How You Can Be Compensated

Recovering from injuries is costly. Not just financially, but you also bear the mental and emotional costs of suffering from an accident that you didn’t cause or expect. You might be entitled to receive compensation from the person who injured you in the form of damages.

There are several types of damages that you may pursue in a settlement or in court.

  • Economic damages – This compensation covers costs associated with medical bills you’ve received as a result of the immediate medical attention and treatment you required. Depending on your injuries, you may need an extended hospital stay or continued and extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, or therapy. You may need to take prescription medication to mediate the pain from your injuries. All of the costs associated with this can be paid to you in economic damages. These damages also cover lost wages and any decrease in your future wages or earning potential as a result of your injuries.
  • Noneconomic damages – These damages cover less tangible costs. Noneconomic damages are compensation for the mental and emotional losses your injuries have caused you. One element of the losses covered by these damages is the mental stress commonly known as “pain and suffering.” You deserve compensation for the emotional effects of the accident that caused your injuries just as much as the physical effects. Your quality of life may be diminished as a result of your injuries, and your recovery can impact your family as they try to support you. Even once your physical injuries are managed, you may have long-term mental anguish from the experience of what you’ve gone through. You may receive noneconomic damages for all of this.
  • Punitive damages – These are awarded in rare instances as punishment for a person who has intentionally injured someone or acted recklessly. This is an award that can only be made by a judge or jury. You must prove your entitlement to these damages with clear and convincing evidence.

In addition, if you attempt to seek compensation for your injuries in court, you must file your lawsuit within the statute of limitations. This is the amount of time you have from the date of your accident to file. In Missouri, the statute of limitations is five years for personal injury cases.
