Types of Car Accident Claims We Handle

Although most car accidents are caused by human error, the other driver may not be the only one to blame for your injuries. Car accidents can also be caused by defective auto parts, a defective vehicle, or even a dangerous roadway design.

We handle many different types of motor vehicle accident claims, including those that involve:

  • Distracted driving accidents - Because of modern technology, drivers are often distracted by cellphones, emails, texting, GPS devices, etc. Modern technology also provides evidence that would not have been available in the past, which helps our legal team prove that the other driver was distracted at the time of the accident.
  • Tire blowouts - Tire manufacturers do not always hold to industry standards of quality and safety. When this happens, tires can fail, resulting in serious or even fatal auto accidents. We have experience in holding tire manufacturers accountable for faulty processes, poorly manufactured products, and bad design.
  • Dangerous roadways - Roads that are poorly designed or maintained can contribute to accidents. We know what to look for to determine if there is a defect with the roadway that was a cause of the accident. We evaluate every aspect of your accident to hold all parties who acted inappropriately responsible.
  • Whiplash injuries - This may be the most common injury sustained in car accidents, especially rear-end accidents. However, whiplash can be much more severe than many people expect. You should not jump to resolve your automobile accident until you are certain that you did not sustain substantial injuries.

According to the California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1, the state of California has a two-year timeline. This means you have two years to file your claim before you lose your legal right to file along with your right to recover compensation.

There are some exceptions to this law which can cause the time you have to file to change. An auto accident attorney from our firm can inform you if you meet any of these circumstances.

How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth?

If you were involved in a car accident, you may be wondering how much your claim is worth. The answer comes down to damages—which may include property damage, medical treatment, lost wages, and even emotional distress.

Although there is no way to know just how much your claim is worth until it has been resolved, either through settlement or verdict, there are ways to determine the approximate value of your case by examining a few important factors.

#1: Property Damage

When your car is damaged in an accident, the insurance company will typically pay to have it repaired. If your car was “totaled” in the accident, meaning it is considered to be a complete loss, the insurance company should pay the actual cash value—which is what it would cost to replace your car with a vehicle of similar type and quality.

Furthermore, if other valuable items were damaged in the crash, such as a computer or bicycle, you can seek reimbursement for the fair market value of that property.

#2: Medical Treatment

If you suffered injuries from a car accident, you are entitled to seek compensation for the cost of your medical treatment.

Depending on the extent of your injuries, this may include:

  • Your entire hospital stay
  • Emergency transportation
  • Doctor appointments
  • Chiropractor visits
  • Ongoing physical therapy
  • Medical devices (i.e. braces)

If your injuries require ongoing medical care, such as additional surgeries or physical therapy, you can also seek compensation for the estimated cost of any medical expenses you will incur in the future.

#3: Loss of Income

After a serious car accident, it is likely that you will need to spend time away from work. Typically, this will result in a temporary loss of income. Or, if your car accident injuries are permanent in nature, you may never be able to work again.

You are entitled to seek damages for both your past and expected loss of income. If your injuries have prevented you from ever returning to work in the same capacity, you can also seek compensation for diminished earning capacity.

#4: Pain and Suffering

In many cases, motor vehicle accidents lead to more than just financial losses – emotional distress can also be a serious consequence. If you were injured in the crash, you may be experiencing a great deal of pain and suffering.

When you file a car accident claim, you are entitled to seek compensation for non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional distress. However, this can be difficult to prove without the help of an experienced lawyer.

Importance of Getting Medical Attention After a Crash

One of the more important steps you should take after being an a car crash is seeking medical attention.

Car accident victims often avoid seeking medical help because they feel that nothing is wrong and that they are fine to go about their regular activities. Keep in mind, however, that injuries can take hours, days, or even longer to show symptoms. It is better to be evaluated as soon as possible than to wait too long and risk an even more serious injury.

Seeking immediate medical attention also means that you will have documentation of your injuries. You will have proof that you sustained an injury as a result of the crash, which you can use to strengthen your car accident claim.

It is not uncommon for insurance companies to try to get out of paying a policyholder, or to diminish the value of the claim by asserting that there was no injury. Having a medical record can be used as proof against this argument.

We help clients find the best medical experts to treat serious injuries like:

Car Accident FAQs

Can I Still File a Claim if I Am Partially at Fault?

The short answer is yes. California's pure comparative negligence law makes allowances for people who share partial blame for their accident to still recover compensation through an insurance settlement or lawsuit.

Whatever percentage of fault is attributed to you from the accident will be deducted from your initial recovery amount. This means that if you were offered a $50,000 settlement but were found to be 10% at fault for the car crash, you would receive a final recovery of $45,000.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

It's highly recommended that you report your accident to the police and your insurance company within 24 hours if you sustained an injury. It can look suspicious if you wait to report your accident, unless you are hospitalized and unable to do so. If you intend to file a lawsuit again the negligent party, you must do so before the statute of limitations expires.

In California, car accident victims have two years from the date of the incident to file a claim.
