Common Personal Injury Cases

Accidents happen every day. Of course, various types are more common than others. Below is a list of common types of personal injury cases followed by descriptions:

  • Premises Liability
    Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises in good condition. When visitors are on their property for business or social reasons, the property owners owe them a duty of care. If this duty of care is breached due to negligence or carelessness, the property owners can be liable for any injury that was sustained by a visitor. These could include slip and falls, electrocution, falling debris, and more.
  • Truck Accidents
    St. Louis is a major crossroads for the Interstate system, and countless semi-trucks pass through the area on a daily basis. When accidents occur, the driver and passengers in the smaller vehicle are at risk of suffering life-changing injuries and in the worst cases, death. Don't let a negligent trucker escape liability for causing your accident.
  • Nursing Home Abuse
    More cases of nursing home abuse are coming to light in St. Louis. When families entrust their elderly loved ones into the care of a nursing home facility, they expect they will be treated with kindness and respect. If they are instead abused and mistreated, guilty parties should be held responsible for their negligent and careless actions.
  • Wrongful Death
    For those who have lost a loved one because of a personal injury accident, no amount of compensation will be able to make up for their death. It is, however, important to seek to hold the guilty party responsible so that another family is not affected in the same manner.

How Much Compensation Will I Recover?

All personal injury claims must be handled on a case-by-case basis. The amount of compensation you can recover will depend on a variety of factors. A knowledgeable and well-seasoned attorney can examine your case and determine what damages should be covered by the negligent individual. Over the years, our team has pursued and recovered financial compensation for the following:

  • Physical harms
  • Physical therapy
  • Medical expenses
  • Doctor visits
  • Chiropractic therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional distresses

In many cases, a victim may also receive a percentage of punitive damages. These damages are paid to the plaintiff by a defendant and are meant to be a form of punishment towards the negligent party responsible for the accident. It is important to keep in mind that it can be extremely difficult to recover punitive damages without the help of a highly trained personal injury attorney.
