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

Compensation in auto collision claims goes far beyond merely repairing your vehicle. Car accident injuries can lead to a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to really recover you need fair and maximum compensation for every way your injury has affected your life. In general, there are two kinds 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 based 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 Riverside, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Follow-up appointments
    • Special equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home care

In cases where injuries are not too severe the evaluation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical expenses, car repair costs and how much wages you lost out on. More significant injuries can be much more convoluted. For instant, if you needed a hip replacement after your vehicle wreck, you will likely need a replacement at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Riverside, 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 construction worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will severely restrict your ability to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Riverside, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you collect compensation for every penny of the financial impact your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are tougher to calculate, and often collecting fair compensation for them will require the determination of a jury. They refer to 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 Riverside, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Riverside, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly sharpens its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and see precisely how devastating an impact your car collision 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 infrequently awarded in personal injury and auto collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them think twice before committing the same negligence again.Pursuant to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to be awarded punitive damages your auto crash lawyer has 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 crash cases you cannot prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, it is possible to collect them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Riverside, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you are awarded complete compensation for every single one of your damages. We have over seven decades of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that do not want to pay you what you are owed. When the defendant refuses to be reasonable and will not agree to a fair settlement in negotiations, we take the fight to trial and use our excellent trial skills to get you the recovery you require. If you have been hurt in a car wreck 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? | Riverside, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

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

  1. If the defendant resides in 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 somebody else's reckless actions, the clock is already ticking. There's no time to wait before contacting a Riverside, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to 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 crash, your compensation will be lowered 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 financial recovery 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 full compensation you are owed.
