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

Compensation in auto wreck claims should not be limited to repairing your car. Car collision injuries can carry a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to really recover you need fair and maximum compensation for each way your injury has affected you. In most cases, 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 evaluates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you receive compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Johnson County, 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 care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the valuation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more intricate. For instant, if you needed a joint replacement after your vehicle wreck, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Johnson County, 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 determine how much money you will need for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a construction worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably diminish your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Johnson County, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you collect compensation for every dollar of the financial consequences your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to assess, and often receiving full compensation for them will require the evaluation 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 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 Johnson County, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Johnson County, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly sharpens its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and recognize exactly how catastrophic an impact your motor vehicle accident injuries have had on your life. You deserve the maximum financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced as a result of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is not commonly awarded in personal injury and car collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and deter them from committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to recover 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 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 extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Johnson County, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you are awarded full 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 be reasonable and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in negotiations, we take the fight to trial and use our great trial skills to secure you the recovery you need. If you have been hurt in a auto crash 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? | Johnson County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including car wreck 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 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 out of state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your family member was less than 21 years old when the accident occurred, 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. Do not wait to contacting a Johnson County, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to receive 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 collision, your compensation will be lowered by the percentage of blame you share. For example, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but decides that you were 30 percent at fault, your final financial recovery would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the intricacies of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount you are being blamed for the auto wreck and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
