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

Compensation in auto wreck claims should not be limited to fixing your vehicle. Car collision injuries can carry a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and full compensation for each way your injury has affected you and your loved ones. Typically, there are two categories of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim:

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 assesses them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Raytown, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example 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 summing up medical expenses, car repair costs and how much wages you lost out on. More significant injuries can be much more intricate. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your car accident, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Raytown, MO medical and economic experts will calculate and demonstrate how frequently you will need a new replacement and how much it will cost, accounting for inflation. If you need special equipment such as a wheelchair, we will quantify how much money you will require for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a construction worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will severely restrict your ability to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Raytown, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you recover compensation for every dime of the financial consequences your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to assess, and often being awarded full compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They compensate you for the impact of your injuries on your emotional health and capacity 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 Raytown, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Raytown, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly looks to imporove 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 motor vehicle crash injuries have had on your life. You deserve a great financial recovery for the full scope of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is rarely awarded in personal injury and car accident 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 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 auto 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 Raytown, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and demand that you receive full compensation for every single one of your damages. We have more than seven decades 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 refuses to be reasonable and will not agree to a fair settlement in negotiations, we take the fight in front of a judge and jury and use our great trial skills to secure you the recovery you need. If you have been harmed in a car crash 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? | Raytown, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under 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 your accident took place to file a claim. There are two notable exceptions:

  1. If the defendant resides in Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are not in state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your loved one was under the age of 21 when the accident happened, 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 negligent actions, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before calling a Raytown, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to be awarded compensation under Missouri law. Missouri is a pure comparative fault state. Meaning that if you are found to be partially at fault for the collision, your compensation will be reduced by the percentage of blame you share. For example, if a jury awards you $100,000 for an accident, but finds that you were 30 percent at fault, your final compensation would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the ins and outs of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to lessen the amount you are being blamed for the motor vehicle collision and get you the best possible compensation you are owed.
