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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond merely fixing your car. Car crash injuries can lead to a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has impacted you. Generally, there are two kinds of damages you can recover 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 assesses 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 Marshfield, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Assistive devices 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 totaling medical expenses, car repair costs and how much time you had to miss from work. More serious injuries can be much more intricate. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your car wreck, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Marshfield, 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 quantify 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 capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Marshfield, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you are compensated for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to calculate, and often receiving fair 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 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 Marshfield, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Marshfield, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently sharpens its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and acknowledge exactly how catastrophic an impact your car accident injuries have had on your life. You deserve a full financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced because of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is not commonly awarded in personal injury and auto accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and deter them from committing the same negligence again.According 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 most auto 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 recover them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Marshfield, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you collect maximum compensation for all of your damages. We have over seven decades of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you you deserve. When the defendant refuses to see reason and will not agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight in front of a judge and jury and use our excellent trial skills to get you the recovery you need. If you have been harmed in a auto crash because someone 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? | Marshfield, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including motor vehicle 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 noteworthy exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against resides 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 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 someone else's thoughtless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in calling a Marshfield, MO auto crash lawyer.

What if the Accident Was Partially My Fault? | Marshfield, 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. That means that if you are found to be partially at fault for the collision, your compensation will be reduced 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 intricacies of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount you are being blamed for the car accident and get you the full compensation you deserve.
