Have You Been in a Car Accident?
Victims of motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most common kind of personal injury claim. These claims are typically based on the concept of negligence. In the majority of California automobile accidents, the victim, the plaintiff, needs to establish the negligence of the accused in order to seek damages. Furthermore, the plaintiff must prove that the offender's negligence was the true and proximate reason for both the accident and the plaintiff's injuries. Call one of our Glendale car accident lawyers to help guide 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 instance, a driver failed to stop at a stop sign resulting in an accident, that statutory violation could be sufficient to establish fault in that accident.

Our attorneys can help you identify who is at fault for the accident and seek damages where necessary. Glendale motor vehicle accident lawyers at Tim D.

Accident Victim FAQs
How does the amount of medical bills resulting from my motor vehicle accident injuries affect the value of my lawsuit?
The value of an accident victim's lawsuit is determined by a variety of variables, including the complete cost of your medical expenses. Some injuries need continuous medical treatment, which will be factored into your overall damages.
How does the court measure damages in an automobile accident for a traumatic brain injury?
Extent of bodily injury is an essential determinant of overall damages, both due to resulting medical costs along with loss of income and quality of life. All of these influence the award amount when obtaining compensation.
Where hazardous roadway conditions cause a car accident, can the municipality be held responsible?
If unsafe driving conditions are the source of an auto accident due to neglect by the party responsible to keep the roads safe, your attorney will gather all available proof 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 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 auto accident?
Can an accident victim anticipate a reasonable settlement from the insurance company if negotiated without a lawyer?
An insurance company's objective is to find a reason to deny your case, or settle a case dispute for the least amount of money possible. Prior to getting compensation from an insurer, a knowledgeable lawyer with your wellbeing in mind will help you identify suitable reimbursement for damages. Photos of the scene taken immediately after the accident has occurred are a crucial component of evidence chronicling the damages and how they may have been sustained.
If I get into 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 an outcome of the actions of another party present a potential cause for action for car accident victims. Your attorney will require as much evidence as possible to establish liability for the damages you have sustained. Taking photos of the scene and visiting a physician as soon as possible will help begin your recovery process, as well as identify the cause of action and build the proof needed for compensation.
What are the damages you can recoup 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 a few of the damages for which a victim might pursue compensation. The state of health and financial position of the victim prior to the accident influences 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 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 wages and other forms of financial security and assistance.
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 death.
Why do I need to speak to an attorney immediately after suffering an injury?
Determining fault in an accident can be complicated, especially if fault lies with more than one party. A skilled lawyer will help you document all evidence of damages, including pictures of the accident and future medical costs, and evaluate loss of income and changes to quality of life. Discussing the claims with insurance companies is best done with the experienced guidance of lawyers that have been beside you from day one.
