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

Compensation in auto wreck claims goes far beyond merely repairing your car. Car accident injuries can carry an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and maximum compensation for each way your injury has affected you. In most cases, there are two types of damages you can receive in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are essentially compensation that can be objectively verified and do not change depending on how an insurance company or jury estimates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Lamar, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Follow-up 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 summing up medical expenses, car repair costs and how much wages you lost out on. More serious injuries can be much more complicated. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your vehicle crash, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Lamar, MO medical and economic experts will work out and demonstrate how often you will need a new replacement and how much it will cost, accounting for inflation. If you need assistive devices such as a wheelchair, we will compute how much money you will need for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a warehouse worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably restrict your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Lamar, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you recover compensation for every dime of the financial consequences your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to quantify, and often being awarded maximum compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They recompense 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 Lamar, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Lamar, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly hones its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a person and appreciate precisely how disastrous an impact your auto collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve the maximum financial recovery for the full extent 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 crash claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to collect 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 crash cases you cannot 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 behavior was.

When you hire the Lamar, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you recover complete 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 refuse to pay you what you are owed. When the defendant will not be reasonable and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in negotiations, we take the fight to court and use our finely honed trial skills to get you the recovery you need. If you have been harmed in a motor vehicle 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? | Lamar, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including car accident 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 notable exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against lives in Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are not in state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your family member was less than 21 years old when the accident transpired, 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 someone else's negligent actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to contacting a Lamar, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you can still be awarded 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 wreck, your compensation will be diminished by the percentage of blame you share. For example, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but finds 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 motor vehicle collision and get you the maximum compensation you are owed.
