The losses, injuries, and damages that follow a car wreck can be difficult to recover from without seeking financial compensation from the at-fault party. Get every penny you’re owed by working with a Caldwell car accident lawyer.

Getting hurt in a car accident can be one of the most horrifying experiences you will experience in your lifetime. Whether you suffered a spine injury or serious brain damage, your injuries can be catastrophic and debilitating. The situation can feel even more frustrating and overwhelming when your injuries are caused by the negligence of another.

Depending on your injuries, recovery can be expensive—potentially climbing to the hundreds of thousands of dollars—making it virtually impossible to repay. With that in mind, you deserve to be compensated when someone else caused your crash.

You have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit when negligence is involved. In order to do so, a Caldwell car accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates will help you fight the legal battle to recover the most compensation possible for your losses.


Identifying What Caused Your Collision

The first step in filing a claim is determining the cause of the crash and who was to blame. Your Caldwell car accident lawyer will thoroughly examine the evidence and investigate to verify cause and confirm fault.

Car wrecks happen for a wide variety of reasons, and unfortunately, most stem from carelessness on the part of one of the involved drivers. Common reasons for car crashes include the following:

  • Driver Error – Failing to either yield or make a complete stop at a traffic sign or signal, tailgating, failing to use turn signals
  • Distracted DrivingCell phone use, texting, eating, grooming
  • Driving While Intoxicated – driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs
  • Reckless Driving – Intentionally speeding and driving erratically and dangerously
  • Hazardous Roads – Roads that have potholes, broken guard rails, and poor shoulder drop-offs due to lack of maintenance

Many accidents are not what they first seem. Sometimes more than one person or party may be to blame, and it will be necessary to name them all in your claim in order to collect full compensation.


Insurance Companies Are Not Your Friend

It’s very important that you not accept a settlement offer from an insurance company after the accident. Insurers are in the business of making money, so they will offer you a small settlement that doesn’t cover all of your losses, hoping you will accept it without having a Caldwell car accident lawyer review it. It’s critical that you consult with an experienced attorney from our office who will assess the value of your claim and negotiate on your behalf.


Recovering Compensation for Your Future

Getting compensated for all your losses is important, as you may need medical care for your recovery well into the future—if not for the rest of your life. Assessing your claim includes compiling your monetary losses as well as damages related to your physical pain, emotional suffering, and how your enjoyment of life has decreased.

Some of the financial and non-economic losses that you may have suffered could include the following:

  • Current and future medical costs for procedures, surgeries, and medical devices
  • Physical and rehabilitative therapy
  • Lost income and future earning capacity
  • Repair or replacement of your vehicle
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost enjoyment of life
