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

Compensation in auto crash claims should not be limited to repairing your vehicle. Car crash injuries can carry a colossal physical and emotional toll and in order to genuinely recover you need fair and full compensation for every way your injury has affected your life. Typically, there are two types of damages you can receive in a personal injury case:

Economic Damages

Economic damages are essentially 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 Winston, 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 totaling medical bills, mechanics' bills and how much wages you lost out on. More grave injuries can be much more intricate. For instant, if you needed a hip replacement after your car accident, that will likely need to be replaced at some point. Burger Law's auto crash lawyer team's network of Winston, 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 special equipment such as a wheelchair, we will calculate 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 notably restrict your capacity to make a living in the future. Your Burger Law Winston, MO auto crash lawyer will make certain that you are compensated for every dime of the financial consequences your injury has had on your life.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages are more difficult to calculate, and often being awarded full compensation for them will require the judgment of a jury. They compensate you for 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 Winston, MO jury to know how to put a number on. At Burger Law, our Winston, 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 understand precisely how catastrophic an impact your car collision injuries have had on your life. You deserve the maximum financial recovery for the full scope 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 collision claims. Punitive damages serve to punish the at-fault 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 most auto crash cases you cannot prove that somebody intentionally harmed you. However, in cases of extreme recklessness such as drunk driving, it is possible to collect them. We seek punitive damages when we sue drunk drivers so they know exactly how extreme their negligence was.

When you hire the Winston, MO auto crash lawyer at Burger Law, we fight on your behalf and insist that you get complete compensation for every single one of your damages. We have more than seven decades of combined experience standing up to bullies like resistant insurance companies that refuse to pay you what you are owed. When the defendant refuses to be reasonable and will not agree to a fair settlement in mediation, 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 car collision because someone 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? | Winston, MO Auto Crash Lawyer

Under Missouri Revised Statute §516.120, all personal injury claims, including auto crash 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 important exceptions:

  1. If the defendant is a resident of the state of Missouri and temporarily leaves the state, the time they are out of state does not count against the five years.
  2. If you or your family member was less than 21 years old when the accident took place, 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 somebody else's reckless behavior, the clock is already ticking. Do not delay in getting in touch with a Winston, MO auto crash lawyer.

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

If you contributed to your accident, you may still be able to be awarded 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 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 complexities of Missouri law better than anyone. We will fight hard to reduce the amount you are being blamed for the motor vehicle accident and get you the best possible compensation you deserve.
