Beware of wanting to accept the first offer the insurance company makes. It’s usually not their best.
They like quick and easy lowball settlements because it saves them money.
Quick settlements are usually not the best solution to your financial concerns. Accepting a quick settlement might be tempting because the bills are piling up now.
The insurance company knows you are hurting for money, and they’re hoping you’ll jump at the first lowball offer they make. But if you do, it will likely hurt you in the long run.
Accepting an offer means you can never go back and ask for more money if it turns out that you have permanent injuries or a long-term disability.
What Damages Can a Personal Injury Attorney in Missouri Win for You?
The damage award you could win depends on what type of claim you have. The damages in an auto accident claim are different from a Social Security Disability or Workers Compensation claim.
However, if you are an accident victim due to the negligence of another person, you could receive compensation for:
- Lost wages;
- Lost future earnings;
- Medical expenses;
- Future medical expenses;
- Mental anguish;
- Loss of enjoyment of life; and
- Pain and suffering.
In limited cases, you might be able to get punitive damages as well.
Remember that each negligence claim is different. Certain damages might be available in one case but not another.
Only a knowledgeable Missouri personal injury attorney can explain the damage awards available to you.
