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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond just fixing your vehicle. Car accident injuries can carry an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and maximum compensation for every way your injury has affected you and your loved ones. Typically, there are two types of damages you can receive 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 estimates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Montgomery County, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for instance 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, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more complex. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your auto collision, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Montgomery County, 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 quantify how much money you will require for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a construction worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly limit your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Montgomery County, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you are compensated for every dime of the financial consequences your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to calculate, and often recovering maximum compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They compensate 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 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 Montgomery County, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Montgomery County, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently hones its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your point of view. We help juries relate to you as a human being and see precisely how destructive an impact your auto collision 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 seldom awarded in personal injury and auto collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault 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 motor vehicle collision cases you cannot 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 extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Montgomery County, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and demand that you recover full 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 you deserve.

If you have been hurt in a auto accident because another person 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? | Montgomery County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto accident 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 lives in Missouri and temporarily leaves 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 the date you turn 21 or the date the disability ends to file a claim.

If you were injured because of somebody else's thoughtless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to speaking with a Montgomery County, MO auto crash lawyer.

What if the Accident Was Partially My Fault? | Montgomery County, 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. Meaning that if you are found to be partially to blame for the crash, 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 determines that you were 30 percent at fault, your final financial recovery 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 motor vehicle wreck and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
