With the roads becoming less safe each year more people are suffering injuries as a result of another driver’s negligence. These injuries often require extensive medical treatment, surgery, and physical therapy. The injuries can cause you to miss work and suffer lost wages. A car accident can be a life-changing event.

Why do I need an Attorney?

First, is important to know that the insurance company is not your friend. The insurance company is a business trying to make a profit. Insurance companies try as hard as they can to pay the LEAST amount on your claim as possible. The Insurance Research Council found that insurance payouts, on average, are 3.5 times higher for clients who have hired an attorney than for those without one. Insurance companies hire teams of employees to reduce and fight payouts to claimants. By hiring the Missouri and Illinois car accident lawyers at Halvorsen Klote you ensure that your claim will be fought aggressively against the insurance company to maximize your payout.

Second, the lawyers at Halvorsen Klote thoroughly investigate each claim. The attorneys investigate your case by:

  • Collecting police and accident reports;

  • Taking photographs of the scene, damage, and injuries;

  • Review Medical Records;

  • Questioning witnesses; and

  • Contacting expert witnesses to review evidence.

 

Value of Personal Injury Claims

The value of every case is different depending on the severity of the injury and circumstances surrounding your case. Each person suffers from a personal injury claim differently. An insurance company will try to pay you the least amount as possible.

The value of a personal injury claim is determined by the economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages typically include:

  • Medical Expenses

  • Future Medical Expenses

  • Lost Wages

  • Loss of Earning Capacity

Non-economic damages commonly include:

  • Pain and Suffering

  • Mental Anguish
