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

Compensation in auto collision claims should not be limited to repairing your car. Car accident injuries can lead to an enormous physical and emotional toll and in order to really recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. Generally, there are two kinds of damages you can be awarded in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are basically compensation that can be objectively verified and do not change depending on how an insurance company or jury evaluates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Carrollton, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as 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 evaluation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More severe injuries can be much more complex. For instant, if you needed a joint replacement after your car wreck, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Carrollton, MO medical and economic experts will calculate and demonstrate how often 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 compute 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 limit your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Carrollton, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you receive compensation for every dime of the financial consequences your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to quantify, and often being awarded fair compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They refer to the impact of your injuries on your emotional well-being 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 Carrollton, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Carrollton, 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 person and appreciate exactly how devastating an impact your auto 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 seldom awarded in personal injury and auto wreck 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 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 accident 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 Carrollton, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you get full compensation for all of your damages. We have over 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 motor vehicle collision 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? | Carrollton, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including car crash claims, have a statute of limitations of five years, meaning that you have five years from the date your accident took place to file a claim. There are two notable exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against resides in Missouri and temporarily goes outside the state, the time they are out of state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your family member was less than 21 years old when the accident happened, 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 negligent behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in talking to a Carrollton, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you can still recover 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 wreck, your compensation will be reduced 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 ins and outs of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the best possible compensation you are owed.
