What Will Your Damages Total?
One of the biggest challenges for an auto accident lawyer is assessing the full value of damages incurred by a client. This includes not just damage to the vehicle itself, but also the pain, suffering and other expenses experienced by the client.
We will make sure you obtain a financial award that compensates you for the full amount of these losses, including:
- Damage to the vehicle
- Medical bills, doctor fees, prescription medicine expenses and rehabilitation costs
- Pain, suffering and emotional distress
- Lost wages, impaired earning power and loss of financial opportunities
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Disability, temporary impairment and permanent impairment
- Wrongful death of a family member or loved one
- Loss of consortium from injury to a spouse
Pursuing Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Claims
It is often possible to resolve a car wreck case by filing claims with the insurance provider of the responsible driver. But sometimes the responsible driver does not carry insurance, or they may not carry a sufficient policy to cover the full extent of damages for which he is legally liable.
We can help you determine how to proceed against a driver who is responsible for causing an accident, even if the driver is not properly insured. We are devoted to making sure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.
Answers To Common Questions About Car Accidents
Clients who come to us at Aldridge & Birdwhistell have many questions about auto wrecks and what we may be able to do to help. Here are answers to a few of the most common questions we receive.
Can you help me if the other driver did not carry insurance?
Yes. Our lawyers have helped drivers recover the cost of accidents caused by drivers who do not have sufficient insurance coverage to pay for the costs.
In some cases, your own insurance provider may be obligated for the reimbursements, but they may be reluctant to give you everything to which you are entitled. We help with policy review and negotiation of a fair settlement to make sure you receive all of the available benefits.
If your auto insurance policy does not cover accidents caused by an uninsured or underinsured motorist, then we use our knowledge of Kentucky law to pursue claims directly against the other driver.
What are my options after losing a loved one in a fatal crash?
The Kentucky wrongful death statute allows you to seek financial compensation for the loss of a loved one. When a person is killed through another person’s fault, Kentucky tort law allows a family member to bring a lawsuit to obtain financial compensation for their loss.
It is very important to meet with a skilled attorney as soon as possible. These wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of a death. This seems like a long time, but it can pass quickly as you grieve the loss.
What is included when talking about damages?
If the negligent behavior of someone else caused a car accident, then you are entitled to financial compensation to cover all the losses and expenses you suffer as a result. This includes not just damage to the vehicle itself, but also the pain, suffering and other expenses you experienced.
