Anyone with an injury or damage to their property that was caused by someone else might be able to file a personal injury claim for compensation. Residents of Kansas City and the surrounding area should contact Peterson & Associates, P.C., for help determining if they have a valid claim.
What Does a Personal Injury Claim Do?
A personal injury claim can be filed for various injuries and damages, including pain, suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and other damages. If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, then the plaintiff can recover damages for economic losses such as lost wages and medical expenses as well as non-economic losses such as pain and suffering.
In some cases, it is possible to file a joint claim on behalf of a group of people who have been injured in the same way. This is called a class action lawsuit. This eliminates the problem of having to prove which person was responsible for what injuries so that all of them win compensation without having to fight over who deserves more money.
