Have You Been in a Car Accident?

Victims of auto accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most common kind of personal injury claim. These claims are generally based on the theory of negligence. In the majority of California automobile accidents, the victim, the plaintiff, needs to verify the negligence of the defendant in order to pursue damages.

Accident Victim Frequently Asked Questions

How does the amount of medical bills arising from my car accident injuries affect the value of my lawsuit?

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

How does the court gauge damages in a car accident for a traumatic brain injury?

Severity of bodily injury is an essential component of overall damages, both due to resulting medical expenses along with loss of income and quality of life. All of these impact the award amount when obtaining compensation.

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

If unsafe driving conditions are the cause of a car accident due to neglect by the party responsible to keep the roads safe, your attorney will gather all available evidence 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 might pursue reimbursement for the portion of damages caused by the other party, including a municipality.

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

Can an accident victim expect a reasonable settlement from the insurer if negotiated without a lawyer?

An insurance company's objective is to find a reason to reject your claim, or settle a claim dispute for the least amount of money possible. Before obtaining compensation from an insurance company, a skilled lawyer with your wellbeing in mind will help you determine appropriate reimbursement for damages. Pictures of the scene taken immediately after the accident has occurred are a vital element of evidence chronicling the damages and how they may have been sustained.

If I get into a car 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 possible cause for action for car accident victims. Your lawyer will require as much proof as possible to establish responsibility for the damages you have sustained. Taking photos of the scene and visiting a medical professional as soon as possible will help begin your recovery process, as well as establish the cause of action and build the proof required for compensation.

What are the damages you can recoup in a car 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 a few of the damages for which a victim might seek compensation. The state of health and financial position of the victim prior to the accident influences the amount of payment.

What damages can a family receive 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 income and other types of financial security and assistance.

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

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

Determining fault in an accident can be complicated, particularly if fault lies with more than one party. A knowledgeable attorney will help you document all proof of damages, including pictures of the accident and future medical expenses, and evaluate loss of income and changes to quality of life. Discussing the claims with insurance providers is best done with the professional guidance of attorneys who have been beside you from the beginning.
