Fresno Car Accident Attorney

Tim D. Wright Has Experience Serving Motor Vehicle Accident Victims

Remember that acquiring help from a qualified and seasoned motor vehicle accident lawyer may be critical. This is particularly true after a severe injury. If you wait too long in seeking your claims or fail to fully understand your damages, important evidence may vanish. You can lose valuable compensation that you need to pay for your recovery. We understand that when you have serious injuries, you can not carefully and immediately analyze the cause of the accident and also collect information. It is even harder to handle the insurance providers.

Let our Fresno motor vehicle accident lawyers at Tim D. Wright shoulder that burden for you.

What Should I Do After a Motor Vehicle Accident?

  • Call the authorities and make a police report. Do not allow the other motorist to talk you into skipping this important step. It can result in problems in the future.
  • Exchange information with the other driver. Take good photos of the other party's I.D. and insurance info. Some police departments will not make this information publicly available on the police report.
  • Note witness information. Independent witness testimony can be critical to your case.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene and also the damage to your car and the other vehicles.
  • Get medical attention. If you have injuries, go to the emergency room or seek medical care immediately. You might have suffered far more significant injuries than you realized. Further, an extensive gap between an accident and medical care can make it challenging for your attorney to prove that your injuries are related to the accident.
  • Call our Fresno car accident lawyers right away. The sooner you have an attorney, the faster they can begin protecting your legal rights. Also, call a lawyer before you talk to any auto insurance carrier. They will usually try to take a statement from you, which can be used against you later on.

What Damages Can I Have After an Automobile Accident?

  • Medical costs, like hospital visits, doctor appointments, physical therapy, ambulance costs, etc.
  • Pain and suffering refers to the physical and mental distress for which a person can seek compensation in a claim.
  • Lost income from missing work after a major injury, one of the most financially harmful aspects of an automobile accident.

What Are the Most Common Car Accident Injuries?

There are a number of injuries that can result from auto accidents, such as:

  • Broken bone injury accidents-- When a fracture is more serious, it can need surgery to fix.
  • Back and neck injuries-- These are often soft tissue injuries that resolve with therapy. However, in some cases accident victims suffer herniated discs that might require injections or surgery.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)-- Whether minor (like a concussion) or extreme, TBIs can require years of medical care. They might also result in brain death, vegetative states, comas, and also death.
  • Lacerations-- Sometimes accident victims sustain large cuts that need stitches or staples and often leave disfiguring scars.
  • Shoulder injuries, such as a torn rotator cuff or a torn labrum-- These injuries often require surgery.
  • Burn injuries-- This can result from fire, yet it can also come from airbags. Our office has seen significant scarring from airbag injuries.
  • Death-- Unfortunately, hundreds of people die each year in Fresno area car accidents.

What Elements Affect My Settlement?

Determining just how much compensation you should expect from your settlement can be challenging since the amount depends greatly on the facts of your case. An experienced Fresno automobile accident lawyer will determine your economic and non-economic damages. They can also help you make the right decision on when to settle or take your case to court.

Your lawyer's job is to negotiate with the insurance providers on your behalf until they obtain a top offer from the insurance company. If that offer is fair, you settle. If not, your attorney can file a lawsuit.

Factors that impact settlement value include:

  • The extent of your injuries.
  • The available insurance coverage. If the driver has little to no insurance, it's much harder to acquire a high settlement from them. If the motorist has no or minimal insurance, the claim may need to rely on your own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage for compensation.
  • Whether liability is clear or contested. For instance, the other celebration may not challenge liability in a rear-end accident but might in a red-light accident.
  • If your accident had more than one liable party (third-party claims).
  • If the at-fault party acted with gross negligence when operating their motor vehicle.
  • Your total medical costs and other losses, such as lost wages from work.
  • Your ability to go back to work.
  • The change in your quality of life prior to and after your accident.
  • Your out-of-pocket expenses.
