Have You Been In a Car Accident?
Victims of car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most frequent type of personal injury claim. These claims are typically based on the theory of negligence. In most California car accidents, the injured party, the plaintiff, needs to verify the negligence of the accused in order to seek damages. Additionally, the plaintiff has to prove that the offender's carelessness was the true and proximate source of both the accident as well as the plaintiff's injuries. Call one of our San Gabriel car accident lawyers to help direct you through this procedure.
You May Be Entitled to Compensation
Infractions of statutory law are usually cited to establish the negligent driver in car crashes. If, for example, a driver failed to stop at a stop sign causing an accident, that statutory violation could be sufficient to determine fault in that accident. Determining fault in a car accident can be more complicated in some cases, however. If you are a car accident victim, it is essential to contact our experienced personal injury attorneys. Our attorneys can help you identify who is at fault for the accident and seek damages where necessary. San Gabriel car accident attorneys at Tim D. Wright deal with these issues on a regular basis, so if you've been hurt, please give them a phone call.
Accident Victim Frequently Asked Questions
How does the amount of medical expenses resulting from my car accident injuries affect the value of my claim?
The value of an accident victim's case is determined by a number of variables, including the complete cost of your medical expenses. Some injuries need ongoing 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 key component of total damages, both due to resulting medical bills as well as loss of income and quality of life. All of these affect the award amount when acquiring compensation.
How does the court determine who the negligent driver was?
Where hazardous roadway conditions trigger a car accident, can the municipality be held liable?
If unsafe driving conditions are the source of an car accident because of neglect by the party responsible to keep the roads safe, your lawyer will gather all available proof 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 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 car accident?
Can an accident victim anticipate a reasonable settlement from the insurer if negotiated without an attorney?
An insurer's objective is to find a reason to deny your case, or settle a case dispute for the least amount of money possible. Before receiving 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 occurred are a crucial part of evidence documenting the damages and how they may have been sustained.
If I get involved in a car accident, how do I know if there is a cause of action against the other party?
Property damage or bodily injury that may be a result of the actions of another party offer a potential cause for action for car accident victims. Your lawyer will need as much proof as possible to establish liability for the damages you have sustained. Taking pictures of the scene and visiting a medical professional as soon as possible will help begin your healing process, as well as establish the cause of action and build the evidence needed for compensation.
What are the damages you can recover in a car 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 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 receive when the car 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 types of financial security and assistance.
Your loved one's estate can seek a survival cause of action, and recoup damages the victim suffered between the time of injury and the time of their passing.
Why do I need to speak to a lawyer immediately after suffering an injury?
Establishing fault in an accident can be complex, especially if fault lies with more than one party. An experienced attorney will help you chronicle all evidence of damages, including pictures of the accident and future medical expenses, 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 the beginning.
