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

Compensation in auto accident claims goes far beyond just repairing your car. Car collision injuries can cause an enormous 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 general, there are two categories of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim:

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 evaluates them. Your Burger Law auto crash lawyer will help you receive compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Sullivan, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • 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 serious injuries can be much more complex. For example, if you needed a joint replacement after your auto wreck, that will probably need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Sullivan, MO medical and economic experts will calculate and demonstrate how often 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 warehouse worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly diminish your capacity to work in the future. Your Burger Law Sullivan, MO auto crash lawyer will make sure that you recover compensation for every nickel 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 fair compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They recompense 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 Sullivan, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Sullivan, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly looks to imporove its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your perspective. We help juries relate to you as a person and appreciate precisely how disastrous an impact your car crash injuries have had on your life. You deserve the best possible financial recovery for the full scope 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 accident claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them think twice before committing the same negligence again.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to recover punitive damages your auto crash lawyer must:

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 motor vehicle 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 actions were.

When you hire the Sullivan, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and insist that you recover complete compensation for every single one of your damages. We have over 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 hurt in a car crash 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? | Sullivan, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto wreck 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 significant exceptions:

  1. If the person you are making a claim against lives in Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are out of 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 another driver's reckless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to getting in touch with a Sullivan, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially to blame for your accident, you can still be awarded 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, your final financial recovery would be $70,000.

Burger Law knows the complexities of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to lessen the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
