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

Compensation in auto accident claims goes far beyond merely repairing your car. Car wreck injuries can carry an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has affected your life. Generally, there are two types of damages you can receive in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are fundamentally compensation that can be objectively verified 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, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Boone County, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Special equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home nursing

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 grave injuries can be much more complex. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your car crash, that will probably need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Boone County, MO medical and economic experts will calculate and demonstrate how frequently you will need a new replacement and how much it will cost, accounting for inflation. If you need special equipment such as a wheelchair, we will calculate how much money you will require for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a warehouse worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly decrease your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Boone County, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you receive compensation for every penny of the financial consequences your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to assess, and often recovering maximum compensation for them will require the determination of a jury. They reimburse 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 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 Boone County, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Boone County, 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 acknowledge precisely how devastating an impact your auto wreck injuries have had on your life. You deserve a great 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 rarely 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.According 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 most car 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 dangerous their actions were.

When you hire the Boone County, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and demand that you collect maximum compensation for every single one of your damages. We have more than seven decades of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that do not want to pay you what you are owed.

If you have been harmed in a car 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? | Boone County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

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

  1. If the defendant lives 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 loved one was less than 21 years old 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 another person's reckless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to reaching out to a Boone County, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially to blame for your accident, you may still be able to collect compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. That means 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 decides 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 of blame being placed on you and get you the best possible compensation you are owed.
