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

Compensation in auto crash claims should not just be for fixing your vehicle. Car collision injuries can carry an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and maximum compensation for every way your injury has impacted you. Typically, there are two types of damages you can be awarded in a personal injury claim:

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 evaluates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you receive compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Cuba, 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 nursing

In cases where injuries are not too severe the estimation of economic damages is as easy as summing up medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More significant injuries can be much more convoluted. For instant, if you needed a joint replacement after your auto accident, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Cuba, 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 calculate how much money you will need for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a construction worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably decrease your ability to work in the future. Your Burger Law Cuba, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you recover compensation for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to quantify, and often being awarded maximum 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 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 Cuba, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Cuba, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently hones its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a person and understand precisely how devastating 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 because of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and deter them from 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 most car crash cases you cannot 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 Cuba, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you receive maximum compensation for every single one of your damages. We have more than seven decades of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you are owed. When the defendant refuses to see reason and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to court and use our excellent trial skills to get you the recovery you require. If you have been hurt in a auto 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? | Cuba, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including motor vehicle collision 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 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 out of state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your loved one was less than 21 years old 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 negligent actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in getting in touch with a Cuba, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to receive compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. That means that if you are found to be partially to blame for the collision, 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 ins and outs of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to minimize the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the full compensation you are owed.
