What Compensation Will My Arnold, MO Auto Crash Lawyer Recover for Me?

Compensation in auto collision claims should not just be for repairing your vehicle. Car accident injuries can lead to a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and maximum compensation for each way your injury has impacted your life. In most cases, there are two categories of damages you can be awarded in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are basically compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change depending on how an insurance company or jury estimates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Arnold, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Special equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home nursing

In cases where injuries are not too severe the valuation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical expenses, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More severe injuries can be much more complex. For instant, if you needed a joint replacement after your car collision, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Arnold, MO medical and economic experts will calculate and demonstrate how frequently you will need a new replacement and how much it will cost, adjusting for inflation. If you need assistive devices such as a wheelchair, we will quantify how much money you will require for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a construction worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly decrease your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Arnold, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you are compensated for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to assess, and often being awarded maximum compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They refer to the impact of your injuries on your emotional health and capacity to enjoy life. Missouri Senate Bill 239 defines noneconomic damages as:

Your noneconomic damages will be higher if you sustain a "catastrophic personal injury," which Missouri Senate Bill 239 defines as:

  • Quadriplegia, or losing function of all four limbs
  • Paraplegia, or losing function of two limbs
  • Loss of two or more limbs
  • A brain injury that results in permanent cognitive impairment
  • An injury that causes irreversible failure to one or more major organs
  • An injury that results in legal blindness

Noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering are often difficult for a Arnold, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Arnold, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly hones its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your point of view. We help juries relate to you as a human being and appreciate exactly how devastating an impact your auto collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve the maximum financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced as a result of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is infrequently awarded in personal injury and car wreck claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to be awarded punitive damages your auto crash lawyer needs to:

prove by clear and convincing evidence that the defendant intentionally harmed the plaintiff without just cause or acted with a deliberate and flagrant disregard for the safety of others.

In most car crash cases it is difficult to prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, they can often be awarded. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how dangerous their behavior was.

When you hire the Arnold, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you get full compensation for all of your damages. We have more than seven decades of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you are owed.

How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim? | Arnold, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including auto accident claims, have a statute of limitations of five years. That means that you have five years from the date of your accident to file a claim. There are two notable exceptions:

  1. If the defendant is a resident of the state of Missouri and temporarily goes outside the state, the time they are not in state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your family member was under the age of 21 at the time of the accident, or was "mentally incapacitated," you have 5 years from the the date you turn 21 or the date the disability ends to file a claim.

If you were injured because of another driver's careless behavior, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before getting in touch with a Arnold, MO auto crash lawyer.

What if the Accident Was Partially My Fault? | Arnold, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you can still receive compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, your compensation will be diminished by the percentage of blame you share. For example, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but determines that you were 30 percent at fault, your final financial recovery would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the ins and outs of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to lessen the amount you are being blamed for the car crash and get you the maximum compensation you are owed.
