Frequently Asked Questions

We receive a lot of questions from victims of accidents. Do you know what to do after a car accident? Are you thinking about filing a lawsuit against the other driver for your injuries? Our law firm is here to answer these questions by providing answers to basic questions we frequently hear.

What Should I Do After A Car Accident?

Do not leave the scene of the crash. Get to a safe spot, report the accident to the police and get medical help if you are hurt. You will also need to report the accident to your own insurance company. If possible, exchange information with all other parties involved in the accident. It is also beneficial to get contact information from any witnesses to the crash. Take pictures of the damage to your vehicle and document any injuries and other ways you have been affected after the crash.

I Don't Feel Hurt. Should I Still See A Doctor?

Some injuries do not show any signs or symptoms until days or weeks after a crash. It is important to keep this in mind before you sign any settlement with an insurance company. Seek medical attention as necessary if you are feeling any pain after an accident, even if it occurred weeks ago.

What Can I Do If A Loved One Was Killed In A Car Accident?

You may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party. Only certain individuals and family members are able to file a wrongful death claim and it must be filed within the statute of limitations in California. Our lawyers can help you understand your rights and make sure all options are explored in a timely manner.

What Is My Case Worth?

This depends on the specific issues involved in your claim. A personal injury claim can help you receive compensation for your medical care, lost wages, property damage, and in some cases, your pain and suffering, and punitive damages. Every case depends on how the crash has impacted your life and the defendant named in the claim.

Who Can Be Held Liable For An Accident?

The other driver involved in the accident, the driver's employer and even auto manufacturers can be held liable for car accidents depending on the specific facts of your case.

Do I Need To Work With A Lawyer?

Yes. The insurance company is not on your side. An attorney will protect your best interests and make sure you are taken care of after an accident.
