Potential Compensation for Injured Car Accident Victims
Every car accident case is unique. Your potential compensation depends on your injuries. For example, severe injuries could lead to a permanent disability and warrant awards for future medical care. You do not want to accept a settlement only to find out that you did not get what you needed and deserved.
Our car accident lawyers can calculate your damages and prevent you from accepting an unfair settlement. We can negotiate with insurers by presenting evidence of your losses. We may consult with your doctors and gather your wage statements to support your claim.
The following types of damages may apply in your case:
You can seek compensation for your immediate medical expenses, as well as any ongoing care you may need. You may recover awards for:
- Ambulatory care
- In-home aid
- Home modifications
- Medical equipment
- Doctor’s visits
- Diagnostic tests
Your doctor needs time to assess your injuries and prescribe a treatment plan. We can help schedule your medical appointments so that you receive the treatment you need. Then, we can use your prognosis to calculate your medical expenses.
Depending on how severe your injuries are, you may miss work during recovery. You can seek lost wages, bonuses, benefits, and paid time off. We can help gather the necessary information to demonstrate your lost income.
Reduced Earning Capacity
You may also qualify for the difference between your pre-injury income and what you are able to earn now. For example, you may only be able to perform light-duty work if you suffer a permanent disability.
Pain and Suffering
You can seek awards for the physical pain and emotional anguish you endured. We can use various methods to calculate this loss.
We can also seek compensation for any property damage you suffered. We can seek awards to cover your car repairs, for example.
Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a loved one, your family deserves justice. We can file a wrongful death lawsuit and seek:
- Funeral expenses
- Burial or cremation costs
- Your loved one’s income
- Lost wages if you took time off work to care for your loved one
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering
There are also other damages that may apply. While you grieve your loss, we can handle the legal work for you.

Determining Legal Liability in Car Accidents
Various parties can cause or contribute to a car accident. You may assume the driver who hit you would be the only one at fault, but this may not be so. It is best not to speculate who is responsible when speaking with insurers.
We can gather evidence, such as the police report, to determine who was at fault. In some cases, a third party may bear full or partial responsibility. It all depends on the specific circumstances of your accident.
Some potentially liable parties can be:
The Driver Who Hit You
When drivers engage in negligent behavior, they risk the lives of everyone on the road. Our investigation may reveal that the driver who hit you could have prevented the accident. For example, their choice to read a text on their phone may have led to your rear-end accident. In this case, they breached their duty of care to you by driving while distracted.
A Third-Party Driver
Sometimes, the negligent actions of a third-party driver cause two other cars to collide. For example, the driver who hit you may have reacted to another driver who ran a red light.
The at-fault driver may have been working at the time of the accident. In this case, their employer may bear liability for their negligence.
An Auto Parts Manufacturer
An investigation may reveal that a defective auto part led to your car crash. In this case, the manufacturer may be liable. Other times, a mechanic may bear responsibility. For example, they may have installed a part incorrectly or failed to repair the vehicle adequately.
A Government Entity
It is even possible that the government entity that oversees the road is liable for your accident. For instance, the driver who hit you may have lost control of their car while driving on a road riddled with potholes. Likewise, the local municipality that failed to repair the road may be liable for the collision.
Holding a government entity responsible for an accident comes with its own set of procedures and challenges. We can help you, nonetheless.
