Car Accident FAQ

Am I able to file a car accident claim?

Your ability to pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim after a car accident will depend on many factors. Generally, you may have a claim if:

  • Another driver was at fault for your accident.
  • Your accident was caused by a vehicle defect.
  • A commercial truck or business is responsible for your accident.
  • You were hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver and have UM /UIM coverage.
  • You were a passenger in an Uber or Lyft or were struck by a ride-share while they were carrying a passenger or on their way to pick one up.

There are many factors to consider when evaluating your grounds for a claim – including the statute of limitations. Because your claim may be barred if the statutory deadline expires, we strongly advise all victims to seek legal help as soon as possible. 

Who can I hold responsible for my car accident?

It depends. Determining fault and financial responsibility in a car accident lawsuit can be the most important part of your case, and it will require a fact-specific investigation.

At Drake Law Firm, our attorneys and support staff scour all reports, witness statements, and findings obtained from independent investigations to determine who may have caused your accident and whether they can be held liable for your damages.

Depending on the facts of your accident, you may be able to seek compensation from:

  • A negligent driver’s insurance company
  • Your own insurance company (i.e. through a UM / UIM claim)
  • A commercial insurance policy carried by a trucking company or delivery driver service
  • A ride-share company’s insurance, if you were injured in an Uber or Lyft accident
  • A product manufacturer responsible for defective vehicles or auto parts

How does compensation work?

Auto accident injury cases take time, and victims need to treat their injuries and recover as much as they can before a case is settled. This approach allows us to better understand your injuries, medical expenses, and any future damages that need to be considered when seeking compensation. 

Though it is not easy to identify an exact value for your case in its early stages, our attorneys can explain the damages to which you may be entitled. This may include compensation for:

  • Medical bills / future medical expenses 
  • Lost income and lost future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • A loved one’s loss of consortium
  • Vehicle / property damage

Should I speak to the insurance company?

You should report the car accident to your own insurance company, but you should be careful about any calls from the other party’s insurer. 

Insurance companies are not on your side. They represent their policyholders and their own interests. They say many things to make their case stronger and avoid paying what you deserve. Remember:

  1. If the insurance company calls, you can tell them you have legal representation and that they can speak with your attorney. You have no obligation to speak with insurers.
  2. Be wary of settlement offers, especially before you know the full scope of your damages. Insurance carriers want to quickly settle claims for less than victims deserve. If they make an offer, we can help determine if it is fair or whether you may be entitled to more. 
  3. Insurance companies are corporations that put profits over people, and they use many tactics to pay as little as possible. That includes getting you to admit fault or using your own words against you.
