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

Compensation in auto crash claims should not just be for fixing your vehicle. Car crash injuries can carry an immense physical and emotional toll and in order to really recover you need fair and maximum compensation for every way your injury has impacted you. Generally, there are two kinds of damages you can be awarded 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 receive compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Troy, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, such as prescribed pain killers
    • Physical therapy
    • Other doctor appointments
    • Special equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair
    • In-home nursing

In cases where injuries are not too severe the evaluation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical expenses, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More grave injuries can be much more convoluted. 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 network of Troy, 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 special equipment such as a wheelchair, we will calculate how much money you will require for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a warehouse worker and is not able to lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably limit your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Troy, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you recover compensation for every nickel of the financial consequences your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to quantify, and often recovering full compensation for them will require the evaluation of a jury. They refer to the impact of your injuries on your emotional health and ability to enjoy life. Missouri Senate Bill 239 defines noneconomic damages as:

Your noneconomic damages will be greater 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 Troy, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Troy, MO auto crash lawyer team consistently hones its trial skills and knows how to win over juries. We help juries relate to you as a human being and acknowledge precisely how disastrous an impact your car crash 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 seldom awarded in personal injury and car 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 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 motor vehicle crash 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 Troy, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and insist that you are awarded full compensation for all 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 in front of a judge and jury and use our finely honed trial skills to win you the recovery you require. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle collision 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? | Troy, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Pursuant to Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including auto accident claims, have a statute of limitations of five years. That means that you have five years from the date your accident took place to file a claim. There are two noteworthy exceptions:

  1. If the defendant resides in Missouri and temporarily goes outside the state, the time they are out of 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 someone else's careless actions, the clock is already ticking. Do not wait to contacting a Troy, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially to blame for your accident, you can still collect 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 discovers 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 accident and get you the maximum compensation you are owed.
