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

Compensation in auto crash claims should not just be for repairing your vehicle. Car collision injuries can carry an enormous physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and full compensation for each way your injury has affected you and your loved ones. In general, 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 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 Chesterfield, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Other doctor 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 totaling medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More grave injuries can be much more complex. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your auto wreck, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Chesterfield, 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 assistive devices 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 decrease your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Chesterfield, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you collect compensation for every dollar of the financial consequences your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to assess, and often receiving full compensation for them will require the determination 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 higher 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 Chesterfield, MO jury to know how to assess. At Burger Law, our Chesterfield, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently looks to imporove its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and see exactly how destructive an impact your car wreck injuries have had on your life. You deserve a full financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced because of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is not commonly awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and deter them from committing the same negligence again.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to receive punitive damages your auto crash lawyer has 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 motor vehicle 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 receive them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Chesterfield, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and insist that you get complete compensation for all of your damages. We have more than 70 years of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that do not want to pay you what you you deserve.

If you have been hurt 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? | Chesterfield, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto 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 defendant is a resident of the state of 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 family member was under the age of 21 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 somebody else's reckless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in talking to a Chesterfield, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you can still 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 example, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but discovers 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 minimize the amount you are being blamed for the auto accident and get you the best possible compensation you deserve.
