Car Accidents

Have You Been in a Motor Vehicle Accident?

Victims of auto 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 the majority of California vehicle accidents, the injured party, the plaintiff, must establish the negligence of the accused in order to seek damages. Additionally, the plaintiff has to show that the offender's carelessness was the actual and direct source of both the accident as well as the plaintiff's injuries. Call one of our Burbank auto accident attorneys 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 car crashes. 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. Determining fault in an auto accident can be more complex in some cases, however. If you are a car accident victim, it is vital to contact our experienced personal injury attorneys. Our attorneys can help you establish who is at fault for the accident and seek damages where necessary. Burbank motor vehicle accident lawyers at Tim D. Wright handle these issues regularly, so if you've been injured, please give them a call.

Accident Victim FAQs

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 lawsuit is determined by a variety of variables, including the overall cost of your medical bills. Some injuries require continuous medical treatment, which will be factored into your overall damages.

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

Extent of bodily injury is a vital determinant of total damages, both due to resulting medical expenses along with loss of income and quality of life. All of these affect the award amount when receiving compensation.

How does the court determine 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 (Vehicle Defects)
  • Roadway Hazard Accidents

Where dangerous roadway conditions cause a car accident, can the municipality be held responsible?

If dangerous 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 pursue 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 auto accident?

  • Call 911 immediately.
  • Request an ambulance if you're injured.
  • If you're able, take photographs of the property damage and of the other driver's insurance card as well as driver's license.
  • Do not accept payments from or offer any sworn statements to an insurance provider.

Can an accident victim anticipate a fair settlement from the insurance provider if negotiated without a lawyer?

An insurer's objective is to find a reason to deny your claim, or settle a case dispute for the least amount of money possible. Before getting compensation from an insurer, a knowledgeable lawyer with your wellbeing in mind will help you identify appropriate compensation for damages. Pictures of the scene taken immediately after the accident has taken place are an essential element of evidence chronicling the damages and how they might 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 possible cause for action for car accident victims. Your lawyer will require as much evidence as possible to establish accountability for the damages you have sustained. Taking photos of the scene and seeing a physician as soon as possible will help start your healing process, as well as establish the cause of action and build the evidence needed for reimbursement.

What are the damages you can recuperate 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 some of the damages for which a victim may 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 auto 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 recuperate 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 support.

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 speak to a lawyer immediately after sustaining an injury?

Establishing fault in an accident can be complicated, especially if fault lies with more than one party. A skilled lawyer 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. Negotiating the cases with insurers is best done with the professional guidance of attorneys who have been beside you from day one.
