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

Compensation in auto crash claims should not be limited to fixing your car. Car wreck injuries can carry an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has affected you. In most cases, there are two categories of damages you can receive in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are in essence compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change depending on how an insurance company or jury evaluates 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, including:
    • A Crawford County, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example 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 valuation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, car repair costs and how much wages you lost out on. More serious injuries can be much more convoluted. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your auto wreck, that will probably need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Crawford County, MO medical and economic experts will calculate 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 determine how much money you will need for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a construction worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will severely limit your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Crawford County, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you collect compensation for every nickel of the financial consequences your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to assess, and often recovering full compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They refer to 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 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 Crawford County, MO jury to know how to assess. At Burger Law, our Crawford County, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly looks to imporove its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your point of view. We help juries relate to you as a person and recognize precisely how catastrophic an impact your car accident injuries have had on your life. You deserve a great financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is infrequently awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault 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 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 the majority motor vehicle wreck cases it is difficult to 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 Crawford County, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and demand that you recover 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. When the defendant will not be reasonable and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in negotiations, we take the fight to court and use our finely honed trial skills to win you the recovery you require. If you have been injured in a car wreck 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? | Crawford County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including car accident claims, have a statute of limitations of five years. That means that you have five years from the date your accident transpired to file a claim. There are two notable 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 family member was less than 21 years old when the accident transpired, 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 actions, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before getting in touch with a Crawford County, MO auto crash lawyer.

What if the Accident Was Partially My Fault? | Crawford County, 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 wreck, your compensation will be decreased by the percentage of blame you share. For instance, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but finds 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 reduce the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the full compensation you deserve.
