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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond just repairing your car. Car wreck injuries can carry a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and maximum compensation for every way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. Generally, there are two kinds of damages you can receive in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are in essence compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change based 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 Overland, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for instance prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Assistive devices such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the evaluation of economic damages is as easy as summing up medical bills, 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 joint replacement after your car wreck, that will probably need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Overland, 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 special equipment such as a wheelchair, we will calculate 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 notably restrict your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Overland, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you receive compensation for every dollar of the financial impact your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult 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 ability 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 Overland, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Overland, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently hones its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and see exactly how devastating an impact your car accident injuries have had on your life. You deserve a great financial recovery for the full scope 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 accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and deter them from 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 the majority motor vehicle crash cases it is difficult to prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, they can often be awarded. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Overland, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and demand that you get full compensation for all of your damages. We have over 70 years of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you you deserve. When the defendant will not be reasonable and will not agree to a fair settlement in negotiations, we take the fight to trial and use our excellent trial skills to secure you the recovery you require. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident because another driver 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? | Overland, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including car accident claims, have a statute of limitations of five years. That means that you have five years from the date of your accident to file a claim. There are two notable exceptions:

  1. If the defendant resides in 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 when the accident transpired, 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 careless actions, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before talking to a Overland, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to 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 lowered 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, 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 minimize the amount you are being blamed for the auto crash and get you the maximum compensation you are owed.
