How Can Our Santa Clarita Accident Lawyers Help Protect Your Case?

Our accident lawyers in Santa Clarita have assisted thousands of victims and won over $500 Million in compensation claims. Our dedicated attorneys will be by your side from the start. We will answer every inquiry from the at-fault party’s insurance company and legal team to keep you from disclosing any sensitive information that could weaken your case or, worse, place you at fault.

In our decades of practice in personal injury law, we have seen accident victims who opted to fight their battles on their own. Unfortunately, most of them have received minimal compensation. Many totally lost their cases simply because they were not aware of their rights or the real value of their claim.

We know insurance firms very well and how manipulative they are with victims. They will pay attention to every word you say and use it against you to benefit their interests. Also, they will make a seemingly attractive offer, but you can expect that this is certainly a lowball.

Rest assured, our Santa Clarita accident lawyers will protect you from intimidation and undervalued offers. Your claim is typically way more valuable than initial offers, and we will help you get a fair payout.

Why Should You Trust Our Santa Clarita Attorneys To Get The Best Compensation?

As a client-centric law firm, we prioritize your recovery and overall well-being. Our accident attorneys in Santa Clarita will not only shield you from the other party’s gaslighting tactics, but we will also ensure you secure optimal compensation through these acts of service:
  • Gathering all the evidence, such as police reports, medical assessments, CCTV footage, incident photos, medical bills, expert opinions, and physical evidence
  • Coordinating with eyewitnesses
  • Filing your insurance claim
  • Filing legal court documents, if needed
  • Attending court hearings, if necessary

We have represented clients in court against big corporations. One of which is Walmart, where an elderly couple, represented by Brian Beecher, Esq., secured nearly $50 Million after the retail chain giant failed to protect our clients from an assailant.

Additionally, our Santa Clarita accident lawyers will work with you on a contingency fee basis. This means you will not pay us anything if we don’t win your case. Instead, our payment comes from the compensation you will receive. During your onboarding process, we will also talk about the percentage we will take to ensure both sides are in agreement.

We let our clients and proven track record speak volumes about our work ethics. Our client testimonials are available for you to read should you consider working with us.

I had an excellent experience with Arash Law. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends. I interviewed a few firms before deciding to work with Arash Law. What made my experience excellent was (i.e. head attorney being accessible to talk to and he answered all my questions and concerns, sensitive and thorough personel who completed in home intake & follow up process, being connected immediately to quality Physicians who addressed my injuries and recovery process, clear contract-read throughly to ensure its something you can commit to). Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience and I had a sense of peace knowing Arash Firm was walking with me throughout the whole process. Thank you Arash Firm for all your hard work and help. I am so grateful and appreciative for you all! 🙏 With Gratitude, Monica Parra

What Types Of Cases Do Our Accident Attorneys Handle?

Helping accident victims is our calling. With decades of experience and thousands of clients we’ve worked with, our accident attorneys in Santa Clarita have already handled and managed an array of accident cases, such as:
Car Accidents

The OTS recorded 691 car accident casualties in Santa Clarita in 2021. Common causes of these incidents include driving under the influence (DUI), distracted driving, overspeeding, and fatigued driving. However, other factors, such as poorly maintained roads, a lack of proper lighting and signage, and weather conditions, can also increase the risk of crashing.

Car accidents like multiple vehicle pile-ups, head-on, and rear-end collisions are widely reported, not just in Santa Clarita but all around California. In some cases, there could be multiple liable parties, which can complicate matters. Having a car accident lawyer in Santa Clarita assures that proper steps will be taken during the entire insurance claim process.

Big Truck Accidents

Major highways and state routes pass through Los Angeles County. These roads include Interstate 5 and California State Route 14, which pass through Santa Clarita. With that, motorists should anticipate cruising alongside semi-trucks or large trucks on the road. Truckers frequently have big blind spots and unsafe heavy loads, making them prone to tire blowouts, rollovers, jackknife incidents, and rear-end collisions.

Smaller cars should always drive with caution around these massive vehicles to avoid accidents. Since truck drivers have limited visibility, it is best to maintain a “safe zone” or provide at least a 20-foot distance in front of a truck and 30 feet behind it.

Motorcycle Accidents

The OTS reported 22 motorcycle fatalities in Santa Clarita in 2021, where the common causes of accidents are overspeeding at a corner, unintentional brake lockups, slippery roads, DUI, group riding, careless door opening of cars, and rear-end collisions.

As motorcycles are more prone to accidents compared to other vehicles, authorities urge riders to consider stricter safety measures. These include wearing DOT-approved helmets and reflective vests, proper usage of hand signals, and riding closer to the middle of the road for better visibility.

If you know someone who was injured in a motorcycle accident in Santa Clarita, our attorneys can assist them in pursuing compensation from the negligent party.

