Advantages of Working With a Los Angeles Car Accident Attorney

A successful car accident claim awards a victim financial recovery to account for the losses caused by another negligent driver.

Angeleno Accident Lawyers handle car accident cases in Southern CaliforniaUnfortunately, collecting financial compensation is not simple without the legal representation of a Los Angeles car accident lawyer.

An insurance claims adjuster will try to reduce a settlement or even reject a car accident claim entirely. Often successful with their actions, insurance company representatives know that the average person is not familiar with car accident claims or personal injury lawsuits, and they capitalize on that.

At Angeleno Accident Lawyers, we put our client's best interests first by assuming communication and negotiations with the at-fault driver's insurance company. This prevents the possibility of being misled into accepting a less-than-fair settlement offer for the injuries and property damage that resulted from their car accident.

Additionally, our clients will not have to worry about the stresses of disputing with the insurance company. This allows them to focus on what matters most–healing from the car accident.

Our experienced car accident attorneys have a proven track record of helping victims recover the financial compensation they are entitled to. This is accomplished by conducting a thorough investigation, compiling strong evidence, and proving liability for the other driver.

Car Accident Laws in California

After a car crash, consult with a Los Angeles car accident attorney as soon as possible.

Motor vehicle accidentsCalifornia car accident laws are complex and follow tight deadlines. Car accident victims decrease their chances of recovering financial compensation the longer they let time go by without filing a personal injury claim for their car accident. This is because the evidence is no longer available, and paperwork filing periods are missed.

When it comes to California personal injury regulations, consider the following:

Common Car Accident Injuries

Depending on the impact, the severity of a car accident can cause minor injuries to catastrophic injuries and sometimes even death.

Seek medical treatment and keep your medical records
Common injuries have devastating effects on the lives of car accident victims and their family members.

Over the years, Angeleno Accident Lawyershas been successful in awarding clients compensation for the following types of car accident injuries and outcomes:
 

Those involved in minor motor vehicle collisions can also suffer an injury that evolves into long-term ailments and chronic impairments. Often, people involved in more minor car accidents do not initially realize they are hurt until days or weeks later, once symptoms arise.

This is why it's so important to be examined by a medical professional either at the scene of the car accident or closely following the date of the incident. Additionally, a car accident case will be more challenging to prove the longer victims put off seeing a doctor. It could be perceived that the plaintiff's physical condition was not as severe as they claimed.

Car crashes are traumatic, which is why so many suffer emotional anguish. Therefore, nonphysical reactions, like psychological pain, suffering, or post-traumatic stress disorder, are also eligible for fair compensation.

Common Causes of Los Angeles Car Accidents

Every car crash is unique and can occur based on several factors.

Due to heavy traffic congestion in Los Angeles, these car accidents occur regularly. These motor vehicle collisions can involve passenger vehicles, bicycles, motorcycles, commercial trucks and delivery vehicles, rideshares (Uber and Lyft), and pedestrians.

At Angeleno Accident Lawyers, our auto accident lawyers have recovered maximum compensation for injuries caused by:
 

Hit-and-Run Crashes

A hit-and-run is any accident in which a motorist collides with a person, object, or vehicle and does not stop to provide information afterward.

Navigating a hit-and-run case is difficult when the at-fault driver cannot be identified. However, specific measures should still be taken to ensure the best possible outcome.

First, report the car accident to the police. This is an absolute must so that an investigation can be conducted. If the at-fault party can be located, that driver will be liable for the crash, and all legal proceedings can commence.

Even if the hit-and-run driver is not found, the police accident report can still be presented to the victim's personal insurance and utilized when collecting compensation. Speaking with an insurance company representative will provide more insight into an individual's policy and how much should be paid based on the coverage agreement.

Uninsured motorist insurance should cover property damage and medical bills from the car accident. However, this coverage is optional in California, so many do not register for uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance.

Our legal team at Angeleno Accident Lawyers can help negotiate with insurance company providers to get people the fairest compensation in a hit-and-run case.

Qualifying damages that can be recovered include:

Most car accident claims vary from case to case. Therefore, a specific amount of how much a particular car accident is worth will sometimes be different across the board. After discussing a car accident case in detail and reviewing the hard evidence, our Los Angeles car accident attorney can estimate how much a personal injury claim is worth.

Safety and Traffic Laws in California

Motoring laws and regulations vary in every state. This is why working with an experienced car accident attorney based in Los Angeles is so important.

Here's an overview of the most relevant laws that apply in most car accident cases:

Reporting an Accident

Regardless of who is at fault, all involved parties must report the collision by calling 911. Most importantly, only leave the accident scene after providing insurance and contact information. If the other driver is injured, notify the authorities that medical attention is needed.

Car accidents must be reported to the DMV within ten days. However, fatal accidents must be reported to the authorities within 24 hours. Failing to report a car accident and leaving the accident scene can be viewed as a hit-and-run, a criminal offense that can result in jail time and expensive fines.

Insurance Company

After a car accident, victims should notify their personal auto insurance company. However, they are not obligated to speak to the other party's insurer. The only details that need to be provided are personal information like a name, contact number, address, and insurance details. When speaking to an insurance claims adjuster, be careful about what is said and never admit fault.

Uninsured Motorist

Although auto insurance is mandatory in California, many motorists are not insured. As a result, compensation cannot be collected from the liable party. However, a personal injury lawsuit can be filed against the defendant to recover damages.

Additionally, victims who purchased uninsured motorist (UM) or underinsured motorist (UIM) insurance will be covered by their personal auto insurance provider. This also applies to hit-and-run accidents where a driver illegally flees the scene and cannot be identified.
