Motor Vehicle Accident in San Gabriel

Mendez and Sanchez - Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer in San Gabriel

Have You Been in a Motor Vehicle Accident?

Victims of auto accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim. These claims are typically based on the concept of negligence. In the majority of California vehicle accidents, the injured party, the plaintiff, has to establish the negligence of the accused in order to pursue damages. Furthermore, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant's negligence was the actual and direct reason for both the accident and the plaintiff's injuries. Call one of our San Gabriel auto accident attorneys to help direct you through this procedure.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Infractions of statutory law are typically cited to establish the negligent driver in motor vehicle crashes. 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. Establishing fault in an auto 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 attorneys. Our lawyers can help you identify who is at fault for the accident and pursue damages where appropriate. San Gabriel motor vehicle accident lawyers at Mendez & Sanchez deal with these issues regularly, so if you've been injured, please give them a call.

Accident Victim Frequently Asked Questions

How does the amount of medical bills resulting from my motor vehicle accident injuries impact 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 bills. Some injuries need continuous medical treatment, which will be factored into your total damages.

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

Severity of bodily injury is a key component of total damages, both due to resulting medical expenses in addition to loss of income and quality of life. All of these impact the award amount when obtaining compensation.

How does the court determine who the negligent driver was?

Where dangerous road conditions cause a motor vehicle accident, can the municipality be held accountable?

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 attorney will collect all available evidence in order to seek compensation for damages. This includes both property and personal injury damages caused by negligence. Even if you are partially at fault, you may pursue compensation 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?

Can an accident victim anticipate a reasonable settlement from the insurance company if negotiated without an attorney?

An insurer's goal is to find a reason to deny your case, or settle a claim dispute for the least amount of money possible. Prior to getting compensation from an insurance provider, a knowledgeable attorney with your wellbeing in mind will help you determine suitable reimbursement for damages. Pictures of the scene taken promptly after the accident has occurred are a critical element of evidence documenting the damages and how they may 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 may be a result of the actions of another party offer a possible cause for action for motor vehicle accident victims. Your attorney will require as much evidence as possible to determine accountability for the damages you have sustained. Taking photos of the scene and seeing a physician as soon as possible will help begin your recovery process, as well as identify the cause of action and develop the proof required for compensation.

What are the damages you can recuperate 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 before the accident influences the amount of payment.

What damages can a family collect when the motor vehicle 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 wages as well as other types of financial security and support.

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

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

Establishing fault in an accident can be complicated, particularly if fault lies with more than one party. A skilled attorney will help you chronicle all evidence 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 companies is best done with the professional guidance of lawyers that have been beside you from day one.

The lawyers at Mendez & Sanchez are highly experienced in negotiating and litigating personal injury claims. With the help of our attorneys, you are more likely to get a reasonable settlement.
