can that suffer needlessly.

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

  • Automotive Accidents: Vehicular accidents account for around 1.9 million injuries each year (and around 30,000 fatalities). Most of these accidents involve large trucks, speeding, distracted driving, DUIs, and intersections.
  • Premises Liability: These claims often involve slips and falls, swimming pool accidents, fires, toxic fumes, dog bites, 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, poorly issued warning labels or instructions, and even design defects that lead to injuries. May include bad brakes on a car, household appliances, and other everyday items. Our Lebanon, 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.

Personal injury cases vary based on the situation, and whatever financial damages are to follow. The personal injury attorneys in Lebanon, MO, are here to represent victims and their families.

Who is Liable to Pay Damages?

Fault depends on how the accident happened, where it happened, and how bad the damage is. If you are part of a truck accident, for instance, it is important to figure out who is to blame. That's where HK Law's personal injury attorneys in Lebanon, MO, 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 Lebanon courts; however, it may difficult to know if you have a right to a claim in either situation.

In order to succeed, you must meet two essential elements: fault and damages. For example, a person, business, or employee(s) of a company must commit a wrongful act or default on their duty to prevent dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held liable for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must fall within time restrictions set forth by MO statute of limitations.

What Damages Can You Recover For an Injury Claim in Lebanon, MO?

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

  • Special Damages: Economic or "special" 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 add 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. When you begin a case, our team will help you get these items in order.
  • General Damages: While not as clear, general damages are as important for victims to consider. Our Lebanon, MO, injury attorneys 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.

Lebanon, 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 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 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 complicated details, paperwork, unexpected obstacles, and unfair denials. With our extensive experience, we know this process well 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 Lebanon personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have sufficient evidence to appropriately prove fault and seek damages. Contact our firm today.
