Personal Injury Damages in Earth City, MO
Your case is about more than financial gain; it’s about making things right. Personal injury law was put in place to fairly compensate an injured individual for expenses caused by another person’s negligence, thereby, allowing the victim an opportunity to put their life back together again.

- Rehabilitation and therapy expenses

The precise amount of recoverable damages will depend upon your specific situation, such as the degree of your injuries and how the accident impacted your life.
How to Know if You Have a Personal Injury Case
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 Earth City; 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 fail at their duty to protect others from 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 under MO statute of limitations.
If you are still unsure if you have a case, an experienced Earth City personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can discover if you have enough evidence to appropriately seek damages and prove fault. Contact us now.
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 big insurance companies will do anything they can to limit their liability and will therefore pressure you into accepting a settlement offer that may not be in your best interests long-term. 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 this process well and want to make it as simple as possible for you.
