Personal Injury Damages in Farmington, MO
When you seek compensation, it’s not solely about financial gain; it’s about justice. Personal injury law was put in place to fairly compensate an injured individual for expenses caused by someone else, thereby, allowing the victim an opportunity to put their life back together again.
After consulting with an experienced Farmington personal injury lawyer, you might be able to hold the negligent entities liable for future and present compensation.
These personal injury damages include, but are not limited to:
- Past, present, and future medical expenses from injuries
- Rehabilitation and therapy expenses
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
- Reduced earning capacity
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental or emotional distress
- Property damage
The maximum amount of recoverable damages is different for everyone and will depend upon how the accident impacted your life, the degree of your injuries, and more.
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 Farmington; 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, a person, business, or employee(s) of a company must perform a wrongful act or default on their duty to prevent 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 by MO statute of limitations.
If you are still unsure if you have a case, an experienced Farmington personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can discover if you have sufficient 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 large 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 long-term best interests. Without effective legal representation, you may lose out on gaining sufficient compensation to cover your losses.
Furthermore, the personal injury claim process is made up of complicated details, paperwork, unexpected obstacles, and unfair denials. With our extensive experience, we know this process well and want to make it as easy as possible for you.
