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

Compensation in auto collision claims should not be limited to repairing your car. Car accident injuries can cause an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and full compensation for each way your injury has affected you and your loved ones. Generally, 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 based 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 Aurora, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Special equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the estimation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, 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 joint replacement after your car collision, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Aurora, MO medical and economic experts will work out 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 calculate how much money you will need for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a warehouse worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly restrict your ability to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Aurora, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you are compensated for every nickel of the financial impact your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to quantify, and often recovering maximum compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They refer to 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 higher if you have 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 Aurora, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Aurora, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly looks to imporove its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your perspective. We help juries relate to you as a human being and see exactly how destructive an impact your car collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve a great financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced as a result of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is not commonly awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle wreck claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.Pursuant 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 auto wreck 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 extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Aurora, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and insist that you recover complete compensation for all of your damages. We have over 70 years of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that do not want to pay you what you you deserve.

If you have been hurt in a auto crash because somebody 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? | Aurora, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including car crash claims, have a statute of limitations of five years. That means that you have five years from the date your accident happened to file a claim. There are two notable exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against lives in Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are out of state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your family member was under the age of 21 when the accident transpired, 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 somebody else's reckless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to contacting a Aurora, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you may still be able to be awarded compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially at fault for the crash, your compensation will be reduced by the percentage of blame you share. For example, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but finds 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 reduce the amount you are being blamed for the auto crash and get you the full compensation you deserve.