Pedestrian Accidents

Being unprotected when outside, pedestrians are encouraged to keep safe at all times. Although jaywalking has been decriminalized in Santa Clarita and the rest of California, our accident lawyers encourage pedestrians to only cross in designated areas. Additionally, we recommend stopping at crosswalks, avoiding using cell phones while walking, and staying on the sidewalks.

Similarly, motorists are constantly reminded to ensure pedestrian safety by reducing speed when entering crosswalks, not overtaking while approaching crosswalks, yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks, and adhering to designated speed limits in areas such as schools, churches, and residential neighborhoods. These areas typically have a speed limit of 25 mph.

If you believe a motorist violated your pedestrian rights, our pedestrian accident lawyers in Santa Clarita can help.

Uber Accidents

There are thousands of commuters who use Uber for convenience. Sadly, ride-sharing vehicles, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), contribute to vehicle crashes, causing pedestrian and motorist injuries.

Aside from Uber accidents, such as head-on collisions and sidesweeps, passengers are also recommended to stay vigilant during the trip. Sadly, apart from crashes, there were also cases of physical and sexual abuse in California, as reported by Uber.

If you are injured while riding in an Uber, or if your car is hit by one, report it through the app. Then, contact one of our Uber accident lawyers in Santa Clarita; we can assist you in negotiating with Uber and filing a personal injury claim.

Other Accident Cases We Handle

Our Santa Clarita law firm can also help with the following accident cases:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Product liability cases (for example, accidents from defective products)
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Hit-and-run cases
  • Bus accidents
  • Dog bites

Our Santa Clarita Accident Lawyers’ Recent Case Results

Our most recent cases might have some similarities to your accident situation and might give you an idea of how we collaborate with our clients.

Our 18-year-old client, who was working on a farm, crushed his legs after a tractor accidentally collapsed on him. We attempted to resolve the claim with the farm owner, but he declined to take responsibility. As a result, we had to take the issue to court, where the jury gave our client a $18.7 million award.

We’ve also won the case of a family whose car was hit by a drunk driver who crossed the double yellow line. The accident killed the mother and seriously injured the father and son. The defendant’s legal team attempted to contest liability, but our lawyer’s extensive understanding of car accident law and tailored strategy persuaded the judge to grant our client $6 million in compensation.

In another case we’ve handled, our client was walking through a crosswalk when he was hit by a heavy truck, resulting in a mild traumatic brain injury. The at-fault party made up a story claiming that our client was using his cell phone while walking. Everyone, including the court, did not believe their alibi, and our client recovered a $5 million liability suit.

Every case is unique, so consult with our Santa Clarita accident attorneys. We will thoroughly look into your case and provide you with clear guidance on how to proceed.

Can Santa Clarita Accident Lawyers Answer Who Is Liable For My Accident?

Yes, your lawyer will tell you that the person whose negligence causes harm or loss to another is deemed responsible for your accident. However, California is a comparative negligence state, which means that authorities consider both parties when determining their percentage of liability in an accident.

To illustrate comparative negligence, imagine this scenario. A motorcyclist rear-ended a car while leaving parallel parking. The car driver sued the motorcycle owner for property damage and a mild neck injury. As the court studied the evidence, the driver appeared careless and did not check his side mirror. In the verdict, the judge found the car driver 40% negligent.

Comparative negligence also dictates the amount of liability between both parties. Take the case above. Suppose the car driver gets $100,000. He will only receive $60,000 because he is 40% responsible for the accident.

In any event, the claimant may be partially liable for an incident. Not unless he will be able to establish and clearly prove the at-fault’s negligence. With years of expertise handling personal injury cases, our Santa Clarita accident attorneys can analyze your case and protect your rights in court.

What Is Negligence?

Negligence is when a person fails to act with the care that a reasonable person would in the same situation, resulting in harm, injury, or loss of life. It also has four key components:

  1. Duty of Care – A person must keep everyone safe at all times.
  2. Breach of Duty – Failure to meet duty of care.
  3. Causation – When a person’s failure to keep everyone safe causes injury, damage to property, or loss of life. Causation is also divided into two parts:
    1. Factual – Determines if the person’s actions directly resulted in anyone’s injury, damage to property, or loss of life.
    2. Legal – Assesses the fairness of holding the person legally responsible for anyone’s injury, damage to property, or loss of life.
  4. Damage – It refers to the damages that anyone sustains because a person fails to fulfill his duty, such as physical injuries, psychological traumas, and financial difficulties. For damages to have a bearing, they must come with evidence.
 

If you find negligence confusing, do not hesitate to reach out to our Santa Clarita accident lawyers. We will explain this further in the context of your case.

Compensation for Accident-Related Injuries

If you sustain an injury in Santa Clarita, you may have a viable case and are entitled to the following:
Economic damagesThese are all of your expenditures from the date of the incident because of the following:
Non-economic damagesThese are non-financial losses such as:
Punitive damages – These are typically non-financial sanctions imposed by the court on the at-fault parties to prevent them from committing the same behavior in the future.

