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

Compensation in auto collision claims goes far beyond just repairing your car. Car crash injuries can lead to 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 kinds of damages you can recover in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are in essence 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 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 Blue Springs, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Special equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the evaluation of economic damages is as easy as summing up medical expenses, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More serious injuries can be much more complicated. For instant, if you needed a joint replacement after your auto collision, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Blue Springs, MO medical and economic experts will figure 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 can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably limit your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Blue Springs, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you recover compensation for every nickel of the financial impact your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to calculate, and often collecting fair 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 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 Blue Springs, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Blue Springs, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly sharpens its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your perspective. We help juries relate to you as a person and appreciate precisely how catastrophic an impact your motor vehicle crash injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible 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 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.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to recover 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 most car wreck cases you cannot prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, it is possible to collect them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Blue Springs, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and demand that you collect full compensation for all of your damages. We have over seven decades of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you you deserve. When the defendant refuses to be reasonable and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in negotiations, we take the fight to court and use our excellent trial skills to win you the recovery you require. If you have been harmed in a motor vehicle crash because another driver 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? | Blue Springs, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto collision 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 important exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against resides in Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are out of 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 21st birthday or the date the disability ends to file a claim.

If you were injured because of somebody else's reckless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to getting in touch with a Blue Springs, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you can still receive 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 crash, your compensation will be lowered by the percentage of blame you share. For example, 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 minimize the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the best possible compensation you deserve.
