A Missouri car accident can impact on your life in many ways. A common question for an injured person, what damages am I entitled to for a Springfield Missouri Car Accident?
A car accident can affect your ability to work. The loss of the ability to work for a period of time, including permanently, is a component of damages often referred to as “economic loss”. Other things that factor into an economic loss are past, current and future medical treatment, out-of-pocket costs and property damage.
It is important that you keep track of your lost time from work and keep receipt for anything you spend money on as a result of your injury. Things such as braces, splints, bandages, copays and paying someone to do things that you took care of yourself prior to the injury. Be accurate and don’t try to add things that are not legitimate costs directly related to the accident.
Just as importantly an auto accident can change how you look at the world. Pain and the limitations the injured experience can affect how you interact with friends or care for family and your ability to enjoy the activities that you did before the accident. In short, it can change everything. This is what some people call “noneconomic loss”. Sometimes this component of damages is called “pain and suffering”.
If you or someone you love have been injured in a Springfield Missouri car accident with and the accident was not your fault, you may have a right to recover compensation for injury including pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages due to missed work and your medical bills.
