Car Accident Lawyer in San Fernando Valley

Have You Been In a Car Accident?

Victims of motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most frequent type of personal injury claim. These claims are usually based on the concept of negligence. In most California vehicle accidents, the injured party, the plaintiff, has to establish the negligence of the defendant in order to seek damages. Furthermore, the plaintiff has to show that the defendant's carelessness was the actual and proximate cause of both the accident and the plaintiff's injuries. Call one of our San Fernando auto accident attorneys to help direct you through this procedure.

You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Infractions of statutory law are typically cited to establish the negligent driver in auto crashes. If, for example, a driver failed to stop at a stop sign causing an accident, that statutory infraction could be enough to establish fault in that accident. Establishing fault in a car accident can be more complicated in some cases, however. If you are an automobile accident victim, it's important to contact our skilled personal injury attorneys. Our attorneys can help you identify who is at fault for the accident and pursue damages where appropriate. San Fernando car accident lawyers at Tim D. Wright handle these problems regularly, so if you've been injured, please give them a phone call.

How does the amount of medical bills resulting from my automobile accident injuries impact the value of my lawsuit?

The value of an accident victim's claim is determined by a number of variables, including the complete cost of your medical expenses. Some injuries require continuous medical treatment, which will be factored into your overall damages.

How does the court gauge damages in an auto accident for a traumatic brain injury?

Extent of bodily injury is an essential component of overall damages, both due to resulting medical expenses along with loss of income and quality of life. All of these affect the award amount when acquiring compensation.

How does the court establish who the negligent driver was?

  • High Velocity Accidents (Speeding)
  • Reckless Driving Accidents (Aggressive Driving)
  • Distracted Driving Accidents (i.e. Cell Phone Accidents)
  • Alcohol Related Accidents
  • Product Liability Accidents (Automobile Defects)
  • Roadway Hazard Accidents

Where hazardous road conditions trigger a car accident, can the municipality be held liable?

If hazardous driving conditions are the cause of a car accident because of neglect by the party responsible to keep the roads safe, your attorney will collect all available evidence 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 might pursue reimbursement for the portion of damages caused by the other party, including a municipality.

What actions should I take at the scene of my auto accident?

  • Call 911 immediately.
  • Request an ambulance if you're injured.
  • If you're able, take photos of the property damage and of the other driver's insurance card as well as driver's license.
  • Do not accept payments from or provide any kind of sworn statements to an insurer.
  • Call Tim D. Wright for a complimentary consultation on how to handle getting your property repaired.

Can an accident victim anticipate a fair settlement from the insurer if negotiated without an attorney?

An insurance company's goal is to find a reason to reject your claim, or resolve a claim dispute for the least amount of money possible. Before getting compensation from an insurance company, a knowledgeable attorney with your wellbeing in mind will help you determine appropriate compensation for damages. Pictures of the scene taken promptly after the accident has taken place are a critical element of evidence chronicling the damages and how they may have been sustained.

If I get involved in an auto crash, 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 present a potential cause for action for auto accident victims. Your lawyer will require as much proof as possible to determine liability for the damages you have sustained. Taking pictures of the scene and visiting a doctor as soon as possible will help begin your recovery process, as well as establish the cause of action and build the evidence needed for reimbursement.

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 might 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 motor vehicle accident victim is a loved one?

There are two causes of actions that can be sought 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 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 contact a lawyer immediately after suffering an injury?

Determining fault in an accident can be complex, particularly if fault lies with more than one party. An experienced attorney will help you document all proof of damages, including photos of the accident and future medical costs, and assess loss of income and changes to quality of life. Negotiating the cases with insurance providers is best done with the professional assistance of attorneys that have been beside you from the beginning.
