Car Accident Statistics
Car accidents are one of the leading factors of injury deaths in California. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 3,304 recorded fatal car accidents in California in 2017.
These accidents are caused by various reasons, such as distracted driving, drunk driving, and driver over-fatigue.
Your damages are the losses that the negligent driver caused. There are many different losses you might suffer as a result of a car accident. Some of these (like auto repair bills) are easy to value. Others (like pain and suffering) are more difficult. Insurance companies are notorious for trying to devalue the losses that are hard to value.
If you’ve suffered injuries in a car crash, you need legal advice from experienced California accident lawyers. The other driver’s insurance company is not on your side. Their job is to pay you as little as possible.
Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorney for Victims of Two-Vehicle Collisions
While waiting for the official investigation results, the victim is encouraged to pursue a personal injury claim with his attorney’s help. The victims are entitled to seek financial compensation for the medical expenses, lost earnings, emotional trauma, and pain and suffering that the accident has caused them through the personal injury claim.
Your personal injury claim starts by opening a claim with the other driver’s insurance company. If you choose to do this before hiring an attorney, be careful: the insurance company will likely ask you to make a recorded statement about how the accident occurred. This can be used against you later.
