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

Compensation in auto accident claims goes far beyond just fixing your vehicle. Car crash 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. In most cases, there are two types of damages you can recover 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 based on how an insurance company or jury evaluates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you collect compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Farmington, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Assistive devices such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home nursing

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 grave injuries can be much more complex. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your vehicle crash, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Farmington, 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 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 severely decrease your ability to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Farmington, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you recover compensation for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to calculate, and often recovering full compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They reimburse 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 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 Farmington, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Farmington, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly 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 acknowledge precisely how devastating an impact your auto crash injuries have had on your life. You deserve a full financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is not commonly awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle crash claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them think twice before committing the same negligence again.Pursuant 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 motor vehicle wreck cases you cannot prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, it is possible to receive them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how dangerous their actions were.

When you hire the Farmington, 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 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 harmed in a motor vehicle wreck 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? | Farmington, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto accident claims, have a statute of limitations of five years. That means that you have five years from the date your accident happened to file a claim. There are two noteworthy 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 not in state does not count towards the five years.
  2. If you or your loved one was less than 21 years old when the accident transpired, 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 person's negligent behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to speaking with a Farmington, MO auto crash lawyer.

What if the Accident Was Partially My Fault? | Farmington, 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. That means that if you are found to be partially at fault for the wreck, 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 determines 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 reduce the amount you are being blamed for the car wreck and get you the best possible compensation you are owed.
