If you were recently hurt in a car crash, you may feel hopeless and alone. In addition to dealing with painful injuries that put you out of work for weeks or months, your vehicle also may have been totaled in the accident, leaving you without a reliable form of transportation. To make matters worse, you may not have the money to pay for your medical bills and vehicle repair costs, especially when you aren’t earning the paycheck your family depends on.
At Matt Hardin Law, our Paducah car accident lawyers understand how difficult this time can be for your entire family. We’ve helped many people in your situation, and we have a strong track record of success when it comes to helping innocent victims get compensation for their accident-related expenses. You shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for a car crash that wasn’t your fault, and our legal team will fight to make sure you don’t.
In addition to being traumatic and painful, car accidents can also be extremely expensive. Too often, victims are left dealing with huge bills that they can’t afford years after their accidents occurred and long after their injuries have healed. Our legal team knows that many innocent victims lose their life savings and are even forced into bankruptcy just to stay on top of their accident-related expenses.
While we can’t change the outcome of the accident, we can fight to help you get full compensation for your bills, including:
Getting treated by a doctor or a team of healthcare professionals at a hospital is the most important thing that you and your loved ones can do if you were injured in an accident. Unfortunately, those treatments can be extremely expensive, and in many cases, they may be necessary for weeks, months, or even years into the future. Our attorneys will calculate how much you’ll owe for medical care right now and for years to come when we negotiate with the insurance company.
The initial recovery period after your accident can last for several days or even weeks. During that time, you may be unable to get out of bed, let alone go to work. And for some victims, the injuries they suffered prevent them from returning to work for even longer periods of time—if they’re capable of going back at all. If your injuries forced you to change careers and take a lower-paying job, or if you’re unable to return to work in any capacity, we can help you get compensation that will cover those losses.
Not all damages are objective and easily calculated, but they are just as real to victims as medical bills and lost income. Because of their traumatic nature, car accidents can leave victims with serious psychological and emotional distress. Victims may suffer from loss of consortium if their partner was seriously injured or killed, and they also may develop anxiety and depression. Some victims may even become fearful of riding in vehicles, making it difficult to live normal lives. And when injuries are severe, victims may have trouble enjoying the things they used to. We take these factors into account when we file claims for compensation on behalf of victims like you.
All too often, auto accident victims get past the initial biggest hurdle after a car crash—the recovery period—only to find that they’re facing a new challenge that they may not be equipped to handle. The Paducah auto accident attorneys at Matt Hardin Law know that dealing with the aftermath of a car accident is a new, uncomfortable, and unfamiliar experience for many people, particularly when it involves pursuing compensation that goes far beyond what the insurance company initially offers.
Our legal team knows the processes that insurance companies use to get victims to accept “lowball” settlement offers, and we know how to stay one step ahead. By calculating your full accident-related expenses and gathering evidence that proves both the extent of your injuries and the other driver’s negligence, we can create a claim that the insurance company and its team of adjusters simply can’t ignore.
