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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond merely repairing your vehicle. Car collision 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 affected your life. Typically, there are two types of damages you can receive in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

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

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Cass County, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Special equipment 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 summing up medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More severe injuries can be much more complicated. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your auto collision, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Cass County, MO medical and economic experts will work out and demonstrate how frequently 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 compute how much money you will need for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a warehouse worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably restrict your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Cass County, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you collect compensation for every nickel of the financial impact your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to quantify, and often receiving full compensation for them will require the judgment 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 Cass County, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Cass 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 acknowledge exactly how destructive an impact your car accident 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 rarely awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle crash claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and make them think twice before committing the same negligence again.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to collect 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 the majority auto accident 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 extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Cass County, 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 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 injured in a motor vehicle accident because someone 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? | Cass County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including car accident claims, have a statute of limitations of five years, meaning that you have five years from the date your accident transpired 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 not in state does not count towards 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 careless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in contacting a Cass County, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially to blame for 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 accident, 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, your final financial recovery would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the ins and outs of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to lessen the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the best possible compensation you deserve.
