Los Angeles Car Accident Attorneys

Unfortunately, people all over the world get into car accidents. In California, the third-largest state in the country, car accidents are unsurprisingly commonplace. Sometimes, car accidents occur because one person made a simple mistake, resulting in minor injuries and property damage.

Sometimes, the absolute worst-case scenario takes place. A horrible car accident happens where a driver can receive debilitating injuries as a result. Car accidents like these can lead to long-term and permanent injuries. If you have been recently injured in a car accident, hiring a Los Angeles car accident attorney would be in your best interest. Below, you’ll find all of the information you need to navigate the process of building your car accident claim. 


    Car Accident Injury Claims

    A car accident can happen to anyone – and it likely will at some point in time. You may experience a small fender bender, or someone may run into your car from the back. These are usually not life-threatening scenarios. If you are currently on this page, needless to say, you might have endured a severe car accident that has resulted in your being hospitalized for several days. You may have lost time from your job, acquired substantially expensive medical bills, and endured massive pain and suffering.

    If the car accident wasn’t your fault, why should you be forced to pay for your medical bills? By law, you can hold the other driver accountable for their role in your collision. Filing a car accident injury claim is the first step in receiving compensation to cover these expenses. 
    If you delay filing a claim or forgo the option entirely, it’s on you to fulfill these financial responsibilities. If you suffer later from a condition caused by your injuries, you’ll also be responsible for covering yourself. Ultimately, filing a car accident claim is your best option for protecting yourself. 

     

    What to Consider When Hiring an Attorney

    An excellent way to start filing a car accident claim is to hire a personal injury attorney. Making any ordinary hire might not be beneficial to your case. It is best to actively vet prospective lawyers to evaluate their candidacy and ability to achieve an ideal outcome for you.

    Here are some ways you can find the best personal injury lawyer to represent you in court:

    • Read Online Reviews - Online reviews give potential clients a glimpse of what it’s like working with a particular lawyer. These reviews are accounts of service from previous clients. Looking at a couple of reviews will help you avoid making the wrong choice.
    • Compile and Verify References - References are also trustworthy pieces of valuable information. Make sure to compile at least three references and verify them to ensure you’re dealing with a reliable law firm.
    • Tour their Office - If possible, scout the office of a prospective law firm. Do they have the visible staff and resources to represent you against a multi-billion dollar insurance company?
    • Request a Consultation - During this time, you can receive insight on the merits of your claim, how you can win, and your next steps of action with a legal team.

    California Accident Laws

    The state of California has very complex laws relating to car accident claims. At a basic level, you have to have auto insurance to even be eligible to file a claim. Without auto insurance, you could face stringent penalties for being involved in a wreck without the proper coverage.

    With that said, here are the three laws you should pay close attention to when filing your claim:

    • Statute of Limitations - This is defined as the time limit you have for filing a car accident claim. In California, all accident victims have two years from the date of their crashes to file a claim. For property damage claims, the statute of limitations is three years. Courts do not give any exceptions to this rule.
    • Fault-Based Auto Insurance - California citizens must abide by fault-based auto insurance laws. All drivers must carry bodily injury coverage ($15,000 per user, $30,000 per collision) and property damage liability coverage ($5,000). After a car accident, the injured party will file a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company to receive compensation. Depending on the situation, the injured party can file a direct lawsuit against the at-fault party.
    • Liability Laws - California is a comparative fault state. This phrase means that fault can be assigned to multiple parties. This fact doesn’t negate the compensation a party can receive if they had a lesser percentage of fault, but it can substantially lower it.

    What to Do After a Car Accident

    Car accidents are devastating outcomes for everyone involved. It may be confusing to know what to do outright after your crash. Here are the steps you should take in the aftermath of a car accident. Here are some ways you can find the best personal injury lawyer to represent you in court:

    • Call 911 - Don’t assume that 911 has already been called. Make the call for yourself to request emergency help.
    • Gather Evidence - If it's safe to do so, take pictures of the accident scene so that you can record an accurate depiction of the scene
    • Request Contact Information - exchange information with the other driver, such as their full name, insurance information, home address, phone numbers, and even their place of work.
    • Seek Medical Treatment - Follow the steps of medical care assigned to you by your doctor.
    • Talk to your Insurance Provider - Let your insurance company know that you have been involved in an auto accident.
    • Call a Lawyer - Filing a car accident claim is much more effective when you have an experienced lawyer on your side that can negotiate the terms of your settlement in your favor.

    Common Car Accident Injuries

    Los Angeles is, unfortunately, a hotbed for severe and fatal car accidents. The worst part about this is that you may not be aware of the severity of your injuries until a few days or weeks after the crash. Suddenly, you may lack the motor skills to perform basic activities and return to your livelihood.

    Below is a list of injuries that are all possibilities following a severe car accident:

    • Traumatic brain injuries
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Back and neck injuries
    • Permanent disabilities
    • Scarring and disfigurement
    • Bone fractures
    • Major lacerations
    • Soft-tissue injuries
    • Burns
    • Wrongful Death

    In particular, traumatic brain injuries can be severe. Some victims can appear asymptomatic and continue with their lives. In the future, they can exhibit mental issues that can adversely affect their health. In addition to seeking medical treatment to diagnose any significant injuries, you should call a personal injury attorney to file a personal injury claim. This way, you can receive peace of mind when dealing with medical and rehabilitation expenses.

    Compensation for Car Accident Victims

    Although California is a comparative fault state, this can work to your advantage. Even if you were 99% responsible for your accident, you could still receive 1% of the compensation award. That’s not to say that it will happen, but it gives you the idea of knowing how much money you could receive if you were not entirely at fault for your accident. A reliable personal injury attorney will compile evidence that proves that the at-fault party’s negligent actions caused your medical expenses, serious (long-term or permanent) injuries, and pain and suffering. Don’t wait to consider filing a claim. It’s in your best interest to get started right away.

    Beware of Insurance Companies

    You should always avoid speaking to the at-fault party’s insurance company. Their adjusters and attorneys work to save as much money as possible for their company. To do so, they could attempt to undervalue your claim. They will not actively acknowledge your injuries if they offer an initial settlement. It will usually be much lower than what you can receive in court or future negotiations. Sometimes, people who have mounting medical bills will look favorably on a settlement offer that's on-the-table but much less than the compensation they truly deserve.

    Some people will forgo hiring a lawyer and instead try and handle this issue on their own. The problem is that insurance companies are armed with a wealth of lawyers. Their adjusters will attempt to make you say things that can incriminate yourself and hurt your claim. Remember - all phone conversations with insurance companies are recorded. Hiring a lawyer will help you tip the scales in your favor.

    This way, you won’t be taken advantage of by an insurance company. A Los Angeles accident lawyer will know the typical tricks insurance companies employ and will be prepared to present your most robust case. With a strong case, they’ll be forced to negotiate a settlement that is fair and will cover your losses due to an accident.
