Santa Ana Car Accident Attorney

The Law Offices of Tim D. Wright Has Experience Helping Car Accident Victims

Remember that getting assistance from a qualified and experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer can be critical. This is especially true after a severe injury.

If you wait too long in seeking your claims or fail to fully comprehend your damages, crucial evidence may vanish. You can lose valuable compensation that you need to pay for your healing.

We understand that when you have major injuries, you can not thoroughly and instantly evaluate the cause of the accident and also gather information. It is even more difficult to handle the insurance companies.

Let our Santa Ana car accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Tim D. Wright shoulder that burden for you.

What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

  • Call the authorities and make a police report. Do not allow the other motorist talk you into skipping this important step. It can lead to problems in the future.
  • Exchange information with the other motorist. Take good pictures of the other party's I.D. and insurance information. Some police departments will not make this info publicly available on the police report.
  • Note witness information. Independent witness testimony can be crucial to your case.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene and the damages to your car and the other vehicles.
  • Get medical attention. If you have injuries, visit the emergency room or seek medical attention as soon as possible. You might have sustained far more significant injuries than you realized. Additionally, an extensive gap between an accident and also medical treatment can make it hard for your attorney to prove that your injuries are related to the accident.
  • Contact our Santa Ana auto accident attorneys right away. The sooner you have an attorney, the faster they can start defending your legal rights. Also, call an attorney before you speak to any car insurance company. They will usually try to take a statement from you, which can be used against you later.

What Damages Can I Have After an Automobile Accident?

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

What Are the Most Usual Car Accident Injuries?

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

  • Broken bone injury accidents-- When a fracture is more severe, it can require surgery to repair.
  • Back and neck injuries-- These are commonly soft tissue injuries that resolve with therapy. However, sometimes accident victims suffer herniated discs that might need injections or surgery.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)-- Whether mild (like a concussion) or severe, TBIs can require years of treatment. They may also lead to brain death, vegetative states, comas, and also death.
  • Lacerations-- Sometimes accident victims sustain large cuts that require stitches or staples and often leave disfiguring scars.
  • Shoulder injuries, such as a torn rotator cuff or a torn labrum-- These injuries frequently require surgery.
  • Burn injuries-- This can result from fire, yet it can also come from airbags. Our firm has seen significant scarring from airbag injuries.
  • Fatality-- Tragically, thousands of individuals die each year in Santa Ana area auto accidents.

What Elements Affect My Settlement?

Determining how much compensation you should expect from your settlement can be tough because the amount depends greatly on the facts of your case. A seasoned Santa Ana car accident lawyer will calculate your economic as well as non-economic damages. They can also help you make the right decision on when to settle or take your case to court.

Your attorney's job is to negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf until they acquire a top offer from the insurance carrier. If that offer is reasonable, you settle. If not, your attorney can file a lawsuit.

Factors that impact settlement value consist of:

  • The extent of your injuries.
  • The available insurance coverage. If the motorist has little to no insurance, it's much harder to get a high settlement from them. If the driver has no or minimum insurance, the case might need to rely on your own uninsured/underinsured driver coverage for compensation.
  • Whether liability is clear or disputed. For example, the other party might not dispute responsibility in a rear-end accident yet may in a red-light accident.
  • If your accident had more than one responsible party (third-party claims).
  • If the at-fault party showed gross negligence when operating their motor vehicle.
  • Your total medical costs and other losses, such as lost income 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.
