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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond just fixing your vehicle. Car collision injuries can carry a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and full compensation for each way your injury has affected your life. Generally, there are two kinds of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are fundamentally compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change depending on how an insurance company or jury assesses them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Garden City, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Special equipment 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 totaling medical expenses, car repair costs and how much wages you lost out on. More severe injuries can be much more complex. For example, if you needed a hip replacement after your auto crash, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Garden City, 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 special equipment 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 notably decrease your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Garden City, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you are compensated for every penny of the financial consequences 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 determination of a jury. They refer to 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 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 Garden City, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Garden City, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly looks to imporove its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and recognize precisely how devastating an impact your car collision 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 seldom awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle collision 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 the majority motor vehicle wreck cases it is difficult to 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 behavior was.

When you hire the Garden City, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and demand that you are awarded maximum compensation for every single one of your damages. We have over 70 years of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you are owed.

If you have been injured in a car crash 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? | Garden City, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto collision claims, have a statute of limitations of five years, so that you have five years from the date your accident took place 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 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 somebody else's reckless behavior, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before calling a Garden City, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you can still be awarded compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially at fault for the accident, 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 lessen the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the best possible compensation you are owed.
