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

Compensation in auto collision claims should not be limited to fixing your vehicle. Car crash injuries can lead to an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has affected your life. Typically, there are two categories of damages you can recover in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

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

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Nevada, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Special equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home nursing

In cases where injuries are not too severe the estimation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, car repair costs and how much time you had to miss from work. More serious injuries can be much more complicated. For instant, if you needed a hip replacement after your car accident, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Nevada, MO medical and economic experts will work out and demonstrate how frequently 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 quantify 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 severely restrict your ability to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Nevada, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you recover compensation for every nickel of the financial impact your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to calculate, and often recovering maximum 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 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 Nevada, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Nevada, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly 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 understand precisely how catastrophic an impact your motor vehicle accident injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced as a result of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is seldom awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle crash 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 recover 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 car wreck cases you cannot prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, it is possible to collect them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how dangerous their behavior was.

When you hire the Nevada, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and demand that you are awarded 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 are owed.

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle collision 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? | Nevada, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto 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 important exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against is a resident of the state of Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are out of state does not count towards the five years.
  2. If you or your loved one was less than 21 years old 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 another driver's thoughtless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to getting in touch with a Nevada, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you can still collect 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 crash, 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 discovers that you were 30 percent at fault, the final amount your receive would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the complexities of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the full compensation you are owed.
