Auto Accidents

Whether you have been in car accident driving home from work or simply going from one place to another, dealing with its consequences can be overwhelming. Not only your vehicle is damaged, but you have injuries and the insurance company is fighting over your fair compensation, for medical bills and loss of wages. This is when our attorneys can help you. At Dodds Law Firm we have been representing individuals injured in car accidents for over 30 years to obtain payment for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering.

A car accident is a traumatic event on its own and you should not be fighting the insurance company alone. Let our experienced car accident attorneys fight for you whether to obtain a fair car accident settlement or to take your car accident lawsuit to trial. We have decades of experience and we have recovered millions of dollars for our clients. Contact us for a free evaluation of your case.

Back injuries, broken bones, muscle injuries, paralysis, head injuries, whiplash, spinal cord injuries, wrongful death, loss of limbs, scars…Most insurance companies will work to categorize your injuries as temporary, rather than permanent. The success of your case depends on the expertise of your lawyer to collect and present evidences, especially when it comes to recover additional damages for pain and suffering. If you are injured, the Dodd Law Firm can help you file a lawsuit to claim compensation that goes beyond what is provided by insurance claims. Medical bills can add up quickly, especially if you are unable to work. Our attorneys have recovered millions of dollars for clients injured in car accidents as you can read on our Case Results page.

If you are injured in a car crash, we will help you recover economic damages and non-economic damages.

The economic damages attempt to compensate for monetary loss and include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity

The non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional pain
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

We have assisted both drivers and passengers that have been in car accidents. If you have been injured in a car accident that was not your fault, fill our free no obligation case review form and one of our attorneys will be in touch with you.

Underinsured/Uninsured Motorist Claims

If the insurance available to the person who caused your injury is not enough to cover your losses and expenses, our attorneys will look to other sources to obtain full recovery for you, including:

  • Uninsured motorist
  • Under Insured Motorist
  • Dram Shop

Your insurance company pays when the other driver doesn’t have any auto insurance. Uninsured coverage pays for many of the things that the other driver’s insurance would have paid if it existed.

Underinsured motorist coverage is not the same as uninsured motorist coverage. Underinsured applies when the person who caused your car accident has insurance but the policy limits are not high enough to fully compensate you for your losses.

An example: The driver who caused the car accident has insurance that pays only $20,000.00 for each person injured in a car accident and your losses are worth $100,000.00. If you have underinsured coverage, you will be able to collect the driver’s policy of $20,000.00 and then look to your underinsured coverage for the remainder of your damages.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Represents one component of a car accident caused by a drunk driver. For example, if you were injured by a drunk driver to whom a bar sold alcohol when he or she was obviously intoxicated, your dram shop claim would be against the bar.
