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

Compensation in auto wreck claims goes far beyond just fixing your vehicle. Car accident injuries can cause a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has affected you. Generally, there are two categories of damages you can receive in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are essentially 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 collect compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Pacific, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as 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 evaluation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, car repair costs 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 accident, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Pacific, MO medical and economic experts will work out and demonstrate how frequently 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 warehouse worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly diminish your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Pacific, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you are compensated for every penny of the financial consequences your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to assess, and often receiving fair compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They refer to the impact of your injuries on your emotional well-being and ability 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 Pacific, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Pacific, 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 person and understand precisely how devastating an impact your car wreck injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full scope 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 car accident 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 collect 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 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 dangerous their behavior was.

When you hire the Pacific, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and insist that you collect complete 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 are owed. When the defendant will not be reasonable and will not agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to trial and use our excellent trial skills to get you the recovery you require. If you have been harmed in a auto collision 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? | Pacific, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto collision claims, have a statute of limitations of five years. That means that you have five years from the date your accident took place to file a claim. There are two significant 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 not in state does not count towards the five years.
  2. If you or your loved one was under the age of 21 when the accident occurred, 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 careless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to speaking with a Pacific, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for your accident, you can still be awarded 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 diminished 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, your final financial recovery would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the complexities of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount you are being blamed for the auto collision and get you the full compensation you deserve.
