Mendez and Sanchez - Car Accident Law Firm in San Gabriel, California

Have You Been in a Car Accident?

Victims of auto accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim. These claims are generally based on the concept of negligence. In most California automobile accidents, the victim, the plaintiff, has to establish the negligence of the accused in order to seek damages. Additionally, the plaintiff must prove that the offender's negligence was the actual and direct cause of both the accident as well as the plaintiff's injuries. Contact one of our San Gabriel automobile accident attorneys to help lead you through this process.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Infractions of statutory law are often cited to establish the negligent driver in auto accidents. If, for example, a driver failed to stop at a stop sign causing an accident, that statutory infraction could be sufficient to establish fault in that accident. Determining fault in a car accident can be more complicated in some cases, however. If you are an auto accident victim, it's important to contact our experienced personal injury lawyers. Our lawyers can help you identify who is at fault for the accident and pursue damages where necessary. San Gabriel automobile accident attorneys at Mendez & Sanchez deal with these problems often, so if you've been hurt, please give them a call.

Accident Victim Frequently Asked Questions

How does the amount of medical expenses resulting from my car accident injuries affect the value of my case?

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

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

Extent of bodily injury is an essential determinant of total damages, both due to resulting medical bills as well as 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 responsible?

If unsafe driving conditions are the cause of a motor vehicle accident because of neglect by the party responsible to keep the roads safe, your lawyer will collect 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 actions 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 provider's objective 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 determine suitable reimbursement for damages. Photos of the scene taken promptly after the accident has taken place are an essential part of evidence documenting the damages and how they may have been sustained.

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

Property damage or bodily injury that may be a result of the actions of another party provide a possible cause for action for auto accident victims. Your attorney will need as much proof as possible to establish accountability 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 determine the cause of action and build the proof required for reimbursement.

What are the damages you can recoup in a car accident, traumatic brain injury case?

Past and future medical costs, 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 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 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 recover money under the wrongful death act for the loss of love, affection, and support. This includes loss of income as well as other forms of financial security and assistance.

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

Why do I need to get in touch with a lawyer immediately after sustaining an injury?

Determining fault in an accident can be complex, especially if fault lies with more than one party. A skilled attorney will help you document all proof of damages, including pictures of the accident and future medical costs, and evaluate loss of income and changes to quality of life. Discussing the cases with insurers is best done with the experienced assistance of attorneys that have been beside you from day one.
