How You Can Help Your Case

While our team will manage the legal aspects of your case, there are a few things you can do to help your case:

Get Medical Help Immediately

If you did not receive medical attention at the scene of the crash, head to the emergency room or schedule an appointment with your doctor.

Injuries do not always show up right after the accident; by having a doctor check you out, you can tie any injuries you suffered to the accident.

Follow Your Doctor’s Orders

Obey any orders your doctor gives you. This will protect both your physical health and your right to recover compensation. If you disobey your doctor’s orders or skip appointments, the insurer can use that to claim you are exaggerating or contributing to your injuries.

Do Not Speak to Anyone from the Insurance Company

Soon after the accident, you will likely receive a call from the insurance company — either yours or the other party’s. While the insurance adjuster on the other line might seem eager to help, they are not. The insurance company hired them to save money; to do so, they may try to trick you into saying something to jeopardize your claim.

This could be something as innocent as apologizing for the accident or saying that you feel okay.

If you receive a call from the insurance adjuster, tell them you will call back later and call us immediately: 800-800-4600. We can handle all communication with the insurer to protect your right to recover compensation.

Run Any Settlement Offers By Our Team

Do not accept the first settlement offer without discussing it with us first. Most settlement offers will be for much less than you deserve. If you accept the first offer you receive, you cannot come back and ask for more later.

Our team will determine the value of your case and negotiate with the insurance company to get the settlement you deserve.

Recoverable Damages in a Bowling Green Car Accident Case

While the damages you may be able to recover differ from case to case, we can help you understand the most common damages available in a Kentucky car accident case. This includes:

Medical Care and Related Costs

While your no-fault insurance may cover a portion of your medical care, you may quickly reach the limits of that policy. We can help you pursue additional compensation by holding the at-fault driver liable. The damages you recover could include:

  • Ambulance transportation
  • Emergency department evaluation and treatment
  • Hospitalization and inpatient care
  • Follow-up care
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Ongoing care costs
  • Prescription medication and medical devices
  • Other costs related to your injuries or treatment

Other Expenses and Losses

Almost any accident-related expense can fall under the broad category of economic damages. We can attempt to recover any loss we can document with a receipt, bill, or other paperwork. This may include:

  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Repair or replacement of your vehicle
  • Replacement of other personal property damaged in the crash
  • Loss of services
  • Out-of-pocket expenses related to the crash

Noneconomic Losses

Noneconomic losses, commonly known as pain and suffering damages, are more subjective. This means we cannot calculate them using receipts or other documentation. However, we can discuss your case with your friends and family and experts to establish how your accident has affected you. This will help us put a value on these losses, which can make up a substantial part of your award. These damages may include:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Other psychological damages

Wrongful Death Action

If you lost a loved one because of the injuries they sustained in a Bowling Green car accident, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death action. This could bring compensation for expenses including funeral and burial costs, as well as offer a way to hold the liable party accountable for their negligence. We can review your case and explain your rights. Call us today at 800-800-4600 to get started.
