Physical injuries from car accidents are talked about commonly, but what’s not talked about as much is the emotional trauma that victims of car accidents can suffer from long after the bruises and broken bones have healed. Car accidents are traumatic events that can leave emotional injuries, especially when the collision is dangerous enough to be life-threatening.
Self-driving cars exist and the way they operate advances every day, which is hard to keep up with, especially when you’re not a tech guru. These self-driving cars, otherwise known as autonomous vehicles, have varying degrees of human intervention while driving. Most still have a person physically behind the wheel, but the car is able to steer, accelerate, and brake by itself. More advanced autonomous vehicles can even interpret their surroundings and navigate without the driver.
Most of the time after a car accident, you’ll be dealing with your insurance company. You’ll need to review your policy, determine if the other person’s policy can pay for any of your damages, and calculate what you believe you’re owed for your damages—which could involve medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Unfortunately, insurance policies are complex and it’s not uncommon for drivers to be unaware of aspects of their policy and what their rights or obligations are. Adjusters may try to take advantage of that to reduce what their company pays out. But what happens if the adjuster makes an error? Let’s take a look at how you know if your insurance company made a mistake with your claim after an accident.
When you are driving on the highway, you might think that the guardrails on the side of the road are there for your protection. While that may have been the intent when the Federal Highway Administration approved the guardrails, it turns out that they are not always efficient at protecting drivers and passengers in an accident. In fact, sometimes they can cause serious injury and even death.
After an accident that causes injuries and damages, it’s important to understand your legal options to recover financial compensation. If you crashed into a guardrail and it caused even more damage than would’ve happened otherwise, you might want to consider filing a claim against a manufacturer whose product does more harm than good. A Chicago car accident lawyer from Thomas Law Offices will fully investigate your accident to determine who was at fault and then can build your claim from there.
Autonomous, or self-driving, vehicles identify hazards while driving on a more objective level than humans do. When a person is behind the wheel, an accident may be the result of driver error. Ideally, self-driving vehicles eliminate human error. But according to a recently published study by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS), although self-driving cars will be able to better identify hazards that could cause crashes, that still might only prevent around a third of all crashes.
My family's attorney, Ms. Lopez, was professional, compassionate, and really believed in fighting for justice for our family. She was extremely diligent and we were very pleased with the services rendered.

I’m so thankful to have found Lindsay Cordes and the Thomas Law firm. Ms. Cordes is thorough, empathetic, and the best advocate I could’ve hoped for for my Title IX case. She went above and beyond my expectations, and it’s clear she is passionate about her clients.
Wonderful team that helped so much after my auto accident. My case was a little more complicated since it involved my work but they were so helpful in explaining the process and making sure everything was addressed with all parties involved. I would have been lost trying to deal with it on my own.
We initially hired an attorney in FL where we live but since the accident happened in KY, our FL attorney referred us to the Thomas Law Firm and I'm so glad they did. The experience was wonderful, they were very responsive to all our calls and emails and Lindsy has always advised us openly about our options. The case was rather unique and complicated but they were able to get us a great settlement as they fought very hard for us. They even got us additional benefits in addition to the settlement with the insurance company. I highly recommend them and wouldn't look further.
These are by far the utmost professional attorneys. they are very responsive and are willing to help anytime you call them. If you are in need of a law firm that will work hard for you then this is them. A special shout out to Lindsay Cordes and Tad Thomas they are the greatest.
I highly recommend Lindsay Cordes and Thomas Law Offices! The diligent work put forth for my Title IX case was of impeccable quality. This is a law office that cares greatly about its clients and their needs. I am extremely thankful for all that was done for my case. If you are looking for lawyers who give their all in the pursuit of justice, look no further, Thomas Law Offices is the place to go!
The hard work and dedication from Lindsay Cordes, Tad Thomas, and the entire team was able to receive a settlement in my TITLE IX LAWSUIT. (Caps lock for emphasis, trust me, it's needed.)Lindsay and Tad were the fiercest of legal defense as we fought stiff odds, the kindest of spirits as I cried from recounting trauma, the most reliable of sources when I found myself lost in legality, and the most effective of lawyers for winning this case! Title IX is a volatile field and campus rape a traumatic matter. Lindsay, Tad, and Thomas Law Offices navigated this battlefield of an issue with the utmost kindness, tenacity, compassion, reliability, and genuine investment in me not as a client, but as a person. I wouldn't wish anything less for your legal needs!
Tad is AMAZING! He handled two LLC's for my businesses and also did my WILL. He has been our attorney for several years and now has become more like family. He is professional, hardworking, and his team is GREAT!
Thomas Law Office was exceptional in handing my daughters car accident. They went above and beyond working with all the medical bills to get them lowered and with the insurance company to get us the best possible settlement w/o having to file suit. They were quick to always answering emails and phone calls. They even helped with answering questions we had with other issues that didn't involve our current case. They were great to work with. I highly recommend them and their services.
I have used the Thomas law office on several occasions for a myriad of legal matters. Everyone in the office was very professional and seemed genuinely concerned with my well being all of my concerns all the way to the receptionist. I highly recommend working with Tad and his team.
Tad and his team where an absolute blessing in my time of need and I could not have done it without them. Any questions I had where always answered in a timely manner and they worked diligently to get me everything I deserved and that takes time so don't expect anything to happen overnight. Thank you Tad and team! Especially Roxanne, I know you pulled for me a lot!
