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

Compensation in auto collision claims should not be limited to fixing your car. Car collision injuries can cause a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. Typically, there are two kinds of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are in essence 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, including:
    • A Concord, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Assistive devices such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home nursing

In cases where injuries are not too severe the valuation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical expenses, car repair costs and how much time you had to miss from work. More serious injuries can be much more complex. For example, if you needed a hip replacement after your car crash, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Concord, MO medical and economic experts will work out and demonstrate how often 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 require for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a construction worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably restrict your ability to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Concord, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure 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 assess, and often recovering full compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They recompense 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 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 Concord, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Concord, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently hones its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your perspective. We help juries relate to you as a person and recognize precisely how disastrous an impact your car accident 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 wreck claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and deter them from committing the same negligence again.Pursuant 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 most auto wreck 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 extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Concord, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you collect maximum 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 hurt in a motor vehicle wreck because another person 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? | Concord, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including car 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 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 loved one was under the age of 21 when the accident occurred, 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 thoughtless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in talking to a Concord, MO auto crash lawyer.

What if the Accident Was Partially My Fault? | Concord, 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 to blame for the collision, 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 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 reduce the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the full compensation you deserve.
