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

Compensation in auto accident claims should not just be for repairing your car. Car collision injuries can carry an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to really recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has impacted you. Generally, there are two types 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 estimates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you receive compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Holden, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Assistive devices such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the evaluation of economic damages is as easy as summing up medical expenses, car repair costs and how much wages you lost out on. More significant injuries can be much more convoluted. For example, if you needed a hip replacement after your vehicle wreck, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Holden, MO medical and economic experts will figure 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 determine how much money you will require for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a construction worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will severely decrease your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Holden, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you are compensated for every dime 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 determination 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 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 Holden, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Holden, 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 see precisely how disastrous an impact your car collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible 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 car accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to receive 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 the majority motor vehicle accident 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 collect them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Holden, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and demand that you collect 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. When the defendant will not see reason and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to trial and use our excellent trial skills to secure you the recovery you need. If you have been harmed in a auto 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? | Holden, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including motor vehicle wreck 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 significant exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against is a resident of the state of Missouri and temporarily goes outside 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 somebody else's negligent actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in speaking with a Holden, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you may still be able to receive compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially to blame for the collision, your compensation will be decreased 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, your final compensation 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 you are being blamed for the auto accident and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
