Personal Injury Damages in St. Louis, MO
When you seek compensation, it’s not solely about financial gain; it’s about justice. Personal injury law was designed to fairly compensate a hurt individual for losses caused by someone else, thereby, allowing the victim an opportunity to put their life back together again.
After consulting with an experienced St. Louis personal injury lawyer, you may be able to hold the appropriate parties accountable for present and future compensation.
These personal injury damages include, but are not limited to:
- Pain and suffering
- Past, present, and future medical expenses from injuries
- Reduced earning capacity
- Mental or emotional distress
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
- Rehabilitation and therapy expenses
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 Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?
You can recover damages by either filing a personal injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company or by filing a personal injury lawsuit against them in the St. Louis courts; 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: damages and fault. For example, a person, business, or employee(s) of a company must commit 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 under MO statute of limitations.
If you are still unsure if you have a case, an experienced St. Louis personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can discover if you have sufficient evidence to effectively seek damages and prove fault. Contact us now.
Often, personal injury claims are settled before reaching trial but, if one becomes necessary, we do not hesitate to face large insurance companies to get the amount of compensation you find fair for your injuries.
These big insurance companies will do anything they can to limit their liability and will therefore pressure you to make quick decisions on a settlement offer that might not be in your long-term best interests. 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 paperwork, unexpected obstacles, unfair denials, and complicated details. With our extensive experience, we know this process well and want to make it as seamless as possible for you.
