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

Compensation in auto accident claims should not be limited to fixing your car. Car wreck injuries can cause a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and maximum compensation for every way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. Generally, 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 recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Florissant, 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 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 time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more intricate. For example, if you needed a hip replacement after your auto wreck, that will probably need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Florissant, 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 special equipment such as a wheelchair, we will calculate how much money you will require for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a warehouse worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly restrict your capacity to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Florissant, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you are compensated for every nickel of the financial impact your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to quantify, and often receiving fair compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They compensate you for the impact of your injuries on your emotional well-being and capacity 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 Florissant, MO jury to know how to assess. At Burger Law, our Florissant, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently sharpens its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a person and recognize precisely how devastating 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 as a result of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is infrequently awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle wreck 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 must:

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 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 dangerous their actions were.

When you hire the Florissant, 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 you deserve. When the defendant will not 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 win you the recovery you need. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident 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? | Florissant, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including motor vehicle wreck 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 noteworthy exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against resides in Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are out of state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your loved one 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 careless behavior, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before reaching out to a Florissant, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to collect 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 reduced 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 financial recovery 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 maximum compensation you are owed.
