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

Compensation in auto crash claims should not just be for fixing your vehicle. Car accident injuries can lead to an immense 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. In most cases, there are two kinds of damages you can receive in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are fundamentally compensation that can be objectively verified and do not change based on how an insurance company or jury estimates 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 capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Greene County, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Special equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the valuation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, car repair costs and how much time you had to miss from work. More severe injuries can be much more intricate. For instant, if you needed a hip replacement after your auto crash, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Greene County, MO medical and economic experts will work out and demonstrate how frequently 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 compute how much money you will need for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a warehouse worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly diminish your capacity to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Greene County, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you are compensated for every nickel of the financial consequences your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to calculate, and often recovering maximum compensation for them will require the determination of a jury. They refer to 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 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 Greene County, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Greene County, 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 person and see precisely how catastrophic an impact your motor vehicle accident injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and car accident 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 receive 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 auto 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 recover them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how dangerous their actions were.

When you hire the Greene County, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and demand that you collect full compensation for all 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 are owed. When the defendant refuses to be reasonable and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to trial and use our finely honed trial skills to get you the recovery you require. If you have been harmed in a car collision 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? | Greene County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

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

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

If you were injured because of someone else's reckless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in reaching out to a Greene County, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you can still receive compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially at fault for the wreck, your compensation will be diminished by the percentage of blame you share. For instance, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but decides that you were 30 percent at fault, your final compensation would be $70,000.

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