Mendez and Sanchez - Car Accident Law Firm in Montebello, California

Have You Been in a Car Accident?

Victims of automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most prevalent kind of personal injury claim. These claims are generally based on the concept of negligence. In the majority of California automobile accidents, the victim, the plaintiff, has to establish the negligence of the accused in order to pursue damages. Additionally, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant's carelessness was the actual and proximate cause of both the accident and the plaintiff's injuries. Call one of our Montebello car accident lawyers to help lead you through this procedure.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Violations of statutory law are often cited to establish the negligent driver in auto accidents. If, for instance, a driver failed to stop at a stop sign resulting in an accident, that statutory violation could be enough to determine fault in that accident. Determining fault in an auto accident can be more complicated in some cases, however. If you are a car accident victim, it is essential to contact our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers. Our attorneys can help you establish who is at fault for the accident and pursue damages where necessary. Montebello auto accident attorneys at Mendez & Sanchez deal with these issues 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 automobile accident injuries influence the value of my case?

The value of an accident victim's claim 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 measure damages in a motor vehicle accident for a traumatic brain injury?

Extent of bodily injury is a vital component of overall damages, both due to resulting medical bills along with loss of income and quality of life. All of these affect the award amount when receiving compensation.

Where hazardous road conditions trigger a car accident, can the municipality be held liable?

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

What actions should I take at the scene of my car accident?

  • Call 911 right away
  • Ask for 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 offer any sworn statements to an insurer
  • Call Mendez & Sanchez for a complimentary assessment on how to handle getting your property fixed

Can an accident victim anticipate a reasonable settlement from the insurance provider if negotiated without a lawyer?

An insurance company's goal is to find a reason to reject your case, or resolve a case dispute for the least amount of money possible. Prior to getting compensation from an insurance company, an experienced attorney with your wellbeing in mind will help you determine suitable compensation for damages. Pictures of the scene taken promptly after the accident has taken place are a critical component of evidence chronicling the damages and how they might have been sustained.

If I get involved in an auto accident, how do I know if there is a cause of action against the other party?

Property damages or bodily injury that might be a result of the actions of another party provide a potential cause for action for motor vehicle accident victims. Your lawyer will need as much evidence as possible to determine responsibility for the damages you have sustained. Taking pictures of the scene and visiting a medical professional as soon as possible will help start your recovery process, as well as identify the cause of action and develop the evidence required for reimbursement.

What are the damages you can recover 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 pursue compensation. The state of health and financial position of the victim before the accident affects the amount of compensation.

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

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

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

Why do I need to speak to a lawyer immediately after sustaining an injury?

Establishing fault in an accident can be complex, particularly if fault lies with more than one party. A skilled lawyer will help you chronicle all proof of damages, including pictures of the accident and future medical costs, and assess loss of income and changes to quality of life. Negotiating the claims with insurance providers is best done with the experienced assistance of lawyers that have been beside you from day one.
