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

Compensation in auto collision claims goes far beyond just repairing your car. Car crash injuries can cause an enormous physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. Typically, there are two types of damages you can receive in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are fundamentally 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 collect compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Cameron, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Assistive devices 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 bills, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more complicated. For instant, if you needed a knee replacement after your car accident, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Cameron, MO medical and economic experts will figure 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. Similarly, if you were a warehouse worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will severely diminish your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Cameron, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you recover compensation for every penny of the financial consequences your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to calculate, and often receiving maximum compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They compensate 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 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 Cameron, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Cameron, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently looks to imporove 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 understand precisely how destructive 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 because of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them think twice before committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to receive 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 auto collision 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 behavior was.

When you hire the Cameron, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and demand that you are awarded complete 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. When the defendant will not see reason and will not agree to a fair settlement in negotiations, we take the fight to trial and use our great trial skills to get you the recovery you require. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle wreck 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? | Cameron, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including car wreck 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 important exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against lives in Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are not in 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 the date you turn 21 or the date the disability ends to file a claim.

If you were injured because of someone else's thoughtless behavior, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before contacting a Cameron, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially to blame for 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 lowered by the percentage of blame you share. For example, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but finds that you were 30 percent at fault, your final financial recovery 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 motor vehicle collision and get you the best possible compensation you are owed.
