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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond merely repairing your car. Car accident injuries can lead to an immense 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 kinds of damages you can be awarded in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are essentially 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 receive compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Clinton, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for instance prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Assistive devices 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, car repair costs and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more complicated. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your auto collision, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Clinton, 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 determine how much money you will require for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a construction worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably restrict your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Clinton, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you are compensated for every dollar of the financial impact your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to calculate, and often recovering full compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They recompense you for the impact of your injuries on your emotional well-being and ability 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 Clinton, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Clinton, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently looks to imporove 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 recognize exactly how catastrophic an impact your car wreck injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced as a result 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 negligent party and make them think twice before committing the same negligence again.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to recover 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 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 receive them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Clinton, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and insist that you collect complete compensation for all of your damages. We have over 70 years of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you you deserve.

If you have been injured in a car collision 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? | Clinton, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including motor vehicle 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 important exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against lives 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 family member 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 someone else's careless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to calling a Clinton, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you may still be able to 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 collision, 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 discovers 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 reduce the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the best possible compensation you deserve.
