The overwhelming majority of people experience an unexpected accident or injury at some point in their lives. For many, itâ€™s an auto accident. For others, itâ€™s a workplace injury or a slip and fall.
Fortunately, relatively few of these accidents produce catastrophic injuries. Most are more moderate in nature, but that doesnâ€™t mean they donâ€™t cause real hassle and hardship.
In fact, the majority of personal injury lawsuits in Missouri are for non-catastrophic injuries. The damages in these claims might include:
- Pain & anguish
- Emotional distress
- Time away from work (lost income)
- Medical costs (doctorâ€™s bills, hospital visits, surgeries, etc.)
- Medication costs (prescriptions, refills, medical devices)
- Property damage
Sadly, though, some injuries are so severe that they forever a change a personâ€™s life â€” or even take it. These are among the very worst personal injury accidents, and they happen right here in Missouriâ€¦ even in Richmond.
Catastrophic personal injury damages might include:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord damage
- Brain damage (traumatic brain injury, or TBI)
- Heart attack, pulmonary embolism, arterial dissection, or stroke
- Long-term disability
- Ambulance fees
- Diminished enjoyment of life
- Future inability to earn an equivalent income
- Wrongful death (loss of a relativeâ€™s emotional or financial support)
- Funeral or burial expenses
In either of these types of accidents, no matter which specific damages you have incurred (and there are many more besides those listed here), you may be entitled to significant monetary compensation for your losses pursuant to the laws of Missouri.
Unfortunately, insurance companies are notorious for fighting victims on the reimbursement they deserve â€” even while the victims are still suffering. Thatâ€™s because insurance companies are businesses, and they have a duty to their shareholders. But with an aggressive lawyer on your side, you can remind them that your rights donâ€™t take a backseat to their shareholdersâ€™ wallets.
