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

Compensation in auto accident claims goes far beyond merely repairing your vehicle. Car wreck injuries can carry an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to truly recover you need fair and maximum compensation for every way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. Generally, there are two kinds of damages you can receive in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are basically 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 recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Republic, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for instance prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Assistive devices 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 totaling medical expenses, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More grave injuries can be much more convoluted. For example, if you needed a knee replacement after your vehicle accident, you will probably need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's team of Republic, 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 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 is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably diminish your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Republic, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you are compensated for every dollar of the financial consequences your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to calculate, and often collecting fair compensation for them will require the determination 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 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 Republic, MO jury to know how to assess. At Burger Law, our Republic, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently sharpens its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a person and acknowledge exactly how catastrophic 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 not commonly awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle crash claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault party and make them think twice before 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 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 Republic, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and insist that you are awarded 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 will not be reasonable and will not agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to trial and use our finely honed trial skills to get you the recovery you require. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident because another driver 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? | Republic, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

According to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including car accident claims, have a statute of limitations of five years, meaning that you have five years from the date of your accident to file a claim. There are two noteworthy exceptions:

  1. If the defendant lives 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 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 careless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to speaking with a Republic, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially to blame for 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 to blame for the wreck, 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 decides that you were 30 percent at fault, the final amount your receive would be $70,000.

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