Have You Been in a Car Accident?
Victims of automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most common kind of personal injury claim. These claims are typically based on the theory of negligence. In the majority of California vehicle accidents, the victim, the plaintiff, must establish the negligence of the defendant in order to pursue damages. Furthermore, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant's carelessness was the actual and direct reason for both the accident as well as the plaintiff's injuries. Call one of our North Hollywood car accident lawyers to help guide you through this procedure.
You May Be Entitled to Compensation

If, for example, a driver failed to stop at a stop sign resulting in an accident, that statutory infraction could be sufficient to determine fault in that accident.

Accident Victim FAQs
How does the amount of medical expenses resulting from my auto 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 overall cost of your medical expenses. Some injuries require continuous medical treatment, which will be factored into your overall damages.
How does the court gauge damages in a car accident for a traumatic brain injury?
Severity of bodily injury is a vital factor of total damages, both due to resulting medical expenses in addition to loss of income and quality of life. All of these influence the award amount when obtaining compensation.
How does the court determine who the negligent driver was?
Where hazardous road conditions cause an automobile accident, can the municipality be held accountable?
If dangerous driving conditions are the source of an automobile accident due to neglect by the party responsible to keep the roads safe, your lawyer will gather all available evidence in order to pursue reimbursement for damages. This includes both property and personal injury damages caused by negligence. Even if you are partially responsible, you may seek reimbursement for the portion of damages caused by the other party, including a municipality.
What actions should I take at the scene of my auto accident?
Can an accident victim expect a fair settlement from the insurance provider if negotiated without an attorney?
An insurer's objective is to find a reason to reject your claim, or resolve a case dispute for the least amount of money possible. Before obtaining compensation from an insurance provider, a skilled lawyer with your wellbeing in mind will help you determine appropriate compensation for damages. Photos of the scene taken promptly after the accident has taken place are a vital element of evidence documenting the damages and how they might 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 might be an outcome of the actions of another party present a potential cause for action for auto accident victims. Your attorney will require as much evidence as possible to determine accountability for the damages you have sustained. Taking pictures of the scene and seeing a medical professional as soon as possible will help start your recovery process, as well as establish the cause of action and build the proof needed for compensation.
What are the damages you can recover 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 may seek 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 sought 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 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 lawyer will help you chronicle all evidence of damages, including pictures of the accident and future medical bills, and evaluate loss of income and changes to quality of life. Negotiating the cases with insurance companies is best done with the professional guidance of attorneys that have been beside you from day one.
