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

Compensation in auto crash claims goes far beyond just fixing your vehicle. Car collision injuries can cause an enormous physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and full compensation for each way your injury has affected your life. In most cases, there are two kinds of damages you can recover in a personal injury claim:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are essentially compensation that can be objectively verified and do not change depending on how an insurance company or jury estimates 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 capacity
  • Medical expenses, past and future, such as:
    • A Webb City, MO emergency room visit
    • Medications, for instance prescribed pain killers
    • Physical rehabilitation
    • Other doctor 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 bills, mechanics' bills and how much time you had to miss from work. More grave injuries can be much more convoluted. For instant, if you needed a hip replacement after your car wreck, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Webb City, MO medical and economic experts will work out and demonstrate how frequently 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 calculate how much money you will require for those replacements. Similarly, if you were a construction worker and can now no longer safely lift more than 20 pounds, that will notably decrease your capacity to provide for your family in the future. Your Burger Law Webb City, MO auto crash lawyer will ensure that you collect compensation for every dime of the financial impact your injury has had on you and your loved ones.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are harder to assess, and often being awarded 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 capacity 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 Webb City, MO jury to know how to assess. At Burger Law, our Webb City, MO auto crash lawyer team constantly sharpens 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 see exactly how destructive an impact your car wreck injuries have had on your life. You deserve the maximum financial recovery for the full extent of the consequences you have experienced due to your injury.

Punitive Damages

A third type of damages is not commonly 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.According to Missouri Senate Bill 591, to recover 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 most car collision cases you cannot 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 Webb City, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight by your side and demand that you recover maximum 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 will not see reason and refuses to agree to a fair settlement in mediation, we take the fight to court and use our great trial skills to win you the recovery you require. If you have been hurt in a auto collision because somebody else 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? | Webb City, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all tort claims, including motor vehicle crash 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 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 when the accident happened, or was "mentally incapacitated," you have 5 years from the the date you turn 21 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 Webb City, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to recover 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 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 ins and outs of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to lessen the amount of blame being placed on you and get you the full compensation you are owed.
