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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond merely fixing your vehicle. Car wreck injuries can carry a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to really recover you need fair and maximum compensation for each way your injury has impacted your life. In general, there are two kinds of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are basically compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change depending on how an insurance company or jury assesses 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, including:
    • A Ray County, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Assistive devices 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 severe injuries can be much more intricate. For instant, if you needed a knee replacement after your vehicle wreck, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Ray County, 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 assistive devices such as a wheelchair, we will quantify 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 severely limit your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Ray County, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you are compensated for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to calculate, and often being awarded fair compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They compensate you for 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 Ray County, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Ray County, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently sharpens its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your perspective. We help juries relate to you as a person and appreciate precisely how catastrophic an impact your car wreck 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 infrequently awarded in personal injury and car collision 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 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 most motor vehicle accident 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 Ray County, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and demand that you collect complete compensation for all of your damages. We have more than 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 see reason and will not agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to court and use our finely honed trial skills to secure you the recovery you need. If you have been harmed in a car accident 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? | Ray County, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

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

  1. If the defendant resides in Missouri and temporarily goes outside the state, the time they are not in state does not count towards the five years.
  2. If you or your family member was under the age of 21 when the accident occurred, 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 somebody else's thoughtless actions, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before getting in touch with a Ray County, MO auto crash lawyer.

What if the Accident Was Partially My Fault? | Ray County, 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. That means that if you are found to be partially at fault for the wreck, 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 decides 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 of blame being placed on you and get you the best possible compensation you are owed.
