Car accidents can turn lives upside down in an instant, but the impact can last for years. At Noakes Law, we understand the hardships that car accident victims face, and we’re here to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Navigating the Complexities of Car Accident Claims
When you’ve been injured in a car accident, you need a seasoned attorney by your side. Our Lexington car accident attorneys have successfully handled numerous cases for individuals who’ve suffered serious injuries in wrecks.
Your Legal Team for Fair Compensation
We offer a free consultation to discuss your car accident claim, evaluate its value, and guide you through the process. If you choose us, we’ll work diligently to protect your rights and secure the compensation you deserve.
The Car Accident Settlement Process
In Kentucky, car liability insurance is mandatory. This coverage steps in when a driver’s negligence leads to an accident. If we can establish that another driver is responsible for your accident, we’ll file a claim on their insurance policy.
Typically, the car accident settlement process includes:
- Evidence Gathering: Gathering information at the accident scene, including insurance details from all drivers and witness contact information.
- Fault Determination: Analyzing evidence to establish fault and review existing insurance policies.
- Medical Treatment: Receiving necessary treatment for physical and psychological injuries.
- Claim Submission: Submitting a claim to the at-fault driver’s insurer and negotiating a fair settlement.
- Lawsuit Filing: If needed, filing a personal injury lawsuit to protect your right to damages.
Our team at Noakes Law will handle all the legal work, communication, and negotiation for you. Although most cases aim for a settlement within six months, some disputes over fault and injuries can extend this timeline.
Establishing Fault for a Car Crash
A driver is at fault when they fail to drive with the necessary care and cause harm to others. Common forms of negligence include:
- Texting while driving
- Running red lights
- Driving while fatigued
- Driving under the influence
Sometimes, multiple drivers share fault for an accident, and we’ll work to allocate responsibility fairly.
Compensation for Your Car Accident
Car accidents come with significant financial burdens, including immediate out-of-pocket expenses and potential long-term impacts on your ability to work. We typically seek compensation for:
- Lost income or wages due to injuries preventing you from working.
- Property damage, such as vehicle repair or replacement.
- Medical expenses, including surgeries, diagnostic tests, and rehabilitation.
- Pain and suffering to account for the intangible losses associated with bodily injuries.
- Future losses, including anticipated medical expenses and diminished earning capacity.
Each accident is unique, and the amount you can seek in compensation depends on various factors, such as the severity of your injuries and their impact on your life.
Overcoming Challenges to Full Compensation
Car accident victims may face obstacles when pursuing compensation, but we know how to enhance your chances of a fair settlement:
- Comparative Fault: Kentucky follows a “pure” comparative fault system, meaning you can seek compensation from others as long as you aren’t 100% at fault. Any compensation you receive is reduced proportionally to your level of fault.
- Insufficient Insurance: Kentucky mandates liability coverage, but minimum coverage may not suffice for severe injuries. We’ll help identify other potential sources of compensation, like underinsured motorist coverage.
- Failure to Mitigate Damages: To maximize compensation, victims must take reasonable steps to minimize their injuries following an accident, such as seeking medical treatment and following medical advice.
Choosing Noakes Law means you’ll have a dedicated legal team committed to maximizing your compensation. We’ll explore all possible avenues to secure a fair settlement.
Hit & Run Accidents
When a driver flees the scene of an accident, you might wonder if you can still receive compensation. The good news is that we’ve successfully obtained compensation for hit and run victims.
First, report the accident to the police to initiate a search for the driver. Share any details you have about the driver or their vehicle, such as make, model, and color. If the driver is located, we can pursue a claim with their insurer or file a lawsuit.
Second, work with our firm to explore whether your uninsured motorist insurance can cover the accident. Additionally, we’ll discuss claims on collision coverage for car repairs and using medical payments for hospital care.
