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

Compensation in auto accident claims goes far beyond merely fixing your vehicle. 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 affected your life. In most cases, there are two kinds of damages you can receive 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 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 capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Dexter, 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 care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the evaluation of economic damages is as easy as summing up medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more complicated. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your vehicle collision, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Dexter, MO medical and economic experts will calculate and demonstrate how often you will need a new replacement and how much it will cost, accounting for inflation. If you need assistive devices such as a wheelchair, we will compute how much money you will require for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a warehouse worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably limit your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Dexter, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you are compensated for every dollar of the financial consequences your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to calculate, and often receiving fair compensation for them will require the evaluation 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 Dexter, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Dexter, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently sharpens 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 appreciate precisely how devastating an impact your car wreck injuries have had on your life. You deserve a great 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 seldom awarded in personal injury and auto accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to receive 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 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 dangerous their behavior was.

When you hire the Dexter, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf 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 do not want to pay you what you are owed. When the defendant refuses to see reason and will not agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to court and use our finely honed trial skills to secure you the recovery you need. If you have been harmed in a car 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? | Dexter, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including car accident 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 is a resident of the state of Missouri and temporarily goes outside the state, the time they are out of state does not count towards the five years.
  2. If you or your family member was under the age of 21 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 another driver's reckless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to getting in touch with a Dexter, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to 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 crash, your compensation will be lowered 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, 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 best possible compensation you deserve.
