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

Compensation in auto accident claims should not just be for fixing your car. Car accident injuries can cause 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 most cases, there are two kinds of damages you can be awarded in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are basically compensation for the financial losses you have sustained because of your accident, and do not change based 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 capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Rolla, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for example prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Follow-up 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, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More grave injuries can be much more complex. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your auto accident, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Rolla, MO medical and economic experts will figure 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 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 notably restrict your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Rolla, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you receive compensation for every penny of the financial consequences your injury has had on you.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to calculate, and often receiving maximum compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They refer to 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 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 Rolla, MO jury to know how to quantify. At Burger Law, our Rolla, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently looks to imporove its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and see exactly how destructive 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 crash 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 collect 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 most auto collision 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 Rolla, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist 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 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 excellent trial skills to get you the recovery you need. If you have been injured in a auto 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? | Rolla, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

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

  1. If the defendant lives 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 loved one was under the age of 21 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 another driver's negligent behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to speaking with a Rolla, MO auto crash lawyer.

What if the Accident Was Partially My Fault? | Rolla, 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. Meaning that if you are found to be partially to blame for the crash, your compensation will be diminished 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, the final amount your receive would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the complexities of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to lessen the amount you are being blamed for the auto collision and get you the full compensation you are owed.
