Who Is Responsible for My Damages After a Car Accident?

The party who caused the car accident is generally liable for damages under Kentucky’s personal injury laws. Car accidents in Bell County happen for a variety of reasons. Our lawyers investigate your car crash to determine how the accident happened and who is responsible for causing the accident.

Common factors that contribute to many of the car crashes in our area include:

  • Speeding
  • Following too closely or tailgating
  • Reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Fatigued and drowsy driving
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Road rage and aggressive driving
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Defective automobile parts
  • Road hazards, defectively designed roads, and improperly maintained roads

The factors that led to the cause of the accident determine who is liable for your injury claim. Other motorists cause most car accidents. However, a car manufacturer, government entity, or other party could also be liable in a car accident case.

Our Bell County car accident lawyers file claims against each party who could be liable for your damages to ensure we maximize your chance of recovering the highest amount of compensation available for your injury claim.

How Much Money is My Car Accident Claim Worth?

The value of your car accident claim depends on the facts and circumstances of your accident. Your injuries and financial losses are two of the most important factors that determine the value of your claim.

However, other factors such as shared liability for the cause of the crash, the availability of insurance coverage, and the parties involved in the case also impact how much you can expect to receive for a car accident claim.

Damages caused by a car accident often include:

  • The cost of reasonable and necessary medical treatment
  • Cost of in-home health care and personal care
  • Physical therapy and other forms of therapy, including occupational, mental health, and vocational therapy
  • The loss of income, including self-employment income, bonuses, wages, commissions, salaries, retirement, benefits, and other sources of income
  • Your pain and suffering, including physical, mental, and emotional suffering
  • Any permanent disabilities or impairments
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and quality of life
  • Other financial expenses related to the accident and your injuries

After you complete medical treatment, our Bell County car accident lawyers carefully analyze each of the damages caused by the car crash. We calculate the value of each of your damages and demand a settlement amount that is the maximum amount you could receive for your car accident claim.

What Should I Do After a Car Accident in Bell County?

If you are involved in a car crash, the steps you take after the accident can significantly impact your injury claim. To help strengthen your case:

  • Report the car crash to the police immediately
  • Document the accident scene by taking photographs and making a video
  • If possible, ask witnesses to give you their names and contact information
  • Do not admit fault, say you are sorry, or apologize for the accident
  • Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries (delays in medical care hurt your recovery and case)
  • Avoid talking to insurance adjusters until after you consult with a car accident lawyer
  • Do not talk about the accident or your injuries on social media (avoid using social media)
