Mendez and Sanchez - Motor Vehicle Accident in Alhambra, California

Have You Been In a Motor Vehicle Accident?

Victims of motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most prevalent type of personal injury claim. These claims are usually based on the theory of negligence. In most California motor vehicle accidents, the injured party, the plaintiff, must verify the negligence of the defendant in order to pursue damages. Additionally, the plaintiff has to prove that the defendant's carelessness was the actual and direct source of both the accident as well as the plaintiff's injuries. Contact one of our Alhambra motor vehicle 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 motor vehicle accidents. If, for example, a driver failed to stop at a stop sign causing an accident, that statutory violation could be sufficient to establish fault in that accident. Establishing fault in a motor vehicle accident can be more complicated in some cases, however. If you are a motor vehicle accident victim, it is essential to contact our skilled personal injury attorneys. Our lawyers can help you determine who is at fault for the accident and seek damages where appropriate. Alhambra motor vehicle accident lawyers at Mendez & Sanchez handle these issues regularly, so if you've been injured, please give them a call.

Accident Victim FAQs

How does the amount of medical costs resulting from my motor vehicle accident injuries affect the value of my claim?

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

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

Severity of bodily injury is an essential factor of overall damages, both due to resulting medical expenses as well as loss of income and quality of life. All of these impact 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 (motor vehicle Defects)
  • Roadway Hazard Accidents

Where hazardous road conditions cause a motor vehicle accident, can the municipality be held liable?

If unsafe 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 evidence in order to seek reimbursement for damages. This includes both property and personal injury damages caused by negligence. Even if you are partially at fault, 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 motor vehicle 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 and driver's license.
  • Do not accept payments from or provide any sworn statements to an insurance company.
  • Call Mendez & Sanchez for a complimentary consultation on how to manage getting your property fixed.

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

An insurance provider's objective is to find a reason to reject your case, or resolve a claim dispute for the least amount of money possible. Prior to receiving compensation from an insurance company, a knowledgeable lawyer with your wellbeing in mind will help you identify suitable compensation for damages. Pictures of the scene taken promptly after the accident has taken place are a vital part of evidence chronicling the damages and how they may have been sustained.

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

Property damage or bodily injury that may be an outcome of the actions of another party provide a potential cause for action for motor vehicle accident victims. Your attorney will need as much proof as possible to determine liability for the damages you have sustained. Taking pictures of the scene and seeing a physician as soon as possible will help begin your healing process, as well as determine the cause of action and develop the proof needed for compensation.

What are the damages you can recoup in a motor vehicle 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 motor vehicle 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 recuperate money under the wrongful death act for the loss of love, affection, and support. This includes loss of wages and other types of financial security and support.

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

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

Establishing fault in an accident can be complex, particularly if fault lies with more than one party. An experienced attorney 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. Discussing the claims with insurance providers is best done with the experienced guidance of attorneys who have been beside you from day one.
