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

Compensation in auto collision claims should not be limited to fixing your car. Car crash injuries can carry an immense 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 kinds of damages you can recover 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 based 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 capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Battlefield, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for instance prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Assistive devices such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the valuation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More grave injuries can be much more convoluted. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your auto collision, that will probably need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Battlefield, 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 special equipment such as a wheelchair, we will determine how much money you will need for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a warehouse worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will severely decrease your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Battlefield, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you are compensated for every dime of the financial consequences your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to assess, and often being awarded maximum compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They reimburse you for the impact of your injuries on your emotional health 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 Battlefield, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Battlefield, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently hones 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 understand precisely how disastrous an impact your auto collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is seldom awarded in personal injury and car crash 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 be awarded punitive damages your auto crash lawyer must:

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 motor vehicle wreck cases you cannot prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, it is possible to recover them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how dangerous their actions were.

When you hire the Battlefield, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and demand that you are awarded full compensation for every single one of your damages. We have more than 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 motor vehicle crash 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? | Battlefield, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including motor vehicle collision claims, have a statute of limitations of five years, meaning that you have five years from the date your accident occurred to file a claim. There are two important exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against resides in Missouri and temporarily goes outside the state, the time they are not in state does not count towards 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 actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to talking to a Battlefield, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you may still be able to receive compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially to blame for the collision, your compensation will be reduced 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, your final financial recovery 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 motor vehicle accident and get you the best possible compensation you are owed.