Here is an example of punitive damages. A woman walking her dog came across a family picnicking in the park. The dog snapped its leash and lunged at the family, scratching and biting the children. In addition to the compensation claim, the judge may prohibit the lady defendant from owning a dog in order to prevent similar accidents in the future.

With years of experience handling personal injury and various accident cases, our lawyers in Santa Clarita could promptly give you a clear picture of your potential compensation and a step-by-step guide on how to win a fair settlement.

Statute Of Limitations For Filing Accident Claims In California

The California Code of Civil Procedure §335.1, also known as the statute of limitations, states that all personal injury victims only have two years to file a compensation claim. Your Santa Clarita accident lawyer can explain the intricacies of the statute during your consultation. In general, the following are exceptions to the rule:

  • A minor victim – The parents of the minor victim have the option to push the claim while they are not yet of legal age. In case they do not pursue the case, the two-year deadline will be on pause and will resume once the victim turns 18.
  • Late injury manifestation – Injuries might occur months or years after an accident. In this instance, you can file a claim a couple of years after the date of your medical diagnosis.
  • Injury occurred on a government premise – If your injury happened in a government vicinity, you will only have six months to file a claim to avoid technical forfeiture.

For some, two years is sufficient to file a claim or lawsuit. However, it may not be enough, especially if you are recovering from a serious injury. Working with a reputable law firm can assure you that your claim will be filed on time.

Furthermore, filing the actual case is only one of many facets of a compensation claim. There’s also evidence collection, which can consume a significant amount of your time and have a negative impact on your health.

Consult with our accident attorneys in Santa Clarita right from the start to prevent costly mistakes, such as saying the wrong thing to insurance companies, and help you recover as soon as possible.

FAQs About Santa Clarita Accident Claims
How Do I Know If I Am Eligible To File A Personal Injury Claim?

You may file a personal injury claim if you have suffered an injury due to negligence by a person or establishment. In addition, you can call our hotline at (888) 488-1391 to verify if you are eligible to file a personal injury claim. One of our on-duty accident lawyers in Santa Clarita will assess your case, confirm your eligibility, and explain your next steps in pursuing a claim.

However, filing a claim is more complicated than it appears, particularly when dealing with the other party’s insurance carriers. The at-fault party’s insurance representatives often dupe victims into believing they were ineligible because they were to blame. Working with our accident attorneys in Santa Clarita from the outset will give you an edge in protecting your rights. It helps you avoid disclosing any critical information that could jeopardize your claim because the other party will mainly speak to us.

How Long Does It Take To Settle A Car Accident Claim?

Normally, it takes up to six weeks to agree on a fair settlement under the guidance of your Santa Clarita accident lawyer and the other party.

All settlement documentation for the at-fault party’s insurance company will be provided to your attorney. He will then check the papers for problematic terms that should not be in the agreement. If everything is fine, your lawyer will ask you to sign the document so the other party’s insurer can process and release the check.

But the claim can also take some time for these reasons:

  • The insurance company may decline your demand without a legitimate case.
  • They are unwilling to provide a fair counteroffer.
  • They do not wish to make a settlement.
 

Under these circumstances, your accident lawyer will be compelled to escalate the case to a Santa Clarita court.

How Long Do I Have To File A Claim?

According to the statute of limitations, you only have two years to file a claim, not unless your case falls into the three exemptions mentioned in its clause. You can always contact our Santa Clarita accident lawyers to know if you are qualified for the rule exemptions.

Working with Arash Law will also ensure that your documents are presented to all appropriate offices ahead of the deadline, avoiding technical disqualification.

What Will I Have To Do To Win A Personal Injury Claim?

Establishing and proving the at-fault party’s negligence is the main key to winning a claim or case. However, there are a few things that make it more complicated than it appears. Gathering all the evidence is one thing; attending court proceedings is another. Additionally, the other party’s insurer’s manipulation technique is almost inevitable.

Given these hindrances, we strongly urge you to let our accident attorneys in Santa Clarita do all the legwork for you. Doing so increases your chance of winning your claim and recovering from your injury as soon as possible. We have helped more than 3,000 clients fight their claim battles, and we will do the same for you.

I Am Having Problems Securing A Police Report. Can You Help?

Our accident lawyers in Santa Clarita can expedite the process of obtaining the incident report, so you can leave this task to us. A police incident report is a key piece of evidence in a compensation claim. It is available a few hours after the accident occurs.

Knowing the police station is critical for collecting the report, so ask the officers on the scene where they will file it. However, we completely understand if it has escaped your mind as a result of your injury or, possibly, psychological stress.

Consult The Accident Lawyers Santa Clarita Relies On!

Sustaining an injury and suffering emotional stress from an accident is always serious and requires immediate attention. Similarly, making a compensation claim is as crucial as caring for your overall well-being.

Having said that, you must have a dependable and reputable legal team on your side that will take care of all of the tedious and time-consuming procedures for you, allowing you to focus on your healing.

Our skilled accident lawyers in Santa Clarita are just a phone call away from resolving your case and delivering the justice you deserve.
