The time immediately after a car wreck can be scary, confusing, and painful. Hopefully after your car accident, you were able to seek medical attention. If you have not yet seen a doctor or other medical professional since your crash, we advise you to seek treatment immediately.
Many medical conditions caused in an auto accident are not immediately apparent, so even if you do not feel hurt, it is critical to receive a medical evaluation by a healthcare professional. Early intervention can prevent motor vehicle accident injuries from becoming more serious.
Building a Successful Car Accident Case
In order to build the strongest case, it is important that you do not speak to any insurance company about the car accident. Do not give telephonic statements to insurance company representatives as they generally record them. Their job is to represent the insurance company. Our job is to represent you.
It is also important to remember insurance companies can use what you say against you and will do whatever they can to minimize your damages.
Our team will handle all negotiations with the insurance carriers and fight for the maximum compensation available. Insurance companies are well aware that settlement payouts are much greater for car accidents when the victims have lawyers. Do not let them lure you into a quicker payment when you can get more money by working with an experienced Sacramento car accident lawyer.
How We Investigate a Case
When building your case, we will thoroughly investigate the accident, taking in all evidence available, and determine what caused the accident to occur. For instance, one of the drivers might have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol or were texting while driving. The driver at fault may have sped through an intersection or failed to obey a traffic sign.
Our law firm will determine if any of these or other factors might have caused or contributed to the auto accident. We will talk to witnesses and the Sacramento Police Department on your behalf. We will obtain any security camera footage available including footage that the City of Sacramento or Sacramento County may have captured. You do not have to worry about who to contact and what to ask. We will make sure all the right questions are being answered.
After a serious auto accident, your life may change dramatically, leaving you feeling helpless. If your car was totaled in the accident and you cannot afford a new one, you may not be able to provide necessary transportation for yourself or your family. With significant injuries, your medical bills could be piling up and you may be looking at years of expensive physical therapy to help you fully recover. Your injuries may even keep you from returning to work, which can put stress on your family and put your livelihood at risk.
Even if you have just missed a short amount of time at work, we understand that every dollar counts. Some car crash victims are left unable to care for their own families. After working on hundreds of cases involving motor vehicle accidents, we’ve seen countless families struggle with the resulting injuries – both from pain and suffering and also financially. Our car accident attorneys can evaluate your financial situation following the accident to determine a fair amount of compensation that puts your mind at ease and allows you to fully recover.
Fatal Car Accidents
Driving is the most common form of transportation in Sacramento, which means car accidents are a daily occurrence here. Sacramento roads are full of traffic, road rage, and distracted drivers causing many auto accidents that severely injure all parties involved. And unfortunately, we also find out all too often that Sacramento car accidents are increasingly fatal.
Far too often, drivers do not realize the extreme danger that is present in any auto accident, making our streets far more dangerous for drivers. If someone you love was fatally injured or killed in a car accident, contact our experienced car accident law firm for help.
