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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond just fixing your vehicle. Car wreck injuries can carry a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and full compensation for each way your injury has affected you and your loved ones. Generally, there are two categories of damages you can receive in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are basically compensation that can be objectively verified and do not change depending 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 Eldon, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as 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 totaling medical expenses, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More serious injuries can be much more complicated. For instant, if you needed a knee replacement after your auto collision, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Eldon, MO medical and economic experts will figure 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. Likewise, if you were a construction worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will severely decrease your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Eldon, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you collect compensation for every dime of the financial impact your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to calculate, and often being awarded full compensation for them will require the determination of a jury. They refer to 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 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 Eldon, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Eldon, 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 person and understand precisely how destructive an impact your car collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve a great financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced due to 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 at-fault party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to be awarded 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 motor vehicle crash cases you cannot prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, it is possible to recover them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how dangerous their behavior was.

When you hire the Eldon, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and insist that you receive maximum compensation for all of your damages. We have over seven decades of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that do not want to pay you what you you deserve.

If you have been injured in a auto collision because another driver 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? | Eldon, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including auto collision claims, have a statute of limitations of five years, so 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 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 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 someone else's reckless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in getting in touch with a Eldon, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault 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 accident, your compensation will be decreased by the percentage of blame you share. For example, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but discovers that you were 30 percent at fault, your final compensation would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the intricacies of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
