What Damages Can You Recover For an Injury Claim?

It is Halvorsen Klote's responsibility to make sure our clients receive fair compensation for their injuries. Our Wardsville, 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 Wardsville, MO, may provide includes:

  • Special Damages: Special or "economic" 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 counted as special damages, which is 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 equally important for victims to consider. Our Wardsville, MO, accident lawyers will consider pain and suffering, emotional trauma, loss of enjoyment, and other long-lasting concerns post-injury. It's helpful to keep a journal that documents your current situation to justify general damages.

Different states often have different laws about what kinds of damages are considered viable for compensation. Our Wardsville, MO, accident attorneys will calculate these damages and ensure survivors receive the compensation they deserve. You also need to consider statutes of limitations in the state the accident occurred in. The rule of thumb is that you should file a case within one year, often much sooner, due to evidence (especially medical).

Who is Liable to Pay for Damages?

Who is liable or at fault depends on factors like how the accident happened, where it occurred, and the severity of the accident. For example, if you're involved in a truck accident you may be able to sue the driver for negligence, the trucking company, or even a construction company if there were unexpected hazards.

Common Injury Types

While every accident is different, our lawyers have found that a substantial number of the Wardsville, MO accident victims who work with us have suffered similar personal injuries. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on fingers or toes that exits more as a nuisance than anything, to painful shattered bones that necessitate 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 real life.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people consider these minor injuries, these can run the risk of infection if not immediately dealt with.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the force and violent impact of falls or auto accidents often causes concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially present insomnia and recurring headaches. Most people who have been in accidents are not aware of the possibility that they could have sustained a TBI, and thus put off treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly occurs in more severe accidents, like high-speed car accidents or falls from great heights. The forces from these accidents can cause damage to your organs, and without urgent treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
