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

Compensation in auto collision claims goes far beyond merely repairing your vehicle. Car wreck injuries can cause an enormous physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and maximum compensation for each way your injury has impacted you. Typically, there are two categories of damages you can receive in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are fundamentally compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change based on how an insurance company or jury evaluates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you receive compensation for:

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

In cases where injuries are not too severe the evaluation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More significant injuries can be much more convoluted. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your vehicle wreck, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Ozark, 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 assistive devices such as a wheelchair, we will quantify how much money you will need for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a warehouse worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly limit your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Ozark, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you are compensated for every nickel of the financial consequences your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to calculate, and often receiving full 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 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 Ozark, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Ozark, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly hones its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and appreciate precisely how disastrous an impact your auto collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve a full financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and car crash claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them think twice before committing the same negligence again.According 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 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 Ozark, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and demand that you receive complete compensation for every single one 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. When the defendant will not be reasonable and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to court and use our finely honed trial skills to get you the recovery you require. If you have been harmed in a motor vehicle wreck 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? | Ozark, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including car collision claims, have a statute of limitations of five years, so that you have five years from the date of your accident to file a claim. There are two notable 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 the date you turn 21 or the date the disability ends to file a claim.

If you were injured because of another person's reckless actions, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before reaching out to a Ozark, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to recover compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning 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 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 minimize the amount you are being blamed for the auto collision and get you the full compensation you deserve.
