Have You Been In a Car Accident?
Victims of motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most prevalent type of personal injury claim. These claims are generally based on the concept of negligence. In most California vehicle accidents, the injured party, the plaintiff, needs to establish the negligence of the accused in order to pursue damages. Furthermore, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant's negligence was the true and direct cause of both the accident as well as the plaintiff's injuries. Call one of our Pasadena auto accident lawyers to help direct you through this process.
You May Be Entitled to Compensation
Violations of statutory law are often cited to establish the negligent driver in motor vehicle crashes. If, for instance, a driver failed to stop at a stop sign causing an accident, that statutory violation could be sufficient to establish fault in that accident.

Our attorneys can help you determine who is at fault for the accident and pursue damages where necessary. Pasadena automobile accident attorneys at Tim D. Wright deal with these problems on a regular basis, so if you've been injured, please give them a call.
Accident Victim Frequently Asked Questions
How does the amount of medical expenses arising from my automobile accident injuries affect the value of my claim?
The value of an accident victim's claim is determined by a variety of variables, including the complete cost of your medical expenses. Some injuries need continuous medical treatment, which will be factored into your overall damages.
How does the court determine damages in an automobile accident for a traumatic brain injury?
Extent of bodily injury is a key factor of overall damages, both due to resulting medical costs as well as loss of income and quality of life. All of these impact the award amount when acquiring compensation.
How does the court establish who the negligent driver was?
Where hazardous road conditions trigger a motor vehicle accident, can the municipality be held responsible?
If dangerous driving conditions are the source of an auto accident due to neglect by the party responsible to keep the roads safe, your attorney will collect all available proof in order to seek compensation for damages. This includes both property and personal injury damages caused by negligence. Even if you are partially at fault, you may seek compensation 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 expect a reasonable settlement from the insurance provider if negotiated without an attorney?
An insurance provider's goal 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 attorney with your wellbeing in mind will help you identify suitable reimbursement for damages. Photos of the scene taken promptly after the accident has occurred are a critical component of evidence documenting the damages and how they might have been sustained.
If I get into an automobile crash, how do I know if there is a cause of action against the other party?
Property damage or bodily injury that might be a result of the actions of another party present a potential cause for action for automobile accident victims. Your lawyer will require as much proof as possible to determine responsibility 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 determine the cause of action and develop the evidence needed for compensation.
What are the damages you can recover in an automobile 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 seek compensation. The state of health and financial position of the victim before the accident affects 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 income as well as other forms of financial security and assistance.
Your loved one's estate can seek 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 knowledgeable lawyer will help you chronicle all proof of damages, including photos of the accident and future medical bills, and evaluate loss of income and changes to quality of life. Discussing the claims with insurance providers is best done with the experienced guidance of attorneys who have been beside you from the beginning.
