Personal Injury Damages in Union, MO
When you seek compensation, it’s not solely about financial gain; it’s about justice. Personal injury law was designed 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.
After consulting with an experienced Union personal injury lawyer, you may be able to hold the appropriate parties accountable 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 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 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 Union courts; 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 instance, an individual, company, or employee(s) of a business must perform a wrongful act or fail at their duty to protect others from dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held responsible 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 Union personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have sufficient evidence to appropriately 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 big 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 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 paperwork, unexpected obstacles, unfair denials, and complicated details. With our extensive experience, we know this process well and want to make it as simple as possible for you.
