In 2019, the car accidents that occurred in California resulted in 3,316 fatalities, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, along with innumerable injuries requiring medical treatment. Many of them were catastrophic and life-altering.
No matter how carefully you drive you have no control over how others drive, and you could be injured or killed by someone else's negligence or driving error. When you have been seriously injured or a member of your family has been killed in a California auto accident, your life may never be the same. You may be unable to work, support your family, or pay your bills. When your injury or loss was caused by another driver, you are struck by the unfairness and injustice of your suffering
Those who suffer an injury in an accident due to the negligence of another should seek the counsel of a seasoned attorney as soon as possible. Doing this will ensure they know what their rights are and what can be done to protect these. An attorney who has experience executing the necessary steps involved in winning a top settlement for his or her clientele is key in obtaining a positive outcome. Your lawyer should be focused on proving that the other driver caused the accident, as well as show how the incident resulted in your injuries, calculate all the resulting expenses, which would include your pain and suffering.
One of the hurdles of any injury claim is dealing with the insurance companies who are known to look after the best interests of their own company, which would mean attempting to pay as little as possible for each claim. Therefore, choose an experienced law firm that has a history of going up against insurance companies and winning large settlements.
When you need help and you pursue justice following a car accident in California, call Elk Grove personal injury attorneys, John M. O'Brien and Grant Zehnder for the experienced legal representation that you require. Having the right lawyer working on your behalf is the best way to ensure that you recover compensation for your damages and hold the person responsible accountable for the harm you've suffered due to their wrongdoing.
A significant difference in your ability to recover a sufficient amount of compensation to reflect the full range of your economic and quality of life damages can be made by what you do (and don't do). Here are some tips on the steps you should take when you've been in an auto accident:
Choose an accident lawyer who is an expert in personal injury and wrongful death claims, not a general practice attorney. A lawyer who does only this type of work has the skills, experience, and reputation with insurance companies that can maximize your recovery. Check the attorney's ratings from Martindale-Hubbell and Avvo.
Select a law firm that is known as being highly experienced and who have the best possible ratings. Attorney John M. O'Brien has the highest possible peer rating with Martindale-Hubble, 5/5 or AV Preeminent, and a perfect 10 (superb) Avvo rating.
