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

Compensation in auto accident claims should not just be for repairing your vehicle. Car crash injuries can lead to an enormous physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and full compensation for every 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 fundamentally compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change depending on how an insurance company or jury estimates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Raymore, 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 nursing

In cases where injuries are not too severe the evaluation of economic damages is as easy as summing up medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More serious injuries can be much more complex. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your auto collision, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Raymore, MO medical and economic experts will work out 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 calculate 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 significantly diminish your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Raymore, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you collect compensation for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to calculate, and often recovering maximum compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They refer to 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 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 Raymore, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Raymore, 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 catastrophic an impact your car crash injuries have had on your life. You deserve the maximum financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced because of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is infrequently awarded in personal injury and car crash claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and deter them from committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to receive 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 car 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 extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Raymore, 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 more than 70 years of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you you deserve.

If you have been harmed in a motor vehicle 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? | Raymore, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

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

  1. If the defendant 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 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 driver's thoughtless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in reaching out to a Raymore, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you can still 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 discovers that you were 30 percent at fault, the final amount your receive would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the ins and outs of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the maximum compensation you are owed.
