How Can a Car Accident Lawyer in California Help You?

If you have been injured in a car accident in California you may be able to make a personal injury claim. According to California Law, these claims can cover physical and emotional injuries as well as damage to your reputation.

You can make a personal injury claim on your own. However, this can be a very long process and involves a lot of work if your case is going to be successful.

Experienced car accident lawyers have specialist knowledge that allows them to make strong personal injury cases. So how exactly can they help you build a personal injury claim? Let’s take a look.

Your Lawyer Will Gather Evidence to Build Your Personal Injury Claim

Each year, between 300,000 and 500,000 personal injury lawsuits are made, however, a large number of these will be unsuccessful. Hiring a lawyer will give your claim the best possible chance of success. This is because lawyers have the time, resources, and knowledge to build a strong case on your behalf.

This involves collecting evidence from:

  • Police reports
  • Medical examinations
  • CCTV footage
  • Eyewitness accounts

Collecting evidence requires serious time and resources that most individuals don’t have. It can also help to have connections with local authorities, such as the police departments. Your lawyer will have all of these resources at their disposal so they can easily build a strong case for you.

A Lawyer Allows You to Focus on Your Recovery

As well as collecting evidence, you need to file a huge amount of paperwork in order to make a personal injury claim. On top of this, your paperwork needs to be filed by the correct deadlines if your case is going to succeed.

Because of this, putting together a personal injury case requires a lot of time and organization. This is something that you won’t have if you’re recovering from an accident.

Getting help from a lawyer ensures that you can focus on recovering while your case is underway. They will represent your legal needs and interests and take care of all of the paperwork for your case. You can rest assured that your case is in the best possible hands.

Lawyers Know How to Deal With Insurance Companies

In some cases, your personal injury will be purely accidental. This means that it cannot be attributed to negligent or dangerous driving or poor highway maintenance.

Fortunately, you can still make a claim for a “no-fault” personal injury through your car insurance company. Providing you have the right coverage, your insurance will pay out a claim to cover:

  • Medical bills related to your injuries and ongoing treatment for them
  • Loss of earnings
  • The cost of replacement services you have to use to support you in your recovery

If someone dies in a car accident, their insurance should also cover their burial or funeral costs.

However, every insurance company has detailed knowledge of legal loopholes that they can use to avoid paying out on claims. You need someone in your corner that can match this knowledge and stand up to them on your behalf.

Common Car Accident Injuries to Make Claims For

As we’ve already mentioned, you can make personal injury claims for a range of physical and emotional damage caused by a car accident. Some of the most common car accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash
  • Fractures (particularly to the arms, ribs, and shins)
  • Spinal injuries such as herniated discs
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Burns resulting from accident-related fires
  • Lacerations and bruising
  • Crush injuries
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

All of these injuries can have a huge impact on your quality of life following your accident. They can take a long time to recover from and may require expensive treatment.

On top of this, some injuries can result in long-term issues, such as chronic pain or mobility impairments. Financial compensation won’t change the impact an accident has had on your life. However, it can make living with your injuries easier.

What To Do After a Car Accident in California

The wake of a car accident can be stressful and hectic and most people won’t know what to do. However, to protect yourself legally after your accident there are certain steps you must take. You should:

  • Report your accident to the police and do not leave the scene until they let you go (unless you need urgent medical attention)
  • Get checked over by a doctor
  • Take photographs of the scene, your injuries, and damage to your car
  • Make a note of the police department who attended the accident
  • Inform your insurer about your accident
  • Reach out for support from family and friends while you are recovering

Once you have done these things you can get in touch with a lawyer for help with your injury claim.

California Car Accident Laws to Know About

Having a good understanding of California’s car accident laws can help you to build a strong case after an accident. California law requires all drivers to:

  • Have a minimum of 15/30/5 car insurance
  • Report all car accidents and remain at the scene until the police have authorized it (unless they have urgent injuries)
  • Share their insurance information with other drivers involved in an accident
  • Make a written report of their accident within 24 hours of it occurring
  • Report car accidents resulting in death, injury, or property damage over $750 within 10 days

The statute of limitations also states that you have two years to make a claim from the date of your accident. Keep this in mind if you want to make a claim.

What Type of Compensation Can You Get For a Car Accident?

You can get compensation for a whole range of car accident-related costs. A claim can help you recover the cost of:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of wages
  • Travel expenses following an accident
  • Household assistance expenses

On top of this, you can get compensation for short and long-term physical pain or suffering as well as mental and emotional distress.

You may also be able to recover financial damage to property. For example, if your car was written off or needed repairs after your accident, you can claim for this as well.

Tips for Finding a Great Auto Accident Lawyer

As you can see, if you want to make a personal injury car accident claim it is a good idea to get support from a lawyer. However, you need to make sure that you find the best possible lawyer.

In that case, you should:

  • Make sure you find a lawyer with experience dealing with personal injury claims and car accidents
  • Ask about the resources they have, such as the size of their support team
  • Check their fees and look out for lawyers that offer no-win-no-fee deals
  • Look at their claim success rate and ask whether they have experience taking claims to court
  • Read testimonials from previous clients

This will help you find a lawyer who will win your case and deliver great quality service and communication.
