Personal Injury Compensation in St. Martins, 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 a hurt individual for expenses caused by another person’s negligence, thereby, allowing the victim an opportunity to put their life back together again.
After consulting with an experienced St. Martins personal injury lawyer, you might be able to hold the negligent entities liable for present and future compensation.
These personal injury damages include, but are not limited to:
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Rehabilitation and therapy expenses
- Past, present, and future medical expenses from injuries
- Mental or emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
The maximum amount of recoverable damages is different for everyone and will depend upon the degree of your injuries and how the accident impacted your life.
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. Martins 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 instance, a person, business, or employee(s) of a company must perform a wrongful act or fail at their duty to prevent dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held accountable for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must meet time restrictions set forth by MO statute of limitations.
If you need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced St. Martins personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have enough evidence to effectively prove fault and seek damages. 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 have a vested interest in limiting 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 complicated details, paperwork, unexpected obstacles, and unfair denials. Using our extensive experience, we know the ins and outs of the process and want to make it as seamless as possible for you.
