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

Compensation in auto wreck claims should not be limited to repairing your car. Car collision injuries can lead to an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to really recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. Generally, there are two categories of damages you can receive in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are essentially compensation that can be objectively verified and do not change based on how an insurance company or jury evaluates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you receive compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Belton, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Assistive devices 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 summing up medical expenses, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more convoluted. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your car wreck, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Belton, 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 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 severely limit your ability to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Belton, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you recover compensation for every dollar of the financial consequences your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to assess, and often collecting full compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They compensate you for 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 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 Belton, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Belton, 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 person and recognize precisely how disastrous an impact your motor vehicle wreck injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and auto collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to collect 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 motor vehicle wreck cases it is difficult to 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 Belton, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you collect 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 you deserve.

If you have been hurt in a car accident because another person 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? | Belton, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

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

  1. If the defendant lives in Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are not in state does not count towards the five years.
  2. If you or your loved one was under the age of 21 when the accident happened, 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 negligent behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in speaking with a Belton, MO auto crash lawyer.

What if the Accident Was Partially My Fault? | Belton, 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. That means that if you are found to be partially at fault 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, your final compensation would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the complexities of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to lessen the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the full compensation you are owed.
