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

Compensation in auto wreck claims goes far beyond merely fixing your car. Car crash injuries can cause 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 you. In most cases, there are two categories of damages you can be awarded in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

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

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Clinton County, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • 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 expenses, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More severe injuries can be much more intricate. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your vehicle collision, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Clinton County, MO medical and economic experts will figure and demonstrate how frequently you will need a new replacement and how much it will cost, adjusting for inflation. If you need assistive devices such as a wheelchair, we will quantify how much money you will need for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a construction worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably decrease your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Clinton County, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you are compensated for every penny of the financial consequences 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 determination of a jury. They recompense 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 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 Clinton County, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Clinton County, 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 person and recognize precisely how destructive an impact your auto wreck injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle wreck claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and deter them from committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to be awarded 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 most auto collision 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 Clinton County, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you recover maximum 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. When the defendant refuses to see reason and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight in front of a judge and jury and use our excellent trial skills to win you the recovery you require. If you have been harmed in a car accident 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? | Clinton County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including car collision 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 noteworthy exceptions:

  1. If the defendant resides in Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are out of state does not count towards 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 driver's reckless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in calling a Clinton County, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to 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 crash, your compensation will be reduced 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, the final amount your receive 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 best possible compensation you are owed.
