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

Compensation in auto wreck claims goes far beyond just repairing your car. Car crash injuries can lead to a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to really recover you need fair and full compensation for each way your injury has impacted you and your loved ones. Typically, there are two kinds of damages you can be awarded in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are in essence 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 recover compensation for:

  • Property damage, for example damage to your vehicle car
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical expenses, past and future, including:
    • A Union, 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 valuation of economic damages is as easy as totaling medical bills, car repair costs and how much wages you lost out on. More grave injuries can be much more complex. For instant, if you needed a knee replacement after your auto crash, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's group of Union, MO medical and economic experts will figure 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 determine how much money you will need for those replacements. Likewise, if you were a construction worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will significantly decrease your ability to work in the future. Your Burger Law Union, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you are compensated for every dollar of the financial consequences your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult 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 well-being and ability to enjoy life. Missouri Senate Bill 239 defines noneconomic damages as:

Your noneconomic damages will be higher 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 Union, MO jury to know how to calculate. At Burger Law, our Union, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly hones its trial skills and knows how to get juries to see things from your perspective. We help juries relate to you as a human being and appreciate precisely how disastrous an impact your motor vehicle collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve the maximum financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced as a result of your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is infrequently awarded in personal injury and motor vehicle collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the negligent party and make them reconsider before committing the same negligence again.According 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 auto wreck 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 Union, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we stand by your side and insist that you collect maximum compensation for all of your damages. We have over 70 years 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 will not see reason and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in negotiations, we take the fight to court and use our finely honed trial skills to secure you the recovery you need. If you have been injured in a auto crash 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? | Union, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

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

  1. If the person you are making a claim against is a resident of the state of Missouri and temporarily goes outside the state, the time they are out of 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 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 delay in talking to a Union, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you were partially at fault 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 at fault for the collision, 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 determines that you were 30 percent at fault, your final compensation 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 car accident and get you the best possible compensation you are owed.
