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

Compensation in auto wreck claims goes far beyond just fixing your car. Car accident injuries can lead to a colossal 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. Generally, there are two categories of damages you can recover in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are essentially compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, 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, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Butler, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Special equipment 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 serious injuries can be much more complicated. For instant, if you needed a hip replacement after your car collision, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Butler, MO medical and economic experts will work out and demonstrate how often 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 quantify how much money you will need for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a construction worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly limit your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Butler, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you are compensated for every dime of the financial impact your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to assess, and often receiving 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 ability 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 Butler, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Butler, 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 human being and recognize precisely how devastating an impact your motor vehicle crash injuries have had on your life. You deserve a full financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced because of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is seldom 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 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 car collision cases you cannot prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, it is possible to receive them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Butler, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and demand that you recover full 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 hurt in a auto 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? | Butler, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant 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 significant 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 against the five years.
  2. If you or your loved one was less than 21 years old 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 person's negligent behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in calling a Butler, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to collect compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially at fault 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 finds 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 full compensation you deserve.
