Garden Grove Car Accident Lawyer
A Garden Grove car accident lawyer can help you determine if you have grounds for a personal injury claim and how much the insurance company should really be paying you.
It’s no secret that auto wrecks are a frequent source of serious injuries. Even a relatively minor rear-end collision could leave you with a painful case of whiplash. Meanwhile, a high-speed rollover or head-on collision could easily inflict devastating spinal damage or traumatic brain injuries. All of these scenarios will likely result in expensive medical care, lost income, and tremendous pain and suffering.
When you weren’t at fault for your car crash, you shouldn’t be the one footing the resulting bills. Nor should your non-economic losses go uncompensated. A Garden Grove car accident lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can help you evaluate the value of your claim and get the funds you deserve from the responsible parties.
Determining Fault for an Auto Collision
Before your personal injury claim can be filed, we first need to establish who was at fault and develop a case that proves it. This will require a full investigation of your crash and will necessitate reviewing all of the available evidence and witness testimony.
Your Garden Grove car accident lawyer will know how to determine fault for a wide variety of different crash types:
- Distracted driving, such as cell phone use and arguing with passengers
- Drunk driving, whether it involved alcohol or drug use
- Drowsy driving, especially when commercial truckers are involved
- Dangerous roads, such as large potholes, steep shoulder drop-offs, and missing guardrails
- Road construction, including accidents caused by reckless drivers and negligent road crews
Getting a Fair and Full Settlement for Your Car Crash
Your final payout will most likely come from the at-fault party’s insurance company. Because insurance companies are for-profit corporations, they’re going to try to pay you as little as they can get away with. This makes it essential to know what your claim is worth well in advance of accepting a settlement offer.
A Garden Grove car accident lawyer from our firm can work closely with both you and your doctors to identify all of the negative effects that your finances and quality of life will suffer. This process will also need to take into account your future damages—not just your current losses.
Financially, your claim should cover medical expenses, lost income and earning potential, the cost of emotional and physical therapy, vehicle repair or replacement, and any other expenses incurred by the crash.
Your non-economic damages, on the other hand, include all of the negative changes that your quality of life has suffered because of the crash or your injuries. This includes pain and suffering, damage done to your personal relationships, emotional distress, lost sexual function, and lost enjoyment of life.
