Riverside Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer

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

Keep in mind that obtaining assistance from a qualified and experienced car accident lawyer might be vital. This is particularly true after a severe injury.

If you delay too long in seeking your claims or fail to fully understand your damages, vital evidence may disappear. You can lose valuable compensation that you need to pay for your healing. We know that when you have major injuries, you can not thoroughly and immediately analyze the source of the accident and collect information. It is even more difficult to handle the insurance carriers. Allow our Riverside car accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Tim D. Wright shoulder that burden for you.

What Should I Do After an Automobile Accident?

  • Call the authorities and make a police report. Do not allow the other motorist talk you into skipping this critical step. It can cause problems later.
  • 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 vital to your claim.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene and also the damages to your vehicle and the other cars.
  • Get medical care. If you have injuries, visit the emergency room or get medical attention right away. You might have sustained far more serious injuries than you realized. Further, a long gap between an accident as well as medical treatment can make it difficult for your attorney to prove that your injuries are related to the accident.
  • Contact our Riverside auto accident lawyers right away. The sooner you have an attorney, the faster they can begin defending your legal rights. Also, call an attorney before you talk to any car insurance company. They will often try to take a statement from you, which can be used against you later on.

What Damages Can I Have After a Motor Vehicle Accident?

  • Medical expenses, like hospital visits, doctor appointments, physical therapy, ambulance fees, and so on.
  • Pain and suffering refers to the physical and psychological anguish for which a person can pursue compensation in a claim.
  • Lost income from missing work after a major injury, one of the most financially damaging aspects of a car accident.

What Are the Most Usual Motor Vehicle 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 severe, it can need surgery to repair.
  • Back and neck injuries-- These are often soft tissue injuries that resolve with therapy. However, in some cases accident victims suffer herniated discs that may require injections or surgery.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)-- Whether mild (like a concussion) or severe, TBIs can require years of treatment. They may also cause brain death, vegetative states, comas, and even 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-- Unfortunately, hundreds of people die every year in Riverside area auto accidents.

What Elements Impact My Settlement?

Calculating how much compensation you should expect from your settlement can be difficult because the amount depends greatly on the facts of your case. An experienced Riverside car accident attorney will calculate your economic as well as non-economic damages. They can also help you make the best 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 get a top offer from the insurance carrier. If that offer is reasonable, you settle. Otherwise, your lawyer can file a lawsuit.

Aspects that affect settlement value include:

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