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

Compensation in auto crash claims should not be limited to fixing your car. Car accident injuries can carry an enormous physical and emotional toll and in order to really recover you need fair and maximum compensation for each way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. In most cases, there are two kinds of damages you can be awarded in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

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

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Marshall, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for instance 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 estimation 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 intricate. For instant, if you needed a joint replacement after your auto crash, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Marshall, MO medical and economic experts will figure and demonstrate how often 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 warehouse worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly diminish your ability to work in the future. Your Burger Law Marshall, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you receive compensation for every dollar of the financial consequences your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to calculate, and often recovering maximum 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 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 Marshall, MO jury to know how to assess. At Burger Law, our Marshall, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently looks to imporove its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your perspective. We help juries relate to you as a person and appreciate exactly how disastrous an impact your auto accident injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is seldom awarded in personal injury and auto accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.Pursuant 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 the majority motor vehicle collision 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 receive them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how dangerous their actions were.

When you hire the Marshall, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and demand that you get 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 refuse to pay you what you you deserve.

If you have been hurt 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? | Marshall, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including auto collision 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 significant exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against lives in 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 family member was less than 21 years old when the accident took place, 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 thoughtless behavior, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before speaking with a Marshall, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you may still be able to be awarded compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially to blame 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, the final amount your receive would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the ins and outs of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to minimize the amount you are being blamed for the car accident and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
