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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond just fixing your vehicle. Car accident injuries can cause an enormous 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 case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are in essence compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change based 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, such as:
    • A Caldwell County, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for instance prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Assistive devices 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, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more intricate. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your car wreck, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Caldwell County, 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 special equipment such as a wheelchair, we will calculate how much money you will need for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a warehouse worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably diminish your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Caldwell County, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you recover compensation for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to quantify, and often collecting maximum compensation for them will require the determination of a jury. They recompense 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 Caldwell County, MO jury to know how to assess. At Burger Law, our Caldwell County, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently 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 see precisely how catastrophic an impact your car crash 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 auto accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and deter them from committing the same negligence again.Pursuant 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 auto collision 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 collect them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how dangerous their actions were.

When you hire the Caldwell County, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you get maximum compensation for every single one 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 are owed.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident 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? | Caldwell County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under 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 significant exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against lives 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 family member was less than 21 years old when the accident transpired, 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 careless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in reaching out to a Caldwell County, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to 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 accident, 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 finds that you were 30 percent at fault, the final amount your receive would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the complexities of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount you are being blamed for the auto crash and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
