After an accident, you may be entitled to compensation to cover various resulting expenses, personal income losses, and punitive damages.

If an accident caused you to lose access to your source of income, prevent you from working in the future, left you with medical expenses, special household expenses, therapy costs, or property damage, you may be able to receive special damages through a successful personal injury settlement.

There is also the possibility you can receive compensation as a result of general damages such as, emotional distress, physical suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.

An accident is a traumatic and often devastating experience, and having an attorney on your side can help make the recovery process feel a little easier.

The team at Langdon & Emison can help you navigate insurance documents, communicate with insurance companies, file a winning claim, negotiate a better settlement on your behalf, collect necessary evidence to bolster your claim, and protect you against any bad faith insurance practices.

In the event that the insurance companies are not willing to offer you fair compensation following an accident, our attorneys can quickly move forward to file a lawsuit on your behalf and advocate for you in the courtroom.

When to hire a personal injury lawyer

It’s best to reach out to a qualified personal injury lawyer as early as possible following an accident. An attorney with Langdon & Emison can quickly file a personal injury claim on your behalf so you can receive compensation in a timely manner.

In the event we need to take your case to court, a lawsuit will need to be filed within five years of the date of the accident in the State of Missouri. Claims are often delayed by insurance companies and several rounds of negotiations, so it’s always best to get a personal injury lawyer early on.
