What Kind Of Damages Can I Claim After A Car Accident?

Posted on

After a car accident, you want the help of an experienced auto accident attorney who can assist you in recovering the compensation you deserve while you focus on recovering. When you suffer monetary losses due to an accident, you may be entitled to recovering economic damages, including covering the cost of medical bills and any lost wages incurred after the accident. Property damage to your vehicle would also be considered part of economic damages.

Non-economic damages directly correlate to the liable party in an auto accident and include compensation for physical impairment. In cases where an accident results in a family member’s death, loss of companionship damages may be awarded. In cases where the at-fault party in an accident is clear, victims can recover full compensation for their damages. When more than one party is found responsible for an accident, comparative fault is used to determine the degree of each party’s fault in the accident. For example, one driver might be 70% at fault in an accident while the other party is only liable for 30% of the damages.

At Schultz & Myers, our St. Louis auto accident attorneys have experience filing auto accident claims and recovering the maximum amount for your monetary losses. Before settling with the insurance company, you should contact our office for a free consultation to discuss your legal options.
