Car Accident

Many car accidents are caused by the negligence or reckless driving of others. Unfortunately, over 30,000 people each year suffer wrongful death from car accidents that were not their fault. Even if the accident does not result in death, you may suffer serious injuries that impact your ability to work and take care of your family. Reach out to a car accident lawyer.

It is crucial to contact the skilled lawyers at TopDog Law immediately after the accident and prior to speaking with the insurance company. We have proven procedures in place to conduct a free insurance review, a comprehensive investigation of the accident, and maximize your compensation or settlement.

When is the Other Driver at Fault?
  Can I Get Compensation for my Car Accident Injury?

First and foremost, you are always compensated for your injury in nearly every state. The first source of compensation is your insurance company. In many states, every driver is required to have insurance. This is what is called a “no-fault state” for car insurance coverage, meaning that you are compensated by the insurance company whether or not you or the other driver caused the crash.

Usually, your insurance company will cover up to $15,000 worth of damages. However, working with a car accident attorney can often help you recover much more than what the insurance provider is prepared to offer for your injuries.

In an at-fault state, car accident claims are handled a little differently; the insurance companies of both drivers will make a decision regarding who is at fault for the car accident and to what percentage. Liability in car accident cases in these states is often not straightforward. 

Working with a car accident attorney will help ensure that your share of fault, if any, is not exaggerated or misrepresented in your claim and that you’re able to pursue the full amount of compensation you’re entitled to. 

If your injuries are more severe and go beyond this, the question becomes who is at fault?

What Kind of Injury Will I Need to Prove for Additional Compensation?

It is easy to dismiss a car accident as a fender-bender. Particularly when a car is traveling at a slow rate of speed, many mistakenly assume he or she will walk away from the accident with no injuries. Far too often, however, symptoms like whiplash present themselves days after the accident. While whiplash may seem insignificant at first, it can cause permanent neck injuries that impact you for the rest of your life.

More serious car accident injuries that often occur following a car accident are brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs following a car accident far more frequently than most people realize. The same is true for a spinal cord injury (SCI). Importantly, the symptoms of these more serious injuries may take weeks to set in following a car accident.

Regardless of what kind of injuries you sustained in your car accident case, you deserve full and fair compensation when someone else’s negligence is involved. An experienced car accident attorney at TopDog Law can help make sure that your car accident claim is valued accurately and that your compensation includes not only the cost of your medical bills and expenses but also all additional damages associated with the crash.

Lost Wages, Earnings, or Income

When you're involved in a car crash, you'll likely be facing more than just medical bills and time off of work; you might be feeling the financial impact of missed income, lost job opportunities, or lost benefits for months or even years to come. Your car accident settlement should include financial compensation that accounts for all of those losses.

Pain and Suffering

A car accident with a negligent driver can leave you with emotional and psychological effects, even long after the accident happened. Car accident victims deserve to know their legal rights to be compensated not only for their financial losses, but also for the pain, suffering, and life-changing effects that an accident can have on an individual and their loved ones. A compassionate auto accident attorney will work hard to make sure that these losses are treated seriously in your personal injury claim.
