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

Compensation in auto wreck claims goes far beyond just repairing your car. Car wreck injuries can cause an enormous physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and maximum compensation for every way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. Typically, there are two types of damages you can recover in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are in essence 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 collect compensation for:

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

In cases where injuries are not too severe the evaluation of economic damages is as easy as summing up medical expenses, car repair costs and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more complicated. For example, if you needed a hip replacement after your auto crash, that will probably need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Ashland, MO medical and economic experts will work out and demonstrate how often you will need a new replacement and how much it will cost, accounting for inflation. If you need assistive devices such as a wheelchair, we will compute how much money you will need for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a construction worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably diminish your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Ashland, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you are compensated for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to quantify, and often being awarded maximum compensation for them will require the determination of a jury. They recompense you for the impact of your injuries on your emotional well-being and ability to enjoy life. Missouri Senate Bill 239 defines noneconomic damages as:

Your noneconomic damages will be greater 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 Ashland, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Ashland, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly hones its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and acknowledge precisely how destructive an impact your car 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 motor vehicle collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and deter them from committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to recover 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 the majority car wreck cases you cannot 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 actions were.

When you hire the Ashland, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and insist that you recover maximum compensation for all of your damages. We have over 70 years of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you are owed.

If you have been hurt in a car wreck because someone else broke the rules of the road, call Burger Law immediately at (314) 500-HURT.

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

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

  1. If the defendant lives in 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 21st birthday or the date the disability ends to file a claim.

If you were injured because of another driver's reckless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in contacting a Ashland, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to recover compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially to blame for the wreck, your compensation will be decreased by the percentage of blame you share. For instance, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but discovers that you were 30 percent at fault, the final amount your receive would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the intricacies of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to lessen the amount you are being blamed for the auto accident and get you the full compensation you deserve.
