Mendez & Sanchez - Car Accident Attorneys in Alhambra, California

Have You Been in a Motor Vehicle Accident?

Victims of car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most prevalent type of personal injury claim. These claims are typically based on the concept of negligence. In most California vehicle accidents, the victim, the plaintiff, needs to verify the negligence of the accused in order to pursue damages. Furthermore, the plaintiff needs to show that the offender's negligence was the true and direct cause of both the accident and the plaintiff's injuries. Contact one of our Alhambra auto accident attorneys to help guide you through this process.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Violations of statutory law are often cited to establish the negligent driver in auto crashes. If, for instance, a driver failed to stop at a stop sign resulting in an accident, that statutory violation could be enough to establish fault in that accident. Establishing fault in a motor vehicle accident can be more complex in some cases, however. If you are an automobile accident victim, it is essential to contact our skilled personal injury lawyers. Our attorneys can help you determine who is at fault for the accident and seek damages where necessary. Alhambra car accident lawyers at Mendez & Sanchez handle these problems regularly, so if you've been hurt, please give them a call.

Accident Victim FAQs

How does the amount of medical costs arising from my motor vehicle accident injuries influence the value of my case?

The value of an accident victim's case is determined by a number of variables, including the total cost of your medical expenses. Some injuries need continuous medical treatment, which will be factored into your total damages.

How does the court determine damages in an auto accident for a traumatic brain injury?

Extent of bodily injury is an essential factor of overall damages, both due to resulting medical costs as well as loss of income and quality of life. All of these influence the award amount when obtaining compensation.

How does the court identify who the negligent driver was?

  • High Velocity Accidents (Speeding)
  • Reckless Driving Accidents (Aggressive Driving)
  • Distracted Driving Accidents (i.e. Cell Phone Accidents)
  • Alcohol Related Accidents
  • Product Liability Accidents (Automobile Defects)
  • Roadway Hazard Accidents

Where hazardous roadway conditions cause an auto accident, can the municipality be held responsible?

If hazardous driving conditions are the cause of a motor vehicle accident due to neglect by the party responsible to keep the roads safe, your lawyer will gather all available proof in order to seek reimbursement for damages. This includes both property and personal injury damages caused by negligence. Even if you are partially responsible, you may seek reimbursement for the portion of damages caused by the other party, including a municipality.

What steps should I take at the scene of my automobile accident?

  • Call 911 right away.
  • Request an ambulance if you're injured.
  • If you're able, take photographs of the property damage and of the other driver's insurance card as well as driver's license.
  • Do not accept payments from or provide any sworn statements to an insurance company.
  • Call Mendez & Sanchez for a free assessment on how to manage getting your property repaired.

Can an accident victim expect a reasonable settlement from the insurance provider if negotiated without an attorney?

An insurer's goal is to find a reason to reject your case, or resolve a case dispute for the least amount of money possible. Before getting compensation from an insurance company, an experienced lawyer with your wellbeing in mind will help you identify appropriate compensation for damages. Photos of the scene taken immediately after the accident has occurred are a crucial element of evidence chronicling the damages and how they may have been sustained.

If I get into an automobile crash, how do I know if there is a cause of action against the other party?

Property damage or bodily injury that might be an outcome of the actions of another party present a possible cause for action for motor vehicle accident victims. Your lawyer will need as much proof as possible to establish liability for the damages you have sustained. Taking photos of the scene and seeing a medical professional as soon as possible will help start your healing process, as well as determine the cause of action and build the proof required for reimbursement.

What are the damages you can recuperate in an automobile accident, traumatic brain injury case?

Past and future medical expenses, past and future wage loss, pain and suffering, and loss of a normal life are some of the damages for which a victim might seek compensation. The state of health and financial position of the victim prior to the accident affects the amount of compensation.

What damages can a family collect when the car accident victim is a loved one?

There are two causes of actions that can be pursued on behalf of a deceased loved one: wrongful death and survival. The family can recoup money under the wrongful death act for the loss of love, affection, and support. This includes loss of wages and other forms of financial security and support.

Your loved one's estate can seek a survival cause of action, and recover damages the victim suffered between the time of injury and the time of their passing.

Why do I need to speak to an attorney immediately after suffering an injury?

Establishing fault in an accident can be complicated, especially if fault lies with more than one party. A knowledgeable attorney will help you document all proof of damages, including photos of the accident and future medical costs, and assess loss of income and changes to quality of life. Negotiating the cases with insurance companies is best done with the professional guidance of lawyers that have been beside you from day one.
