Common Personal Injury Claims in St. Louis County, 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 individuals and their families as possible.

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

  • Automotive Accidents: Vehicular crashes account for about 1.9 million accidents each year (and around 30,000 fatalities). Many of these accidents involve large trucks, speeding, distracted driving, DUIs, and intersections.
  • Premises Liability: These claims usually 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's important to contact an experienced accident attorney 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 errors that lead to injuries. May include bad brakes on a car, household appliances, and other everyday goods. Halvorsen Kote's St. Louis County, MO, accident lawyers 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 many other medical issues.

Injury cases vary based on the situation, and whatever financial damages are involved. The personal injury attorneys in St. Louis County, MO, 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 are part of a semi-truck crash, for example, it is key to figure out who is to blame. This is where HK Law's personal injury attorneys in St. Louis County, MO, come into play. Was it the truck driver, the driver's company, the road? That's why our firm has your back.

You may be able to seek damages by either pursuing a claim with the negligent party’s insurance or filing a lawsuit against them in the city of St. Louis County; 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 default on their duty to prevent dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held responsible for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must meet time restrictions set forth under MO statute of limitations.

What Damages Can You Recover For an Injury Claim in St. Louis County, MO?

It is our responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our St. Louis County, MO, 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 St. Louis County, MO, may provide includes:

  • Special Damages: Economic or "special" damages often include any loss of financial earnings, medical expenses, loss of benefits, 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 counted as special damages, which is why it's important to keep track of financial repercussions. Our attorneys help victims organize all of this information.
  • General Damages: While not as clear, general damages are equally important for victims to consider. Our St. Louis County, MO, accident 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.

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.

St. Louis County, MO, 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 into accepting a settlement offer that might 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. In 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 need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced St. Louis County personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have enough evidence to effectively seek damages and prove fault. Contact us now.
