The damages you may be able to collect in a Missouri personal injury claim can include present and future physical, emotional and financial losses stemming from your Missouri accident. You should have a Missouri personal injury lawyer evaluate your case and determine the legitimacy and worth of your claim.

Damages Available Through a Missouri Personal Injury Claim

Keep in mind that present and future physical, emotional and financial costs will be taken into account, but some may be factored out based on the severity of your injuries and other damages, including the following:
  • medical costs;
  • surgical operations;
  • medications;
  • therapy;
  • pain and suffering;
  • disability;
  • loss of life satisfaction;
  • lost income;
  • lost of future earnings (if left disabled from work); and
  • any other impairment or health issues that you have or that are expected to develop (depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, etc.). 

After you have presented your case to your lawyer and have sound evidence that your injuries and damages were the cause of someone else's negligence, the final estimate of your Missouri personal injury claim will depend on your percentage of fault. Determining fault can be a difficult task, and most likely, your defendant will try his or her hardest to put as much blame on you for the accident to reduce the settlement he or she owes to you.

It will be in your best interest to speak with a Missouri personal injury lawyer in order to have a good chance at maximizing your Missouri personal injury claim. An experienced lawyer has worked with numerous cases similar to your own and will help you pursue a fair and full settlement.
