In many ways, an accident can be devastating. Whether you’ve broken a bone in a car accident, hurt your back in a slip-and-fall, or suffered any number of personal injuries, a personal injury lawyer can help. 

Following a personal injury, it can be challenging to adapt to the new physical restrictions of your recovery. You may have hospital or doctor’s bills—a financial stressor made worse by time away from work. Finally, dealing with the emotional consequences of knowing your accident was caused by the carelessness of another can leave you despondent. Fortunately, a personal injury lawyer can help you take action. By filing a civil suit against the at-fault party, you could recover damages for your injuries. The process can be challenging, however—between investigating your case, filing paperwork on time, and even negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance company. Let our Kansas City MO personal injury lawyers review your case.


What you need to know about personal injury claims

A variety of physical damages can result from an accident, which is referred to as personal injuries. These injuries can span from minor injuries to severe ones. They are sometimes also classified as potentially permanent or temporary, and either complete or only partly, depending on how much restriction they may place on your ability to work or care for yourself. A personal injury may include:

  • Brain injury
  • Back, spinal cord, or lumbar injury
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Lacerations
  • Burns
  • And others

Personal injury law – also called tort law – is a type of civil law that protects you if you or your property has been damaged by a person’s action, or, possibly, inaction. The cornerstone of personal injury law is a liability for damages arising from negligence: for your claim to be successful, it must be established that a third party acted negligently, causing you harm.

Is it worth filing a claim? When you are injured by another person or group, filing a claim allows you to claim compensation, often referred to as damages, from the at-fault person or group. Depending on the kind and extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to a wide range of damages in a personal injury case. In the past, both economic and non-economic damages were successfully recovered by personal injury victims. Here are a few examples:

  • Temporary or permanent disability 
  • Medical bills, including emergency fees and bills for ongoing treatment 
  • Property damages
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages
  • Pain and suffering

It can be rather difficult to estimate the actual value of your personal injury claim. Getting in touch with a reliable doctor can not only help you get medical attention for your injuries but also get some insight into the economics of medical costs. Based on that medical expense, it is possible to strengthen your case by retaining an attorney who has experience with civil discovery procedures.
