Who is Responsible for Your Auto Accident?

Determining liability is one of the most important parts of a personal injury case, and our team at Drake Law Firm works diligently to investigate your accident and determine who can be held at fault. 

Potential defendants in car accident claims may include:

  • Negligent motorists, including drunk drivers
  • Rideshare companies, in cases of Uber or Lyft accidents
  • Commercial trucking or delivery companies
  • Product manufacturers, in cases involving auto defects

In addition to identifying the right defendants, plaintiffs in motor vehicle accident cases will also need to establish a few essential elements of negligence. This means you must prove:

  • A legal duty was owed to you by the defendant, such as a driver’s duty to safely operate their vehicle.
  • A breach of duty, such a distracted driver’s failure to uphold their duty of care when driving.
  • A defendant’s negligence or wrongful act is more likely than not causing your injuries.
  • You suffered actual damages as a result of the crash.

Car Accident Compensation: Your Right to Damages

Victims of personal injury have the right to hold at-fault parties accountable for damages. Depending on the facts of your case, this may include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Lost future wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property loss / vehicle damage
  • Other economic and non-economic losses

Because damages can quickly add up, especially in cases of serious injury or wrongful death, victims must ensure they are able to seek the full amount of compensation they need. This will require exploring options for available insurance coverage with the help of an attorney, including potential coverage from sources such as: 

  • Third-party liability insurance from a defendant driver’s auto insurance.
  • Commercial insurance policies carried by corporate defendants (i.e. a trucking company, rideshare company, or automaker).
  • Insurance carried by a subcontractor, contractor, or another third-party responsible for a vehicle accident on a construction site.
  • A third-party’s homeowner’s insurance coverage if accidents occurred on private property. 
  • Your own insurance policy, if you have additional coverage such as uninsured / underinsured (UM / UIM) insurance.

At Drake Law Firm, we help clients evaluate all avenues for potential insurance coverage because we know it can maximize their financial recoveries. We take on powerful insurance companies every day, and we know how to fight back against their tactics to see that our clients are made whole.

Recent results we have obtained for car accident victims include:

  • $2.65 million for a pedestrian hit by a negligent driver
  • $2.5 million for a victim injured in a T-bone collision
  • $1.23 million for a motorcyclist struck by vehicle
  • $1 million for a passenger injured in a rideshare accident
