What Compensation Will My Buffalo, 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 really recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has affected you. In most cases, there are two kinds of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are basically 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 receive compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Buffalo, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Assistive devices such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home nursing

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 complex. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your car crash, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Buffalo, MO medical and economic experts will figure and demonstrate how frequently you will need a new replacement and how much it will cost, accounting for inflation. If you need assistive devices such as a wheelchair, we will compute 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 severely decrease your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Buffalo, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you recover compensation for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to calculate, and often recovering full compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They reimburse you for 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 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 Buffalo, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Buffalo, 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 see exactly how destructive an impact your motor vehicle accident injuries have had on your life. You deserve the maximum financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle 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 collect punitive damages your auto crash lawyer has 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 motor vehicle crash 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 extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Buffalo, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and insist that you get maximum compensation for every single one 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 are owed.

If you have been harmed in a auto accident 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? | Buffalo, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto wreck claims, have a statute of limitations of five years, meaning 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 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 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 someone else's careless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to contacting a Buffalo, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially to blame for your accident, you can still 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 diminished by the percentage of blame you share. For instance, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but determines 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 you are being blamed for the auto accident and get you the full compensation you deserve.
