Who is at Fault in a Car Accident? – A Conversation With Darryl Isaacs
Attorney Darryl Isaacs sat down to address questions about car accidents and fault in a recent radio episode of “Ask The Hammer,” the podcast exploring the legal matters that matter most. Play the episode directly below.
Last May, two people were killed and a third person was seriously injured in a collision at the intersection of Tudor and South Hendricks County Road. An SUV ran a stop sign and crashed into a pickup truck, which had the right of way. The driver of the pickup truck and the passenger in the SUV were pronounced dead at the scene, while the driver who ran the stop sign was seriously injured. News reports stated that DUI may have caused this tragedy.

There’s nothing worse than to have your life suddenly torn apart by a catastrophic accident. When you are seriously injured or grieving the loss of a beloved family member, you’re already hurting badly and wondering how you can face the future. The last thing you need is to be re-victimized by the liable party’s insurance company.
Your Auto Accident Lawyer Will Demand a Fair Settlement Offer After a Serious Accident
Insurance companies do not profit by offering fair settlements to car accident victims. The goal is to pay out as little money as possible in accident claims. If the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier can find a way to escape liability completely, they will do so. They are not in business to help victims make ends meet after they’ve been seriously injured in a car accident. Their loyalty is to their shareholders and their company’s bottom line. Because a serious car accident with disabling injuries or fatalities can easily cost the insurance company millions of dollars to settle, they are aggressive in investigating the accident to look for any evidence they can use to blame the other driver.
If you do not have an experienced accident injury lawyer to advise you regarding your rights, the insurance company will probably try to persuade you to accept a low settlement. They may make an early settlement offer if they are nervous about how serious your injuries will prove to be. In exchange for the settlement, they will ask you to sign a release of liability form. Once you sign their form, you cannot recover any more money from the liable insurance company or your own insurance carrier for your injuries if they prove to be more serious later on.
Another tactic which insurance companies frequently use to reduce the amount of money they pay out in claims is to postpone settling until a victim is financially destitute and desperate enough to accept a low offer. An experienced attorney will demand that they settle your claim in a timely manner or face a car accident lawsuit.
Our Attorneys Have Experience in Helping Accident Victims With Serious Injuries
A common misconception is that if you hire an attorney to help you with an accident claim, you will wind up with very little money left after paying your attorney fees. In truth, victims who enlist the help of an experienced attorney to investigate the accident and build a strong case for liability end up with a settlement offer that accurately reflects their damages.
Insurance companies do not want you to hire a car accident lawyer to negotiate a fair settlement which will cover all your current and future damages, including:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Wrongful death
