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

Compensation in auto accident claims goes far beyond merely fixing your car. Car accident injuries can lead to an immense 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. In most cases, there are two types of damages you can be awarded 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 evaluates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you collect compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Pevely, 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 valuation of economic damages is as easy as summing up medical bills, car repair costs and how much wages you lost out on. More grave injuries can be much more convoluted. For example, if you needed a hip replacement after your auto collision, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Pevely, MO medical and economic experts will calculate and demonstrate how frequently you will need a new replacement and how much it will cost, adjusting for inflation. If you need assistive devices such as a wheelchair, we will compute how much money you will require for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a warehouse worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly decrease your ability to work in the future. Your Burger Law Pevely, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you receive compensation for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to quantify, and often receiving full compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They recompense you for 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 Pevely, MO jury to know how to assess. At Burger Law, our Pevely, 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 exactly how catastrophic an impact your motor vehicle crash injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and auto wreck claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to recover 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 accident 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 extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Pevely, 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 more than 70 years of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that do not want to pay you what you you deserve. When the defendant will not see reason and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to court and use our finely honed trial skills to win you the recovery you need. 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? | Pevely, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including motor vehicle 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 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 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 someone else's negligent actions, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before calling a Pevely, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault for 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 to blame for the accident, 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 decides 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 best possible compensation you deserve.
