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

Compensation in auto collision claims goes far beyond just fixing your car. Car collision injuries can lead to an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and full compensation for each way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. In general, there are two kinds of damages you can receive in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are essentially compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change depending on how an insurance company or jury estimates 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 capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Gladstone, 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 evaluation of economic damages is as easy as summing up medical bills, car repair costs and how much wages you lost out on. More significant injuries can be much more convoluted. For instant, if you needed a knee replacement after your vehicle crash, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Gladstone, MO medical and economic experts will figure 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. Similarly, if you were a warehouse worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will severely restrict your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Gladstone, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you collect compensation for every dime of the financial impact your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to assess, and often recovering full compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They reimburse you for the impact of your injuries on your emotional health and capacity 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 Gladstone, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Gladstone, 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 human being and see exactly how destructive an impact your motor vehicle wreck injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced because of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and car wreck claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and deter them from committing the same negligence again.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to receive punitive damages your auto crash lawyer has 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 car collision 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 actions were.

When you hire the Gladstone, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and insist that you get maximum compensation for every single one of your damages. We have more than seven decades 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 get you the recovery you require. If you have been hurt in a auto accident because someone 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? | Gladstone, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including motor vehicle accident claims, have a statute of limitations of five years, so that you have five years from the date your accident occurred to file a claim. There are two noteworthy exceptions:

  1. If the defendant 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 21st birthday or the date the disability ends to file a claim.

If you were injured because of another driver's careless actions, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before calling a Gladstone, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you can still 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 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 finds that you were 30 percent at fault, your final financial recovery would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the complexities of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the full compensation you are owed.
