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

Compensation in auto accident claims should not be limited to repairing your car. Car crash injuries can lead to an enormous physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and maximum compensation for every way your injury has affected your life. Generally, there are two categories of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are basically 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, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Christian County, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Special equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the estimation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical expenses, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more complicated. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your car wreck, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Christian 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 quantify how much money you will require for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a warehouse worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly diminish your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Christian County, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you recover compensation for every dime of the financial impact your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to calculate, and often receiving maximum compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They reimburse you for the impact of your injuries on your emotional health 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 Christian County, MO jury to know how to assess. At Burger Law, our Christian County, 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 human being and understand exactly how devastating an impact your motor vehicle collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve the maximum financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced as a result of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and auto collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to be awarded 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 car crash cases you cannot 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 Christian County, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and demand that you are awarded full 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 you deserve. When the defendant refuses to be reasonable and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to trial and use our finely honed trial skills to secure you the recovery you require. If you have been injured in a car accident because another driver 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? | Christian County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under 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 your accident took place 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 out of state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your loved one was under the age of 21 at the time of the accident, or was "mentally incapacitated," you have 5 years from the 21st birthday or the date the disability ends to file a claim.

If you were injured because of another person's thoughtless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to speaking with a Christian County, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially to blame for your accident, you can still recover compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially to blame for the wreck, 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 determines that you were 30 percent at fault, your final financial recovery would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the intricacies of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the maximum compensation you are owed.
