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

Compensation in auto wreck claims goes far beyond just fixing your car. Car wreck injuries can cause a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and maximum compensation for each way your injury has impacted your life. Generally, 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 evaluates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you receive compensation for:

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

In cases where injuries are not too severe the estimation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical expenses, car repair costs and how much time you had to miss from work. More significant injuries can be much more complicated. For example, if you needed a hip replacement after your car wreck, that will probably need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Parkville, MO medical and economic experts will figure 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 compute how much money you will require for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a construction worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably restrict your capacity to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Parkville, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you are compensated for every nickel of the financial impact your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to quantify, and often collecting maximum compensation for them will require the determination 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 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 Parkville, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Parkville, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly sharpens 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 appreciate exactly how devastating an impact your auto accident injuries have had on your life. You deserve a full financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is infrequently awarded in personal injury and auto accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.According 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 wreck cases you cannot 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 Parkville, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and demand that you receive maximum compensation for every single one of your damages. We have more than 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 refuses to see reason and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight in front of a judge and jury and use our excellent trial skills to win you the recovery you require. If you have been harmed in a motor vehicle 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? | Parkville, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including car wreck 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 significant exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against is a resident of the state of Missouri and temporarily goes outside the state, the time they are not in state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your family member was under the age of 21 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 someone else's negligent actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to speaking with a Parkville, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially to blame 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 to blame for the crash, your compensation will be decreased by the percentage of blame you share. For instance, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but determines that you were 30 percent at fault, your final compensation 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 car accident and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
