What Damages Can Be Recovered For an Injury Case?

It is Halvorsen Klote's responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our St. Louis County, MO, accidents attorneys will look 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, provide includes:

  • Special Damages: Economic or "special" damages often 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 include medical and funeral expenses that survivors had to pay for. Any economic impact can be counted as special damages, which is another reason why it is 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 as important for victims to consider. Our St. Louis County, MO, injury lawyers will consider pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It's advisable to keep a journal that documents your current situation to justify general damages.

Common Injury Types

While every accident is different, our attorneys have found that a substantial number of the St. Louis County, MO accident victims who come to us have dealt with similar personal ailments. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can vary from small breaks on fingers or toes that exits more as a distraction than anything, to agonizing compound fractures that require extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most commonly is caused by car accidents, and happens when a sudden force or change in direction forces muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would in normal conditions.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people consider these minor injuries, these can present the risk of infection if not immediately treated.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the force and sudden impact of car accidents or falls often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially present insomnia and constant headaches. Many accident victims brush off the possibility that they could have suffered a TBI, and thus put off treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly happens in more severe accidents, like high-speed car accidents or falls from great heights. The forces from these accidents can damage your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can be life-threatening.
